    It looks like that marketing department is starting to try to change the way Jeep vehicles are sold in U.S.A.,

    In many countries all delaerships have their demo cars that are there so potential customers can test the vehicles and than make custom orders.

    Custom orders allow FCA to increase margins since very often custoemrs order additional options (usually they sepnt more than they programmed initial budget).

    I don't see anything different here than in the past..
    It's not uncommon for early models, especially on significantly revised vehicles, to be used for sales training. It's what my friend traveled the country doing when the 1996 minivans came out. In each area, there was a minivan waiting for him to show the features to the sales staff before they were commonly available. That way the sales staff was ready to go when the inventory started arriving. I know they've had the "drive off" events in the past fro the same purpose, just in a common location.

    But it would better, for a model like the Wrangler, to use it for customers test drives, also offroad, and than have the option + Mopar display, like the one at SEMA, for the additional options abd parts that can be ordered.

    Test drive car, with offroad section + diplay for options, colors, ... is what they use in most countries outside NAFTA for Jeep.
    Some also have a small area or a place to take clients for a little bit of off-road.

    An "easily removable" added piece I presume?

    For me I wish the subwoofer was shallower and the grill fit flush.
    Seems like a good way for it to get banged up.
    Why intrude into cargo space just for a speaker?

    But thanks for the pictures.

    Could be a couple different reasons why. They could use a smaller sub but then it wouldn't be worth the upgrade and you need some sort of box to actually get the sub to work correctly.

    good guess was thinking exactly the same. Must be considered "standard equipment" to count for EPA just like ESS must default to ON

    Another idea is, like the Radio surround, it's waterproofing for the sub & wiring behind it.

    Aw, come on, you could be the next YouTube viral hit! :D

    I hope they have a JL at the Philly auto show next month. I'm going to try my best to make it there with my wife and kids after working all night. Jeep Gods have mercy on me. Lol.
