    never understood the teasing nature of this. get everyone boned then shrug and call it an unavailable one-off concept. i’m glad they get to express themselves at work? what’s it do for us? yawn

    I wouldn't mind having a Jeepster type of hard top.

    FCA is usually teasing future MOPAR stuff with these concepts, not necessarily full vehicle trims. We know half doors will be coming eventually, and that slantback hard top wouldn't surprise me either.

    It's a way for Jeep to throw out some ideas to the public to get their opinions on the designs. It's like beta testing to see what people really like or hate so they can possibly implement the ideas in future designs. As of now, it really is only eye candy to us, but some of the things could eventually be implemented.

    They showcased this jeep at Easter safari before the JL was released. Does that front grille look familiar? Auto Industry typically builds concepts like these to promote their band, and to also help direct the design of their marketed vehicles

    I understand the frustration but Jeep (FCA) is not making the tops. Bestop makes the tops for Jeep. A lot of people are angry with FCA about this but it really is an issue with Bestop and that is where the frustration should be directed towards.

    I knew they might think of highlighting that body line and the vent in future special additions.

    Two-tone red-and-white paint job, and the noticeable "Jeepster" badge.

    I really like how they carried out the two-tone look with the angled hard top. I would like this in the "Unlimited" just as much.

    I truly wish they had a bunch of two-tone choices just like this. Awesome look!
