  1. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    The point is that Jeep can build way more vehicles with lower labor costs.
  2. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    So that statistic is for labor hours. Not sure where they are no for the JL and JT, but the JK had the distinction that it went together in just 13 1/2 hours. Again, that's labor hours, not line time. Much of that comes from outsourced sub-assemblies at Supplier Park (Toledo Assembly) While...
  3. Torsen/TrueTrac helical limited slip differential?

    Tougher on the JL/JT than the JK. The JK didn’t have a front axle disconnect, so the truetrac (or any lsd) could just ride along unbothered. With the axle disconnect each side of the diff is supposed to spin in opposite directions. To run an LSD , you need to defeat the CAD.
  4. Gladiator Mojave Part Numbers # List

    Somewhere in the Mojave test cycle they found the AL knuckle needed to be upgraded to an iron one.
  5. Gladiator Mojave Part Numbers # List

    I would have thought that the most interesting part (especially for Rubicon owners) would be the iron knuckles, boosting front axle strength.
  6. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    Really had to dig: If you go down to the options in the 2021 order guide, in the "group Detail" section, p23, you see the this- EXJ 3.0L V6 TURBO DIESEL ENGINE W/ESS G3 E E E • 19 GALLON FUEL TANK (NF1) • 245/75R17 BSW A/T DUELER TIRES (TTH) - W/O 2TK OR 2TW • 3.73 REAR AXLE RATIO (DME) • ABS...
  7. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    In a DT Ram, the ED weighs 375lb more than a Pentastar truck.
  8. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    The Ram with 3.21 gears and comparable size tires has a higher GCW than the JT with 3.73 gears. The limitation in GCW/tow rating is cooling.
  9. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    It's definitely a puny tank. Hopefully Titan will have a bigger midship tank available. They have one for the Colorado.
  10. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    Down here the diesel option has been $4k over the Pentastar for Grand Cherokee and Ram , but often diesels are excluded from promotions and sales, making it a bigger premium.
  11. 2021 Gladiator EcoDiesel Official EPA MPG and towing capacity

    Neat trick how that Diesel rubicon loses 1 mpg highway AND city, but keeps the same combined score. the tow rating has NOTHING to do with the 3.73 axle ratio. The Ram 1500 uses the same trans and with 3.21 gears and 32" tires has a 13,900 GCW. On 33" tires, you're only turning about 2080rpm at...
  12. 2021 Jeep Gladiator Official Specs & Info. Sarge, Nacho & Gecko Colors Added

    The diesel using a 3.73 axle doesn't mean it won't have the the 4:1 Rock-trac case. Two different things.
  13. Another Stop/Start system issue - and a total dealer meltdown

    Wasn’t suggesting by a long shot that the service department’s negligence was ok, just that the OP shouldn’t lose any sleep over it.
  14. 37″ vs 35″ Tires Side-by-Side Comparison Look

    Gears cost anywhere from $1600-2400, depending on the shop. Reinforce axle? Best lift? Depends on what you’re gonna do.
  15. Another Stop/Start system issue - and a total dealer meltdown

    Yeah. Door electrics are all shieleded pretty well, rugs are designed to drain and dry. I would just insist they owe you a full interior/exterior detail when you choose. What I can’t get past is that they can’t fix it right away and don’t just cough up a loaner.
  16. Is anybody happy with the new Gladiator

    This! Unless your entire life plays out on narrow 2-tracks, its almost impossible to make a rational argument for the Gladiator over the value and capability of a full-size truck. The Gladiator is just enjoyable. Its fun. Its different. You have to decide if those are worth while trade-offs for...
  17. 2021 Jeep Gladiator Build & Price is UP

    I would have expected Snazzberry to be a green color.
  18. AEV Releases Gladiator JT350 & JT370 Packages & Parts

    If ANY aftermarket bumper has been qualified for air flow, its one from AEV. If you mount 7" round lights to it, that's another matter.
  19. AEV Releases Gladiator JT350 & JT370 Packages & Parts

    my bad. not new color, nonetheless.
