There is a "Recon" badge but we demand an "Xtreme Recon" badge because we like to look down on everyone else and show them we are better!......... sarsastic, but you get the point

I'm not a big fan of manufacturer decals all over a vehicle. That being said, I like the rubicon decal. They could have replaced it with Xtreme Recon or Rubicon XR instead. Another option is a badge or logo like the Sport has on the side panel.

I'm the opposite, I'm debadging, losing the rubi sticker and everything. I'm sure the 37's will give it away anyway, but what's the worst that could happen? Someone might think I'm doing really well off road without lockers?

still up for that group buy of decals that says " Nice Rubicon, peasant"
I may do the same esp with my tan leather seats i think all black and tan without red decals/badges would look really good

"We don't need no stinking badges"

It would be cool to have a bespoke tailgate tag though. I saw that they just list both the rubi and the XR on the same tag now. I'm assuming the regular rubi gets the same tag with both on there.

If my wife’s XR gets a badge I’m making an Even Xtremer Recon badge for my 18 Rubicon…

Seriously though, I think the XR unique Wheels and 35s are essentially the badge…

Hmmm... I don’t know.

I’d say half of all Wranglers have custom wheels, and one-quarter have 35s.

I realize that. My Rubicon has Custom Wheels, but it doesn’t have the Wheels that come in the XR Package…
Only the 1% on here know that, though.

Perhaps Stellantis is trying to balance elevating the Rubicon “sub-brand,” without placing too much attention on the Xtreme Recon name.

From a business standpoint, Stellantis gets a greater return from selling a more expensive “Rubicon,” than from selling an “XR.”
