I stalked this guy a little bit, looks like he's a car salesman from his Tweets.
WHAT THE!????!!!! Is that another one parked next to it?
This is some type of optical illusion.......................
This guy is full of the poo. These are manufacturer test mules. The reps often drive them around to dealerships to hype, but these are in no way for sale. Is the dealership in Michigan? Wrong wheels, no badging, manu plates: no dice.

I'm just kinda surprised that 2 michigan gladiators show up at a california dealership, unless they're making the rounds to get sales guys excited?

Anybody call the dealership yet? Maybe we should blow up their phones and keep them all busy wasting time telling us "we are sorry but those are not for sale". Call it punishment for misleading the internet.

Likely response upon inquiry:
"Those two black Gladiators? Oh, I'm sorry sir. We sold those just prior to your arrival (after driving two hours to the dealership). can I interest you in a new JL?"

I already did the "chat with us" was told somebody would reach out to me. Think their "chat with us" isn't a real person.

Can't speak to truth, just reporting, but...

Apparently he goes by Ed. Got his direct cell number.

He said the two there are "reserved for our General Managers" and that they're the 2nd biggest dealer in California so they get perks. He said they have more coming the first week of February.

I didn't go much deeper as I didn't want to give away I was calling from PA or the jig would have been up.

He was polite and friendly though. He offered to have me to the dealership to look at them. If you're local give him a call and go see them!

Ask for Mr. Qubicon. The dealership knows who that is.

They were nice enough after I explained I thought Mr. Qubicon was misleading in his social media posts. The sales manager told me April.

Yeah, reserved for your Kalifornia GMs, with Michigan plates... :facepalm:

They are no doubt from a local tech/development center, and the area FCA rep proctored a surprise demo ride for the GMs. Nothing more.

I chatted with him on instagram, he said these are test units for them to try out but they get to keep them. They are letting them go in February and will have pricing on them in a week or so.
