It may be more aerodynamically backwards.

Why do they even bother making a mule? Ok guys, the new model is going to look like the 1940 model. Bet you didn't see that coming.

In all fairness they would be stupid to change much, the resale on these things is ridiculous. I swear I can buy a brand new one for less then a 3 year old one. You can hardly find even a 20 year old one for 1/2 what it was new.

A good friend bought the new JK at introduction in 2007. Four door, man trans and low options. Over 20-mpg in all situations except running down Padre Island fifty miles or more.

At 180k miles it has been almost trouble free past a couple of early warranty claims.

A highly competent vehicle given its shape and weight.

2004.0 DODGE Ram QC/LB 2500 2WD/NV-5600 305/555 ISB. 7,940-lb. Stock. 200,000 miles/5000-hrs @ 40-mph average.
1990 35' Silver Streak TT 7,900-lb.
11-cpm solo & 19-cpm towing; 21-mpg average past 54k-miles
Sold: 1983 Silver Streak 3411
