Is anyone here planning to check out the JL in person? Hope it's going to be there and not just siting on a pedestal but allow the general public to sit inside.. :please:

Also hope they show a 2 door Rubicon and both hard and soft tops. Unless we wait until probably Jan/Feb deliveries it'll probably be the only chance we get to see it before ordering.

Anyone remember what they did for the JK?

It's a 5-6 hr drive for me which is doable but long. It would suck to go only to find out they won't let anyone touch or sit in it. I might have to wait to find that out before trekking out there.

If it were a concept being revealed then no chance, but it's the production Wrangler being revealed. So hopefully they have several of them available on the show floor for people to climb in and out of.

I wonder if we'll see theatrics during the reveal like the JK reveal back in 2006! :clap:

BTW they had multiple JKU's at the auto show debut - this was another one. So we're likely going to see multiple JL's at the LA show debut.

Hopefully the reveal isn't a bunch of Rubicons... but it probably will be because they want to show off the best models

Looks like they had some kind of live driveable terrain in the background. Now that would be a sweet way to introduce the JL & JLU - to let people try them out on a driving course!

Man that first gen JK interior looks dated.

I like the useless nets that for some reason get really stretched out after never using them.

What do they think owners would store in them? Dirty socks? Fish?

That design with a more modern gauge cluster, better radio, better wheel, and plastic that doesn't scratch when you sneeze on it would still look good today. I always dug the original JK dash design, but man, the materials they used were awful.

Anybody know what day they will be revealing the JL at the auto show? I live about 3 hours away and plan on attending just as soon as I know which days to go. Or will they have them there the whole time?
