    The JK was more capable than the TJ out of the box though

    Ford or Chevy may smoke and make a lot of noise and stink like crap

    Stand next to a Mercedes Benz sprinter diesel with blue tech
    The noise is not there. Not a mechanical injection pump electric & they they run cleaner than a gas motor

    Fair enough. I have to agree with that.

    I have to hand it to FCA. Normally when we're this close to a release, there've been photos already, and pre-production units are seen in the region without covers. We're just ~3 months from public availability and they're still keeping it under wraps. I remember stumbling across a dozen Camaros in Stockbridge, years ago (current gen), about 6 months before release. It was a big photo opp event for the journalists. Was cool. Not so with JL.
    Thanks for the post! This is one of the biggest things I miss about living near Detroit. Seeing all of the new cars running around! We used to go drive around the GM proving grounds to try and see stuff. In '85 we saw them driving a convertible vette around outside the proving grounds.(for you non-vette fans, that was a year before they came out).

    I did not get a picture of it, but I saw two JL test rigs driving towards me. It was very clear that they have a soft top similar to what the Jeep Liberty has with the retractable top with the roll bar incorporated into the body. They were closed, so I couldn't tell if they accordion back or go into a roll. But it looks like the rumors were true.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
