  1. Mechanical break down insurance through Geico?

    Did they call you ;) :LOL::LOL::LOL: or did you discover this yourself?
  2. So, what is everybody towing?

    We all know what is said about opinions... Opinions are like assholes. Everybody has one and they all stink. :LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL:
  3. Gas mileage is concerning..

    I get 19+ mpg running around and over 24 mpg on the highway. That'll drop by 1 mpg when they switch to winter blend gasoline. Can't always rely on the dash for mpg's. Calc fill up to fill up to get a true gauge on what's going on.
  4. So, what is everybody towing?

    That looks AWESOME!!! How heavy is that trailer? How does it tow???
  5. What was your ride before the JT?

    Had a 2011 Grand Cherokee Overland with the HEMI. Before that, the same but 2008. The 2008 HEMI got way better fuel economy than the 2011. Dunno why...same engine but... 🤔 🤔 🤔 I stoopidly sold the 2008 when I moved to Kyiv, Ukraine in 2018...not realizing that I'd be permanently be back at the...
  6. What did you do TO your Gladiator today?

    SWAG...Scientific Wildass Guess. LOVE IT!!!! :CWL: :CWL: :CWL: :CWL: :CWL:
  7. What was your favorite Jeep (other than the JT)?

    My favorite was my '96 GC Laredo, I-6 and Selec-trac. 2" lift and wheeled the crapola out of it even as my daily driver. I had modified the engine thusly: FMS 22lb/hr fuel injectors, K&N drop-in with mods to the airbox to increase intake, performance cat and exhaust. She'd spank most small block...
  8. If you could do it over - What would you change?

    Maybe have waited a year to get the transfer case that is 2H 4FT 4PT N 4Lo. I had that in my '96, and '03 Grand Cherokees. AWESOME system. Wish they came out with it in the first year. Other than that, wouldn't change a thing. Ordered her just the way I want her.
  9. JT owners age group

    I'm 58. Turned 56 3 days after getting mine (drove it to Boston and watched the Red Sox CRUSH the Yankees at Fenway as my Birthday present to myself). Have had Jeeps since the mid 90's (see sig.) but mostly all GCs. Always wanted to try a Wrangler but now with nearly 3 acres to tend to and all...
  10. Longest Continuous Drive in Your JT?

    Drove from West Chester, PA to Raleigh, NC several times, including towing my travel trailer. Going down, it's I-95 S. to I-85 S., 395 miles and 6.5 hours (7.5- 8 hours with the trailer because of DC area traffic and can't use the EZPass express lane to skip the worst of it). Coming back, it's...
  11. Feedom Panels vs Traditional Sun-Roof

    Yup, that's the one. As others have said, all JT beds are the same so it'll fit perfectly.
  12. Easy rollbar speaker upgrade for Alpine Premium system

    Never noticed any distortion in mine but, then again, I guess I'm not turning it up to 11 every time :CWL: :CWL: :CWL: (Movie reference: 'This is Spinal Tap'... "Our speakers are louder than everyone else's, theirs only goes to 10. Ours goes to 11!!!" )
  13. Another newbie intro

    Welcome to the madness 👍👍👍 Your wallet will never forgive you ;) Remember, with all the mods available to us, JEEP stands for: Just. Empty. Every. Pocket. :CWL::CWL::CWL::CWL::CWL:
  14. Jeep Concepts Teased Ahead of SEMA 2021

    If Jeep does do the old M715/725 front end, I'd be willing to bet you would not be able to get it with a tow package. Doesn't look like it has enough opening for the required air flow across the radiator to handle the extra heat from towing. Still, looks wicked cool!!! QuadraTech has one that...
  15. Feedom Panels vs Traditional Sun-Roof

    I actually bought the rubber bed liner for my Overland (same as all other JT versions) on Amazon. I got the factory bedliner but it gets a little rough on luggage and other things sliding in and out hence, the need for the rubber liner.
  16. Increase towing capacity on High Altitude?

    I LOVE my cold weather package...the heated seats are awesome especially for when the lower back commences to hurtin'. In the winter, when it's really cold, do the remote start thingy and it actually turns on the heated driver's seat too 👍 👍 👍
  17. What did you do TO your Gladiator today?

    Link for these? They look really nice. Do they come in other colors?
  18. Feedom Panels vs Traditional Sun-Roof

    + 1,000,000 on the Sunrider top!!!!! BesTop makes it. Take out your panels, follow the directions to install the Sunrider top. When you want it open, unlatch it at the front and push it back and, it's open like you removed the panels. Get to your destination and want to close it, just close and...
  19. The Philistine thread - non-lifted Gladiators and not likely to be, either

    Not lifting my 2020 (got in 7/19) Overland either. Will go with a 275 vs. the 255 factory tire once these wear out for a bit more stability in towing, but that's it. Lifting and taller tires means lower fuel economy and more than likely re-gearing to be able to handle my travel trailer...
  20. What did you do TO your Gladiator today?

    LOVE mine. I got my BesTop Sunrider (the BestTop version ;) ) from QuadraTech. Goes on in the spring and comes off in the fall. It's nice to be riding around with it open then simply close it when destination achieved. When it commences to raining, simply pull over, pull it over, and voila, dry...
