Here's hoping the diesel isn't a $4,000+ option.

That 8.4 Uconnect is fantastic. Have it in my Cherokee Trailhawk. It's a bit slow, but better than JK systems.

Don't know how much more interesting it can get, likely to be little to no changes from what we're already used to...

Just read about how the traditional soft top will be replaced, which makes sense when you factor in the glass roof. Glass in a soft top... can't recall when last I seen that combination. 3-piece hard top roof is what I read and it can come off in sections, so you can still have an open roof.

RIP soft top.

I remember the Mitsubishi Eclipse had a rear window made out of glass and it was soft top. But with the much bigger sizing of this glass, I agree, hard top would be the best route to go with.

I'm expecting to see LED headlights as an option, something the Wrangler JK is rumored to get. Maybe the JL will get it too.

Yea it'll be an option now I believe. Don't think they're coming standard which I personally think is stupid.
