That is a Jeep "Easter Egg." Not all Jeeps have them, but Jeep hides little icon's around certain Jeeps.

I though I had found all my Easter Eggs and 3 months later I saw this one! So much fun!

Sure enough, after some digging, it turns out they’re a nod to veteran automotive journalist and longtime Jeep enthusiast, Rick Pewe. Pewe, who has written for magazines like Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off-Road and Jp, frequently heads for the trail with feet shod in a pair of open-toed sandals. Over the years, the enthusiast and expert has consulted with Jeep, providing them with insight and ‘lots of design input’. Including the footwear seems to be a way the brand honored his passion, involvement – and unique choice of fashion when out in off-road filth.

Thanks for chiming in with that. I started second guessing myself after posting, and was about to start digging. :like:

I believe every production JL Wrangler has the flip flops in that same location. At least all the Rubicons. But I’m sure it applies to the other trims as well.

JLU Sport, ours has them as well. One of the first things I noticed, probably a nod to Florida. :)

What? I thought it meant, "In the event of flip-flop weather, crouch upon this spot for the best odds of pulling off wipers for folding down windshield."

Like the opposite of those "No Step" warnings on ailerons.
