    Either a Stormtrooper Edition Jeep Wrangler JL is coming, or there are some big Star Wars fans among FCA's engineers. Could Jeep be preparing a reveal in time for the release of Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker on December 20?

    This prototype JL Unlimited with manufacturers plates wears a Stormtrooper decal on the front quarter panel, stars wars themed decals on the side and a Darth Vader stick in the rear. The contrasting white and black body parts caps off the Stormtrooper look. It's also riding on the Mopar lift kit.

    What's peculiar is that this vehicle doesn't appear to have an exhaust. And although there is a PHEV (hybrid) Wrangler on the way (see last sighted prototype), even PHEVs have exhausts.

    PHEV's still have exhausts though.

    It almost seems like they are just trying to sell more black jeeps, maybe a lower take than expected? Personally it would look much better with an inverted color scheme.

    We don’t see the other side but it has at least 3 different wheels on the rig. I agree with Alex colors would need to be inverted.

    A true stormtrooper edition would be all white with black accents. I am a huge Star Wars fan but I wouldn't drive that

    I think someone just got bored and decided to have a little fun. Or they’re coming out with the schitzo edition.

    I don’t think ever the most diehard SW fan would drive that thing. It’s hideous. The black Jeep should be a Darth Vadar version anyway.

    Could it have been a "buy back" Jeep that someone with questionable taste had done, then Jeep put it into their test fleet.

    I have seen plenty of Jeeps done up by folks with questionable taste.

    Good point. I bet it was someone from this forum. Or someone from Florida - they like to do this to Jeeps. Time to confess.
