    The front end looks a bit unfinished. It would have been nice if they could have recessed the headlights so it doesn’t look so bug-eyed. But headlights are often a bugaboo for lego cars, especially smaller ones.

    Oof….. it looks…. really, really bad. Seriously does not look like a Jeep. I’m normally a fan of the Technic line, even though it’s way too expensive for me and I never buy them, but this just looks bad. Also the fact that they’re trying to brag about the IRL Jeep’s puny V6 and measly 270hp is hilarious ????????????

    @winstonheard I agree, but damn these are plain round headlights they should be able to get those right! Same goes for the relatively square and slab-surfaced Jeep body.

    I’m just excited to see another way to get those sweet chevron tread tractor tires, the other being the upcoming City Tractor 60287.

    Will this $50 scale Jeep fit on the 42098 Car Transporter trailer like the $50 scale ZR1 does? My guess is no but we’ll see.
