Jabs - you’re the man! Thanks!

Keep em’ coming...it’s just making it easier for us to order a JL without seeing one in person.

These pics so far are great. So much has been revelead regarding interior and exterior details. Not much left really in terms of main details.

But..... where are the Sahara’s with the power slider. The anticipation is killing me!

My color choice is granite but now with all these new design cues and lines I think a lighter color will show them off better. Like billet!

Love everything about the JLU itself but I must say it's gonna need 35's pronto. With the bigger wheel wells those 32's look tiny.

How much higher is the JL than the JK? Is it confirmed it's higher?

they look looooooong. or is it just my imagination? the space between the wheels looks immense
Yep, it's because the hood, which was already long to start with, got stretched and the windshield is at more angle now too...so it gives the perception that the front of the vehicle is as long as a limo. Looks terrible. However, the new fender flares and body lines are nice.

I keep seeing a line in the back of the hard top that would make this plausible. Hope he’s right. That would be awesome.
The owners manual says otherwise.
It is in the order as a 3 piece hard top, so I think that dealer is mistaken.

I thought I'd hate those wheels, but I'm loving them since I saw the side view of them in the pic they released of the red 2 door at Sema. I think they'll look great in person.
The Standard 3 piece hard top is just like JK no side panel removal.

The Power Top hard top just like old Liberty sunroof, has the removable side panels. (webasto contract)

Yep. These look even worse than the chrome lip wheels in production guise.

So these are the stock wheels? If so, just need to have them painted black. They look fantastic in all black.
