4-door for certain, have not seen anything yet about a 2-door version.

OK, so that's the Recon interior, what lettering is on the hood? Rubicon?

Black decal on center of hood; black decal on side of hood, runs to cowl, with "Rubicon" lettering over the black textured background (3 colors).

Milous, you're awesome. I'm really diggin' these details.

Will those new bling-tactic wheels be wrapped in BFG KMs or perhaps KM2s?

Possibly 35's factory? Why would they do this to run the current 32's?

Did you get this installed as an option at the dealer or via an independent installer? If via dealer, they're now installing the Teraflex carrier and relocating brake light? Stock tire BFG KM or KO2? Looks great, safe driving, congrats!

Okay, I can't help myself, as long as Milous has info to share, I'm going to keep asking. So the interior has red accents; does the red carry over to the exterior any way? Perhaps red tow hooks and trail rated badge, like the HR?

Swing gate reinforcement and oversized spare tire carrier is a new option for 2017 and is factory installed.

Milous,
Why don't you hint to the team for them to maybe put the upgraded pentastar V6 engine that is planned for the JL into the recon... 300hp boosted from 285hp.
