This years auto shows

Has anyone attended any of this years auto shows to see what new jeeps are being developed. TJ.s will not be around forever and I was just wondering what's coming down the pike. Wish I had the money to attend the show in NYC but being unemployed for the last year beer was more important.

I just went to the Vancouver, B.C., Canada International Auto Show last week. The Jeep exhibit wasn't very impressive. I think they had one JK two door, two JK four doors (one of which was the Moab edition), two Grand Cherokees, and a Compass.

Yesterday, one of my friends dropped by my house and showed me his new JK four door Moab. It's kinda cool. It has all leather seating, heated front seats, front and rear Dana 44 axles but only the rear has the selectable locker from the Rubicon, black texture coated rocker rails, and nice steel bumpers. The front bumper even has provisions to mount a winch inside of it.

You may be correct but I feel everybody here looks at our vehicles with mods in mind and not just new and pretty.

The thing is, this has nothing to do with TJs and this is a subforum specifically about TJs.

I was at the Salt Lake International Auto Expo, but I never made it to the Jeeps as I was working our race exhibit the entire time I was there.

Just a correction. I found out from my friend that his Moab actually has a Dana 30 front end.
