I like that they've got a steel bumper package for the Sport S trim but I'm not sure I'd want the rest at that price. Seems like it still comes with the plastic rear bumper?

LEDs, leather, rock slides, steel bumper. I think the hard top is included. I believe the 21 also had the Rubicon rear bumper guards.
It was definitely the best deal in '21 and looks like that may also be the case here.

Hard top would make more sense at that price to me. I ended up with the "Popular equipment" package in 2020 IIRC - hard top, tow upgrade (not max tow), and 7" display but it was a lot cheaper option.

It didn't come with nearly as much, but that is a double edge sword if you don't want everything. I like packaged options but you're at the mercy of what's included (or excluded).

As far as the best deal they haven't even started making 2023s yet! That being said, if there is a mid year price increase the first ones will be the cheapest :)

Flag positioning on passenger side are wrong.
Yup, first thing I noticed. Pretty amateur hour thing to miss for your patriotic special edition.

The average person doesn't know. The average service member should. So the question is who the target market is. They've probably done market research that shows most people go "why is that flag backwards?"

Should they fix it? Yeah. But I doubt it is an oversight. Probably intentional.

I absolutely love my Freedom 21 with max tow. Best combo imo if you weren’t going with the rubicon or mojave. Can’t recall if hard top is standard but mine came with one.

The rear bumper is also steel.

I thought I read somewhere a while back that the freedom trim got cut. I guess just for the 22’?

If you get the steel bumper group, rear will be too

Interesting comments about the flag. Following U.S. Code, the union is displayed in the flag's own upper right... or observers upper left.

This annoys me, Jeep "donates" through your money paid for the option?
WTF?!?!
