    It kinda looks like the windshield might still fold... I had heard they were doing away with that feature...

    It also looks like the door handles don't have the button to open them anymore. They look like traditional pull handles.

    I live out in Pahrump Nevada and I have been seeing these all summer. They have been testing them out in the desert on local trails. I have tried to follow them a couple of times but have been going the wrong direction and by the time I get turned around they disappear.

    What's the big deal with taking a picture, if it is sitting there without the cover on it they can't be worried about people seeing it finally?

    Looking good to me, I like the fender vents and want to see what that vented hood looks like

    They were supposed to get rid of it as keeping it adds a lot of weight but in the end, I hear they decided to keep this useless function.

    Not exactly paddles but I would like the pull handles.

    Beats me. Back when the JK was about to come out, they ran it out on the Rubicon totally uncovered. Nobody even knew what they were looking at. Of course, Jeep was run by Daimler back then and Fiat has their own idea about things.

    The big deal is when you step foot inside the factory you sign an agreement that says you will abide by their rules. One of their rules is no photos.

    No one says you have to go into the plant, but if you do you sign their agreement. FCA is spending a bunch of cash to unveil the JL at the LA autoshow. The last thing they need/want is some muppet screwing it up for them. And I would be willing to bet the photo was taken by a supplier who no longer works on the JL program. Union workers do some stupid #*@$, but taking pictures isnt one of them. Smoke weed on company time? Sure. Take a photo of a prototype build? No chance. Even the UAW couldnt save you.

    No doubt. There's something oddly satisfying about the metallic "thud" you get when you yank the handle on a YJ or TJ

    I would say, based on the hinge placement being below the embossed body-line, that they intend on offering a half-door.

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.
