This pretty much shows the design of the removable panels and there's the hood scoop (??) At first I thought this was like Jeep's trail rail management system but this seems to mount along the top cage.

Isn't that the 04 concept just with removable panels?

More evidence for my theory!!!!
I believe the rear body is a tubular frame.

with removable FRAMELESS doors.
Allowing the roof to to be removed in 3 separate FLAT pieces (like a T top style)
then the rear glass between the C/D (or B/C) pillars will be another set of panels. And the rear glass retracts into the door.

picture it like a T top style for the roof over the doors

then the rear roof slides out the back as does the side rear glass.

making removal of all the pieces light and small enough to easily be removed by one person and stored easily

(a very common complaint of the Wrangler people about the hard top is it’s very hard to do with 1/2 people and large space needed to store)

The main body is definitely the 04 concept and we have seen before Ford using placeholders in their patents so I'd take the vehicle itself with a grain of salt.
