It will be a JK, but it will be a mature design, whereas a JL might leak and have other first year issues.
True. None of the now-mature JK design, have ever been known to leak. ;)

Yes, yours would be a JK... No offense, but it shocks me that people pay as much money as they do and don't really know what they're getting. Again, no offense
Even more disturbing is the fact that most salesmen/women have no idea what the JL is or that it's coming soon. If you mention "the new Wrangler" to them, they look at you like you've got 3 eyeballs.

Ok, so they may still leak. I must have gotten lucky. My 08 has never leaked, from either the soft or hard top. Not a drop.

The only leak I get is the leak through the pinch hole in my soft top from folding it back, which I have already had replaced once, and they supposedly did something to prevent it from happening again. Hopefully they figure something out eventually. I am sure it is partly user error in how I am folding it back, but I don't have the time or energy to be a perfectionist and ensure I fold it back correctly every time I fold it back

I'm looking at
  • TT4 - LT285/70R17C OWL Off-Road Tires
What does the `C` after R17 mean? Load rating?

Looks like OWL just means white text on the sidewall

Most LT-C rated tires I've seen have less load carrying capacity than P rated tires that are on all other Jeeps and 1/2 ton pickups, so it kind of sucks. But, I guess it's a trade-off because you don't want harsh LT-E rated tires on a Jeep either.

Yea we've all been spoiled with the constant news/pics lol. It's only been a few days since the last spy pics. And so much info's already been revealed here not sure how much is left except for performance specs, actual ordering guides, and price. But those aren't coming until Oct-Nov.

Hey @JAY, any chance you're able to add the new leather options to the first post in here? There are two new leather options for MOPAR premium leather with a slight up-charge over the standard leather - I believe these might be factory Katskinz? One is perforated and one is stitched.
