    That's bugged me too. I wonder if you could replace the amber lens with a clear lens to match the front, then relocate the blinker signal elsewhere. Many people have overcome that on the JK after trimming it off of the fender.

    Iím sure there will be a number of aftermarket fenders that will have different lighting configurations. It wonít be quite as easy as shaving the fenders like on the JK.

    They look like they'd be easy to lose with a fender chop. Maybe some of the Chaka aftermarket grills will incorporate turn signal holes in them

    Edit: just looked at pics again, itís on the side. Donít know how I feel about that.
    I am disappointed as well, but I do have to point out that the TJ did not have the front emblem either. Seeing as TJís are my favorite Jeep (although my jku is much more practical) I can live with no emblem on the front of the JL

    JL looks weak

    I'm not sure if these are being poorly made to increase the aftermarket revenue or the engineering dept just screwed up. But these look lousy. I have an '08 2 Dr JK with a boatload of aftermarket stuff like every other Jeeper. But I'll be looking for a 2006 TJ Rubicon soon. In my opinion, the best Jeep there ever was. I won't be wasting my money on this fake JL wannabe Jeep.

    Don't hold back. No sugar-coating it now...

    I def agree - the fender signals/side markers are not a good look. I am not much a fan of the grille changes either. Honestly, I think I only like the interior so far...and not sure I'd want that setup if I had a major off-road build planned either.

    I am looking forward to seeing the additional top offerings.

    I feel like a lot of these comments are similar to the ones I read when the JK came out.... "this too shall pass"

    I 100% agree with the fender signal look being off. I think some lens paint like VHT night shades might help it also, making it blend in to the black part of the fender.

    I feel like my opinion is reversed on the front end and interior as a whole. I really like the exterior, especially from the front. Its a great looking design IMO. The interior looks a little too "techy?" for me... Like a landrover with buttons everywhere. I really like the 2011+ JK interior, seems just clean and simple. But I think I can get used to it, it's got some great things about it also.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
