The first picture of the hood looks different from all the pictures we have seen

The second image of the front bumper is different from the fenders they saw in advance

Now what are your expectations and guesses about these images? Thank you .

Likely first pic shows something under the camo and ontop of the hood like a foam block or something to provide separation from the hood and provide air flow over the top hood vents... and possibly to keep the camo from flapping and scratching the hood.

I'd need to see what you mean by the second image bumper/fenders, I don't see some dramatic change/addition/omission.

Thank you for sharing and interacting.
I was thinking that this bulge might be for the diesel engine "Hurricane" .. or maybe for a 15-year-old version .. But you may remember this old link that made me puzzled about this swell bonnet.

As for the front bumper, you may notice very small emitted light. This may explain that there is a different iron source than what we have seen before.

Under the camo, the driving and directional lights seem to consistent with what we're seeing more exposed now. I think the amber rectangle thingy is something that has been added to the camo itself, and not part of the fender.

That drawing in the other thread is interesting, especially since the leaked CAD files show a similar front hood for the JT, but for the JK I think it was to keep the camo covering away from the body, likely mainly for hiding features, but possibly also for venting/air flow or protecting the surface.

As for the second part, still not getting what you're driving at as I believe similar to Walt A's statement that the white parts mirror mostly what we've already seen, and the orange/amber side markers are add ons to the camo, not the body, in order to improve visibility when cloaked by the camo.

Could be something tacked on the bumper in pic #3 (maybe winch?) and I believe most would like #1. Hopefully the JL Hard Rock and above still have the removable bumper sides. Would be surprised if not!

This is true .. Now it's almost certain that the hood is for JL Diesel
Look at this video and listen carefully from seconds 0:30 to 038 .

(With regard to options)

We saw the types of tires used by the company
Two of the same class frames were both remarkable and wonderful to me

I agree with you and would like to see a different bumper in one of the editions.

Back to the diesel JL hood
Suppose that the engine bulge is not a camouflage or similar and has nothing to do with the flow of air towards the diesel engine. Do we expect that the one in the picture below is a groove hole for airflow towards the engine?

I am interested in this part because the diesel engine loses 20% of power almost because of this.

Some images are similar to those grooves

Some of them had some ideas for maintaining power.
