    To kick things off, here are a few things that I noticed:

    1. The doors can still be removed!
    2. The transfer case is still manually operated as opposed to being push button e-operated like what the Cherokee and Renegade have.
    3. There is specific mention of a 4-speed transfer case and a 5-speed. This is something we have been hearing about in regards to full time 4WD being an option on Sahara models.
    4. The soft top is zipperless
    5. The hard top has removable side panels that operate much like the freedom top panels.
    6. There still is a roll cage

    So, let's hear what you're seeing

    Okay, something else I just saw. First, it's nice that the JL will be coming with an optional keyless push button start. Our Renegade came with it and it was nice to have. That being said, I see that it also has some kind of new optional "STOP/START System" feature which apparently turns off your engine automatically at stops. Apparently, this feature is designed to reduce fuel consumption.

    And oh, I see that the JL will now have Electro Hydraulic Steering. This is something that is available on all the newer Jeep models but I'm not 100% sure how this will work out on the trail. According to the manual, it still has a mechanical function and one that will kick in under extreme steering conditions to save the electric part.

    I’m not sure I’d like that, on a Jeep.

    Maybe if you can disable it, or if it is automatically disabled in 4 lo.
