In the last picture, you can see the outline of the bumper lines, which are identical to the non-camo Jeep behind it. I'll have to agree with Scott that the bra is hiding something other than body changes.

Bumper lines are different. Fog lamp openings are bigger and the lines for the lower bumper are different too. You can also see that the halogen lights have the same plastic insert that the HID ones for the headlight washers.

The question now is if the updates are for the 16s or for the 17s.

It's the dirt. That's new and included as part of the Trail Rated package.

Re: 2017 Spy Shots???

Tho bra is unlikely to be hiding anything turbo-related. The intercooler would not be placed so low on an off-road car to expose it to damage during a trail run. Front Mounted Intercoolers might look mighty on a Subaru, but every sidewalk and every road debris is an insult to its integrity. Audi and BMW have them recessed to the side, forward of the wheel, into the fender. Morrover, part of the bra also covers part of the upper vents. With such limited cooling, that one is not likely to be a turbo car. And the exhaust is a single pipe single muffler.

Anyone who ever drove a turbo car with an air to air intercooler, would know how badly affected by heat sch engines can be. The intercooler becomes a heat sink. They would not want to cover it with any mesh, and mounting it that low is also ill advised.

Re: 2017 Spy Shots???

Hmmm. The slotted grill looks a tad different. Also, HID lights.

Grill openings look larger. Perhaps one could speculate that they're going to change the grill similar to what is available on the current Cherokee - where each grill opening is it's own separate piece.

I bet money that the fog lights will be LEDs as well.

Seems bogus to me. Not enough change for me to care.

Look harder, it's an export model.

And as I said in the other thread, these aren't '17s.
