    JL Wrangler. Two different sets of tail lights?????

    Autoblog just posted a new short article regarding the new JL Wrangler and the main photo caught my eye. The two Jeeps here in the foreground have different style tail lights. Looking at the body lines under the windows and the similar rear bumpers, it looks like they both are indeed JLs. And the white one clearly has a JL soft top. Take a look. I'm curious as to what the difference would be.

    The different license plate locations catch my eye. I️ prefer it to be centered but you lose the ground clearance. I️ would like to see a factory tire mounted license plate.

    Interesting. I didn't catch that. Almost looks like 2 different bumpers. The red one seems to have a designated plate mount area.

    The JL Sport and Sahara will have the red tail lights. If I remember correctly they are halogens. The Rubicon will have the clear full LED tail lights

    I was just about to say they both look like export versions based off of license plat locations. Some of the other versions I thought I saw the plate in the same spot as the jk
