    I never thought about rock chips, could be an issue. We are lucky as far as rust goes as long as you don't live near the ocean. MC has some very good products, I might even use their 3" lift kit when the time comes?

    Doesn't surprise me. I test drove one about a month ago. There was a super-tricked out bright red one on the lot that was 'used' but had less than 1K on the odometer. Fellow had purchased it without talking to his wife and she apparently lost her shit over the $60K expenditure and made him return it. I test drive the basic model and it was $36K. They only offered me $20K for my 2016 JKU.

    I think I have seen two on the road and they were very base looking models. It's an expensive and dumb looking pickup. Nobody should be surprised it doesn't sell well. And people looking for an image vehicle (which accounts for a lot of Jeep Wrangler sales) are going to be a normal looking Jeep and not a pickup.

    I have seen only two in the wild, one in a parking lot and one pulled off the side of the freeway (looked more like drivers switching seats than a breakdown), plus a few parked on dealer lots. I see JKUs every day but never the Gladiator; it sure seems obvious that they aren't selling.

    I'm a bit surprised to hear folks aren't seeing many. There are more Gladiators in our parking lot than JL's. I see at least a dozen around our small town already. I like the new truck but I'm waiting a bit before I jump from a JKU to one.
