The two door variant of the upcoming Wrangler Jl was spotted by the FoxNews test car hunter. It may be getting ferried away on a truck after a mechanical failure, but at least we get some nice shots of it as a result.

This is such a teaser of the roof since we can see its vertical lines printed showing through the camo but not the cuts that would help us in suggesting how big the panels would be. Closest indication of that is the JT. Panels on these 2 should be similar.

Anything else you guys can spot??

Well, they mentioned a set of Rubicon-style wheels. What I'm excited about are the possible rests for a fold-down windscreen sticking through the wrap covering the hood . Not sure how close the photographer go to the Wrangler to be able to see that and I'm hoping they're right. Jeep is sticking to what we're used to seeing on a Wrangler with the JL and it'l go a long way with loyal buyers.

Last i heard they wanted to get rid of the fold down windshield, so you can throw that idea out the window till we have real confirmation (Dec 2017).

Now, this being a test mule Jeep knows the public will see, odds are they've done certain things to throw us a curve ball.

Unless due to how the air system is configured in the JL that vent means something and isn't meant to throw us off as far as test mules go.
With that being said it will help that we look into the actual functional aspect of it.

You can see that raised rectangle on the hood in the picture below, but those vents are usually more for race cars aren't they?



Of course it looks like the removable roof panels are there too.

Under regular driving conditions its not a problem but if you go off road then it might start to happen. A look at what some owners are experience is a good indication of whats going on here. Its not an issue but just a result of pushing the wrangler to extremes

So far, we've been seeing a lot of four door Wrangler mule pictures instead of the two door. Maybe the Ultimate will come out first since it's being tested so much?
Unlike makers of certain cars/trucks/suv's, the Wrangler is a special product that doesn't require too much going back to the drawing board, so from trim to trim its a very streamlined process. Because of that we should see both the Unlimited and regular come out at launch.
