JLWF reader Jared D. sent us these pictures he captured of a Billet Silver 3.6L JLU Sahara prototype testing in Florida. Big thanks to him!

You're just looking at it from a styling standpoint. The bigger rear side window will give better lighting inside and also better visibility from inside. Also not having to unzip to remove the windows is a welcome change.
Nonsense. BOTH the top and bottom are noticeably lower than the door windows. That doesn't make the window bigger, it makes it misaligned. From a styling standpoint, it looks like the back window was designed by an idiot incapable of taking measurements. I am utterly dumbfounded this was allowed.

Are those bigger brakes, or not?

(Edit: Man, how did they scratch up that rim so bad in just a few weeks?)
More like months. That is a test mule, not a production JL. The pictures from underneath show that this mule has some miles on it. Nothing looks brand new on it. They pile up miles VERY quickly on these things, so even if it isn't that old, it can still have lots of miles on it. They run them day after day, and probably at night, too, piling the miles up for trouble shooting, testing, and validation.

The Sahara wheels are seriously UGLY! How could the design team approve of such hideousness?????

Tail lights aren’t correct, are they.
They are the correct lights. This doesn’t have the LED lighting pkg. If you look at the front end, it has the non-LED headlights and non-LED DRLs.

I do find it to be a “nickel and dime” situation because the JK offers standard LEDs on both Sahara and Rubicon.

For me this indicates hard work and that the experiences have reached a maximum

I really wish the Wrangler badge on the side was an emblem like “Jeep” and “Sahara” vs just a decal.
