Did the Jeep designers achieve sobriety, and the JT is now dead?

... whatever it is they have up their sleeves, this just heightened the suspense factor a few notches on the Likert-o-scale...

Purely speculation here, but I have seen the comments (rumors?) that the new transmission is too long to fit in the 2 door. Maybe the 2 door will live on in a "classic" form?

Well the new 2018 JL will be running down the Toledo north assembly plant which leaves the JK to continue to run down Toledo south as a 2018 in a limited form until they retool for the pickup. There has been articles regarding both generations running in parallel.

But will it have a leather wrapped center console lid and armrests?

Not to start rumors, but if that's the case, perhaps this will become the new model designations... since they may not share the same transmissions.

JL = long wheelbase
JS = short wheelbase
