I'm getting the black hood cover put on next week. I made them throw it in. It just looks more mean with it on!

Well, while I personally don't like it, it also isn't my money, and I'm not the manufacturer's target audience anyways...while it isn't my taste, I suppose lots of people like it, but I want to see what people do with it. OP, congrats on your purchase, and I hope you enjoy it.

I feel like I'm one of few XJ owners who doesn't completely hate the KL. I actually think they look good from the sides. From the front and rear, they're ugly as all hell, but they're not as bad as people say they are. They're no XJ, that's for sure, but they're not the worst thing I've ever seen (I'm looking at you, Pontiac Aztek).

Seriously? I don't see much of an aesthetic difference between the two, other than some styling cues....

Im gonna have bullets flying my way

But, if I had the money, Id buy the new KL as my daily driver. Then build my XJ. Yes the new Cherokee isn't what us XJ people call a Cherokee, but its still a Jeep (well Fiat with a Jeep badge) but still. Old and new together Id be all for it....

But I don't have the money haha.

Close enough. You should call RRO and drop your KL off at their shop.

Then post pictures when they're done.

Do you feel you need this? (I've never ran into the rear of someone)


You have to be coming up on the car in front if you pretty quick with no brake input. It will beep and flash lights.
