We just caught a Jeep Gladiator Rubicon prototype wearing a side graphic similar to the decals worn on the 2017 Freedom Edition JK Wrangler.
The “star” decal is located between the rear fender and the rear door of this 4-door JT Rubicon and while it bears resemblance to the Freedom Edition Wrangler and the Oscar Mike edition on which it was based, we were unable to get a peek inside to see if there were other special bits to suggest we’re looking at a special edition JT.
Another reason this might not be — the Freedom Edition Wrangler was based on the Sport trim and featured a star decal on the hood and rear fender along with an American flag decal on the front fender and cowl. IF this is indeed a JT Freedom Edition, it appears to have combined these graphical elements into one.
It remains to be seen if this is an indication of the first Jeep Gladiator special edition or perhaps just an optional decal to outfit any JT truck. You can check this Jeep Gladiator Rubicon photo gallery inside and tell us what you think.
