    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).
