I have been waiting for Earl since the Gladiator Far Out concept. Toss in a better diesel fuel pump (fingers crossed) and I’ll get my Earl JTRD with Saddle Interior. I have waited years. Lucky my Tundra crew keeps on ticking payment free.

I’ve been waiting too. Saw this concept in that exact spot at Easter Jeep Safari in 2021. Pictures don’t do the color full justice. it’s does have bluish/green undertone.

High velocity in person at the dealer yesterday. Trust me, it's even more awful in person. Not a fan...

I can see it popular in the beach states like Cali & Florida.... I've seen one driving down the road and they are very bright. Not a fan either.

Would be way better with a Black top. Not sure if all that yellow will look good on a JT.

I agree. JT is obviously bigger therefore more of that color ...lol

Almost like this color:
But I have to admit, I am more of a fan of the green than I would be of the yellow.

My snazberry has color match fenders. It is what it is. Its just too much color for my taste. The black top and fenders break it up a little better.

Make an Xtreme Recon package available the same time as Punkin and I'm in....
Yeah the XR package and 4.88s would be nice; and its stuff they already have.

I saw the yellow in a wrangler Rubicon with a black too. I’m not a yellow fan but it looked ok. Reminds me of one the old FJ40 yellows.

The shade on the grey offerings is quite played out. Waaa waaa waaa.

Last I checked Jeep has a very light silver, a very dark metallic grey, and a medium primer-coatish grey. All three very different shades, and they have anywhere from 5 to 7 other offerings as a time. And now, god forbid, they add Earl, which is also completely different than the other three and almost a blue/green as opposed to a true grey shade.

Jeep offers plenty of color variation, and while I personally do not like to stand out and draw attention to myself with a loud colored car, to each their own. To me, more muted, natural tones better matches the type of vehicle that is the gladiator. For instance, I think they offer the wrong shade of blue - drop Hydro and roll out the k-9 blue from the Top Dog concept.
