So this was on the cover and inside of my Car & Driver today. This doesn't look like a prototype - this looks like the done deal.
Note the Renegade style taillights

Edit: So I've gone back and looked hard at the photos. I can't tell if this is a photo-shopped rendering or if these are actual prototypes.
The placement of the vehicle in the second photo is obviously edited, but these really do look like a well-finished prototype. Time will tell I guess.
A couple tidbits in the story is a claim that the frame will be hydro-formed, and that the body will be a combination of aluminum, steel & plastic

That looks pretty legit or at least, a pretty good representation of what we might be able to see both on the new truck if it actually happens as well as the JL. Looks good but I wish it wouldn't look so much like a JK.

I agree. Would be cool if they had a slightly different truck specific grill or different flares or something to differentiate the two.

If that's the pickup box that's gonna be made, then honestly, it came out better than what I was expecting.

That's crazy! In the second picture it looks like it sitting in the Elder Dodge showroom.. The place where I bought Steel!

Umm, I bet the front ends different.

Kinda like the change from CJ to YJ. Change the grill and call it new

Not that I wouldn't want the truck, I'm just tired of the JK and was really hoping for something fresh and original. Oh well.

Notice the rear window has hinges...

If I could guess, this was a good photoshop and the back window of a hard top was just used.

Probably a liability issue? I can picture some dumbass driving down the freeway with no roof trying to haul sheets of drywall.
Or slamming on the brakes and shit flying into the passenger compartment..

I'll bet you're right. You can't even rent a trailer from U-Haul unless you have a hardtop.

That uhaul policy is the dumbest thing I've ever heard... went to rent a trailer and had to go back and put my hard top on.

I really hope it has a removable top though. Otherwise it won't be as fun. Especially if they keep the removable doors as an option.

If the wheelbase is 126" or less, I am a buyer!

This! That rear window on the truck is stupid too.

I'm not a huge fan if for no other reason than it looks like a wrangler conversion.

As for the style elements, I read an article quoting a jeep designer (can't recall name) that it would be highly unlikely for a production vehicle to have a stamped tailgate. Just too costly from a Q/C perspective. The rear window is interesting. On the red truck it almost looks as if the roof is separate over the front and rear passengers. Removing that section and the window, could possibly be a "topless" option with that rear rear section concealing a rollbar/cage.

All speculation I suppose until the actual truck is released.

It doesn't look bad but I really hope it has a removable hard top/ soft top.

I don't know that I'd say that it's ugly, because I like the basic form of the jeep. But you're exactly right! Anything looks "ugly" until it's modified!

This thing rolling around 3 1/2 inch lift and 37s at a minimum...nice and wide, would look sick!

Point made below! Thanks Bruiser!

April fools photoshop. Rear doors not tinted but hatch is. Hatch weatherstripping won't clear bed cover.

Nah, April Fools was last month - story about some bazilionaire building a car that runs on Apricot pits. :cheesy:

I finally made it home and had a chance to look at these.

Photoshop junk....look at the difference in length of bed between the blue and red behind the rear fenders. The Red is significantly longer.

I second that.. Looks like photoshop to me.

I'd be ok if it was a JK body update with an all new everything else.

I just hope it doesn't end up anything like the concept truck displayed at ESJ -- a PLASTIC-y truck with space-age grill/front. Yuck!!!

I'd drive it. Not quite the 'Brute' I was hoping for but I still like it. The wife is already looking for a Jeep of her own, and this should come out right around the time were looking to buy a new vehicle for her. She's already agreed if it's a 4 door truck, it will be her next vehicle.

I agree with Eddie...the hinges makes me think this is a photoshop deal...

fyi...if they go with a similar top to the brute, you can take it off...it's just a bit more work than a jk...

Ya, I am in agreement now. At first glance this looked like a done deal. The hinges are a clear indication of photoshopping.

I agree, but I am trying to keep an open mind about it. Every new Wrangler platform has been more capable than the last and I hope that trend stays true. I guess all we can do is hurry up and wait.

Huh...I rent U-Haul trailers all the time with the top off and with my Trek Top Nx and they never say anything. Guess it just depends on where you go.

Just waiting on actual pics to decide if I go with this, the Tacoma Pro, or the Colorado ZR2. Probably all going to be priced the same. If only I could afford the Raptor:broke:
