Some good elements here, others aren't for me.

I've heard Jeep and FCA are pushing for sales out in UAE/Dubai- this and the Mojave sure seem like they would be in the right direction.
Makes sense... It does look like something a Persian would drive...Maybe add gold accents everywhere. :CWL:

20"+ RIMs do not belong on a JL/JT. Might as well put some hydraulics on it too! The Cheech and Chong, I forgot my Bong Edition.

Unless you have comparable mud tires of 37” or larger... But anything larger than a 20... Yeah that’s a big negative...

Guess I'm the minority, I kinda like it.

20s are a no go for me, I'd swap them for 18s and larger tires, but the other pieces I think look good and I like the interior.

Don't care for it myself, but doesn't bother me at all if others like it. Also, FCA doesn't just randomly try stuff, if they're making this then they have good reason to and it'll probably sell well. Some people on this forum probably aren't the marketing geniuses they imagine they are.

People need to chill out and stop thinking they need to completely destroy anything they don't personally prefer. This and FCA's other more "normal" vehicles all help fund the stuff I want to buy, so why hate on it?

And who the hell are we to say what is a "real Jeep" and what isn't? I had a Cherokee Trailhawk before my Gladiator Rubicon, and a 2007 2 door JK Wrangler before that...both of those vehicles were badass and I remember when I got my 2007 JK, it was "cool" to say that the JKs weren't real Jeeps, which was of course rediculous.

People need to chill out a little sometimes.

I want that color though!!! You'd have to wrap the whole thing in Protective Film to keep it nice on the trail but I'd take my Rubi in that color!

I was going to crack a similar joke earlier, but figured since majority of this forum seems to have a broken funnybone I decided against it. Glad someone else has the same sense of humor as I do. :like:

Well the color matched bumper is fine.. Everything else is no good in my opinion. But if it boosts sales then it'll boost aftermarket so I am all for it.

And that fancy wine red color isnt even available. The White with the color matched bumper looks pretty good though.

I wonder if Jeep puts some protective film on the Front painted bumper like the front side of the rear painted flares. Otherwise I think that's 100% a must before leaving the dealership. When I was looking at RAMs with the sport package a big complaint was rock chips on the front painted bumpers.
