It's hard to say, and I would be asking the dealer.

Things to look for on the Recon:
-Red seat belts
-Leather covered dash/red stitching
-Steel bumpers
-Step sliders
-2.0L e-Torque engine
-Mopar Performance HD tire carrier
-Specific wheels

I don't have my build sheet in front of me, maybe others can help with additional specific Recon build packages.

The window sticker is on the Dealers' site. It tells all.

This was a diesel with plastic bumpers and no steps. Just tossing it out there. I'm as perplexed as the rest of ya'll

Based on the link you sent yes. There is not a single Recon option on that. That is a rubicon (non-recon) that someone stuck a recon badge on one side only. See above all the standard options as part of recon.

This dealer has pulled MANY fast ones.
If that works I’m going to slap a couple recon badges on mine (Sport S) and leave the Rubicon stickers on my takeoff hood then add $10K to a sale price and throw a for sale sign on it :LOL:

In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, if that would be referred to as "Theft by Deception."

And, yes. It is Criminal.

I know you are kidding. But just so everyone knows: when you go to trade in your vehicle, dealers enter the VIN into the system: it tells them what trim level it is, what options it came with, and even when it was first registered. Then they manually enter any other major upgrade, like if it got leather seats, a lift, etc.

To be totally honest, Your Jeep has me reconsidering the "I MUST have a 2 door no matter what" stance. I always thought the 2 door looked much better... until now. A 4 door would be MUCH easier to live with daily..... WELL DONE!!
