    Evolution for sure. Door/window height changes along with the drip rail running all the way back on the hardtop to close to the corner. Interesting that the rear section is covered basically where I think the modular aspect of the new hardtop will be seen. The corners are either hard or will be soft if power top is installed. Also interesting that the drip rail runs that far back. If the side window are removable it would make sense..... :)

    Backup camera confirmed? Since it is going to be required on all vehicles by May 2018 this has to be the least shocking aspect of the camouflaged Wrangler.

    Roughly, but the JK will overlap the JL... for a short period of time both old and new will be produced.

    I don't see the door/window height change but drip rail definitely runs all the way back now. I like the new running boards. Don't have useless bumps and seems to be deeper too.

    So exciting. I am almost as excited for this than I am for the Demon. 2017 is going to be a very good year.

    Lets keep track:

    Compass
    Durango SRT
    Trackhawk
    Wrangler
    Demon
    Cherokee refresh

    Yep, looks like the updates are finally coming. Sound like 2018 will be a great year too.

    Looks like a Sahara, judging by the side steps, the wheels and the road-biased tires.

    Hard to tell, but I would even venture say those look like 33" tires on those 18" rims. That would be up from current 32".

    The first picture, showing the side and the rear cover, makes the Wrangler look like a more utilitarian Grand Cherokee to me.:D

    Things like the rounded window edges and what not are all aero tricks to make JL fuel efficient.

    I was thinking that and it increases rigidity, much like the aircraft manufacturers use rounded edges.
