How dare they, Ford copied Jeep! I mean yeah, really, they literally copied everything. They put on 4 wheels like jeep only larger, they put in an auto transmission, only more speeds, they put in a V-6 only with more power, they put in an infotainment screen, only with bigger and better screen, they put removable doors, only they can be stowed in the vehicle and the mirrors stay attached to vehicle and the doors are half doors, they put in a manual transmission only Ford has a crawler gear, they put in lockers only they went with a lower ratio! How dare they!

Seriously. They took every weak spot the Wrangler had and not only improved on them, but absolutely killed it with them.

I always thought that they should have lengthened the 2dr just a tad.
I agree. The 2-door looks just a bit stubby to me these days. Maybe that's just because we live in a world where practically everything is 4-doors and slightly bigger than past models, but yea. I think the 2-door bronco is looking better than the 2-door jl.

IMO the 2dr JL is about perfect, Nothing size-wise I would want changed except the puny 17 gallon gas tank :(

The vehicle hasn't even be released yet. That's awfully premature of you to suggest.

Ok I’ll suggest it again on Monday when the rest of you have seen it and the technical details. My statement will stand.
Owner experience when the vehicle is actually released will dictate whether or not they improved on the Wranglers weaknesses and “absolutely killed it”. Not the release on Monday.

The Raptor front torsion differential would be nice for this vehicle.
