Jeep Wrangler Unlimited "Half-Door" Unofficial Reveal Spy Photos
Jeep has been teasing the Wrangler (JL) half-door solution since the model launched back in November 2017 at the LA Auto Show. The first time we saw it, Jeep showed off a pair of "conceptual" half-doors with a plexiglass window in them and promised the public they would be available in the 2019 model year.
However, a few months later, Jeep introduced the Jeep Jeepster Concept showing a pair of half-doors like the ones shown in our previous spy photos. Back then, Jeep said that the plexiglass windows would not be available for sale, and, the ones found on the Jeepster Concept were another "conceptual" item.
Fast forward to this year, the Jeep unveiled the 6.4L HEMI V8 powered Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept. It featured another set of "conceptual" half-doors, but this time, they were showcased on a four-door model, and today we have caught our first look at a production four-door Jeep in Rubicon trim.
With the resounding public appeal of the upcoming Ford Bronco, it appears that Jeep is looking at actually bringing a half-door option to the market. Unlike the half-door design in the past generation (Wrangler JK), they have doors that feature fabric windows with a large opening in the middle and front quarter windows.
These appear to be the same design showcased on the Rubicon 392 Concept and is the first time we have seen half-doors on a Wrangler (JL) other than the unveiling and the concept vehicles.
