I sure hope that those things on the fenders are driving lights or DRL's. I certainly would not to see the fender mounted directionals ever come back again, like they were on the TJ.

The directionals are suppose to be round, and located on the grill just below the headlights. No exceptions permitted.

I personally loved the TJ, it's what made me want a Wrangler as a kid; however I prefer the directionals on the grille as well.

Hmm, so now if I overestimate my clearance while offroading I not only crunch a fender, but destroy a running light and possibly short out my electical system.

Exactly what I thought when I first saw that photo. Not to mention it looks to be a pricey LED setup.... ouch.

Not a big fan of those directionals hanging out at the tip of the fenders. They belong on the grill out of harms way.

That hood is perfectly smooth - no bumpers or tie downs for a folding windshield. I guess that confirms that part isn't happening...

Also the bumper looks strangely taller in the middle.

Milous,

It's been months since you made this statement. Any update on the MY for a diesel for US market?

I heard a rumor that since the top is going to be more of a fixed top than true convertible, to meet roll over and side impact standards, 1/2 doors will no longer be an option.
