    Now that Jeep has officially revealed the 2018 Wrangler JL, it looks like they're no longer shy about hiding their newest baby!

    Those wheels gotta go. Is the bolt pattern the same as the JK?

    Both look to have the hi-line flairs and the 33"/285 BFGs. The red one even has the white letters out - first time I've seen that. I wonder if there will be a different MPG rating with the 285s?

    Those front fender flares make the wheels look tiny. The flares seem soooooooooooooooo long.

    Absolutely love the new grille and hood. Much more upright and aggressive looking, wish they got more pics of it up close.

    I looked at the above photos next to some JK photos - looks the same to me. If there's a diff, its only a few inches.

    I'm definitely liking the body colored fender flares from the reveal picture better than black ones. I think I'm gonna go for body colored flares when I order my Rubi. Just waiting on news about the diesel, and what packages AEV will come out with for the JLU before I pull the trigger on one.

    Appears the extra length is all forward of the doors. 35's look to fit without lift. Don't care for the wheels shown. Any clue on what the Sting Gray looks like? Thanks huge for the order tracking. I will be ordering a JLU in 18 for sure.

    Still hate the front end. Looks like some Chinese clone, or a PowerWheels toy, that's trying to look like a Jeep, but still keep its distance from a lawsuit. :puke:

    The back end looks a bit odd too. I think its the body colored tailgate hinge making it look too monochrome. :facepalm:

    Hay, if they really wanted to toy with our minds, they could have pulled up to the diesel pump, when they posed for these pics. :giggle:

    I hope the aftermarket has replacement fender flares soon, because the stock ones look horrible. Everything else is looking pretty good
