So I thought I should start a thread here for my 2020 Gladiator Build we are calling the Neon Gladiator @NeonGladiatorJT on IG. My wife and I picked up our first Jeep last July, aka the MojitoJeep which is a 2018 JLUR. We have had so much fun building it, working on it, going on amazing adventures with it, and meeting so many great Jeepers. This all convinced us it was time to sell our first born child.... the 2016 Porsche Cayman. In June, we placed an order for a 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. We had been wanting to wait for Punk'n, but we decided to order a black one with the intention of wrapping it. So far we have begun by adding some of the basics, Proclip Usa Phone Mount, Weathertech floormats, shorty antenna, window tints. We have pulled the factory wheels and tires off the Gladiator and sold the tires, and I am selling off the wheels individually because I had a couple of guys wanting just one of them to have a matching spare. Right now, it is currently sitting on the JLUR Factory wheels and tires while we are wrapping the vehicle ourselves with the help of @LoveSpank, @c5z06speedjon, and @Mook. The Gladiator has been completely stripped to make the wrap job easier, since we are not professionals and we have never done a complete wrap before!

The night we traded it in:

9/9/19 Update:
We officially unveiled the Satin Neon Yellow Vinyl Wrap that we completed over the past few weeks. Thanks to help from some awesome friends helping us wrap and put the Gladiator back together everything went smoothly, it was just time consuming. It's crazy how different this color looks in all the different lighting, and it never looks as good as it does in person! You can check out our wrap reveal video, and I will include a handful of photos below:









Wheels and tires will be here today, and unfortunately my lift kit is on back order until next week. I have a photoshoot scheduled this weekend with Jonathan Salmi and one of my top ShockerRacing girls Sarak aka Sen.cityy!

I was very skeptical when I first showed up but I think it turned out great.
I agree, I wasn't really liking the tailgate when that was all that was completed. But with it all done, I am very happy with it.

I like that you left some black for accent. Helps break up the brightness and really makes it pop. I dig it!

Agreed, Im not usually a fan of super bright colors, but it looks good like this...

Congrats on the new ride as well.

Love these trucks and it looked tough in black! Not really digging the new color. Maybe a lift and some new wheels will make it look better.
Yeah, the bright yellow isn't for everyone but I wanted something that was going to grab attention for our YouTube Channel. The black wheels and lift kit will definitely help, but its still gonna be bright as hell!

It's Yellow! Thanks guys, going flat or satin black would probably look cool as well but we just left the gloss black showing through. It would be a bunch more work to add the vinyl.

Out-Fucking-standing... Reminds me of that alternate color for firetrucks (High-vis Yellow)

Love the JLURs, and love the JTRs now too
