What clues?

Little of this will be in a JL. The grill, and likely the steering wheel are the few things it will share, as they've already been seen in the wild.

Even the Getrag manual transmission there is unlikely to find a place in the new Wrangler.

Grill, and the angle of the glass - not chopped height. The front edge of the hood, the lack of hinges on the front glass. Not likely we get that flat bottom steering wheel in the JKU.

Like I wrote earlier, only the grill is on the test mules. The windshield, along with the roof and support structures is a chopped stock JK (see the behind the scenes video of the build), not a JL. The JL mule and renders all show window hinges further out on the outside edge, and that might dissapear, but I wouldn't base it on this custom build where the entire upper structure was changed so dramatically by hand.

Speaking of hinges even the door hinges (no handles )are the old type, not the newer ones they are covering on the mules and look lower profile on the render.

The hood front edge doesn't reveal much especially since it was also a separate part, other than how it mates with a JL style hood, but.... even there they aren't using the same sttachment setup as the JL mules and the leaked renders, and it is shorter than the JL mating to a JK bay. Also the lack of side hood attachments in this , but there is no indication that will be on the JL fortunatley/unfortunately depending on your view of their aesthetic vs utility.
Although the test mule and render do appear to have a more solid and smaller profile like Rampage or Drake hood latches, hopefully they are locking like on the Rampage (they require a locking hood for the EU market).

It's a super sweet concept vehicle, but very few JL clues really.
