    I think the next JL addition to the family should be based on the Africa concept:
    - Longer wheelbase
    - 3rd row seats
    - Spare underneath like on the Gladiator and Africa
    - Towing capacity like the Gladiator

    I'd be down for something similar (though it looks like an FJ with that white top)

    A Jeep Wrangler without a spare tire on the rear is like a garment without buttons.

    Other than the towing capacity (and diesel) it sounds awful to me.

    To each his own though.

    I read the subject as Africa Twin rather than Africa Trim...:facepalm:

    As far as the Africa concept itself, I would say the rear door needs to be redone to what we have on our current JL with hard top. Bottom half swings out, glass swings up... none of that G-Wagen rear door nonsense.

    Any idea what new features the 2020 Jeep Wrangler JL will have besides the electric hybrid option? Towing capacity change?

    I like it. But that’s based on a JK, isn’t it?

    I like the idea and, after the Gladiator was announced, I wondered if they might make such a vehicle based off a Gladiator with the back closed in. The Gladiator platform would offer the length and payload capacity. All the they would need to do is put a closed back on it with a side-swinging hatch. Not sure how to get around the bed being split from the cab on the Gladiator.

    I know, easy for me to say...

    Fail
    - Roof doesn't come off... right there... that is the first major fail. That's blasphemous for a Jeep. This alone is reason enough to douse the Jeep symbol with gas and burn it off. True Jeeps never have needed and will never need a roof.
    - Spare tire underneath... go by a truck, Higlander or minivan.
    - Third row seat... your soccer mom called and wants to buy it.

    This thing looks like an FJ, 2012 Pathfinder and a soccer mom had a kid.

    Definitely like this idea. It would mean the loss of a removable top but maybe a good vehicle for a pop-top camper like Ursa Minor.
