    Man, there is a lot to like there. I sure as heck like what Alpine is doing there. My 7” uConnect might have to go.

    Where did you see 4 door only? The placard says 2018-Up JL (as is 2018 and 2019), did you see the U and automatically think Unlimited?

    The press release:

    Debut of the i209-WRA-JL

    The Alpine infotainment system in the demo vehicle centers around the i209-WRA-JL, a 9-inch touch screen system making its debut at the SEMA Show. The i209-WRA-JL is compatible with the 2018 four-door Jeep Wrangler and is the first aftermarket 9-inch screen upgrade for this model.

    The i209-WRA-JL’s mech-less design features AM/FM, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto™, HD Radio™, Bluetooth wireless technology and is SiriusXM-Ready™ (requires tuner and subscription, sold separately). The 9-inch capacitive touch screen is surrounded by a ruggedized dash bezel, which has hard keys for the most commonly used infotainment sources.

    Just my opinion, but here we have yet another set of otherwise nice fenders ruined by slapped on turn signal markers that appear to be a complete afterthought. I prefer a more integrated look myself, especially given the cost of these vehicles. Don't want or need a $60k vehicle with $2k fenders sporting $2 dollar markers...

    Thank the feds otherwise they probably would have left them off for looks AND cost savings.

    Is what it is. Sure no marker light at all is fine for a purely off-road vehicle that's trailered to the trail head. But in the real world of street legal vehicles, the marker light is indeed required, so if you're going to design it, please don't half-a$$.. Then again, the marketplace will ultimately dictate, but I invite anyone to throw a like on this post if you agree with my assessment.
