    LOL on the mirrors!! If you look at some of the shots from the back 3/4s, they actually look like what the JK's have now. I think the covers just make them look crazy big from the front

    Edit - are the control arms tubular now? I tried enlarging the photo but it loses too much detail & I can't see for sure.
    Hard to say for sure on the arms but I think they are still the same or similar to what come on the JK now.

    I'd be hard pressed to think that the 2-door would ever go away but I know it's becoming a lot harder for FCA to justify being that it has such a massive carbon footprint. If I recall, it's carbon footprint is bigger than a Hellcat Challenger.

    That's what I'm thinking too and it would make the most sense. I just couldn't tell for sure.

    If they are 285/70/17 they would be 32.7x11.2. A little larger than the current rubicon

    I think the finish is a bit wrinkly for me, but I really can't tell much. Looks like a Jeep!

    Never see the front wheel and the rocks with those mirrors, poor idea.

    If they would find a way to shorten up the 4 door by about 8-10 inches, maybe there wouldn't be too many complaints about doing away with the 2 door.

    what does everyone make of the different tires?

    At first I thought maybe one model was a Rubi and one was a standard JKU, hence the different tires. We know that current Rubi's have the BFG M/T while the JKU Sport has the Goodyear SRA tire as OEM. Is Jeep switching to the BFG KO2 and Duratrac now?

    Also, it appears that both models had differing tires but both had the red "Rubicon" shocks.

    I zoomed in on the license plate and i'm pretty sure it said Michigan. Lol. Just messin. Threads like this gets me excited for the forward progress of the Jeep. Makes me wonder about the 2 door tho. I guess time will tell.

    I wonder where they took these photos at? It looks like the desert somewhere. Maybe Death Valley. I've seen other manufacturers test new vehicles in DV.
