    The main reason I've never purchased a Jeep. I know for a fact I'd build it up to Land Cruiser / Rover cost in no time.

    My 2008 Rubicon is on 37s, etc......and it was not good enough for me.....I had to get a serious rock crawler. Some sports are not cheap, but are a hell of a lot of fun; plus I am lucky, my wife really enjoys our off road runs, but has no interest in riding on the back of the bikes.

    ^^^ Spectacular photo. Well worth posting. The diagram on the inside of the fuel filler door really speaks to me. I had no use for a Jeep Gladiator but now I'm headed to the local Jeep dealership to see if there are any left at any price.

    20190616_115454.jpg 20170201_111804.jpg Was at our local Jeep dealer today and no Gladiators to look at. All Sold. Salesman said they can't keep them on the lot. Have no idea if selling at invoice or something else.

    I was kinda considering buying one. I have a 2008 JK Rubicon that we have towed all across the country and up into Alaska, in addition to doing lots of the tough Jeep trails (running 35s and 1 3/4 lift). I also have a 2012 F150 that I love. Considered selling both and getting a Gladiator, but the wife kinda nixed the deal. She liked the F150 for taking her lady friends out and about. So decided to finally do some upgrades with a bigger lift, bigger tires, beadlocks and such to the JK and keeping it. I would have thrown some money at the Gladiator to make it go on the harder trails I like. I also own a rock crawler, so I can do really stupid stuff.

    Given the fuel economy, that’s probably the most common view you will have of the truck.

    When I replaced the stock wheels on my wrangler I had to give them away and even then had a hard time doing so--including the tires!

    I really like these but the bed is too short for anything useful.
