Just saw my first JLU and must say I was quite impressed.

One word on the interior....QUALITY!

The use of materials on the interior are quite impressive....steering wheel, dash, knobs, etc.

Seats were more comfortable than expected.

Priced at $40,000 it had few options.

It had the all season tires, which seemed the all terrain tires would have been a better fit.

It must have had LSD to get the All-Terrain tires?

Edit: Mis-Read your post. It would need LSD or the alternate wheels to get the All-Terrain tires.

I really do not like that little bridge piece between the bumper & fender. European JK models had that also. I would have thought it was for export only...

I couldn't agree with you any more. Good thing they are easily removable. If they come on my JT I'll be leaving them in the dealers recycling bin. Theres no way I'm pulling my new truck off the lot looking like that:cwl:

I hope the 1st one I see is on a dealer lot. If it is just driving down the road I'm going to look like Danny from Count's Kustoms. Hay buddy I like your JL pull over and lets talk about it. It will only take a minute.:movember:

Believe you can get either tire, doesn’t require the optional wheel.

that thing needs some rock rails! looks incomplete...
Wheels are rock rails and it’ll look awesome, there is a whole lot of potential in the sport for sure.
