There are a couple of pictures in this thread with a naked grille. Like this one. I have no idea why they are still masking the grille. I can't imagine there are turn signals there, not with turn signals in the fender flares. Makes no sense. At this point, I hope it is blank space so we can add our own turn signals in the grille.

Thats also the export model and it still has its grill wrapped. Look closely and you can see the stickers have some lines in them.

That's still tapped/wrapped, look closer at the centre slots you can see where it ripples.

Good point but I think the contour can still be discerned. And do we know the the export grille is different? Why would it be?

Diesel fuel is designated with a green covering/logo at all the gas stations around here. I see yellow used as E85 most of the time.

Ah..the gas station color, not the color of the plastic gas can...did not know that...thanks.

The flender mounted LEDs... it will be nice if this is an option or only available on the higher end Sahara while the lowly Sport and base Rubicon will have the directionals in the grille... where God intended them to be.

Couple of things to note.

First the grill has some sort of rectangle lights hiding in it. You can see the them zooming in. I outlined them here:

Could it be a place for an action cam ?

Is that an optical illusion or is the side mirror HUGE?

I had made this same comment before, before someone pointed out to me that it is camo covering it. Yes, I was quite concerned that my soon to be new jeep would like like Dumbo as well.

*** Can someone give me some feedback...

First...
Are these Oracle headlights? they sure look like it..

2nd
Are the Side Marker Lights on the fenders going to be LED or will they be as DIM and Bland as the Chrysler 200's Headlight rings? They look very Dull like the basic chrysler 200 headlights ...Because the whole (LED) running lamps now a days are bright and very distinctive, Im fearing That these Lamps will be JUST like the Chrysler 200's bland lights.

The headlights are OEM Mopar/Jeep lights. Not Oracle.

Lights in the flares are LED, at least for some models. And regular halogen for base models. The halogen version can be seen on the export model a few posts up.

I doubt the grille will have any lights or anything fancy under the headlights, I think y'all are just seeing ghosts in the tape or JPG artifacts from the photos being taken from far away and then enlarged. If there were going to be lights in the grille, they'd shine through the tape when they're on, just like we've known from early on that there were going to be light strips in the fenders from very early on because they'd show through the black vinyl camo. Plus for legality reasons they'd have to be visible during road testing. With the forward facing turn signals in the flares, there's no reason for additional lights in the grille. It's no different in that respect than how the TJ was set up.
