Or that longer hood that popped up.

I agree, and I don't believe that will ever happen again (there were some 2WD Wranglers in some markets not all that long ago if I recall).

You can. There's just nothing to view.

Re: 2018 Wrangler XX Information Thread

I suspect the 2018 XX is really a 2018 JK.

That's what most people are thinking especially since it's already been stated that the JK will be produced concurrently with the JL for a few months as 2018's.

Re: 2018 Wrangler XX Information Thread

I believe it. Seems weird though to create a new designation for an extended run of the out-going platform. I wonder if it will end up some kind of bastard with perhaps some elements of the new platform. Maybe JL electronics in the JK body. Maybe even drivetrain. They made it work in the test mules. Maybe that longer hood will be used.

Perhaps they are expecting some backlash and are looking to soften the transition? I can see how a significant change in, say, how the removeable top is implemented could upset long time Jeep enthusiasts.

While anything is 'possible', I really don't think that will be the case as it's just too costly and complicated from a production/manufacturing standpoint.
My guess is that the 2018 XX/JK will be identical to the 2017 other than a few colors and perhaps the elimination of some packages/models.

So are we talking another year of the full line up or limited offerings?

So, Jeep is dropping the Rubicon 10A continuation model (ie, the Hard Rock), so they can re-introduce it again in 2018 but now as the 15A.
