    Just a little bummed if they rehash the current look just resized.

    If that's the case - why the heck hasn't the Cherokee got a "refreshed" front end??

    Maybe the change to the Cherokee is a lot more dramatic...

    Well instead of the Renegades X's made with different color lenses, it looks like JL's will be made with all LEDs

    Great find. I wonder why they aren't showing it at the LA show? Perhaps it'll steal the spotlight from compass? And at least now there's visible evidence the windshield is fixed. You can tell there were, but the hood doesn't look like the junk yard find previously posted on ALLPAR. Still pretty exciting to see bits and pieces uncovered.

    The front bumper outline is also a new look we haven't seen before. Wonder if it's the real thing or just a styling exercise. I would find it hard to believe (like the recent hood example) that so much of the current styling (also bumpers) would stay the same. Evolution still needs to have a different look.
    Hope this is the case. Newer look but keeping most of what makes a Jeep a Jeep is a Win Win in my eyes.

    From everything I'm reading on here I'm going to like the newer one. I like the modular paneled too, so I can take the roof off at a camp site or on a trail. I hate we have to wait another year before the truck can be ordered.
