    I actually saw them on Instagram. Looks like a few employees that are part of the JT project we’re allowed to post them up the day of the launch. I was just looking at pics of the launch and I happened to see these as well. Figured you guys would like it.

    Actually just saw another one of a red one. On someone’s driveway, I’ll see if I can get that one too to post.

    Just noticed that the wheels from the black one are missing the machined highlights. Possible "back out" package like whats available on the ram big horn?

    Generally, we have seen black wheels on Jeep's test vehicles and the Gladiator that is wearing those wheels on the left is likely a pre-production model. These wheels often make their way into a production environment like the JLU Moab being equipped with gloss black versions of the machined Rubicon wheels as standard.

    I’ve seen these wheels on pre production for other platforms outside JT. Your right but they also can become a standard or option.

    I’m not sure what the details on this Jeep Gladiator is, but it was spotted in Novi, Michigan and looks like it could be riding on 2" Mopar lift kit, deadlock wheels and 37" tires.

    The Moab diner has some fantastic food and being there in a JT would make it all that much better. Especially a dirty one.

    Another view of the Toledo plant Gladiator posted by the Toledo Blade. Article can be found here with a great video of plant workers describing the Gladiator and many have worked for Jeep for decades. Very cool!

    Found a lot more spotted pictures. Seems like black ones are the ones out testing the most.

    Enjoy :)
