In the tiny print on the box art there will be both hard top and soft top options. Can we get someone working on replacement tires so we can insta-bail on those "BFGeedreih Mvd-Tarroin T/As"? :blink:

Cool..will be nice to see a modern Jeep kit.   The Rubicon 10th Anniversary would be from 2013.     Though I'd rather see a current Grand Cherokee (WK2), like the Trailhawk, Trackhawk, SRT or 75th Anniversary Edition...

I would rather see a current Wrangler over a Grand Cherokee since the Wrangler has plenty more options for customization and trim levels that could be replicated.

The Grand Cherokee has 9 different trim levels and loads of aftermarket customization going on... I own one, so that would be my preference....but the Wrangler will be nice to have.

I will admit that it would be nice to someday have the current GC in kit form.

According to the Meng site, this kit will have a working suspension unlike their previous two kits.

I'm very interested to see what subjects they continue to come up with, since they are doing kits so far that no one else has done (yes there were snap Hummer kits, but no full-detail). So far, they've done one from Ford, one from GM, and now one from FCA. Wonder which manufacturer will be next?

I like what Meng has been doing.. a current Ram, Silverado, Sierra or F150 would be nice to see also...

I hope they made a manual trans model, though regardless it will at least have the better looking interior compared to what the JK started with in 2007!

I'd rather have an XJ Cherokee, but considering we have had 5 between my Dad , Kid Sister, and Myself, I am biased.

It's too bad Tamiya didn't release one alongside their Grand Cherokee and Wrangler kits!

YES!!!!!, I have no problem shelling out $70 on this one, interesting it appears to be a U.S. spec. Model. Not the Chinese version which has different front fenders and front bumper. 10th anniversary Rubicon makes it a 2013, but it hasn't changed much since then and is very similar to the 2017.

While we have thousands of Jeep owners around where I live, the only "off roading" they do is when they pull into their driveway.

Those are the best, the ones that blindside you on a idle Tuesday...

Unlike the BMW from Platz....

Similarly to the Platz M6 taking a long time coming out after being announced, the unicorn I've had on preorder with HLJ for 3 1/2 years now is the Ebbro 1968 Lotus 49B..don't know if it's a licensing issue w/ Lotus (they have released other Lotus F1 kits in the interim) or the tobacco livery or what...supposedly, coming next month, but previous release date announcements have come and gone, so I'm not holding my breath.

Wish I could get excited about this kit but I can't. Call me a purist, but the Jeeps have become too much a luxury SUV and have strayed way far from their roots. I understand some of the changes were necessitated by government standards and trying to appeal to more buyers, but I lost interest in Jeeps when they started hanging all the plastic add on stuff on them.

I am really hoping someone would take a page from the Moebius folks and develop a series of models like the Ford F series trucks they are doing for Dodge and GM trucks from 67- 80.

I have a couple sets of nippers( spure cutters) on back order, that have been on B/O for since 2015, one of them is no longer in the catalog for Mr Hobby :lol:
