Exactly! It's cool as hell, but I like the Hard a Rock price point, not the Red Rock ish price point.

Because if I'm spending that much money on a vehicle, it's going to be A LOT faster!

Well the Hemi won't be there for sure. Maybe the hood, bumpers (front and rear) tires downsized to 35. I also doubt they would put BF Krawler on it , they will probably go with the KM2.

Yeah kind of what I am thinking/hoping some of the cues and downsized into something they can sell. I wonder if the flat fenders make it. The gray bumpers and rails are interesting too.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Wow nice job to those who made the connection.

Like many others have already said...now let's see what carries over, and hopefully it stays at the HR price point. What makes the HR so appealing, at least for me, is that it's not much more than a loaded Rubi—I'd imagine that's what makes it so popular of choice for many people. Why would they replace such a popular selling option with one that would likely limit sales? It seems like they went so over the top with the Red Rock because it was so limited. But the Recon concept does have some crazy stuff going on. Was the 10A based on a concept?

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Will the Trailcat ever happen? I heard that the GC version may (707 hp) but what about a wrangler with over 350 hp?
