Great news is: rubicon axles 4.1, 4:1 transfer case. Bad news is bumper, fenders and small tires.

Did I read that right? Why does the Sahara get more torque than the Rubi?

now the real question will be : HOW MUCH .....

and it could be interesting to know if : it’s possible to install steel bumper, high fender in aftermarket... ( even OEM parts)

Hope price will be reasonable ... because... the imported who are actually available are ... seriously guys it’s wrangler ... not a G classe ;-)

Still none
Why those fenders, bumper and wheels? Well, European importer just think we are stupid here. They think that, as there are no many aftermarket parts dealers here, as Quadratec and so, we will have to buy them those parts.
Of course they are wrong because we buy to Quadratec and so.
I was going to buy Rubicon, but, if it finally comes as in those photos, I will definately buy Sport and build it up my way.

By the way, one question: Why is it possible to fit in Rubicon 35 tires without a lift and it's impossible in Sport? Just because of fenders? Or Rubicon is already lifted?

this graphics with numbers are inaccurate .. Better to be switched for credibility.

It kind of looks to me like the hoods are different than the US version.
Like bulge in the center starts near the leading edge of the hood. On US version it dips down before the bulge starts, and it starts a few inches back from the leading edge.
Thoughts?
