Just got this in my email today and those 2 JL in the video are close to the rendering we have seen on this page?




Is it me who's seeing wrong or what???

Thanks Billy. That's what I was thinking but It's kinda weird to see it like that in a video.

Huh they are listing the Unlimited as Granite Crystal Mettalic. Do they know something we don't? It's probably nothing but I would be so stoked if we got that color year 1.

They also have one listed with an eco-diesel.

Not sure they really know.

But I entered the contest just in case!

From what I've seen they don't have any insider info. Their blog posts about the JL all cite this site as the source.

I came here to post this. Almost had a heart attack, but then realized the hinges are wrong - but that is pretty damn convincing.

Unless XT and whoever this Deegan guy is have contacts at Jeep, I wonder how long it'll take to actually claim the prize. You can't just whip up a suspension system and armor after the JL comes out, slap them on, and hand over the keys. It's going to take time to engineer all that stuff, make sure it works properly, and most importantly, build it to last. Every single lift kit that came out for the JK in '07 and '08 was utter trash and that was because everyone was in a rush to get them on the shelves. It took a few iterations and revisions to get them right.

Most of the Jeep Aftermarket Parts Manufactures will get CAD files probably around end of summer. Should be more then enough time to have parts ready by December.

Based on comments from other sources, I'd say they already have the basic 3D CAD files and have had for at least 9 months sofar (even for a 'lowly' secondary vendor).
The interesting thing is that Toledo Blade article today that stated they already have made 200 prototypes. Many of these may just be roughed out skeletons, husks, etc, nowhere near an entire vehicle, but that may be enough for some after-market folks who just need to test attachment points and clearances, etc.

They said they are doing the drawing on Nov. 15th and the giveaway on the 24th. Sounds to me like they expect to have their hands on two JLs and associated aftermarket parts before Nov. 24th
