  1. Gladiator Off-road Capability

    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...
  2. Lets see all those Gladiators with lifts and bigger tires!

    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. I'm running 39x13.5R17 KM3s Teraflex 4.5inch springs Rockcrawler shocks Metal cloak control arms. UD60's etc..

    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...

    I ended up going with RedNeck Ram for Hydro assist steering. Getting rid of the aluminum steering box. It has always been pretty sloppy.
  5. Where did you WHEEL your Gladiator today?

    Here's a few from Hidden Falls on Saturday.
  6. From Taco to JTR and 40s!

    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. Edit: I found the logo of it on one of your photos. It appears to be this bad boy. https://gofastcampers.com/pages/platform-camper-2022 How do you like it...
  7. If money wasn't an issue

    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.
  8. Where did you WHEEL your Gladiator today?

    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.
  9. Where did you WHEEL your Gladiator today?

    At Hidden Falls? Totally. It has a ton of different trails within the park. Even if you wanted to tackle lets say a level 3 trail. There's almost always bypasses near the more advanced spots.
  10. Texas Check In

    Which deal did you order from? I know the fleet manager at NW Dodge, and South Fork has a good relationship with customers.
  11. Texas Check In

    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...

  15. Texas Check In

    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...

    Here are a few from Wolf caves. I included a couple photos of my pinion yoke and drive shaft damage. The yoke has a crack in it.
