I hit up most of the difficult & extreme trails in Moab, UT, including completing Pratchett Canyon in a Gladiator.
The Gladiator performed better over there than most of the shorter wheel base vehicles. However its bit of a bus if you're trying to make tight turns and it can get high centered...
I've got the same wheels but in a 8 lug pattern and I've been able to run them at 8 PSI without an issue.
Teraflex 4.5inch springs
Metal cloak control arms.
I ended up working on getting the new box and hydro assist up and running thos weekend.
For now I ended up mounting it to my old steering stabilizer mount. It's not perfect since the ram isn't 100% parallel, but it's pretty close.
I feel like the hose closest to the passenger side is a little...
What cap is that? I see photos with your Gladiator with and without it. I've been toying with the idea of something easily to remove.
I found the logo of it on one of your photos. It appears to be this bad boy.
How do you like it...
I'd do a full size truck and a Wrangler. The Gladiator does everything well enough, but not amazing. Its also nice to be able to wheel a vehicle hard and if you break something, you're not stranded. You can trailer it home.
Just show up. You sign in and pay at the front. They will give you a map if you request one. They even have a lodge with snacks, and food trucks.
If you haven't already got quick sway disconnects. I'd highly recommend it. It'll make your Jeep MUCH more capable on uneven terrain.
My honest opinion is I probably wouldn't get a Gladiator again. It does everything, but just ok out of the box. Ok on the road, decent off road. It has a (modern) Jeep fun factor though. I also hate the steering box. You'll likely have the new steel one with less problems.
If you do any...
I wouldn't have been as upset with messing up the pinion yoke if it didn't happen on a.more basic green or blue trail.
We were waiting for our group and I was just messing around a bit. I didn't see a big lump in the rock. Once I hear it I knew bit wasn't in good to be great.
I would not...
