    If anything it looks tougher, especially stock, and no the panels are not dead flat, but anything with even slightest engineering knowledge understands that isn't more durable just easier.

    I feel as though people that have no useful knowledge of this vehicle just like to jump on the band wagon and start saying stupid things in the comment section of articles. Perhaps it’s fun to them to chime in. To me, it just demonstrates a profound lack of understanding of what this vehicle is, and what it’s capable of.

    It’s one of the many great things about Allpar, is the fact that a lot of useful information is shared here from a variety of sources. It’s not just, “this sucks” or “this is cool”, it’s the how’s and whys of why things are and are not done in the automotive world. I’ve definitely learned a lot here, that’s for sure.

    Even the lights in the fenders go back to the 1997 Jeep Icon Concept

    Lots of Concept heritage thrown into JL.

    I can't wait to see how they did it... My sister company is doing a lot of In mold decoration and was in Portugal that does all the wood,plastic,metal molds..... there is some cool ways to do this now. Wonder if they went cool or went conventional.

    The two wheels shown in the options are very nice. I like them better than the popular wheel on JK.

    I dig how the windshield angle matches the rear fender-flare angle and is, kind of, accentuated by the door-opening.

    I like that 2" lift...no tracbar relocation brackets... no replacement driveshaft... and besides shocks, springs, a couple of extended control arms, and extended sway links and bumpstops, nothing else.

    Implies that they really thought out the suspension and steering geometry well. I also love that the lower control arm brackets on the frame side are tucked up a lot more out of the way. On the JK those are rock magnets :)

    20 years ago if you told people buying new TJ's that they'd someday be able to buy something like this off the showroom floor--35's with almost no modifications and 37"s with only 2" lift... they would not have believed you.

    It shows from FCA, Mopar, and Jeep engineers going out and riding trails with all types of Jeepers and then come out with a product to suit all there needs. Jeep will always be #1 in 4X4 world.

    And you don’t have to remove the front portion to lower the windshield.

    Awesome wheel choices. Love the "gear" design. They are all pretty nice however.
