  1. Pentastar power increase

    I was gonna respond, and then I read the above. AEV doesn't have "factory" vehicles. Neither does Black Widow. Or Shelby. Or Saleen. Or Roush. Not worth the effort to type out why this is because I'm thinking you must just be bored on a Saturday, but if your VIN shows up on the Stellantis...
  2. Pentastar power increase

    You answered your own question about why shops don't mess with the engine. You yourself took a vehicle that is incredible at off-roading, added a bunch of AEV upgrades, threw it on tires that no other vehicle on the road can drive on, put a lift on it, and are now asking a shop why they aren't...
  3. Pentastar power increase

    Can you explain to me why you want more power? I’ve driven Tacomas. I’ve driven Rangers. They have similar power, and have similar tow/payload ratings. It’s a midsize truck. If you want more power, why not just get a full size truck? I’ve never once been anywhere in my gladiator where the power...
  4. Let's talk about 10,000+ Ft/lbs torque...

    Somebody please help me understand- Why is the cyber truck claiming 10,000+ ft/lbs of torque yet Jeep isn't claiming 1,140 ft/lbs of torque in the Rubicon? the rubicon has a 4:1 reduction gear, the cyber truck has 13:1 reduction gears on its motors. I don't see a difference in completely...
  5. Huge Discounts on 2023 Gladiators!

    I bought my new ‘23 JTR in April from Gupton for $49,999.
  6. Should I stay or should I go?

    First, I think you would be absolutely bat-crap crazy to put $60k into a Gladiator Sport. If you buy it out and sell it, you aren't going to make some magical amount of money from a private seller- private buyers who have $30k+ to spend are going to head over to the countless dealerships that...
  7. Jeep Merrell Rubicon Boots

    I heard the Mojave boots are coming out this summer- they are going to be significantly more comfortable for walking on concrete, be really slippery in front, and they are going to reinforce some part of the boot that only 1 in 10,000 owners will use in such a way that they will notice:)
  8. Can anyone tell me what this is, and if the residual oil is a concern?

    I haven’t noticed any changes. I may take it in next week to have it looked at. I’m not overly concerned because I have another 27k on the warranty. Frankly I’m a little less concerned now that somebody else has the same issue, but that’s probably an irresponsible way to look at the situation.
  9. Can anyone tell me what this is, and if the residual oil is a concern?

    I took this picture today. The part in question is in the center of the photo, with the bolt head on it, a boot on the right, and what appears to be wetness from oil on the piece directly to the left of that bolt head. This piece is where the steering column meets another part, and there seems...
  10. What did you do TO your Gladiator today? [ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    Added Fishbone Offroad Tube Fenders front and back. The fender liners are on the way. I have to decide which ones I like the most prior to making that investment. I made the mistake of getting "Hawsksley wolf storms" on the cheap. I'm thinking about trying the Quadratec front fender liners- I...
  11. I need a favor. Next time I decide to go with any mod that is priced significantly less than any other on the market...

    I need one of you to come over to my place and punch me in the face about 3 times. This time it was Hawkley "Wolfstorm" inner fender liners. I spent the big bucks on the Fishbone tube fenders, and cheaped out on the liners. Just so you all save yourselves the trouble, they are hot garbage...
  12. Recommendations for mirrors when removing doors?

    I use the auto zone specials...
  13. Great little plow truck

    Gladiators have a 2,497lb base front weight on the gas rubicon. The FGAWR (Front Gross Axle Weight Rating) is 3,100lbs. That’s only a 600lb difference. Doesn’t the weight of the plow + snow exceed that gross axle weight?
  14. Base Sport owners…

    All of you Base Sport owners. I’m curious what you all do when you get them, and even more curious as to whether or not anyone has bought the Base with no intention of upgrading / modifying at all. Thanks!
  15. My 2022 Gladiator burned down... how?

    Have you ever dealt with big insurance claims? I do it all the time for my business. I made the mistake- once- of trying to manage a payout on my own. After that first time, I lawyered up. And that Lawyer gets me more for one simple reason: When attorneys work with attorneys, they start off...
  16. My 2022 Gladiator burned down... how?

    This is the worst part of it all. Car insurance doesn't ever make you whole. Whether it's a brand new vehicle or a ten year old vehicle, insurance companies literally have entire departments filled with people whose job it is to make sure that your insurance company pays as little as possible...
  17. Who uses a dash cam and what do you recommend?

    I use a Garmin mini 2, plugged into center console for those doors and roof off games where I don’t trust passers by.
  18. Some Of Jeep's Best Customers Simply Can't Afford A Jeep Anymore

    For what it’s worth, recall 19A prevents we Wrangler or Gladiator fans from purchasing any Wrangler or Gladiator with a manual. That means the actual lowest price you can drive out of a dealership for is $36,490 for the base 2-door Wrangler and $42,670 for a Gladiator until the manual stop sale...
  19. Some Of Jeep's Best Customers Simply Can't Afford A Jeep Anymore

    EXACTLY. This ties a bow around my comment that using "inflation" as some sort of apologetic answer ("simpin' for the manufacturers", as the young folks would say) is hogwash. Inflation has nothing to do with it. It's bean counters at corporations determining that they are leaving money on...
  20. Walkaround 2024 Tacoma TRD Pro and Trail Hunter

    This is the $100,000 question. Toyota charges $44k for the low-tier Supra. They charge $53k for the 3.0 premium. Toyota has a very good mix of reasonably priced vehicles, with meaningful differences in low vs. high tier trim level pricing. It won't surprise me one bit if the Trailhunter trim...
