    I’m stationed in Ederle now. The gas rations are up to $1.12 a liter, or about $4.24 a gallon. I’ve had to get the Military Auto Source guys spun up on the Gladiator, because they weren’t tracking at all. I’ll be ordering from them as soon as order banks open for a state side delivery.

    I’m going back to Aviano, the MAS guy I’m ordering through was tracking the JL and is waiting for the order banks to open for the JT. He said he would send me info on the JT when he gets it.

    Would love to know more about the Rear Window ,,, looks like one piece with a cut out for the "slidy bit" ,,, is it one part or more like the Ram's 3 parts ? and does the window open manually (looks like a manual latch inside to me ) or on a switch like the Ram ?

    I’ve been waiting for this now for three + years like all of us and I can’t get out of an obligation at live reveal time!!! Will everything be available again afterwards to watch and “pretend” it is live? Not the way I wanted to begin my purchase

    What color options will be available?

    I'm hoping they bring back "Tank" or at least somewhat of a military color pallet in a dark green and/or tan.

    @JAY just realized that they keep mentioning "on road comfort" in the press releases. Can you ask them what was done to increase on the on road comfort over the JL? Is it just the Ram inspired rear suspension and longer wheel base? or did they make adjustments to the steering system as well? As the Wrangler is notorious for loose steering which would not be ideal for towing.

    I have a question- sorry if it’s been covered, but the fender flares are a lot different then the old JK - is the body-paint-match part metal w/ a skinny rubber black flare? Or is the whole fender a 2-piece plastic deal?

    Since it appears the hard top will have Freedom Panels, it would be nice to know if there is any special provision for storing them other than just tossing them in the bed or back seat area. I'll most likely remove the rear seats anyway as I did in my JKUR. One nice feature about my Scrambler is that the entire top can be placed in the bed. I did so numerous times on long trips from Moab to California's beaches. Thanks!

    WOW! Snarky! Again, I ask why do all the other major mid-size manufacturers - Toyota, Chevy, GMC, Nissan - offer differing cab variations. And now Ford with the 2019 Ranger.

    And in the future leave the snarkiness out - it's not helpful

    They are making their trucks for mass appeal, Jeep is making this as a lifestyle vehicle. Note how in the launch it never mentions home depot, or construction, or any business-type activities. It shows dirt bikes, kayaks, camping etc.

    What you hoping for is what the new Dakota is going to be built for.

    Talked to the Comm director and Chief Engineer, have about 10 mins of audio so it will take some time to get it all transcribed. We'll have it up sometime tonight.

    Keep in mind a lot of the questions did get answered by the press release and specifications sheet.

    (P.S. Don't hold your breath on the questions about future products/features - 2 doors, special editions, etc. They would not comment)

    Yes the truck is a 2020MY. Bad news is we'll have to wait until the 2020 calendar year for the diesel JT - they confirmed this to me.
