Not sure that is a Recon. Couple of interesting observations:
  • Standard fenders (not hi-line)
  • No steel bumpers (standard on previous Recons)

Just want to share the pictures, didn't see any of them here.

Let me know if someone posted them before, or if source website link is allowed

yeah, looks like a aftermarket one, thought they would have a proper design for most wanted feature.(maybe?;))
I haven't seen a close up pic of the JL's new rear camera, but that certainly looks like this could be it.

Plain Rubicon, nothing Recon about it.

Standard camera, standard export bumper, Standard rims & tyres.

I wonder what triggers the hi-line fenders. There have been a handful of Rubicon's with the hi-line fenders (including the teaser picture from Jeep) and a few without. Pretty sure all of the Rubicons in the New Zealand photo shoot had them.

All the official pictures released by Jeep of the rubicons have high line fenders

Well, the NZ Wranglers were N.Am. trim, not export.

The Hi-line fenders would increase the gap with the Euro bumper, thus negating/reducing its purpose, so not sure if they will even offer it for those that require the pedestrian bumper.
