  1. Who would be interested in a two door Gladiator?

    The number of people saying they “would” buy a 2-door Gladiator, or anything with 2-doors for that matter, tends to get overstated on online forums. In the real world, the ratio of 2-door / 4-door variants, keeping everything else constant, is roughly 1 / 9. Wrangler is the closest...
  2. What did you do TO your Gladiator today?

    Thanks! Here you go.
  3. What did you do TO your Gladiator today?

    Received my custom-made Jeep center cap decals. They look terrific! I got the idea on this forum. Thank you!
  4. Damaged Front Bumper Upon Arrival...Again...

    These days I’d be lucky it arrived at all. I ordered a tailgate reinforcement; it was supposed to arrive by Dec. 28 but got lost. Amazon refunded my money. I ordered another one from a different supplier; that one arrived as scheduled and in one piece. The original order finally appeared on...
  5. Turn off heated seats and steering wheel?

    Yes. It turns off automatically when you move somewhere warmer :LOL:
  6. Bring a boot/wheel lock for road trip?

    I don’t know where you are going to be staying, but that seems overkill to me. I think you are overthinking it. Go out and have fun.
  7. Very curious about the typical forum member - why all the modifications?

    This is my 11th Jeep: 2 Grand Cherokees and 9 Wranglers. I have owned 30 vehicles in my lifetime. The reason I stuck with Wranglers is because it is the most versatile vehicle on the market, period. They can get me to the grocery store just as easily as to the top of a mountain ridge. I...
  8. Delivery Dilemma

    Most Rubicons never see a dirt road, either. We live in a time of Instagram, when people will buy a $60,000 Jeep, spend another $10,000 in mods, so that they can project an adventurous image online. People who really know Jeeps can see past the stereotypes and the hood stickers.
  9. Hated my Jeep color in person. Which do I pick now?

    For me it was the opposite: I didn’t care for Snazzberry until I saw it in person. The color looks deeper and richer in the flesh than it does on the screen.
  10. Delivery Dilemma

    There must have been something wrong with that Sahara. I have sold 3 Rubicons and 3 Saharas over the years: never had any issues selling any of them. They all sold within a week and held their value very well. The key is bringing them back to factory spec as much as possible, and pricing them...
  11. Hated my Jeep color in person. Which do I pick now?

    Hopefully you are getting your full deposit back. Dealers, at least in California, are only allowed to keep deposit money as long as it goes towards the purchase of a vehicle. Good luck. I vote for Sarge.
  12. Overland - I’m sure it’s been asked before (apologies in advance)

    Correct. Overland gets you stitched door armrests and center console, stitched top and front of the dashboard, and a fold down rear armrest with built-in cup holders. Overland also includes unique fenders that accommodate LED turn signals*, the aforementioned side steps, and additional sound...
  13. Overland - I’m sure it’s been asked before (apologies in advance)

    Mine is a Sahara, which is the same as an Overland, with Selec-Trac and rear LSD. Last week it got a Mopar 2” lift, 35” tires and 17x8.5 alloy wheels. Yesterday it got a YETI adjustable track bar and JKS Flex Connect swaybar links installed. She was virtually unstoppable in the snow; I expect...
  14. Overland - I’m sure it’s been asked before (apologies in advance)

    For perspective: an Overland is still more capable on the trail than your average Tacoma, which is considered one of the most off-road worthy trucks on the market. The Overland is also easier to modify, lift, and to accept larger tires than a Tacoma ever will. An Overland with rear LSD and...
  15. Q4 and Full-Year 2020 Gladiator Sales Numbers Reported. 77,542 Units Sold Total

    Here are some preliminary numbers: Year-over-year: Industry is down 14.3% --Ford still has to report FCA was down 17.5% --Jeep was down 14% Winners: Tesla up 20%, Volvo up 2%, Mazda down 0.2%, Hyundai-Kia down 7.6%, Toyota down 11%, GM, VW and Subaru down 12% Losers: Nissan down 33%...
  16. Q4 and Full-Year 2020 Gladiator Sales Numbers Reported. 77,542 Units Sold Total

    I can't defend anyone buying a Tacoma. I bought one and sold it after six months. The assembly quality and ride comfort were top notch, but the motor and automatic transmission were atrocious, the driving position gave me cramps, and the navigation looked like it was developed by Atari. We...
  17. Anyone had luck with Hooke road parts?

    I have seen plenty of Hooke listings on Amazon; it is normally for cheap crap made in China.
  18. Q4 and Full-Year 2020 Gladiator Sales Numbers Reported. 77,542 Units Sold Total

    The numbers are still being tallied. Tacoma is normally the segment leader with 240,000 units, followed by GM and Ford with 100,000 to 120,000 units each. Ridgeline normally sells a steady 50,000 units, although I have been hearing that sales have been inching up. I can't remember where...
  19. Q4 and Full-Year 2020 Gladiator Sales Numbers Reported. 77,542 Units Sold Total

    The shutdown earlier this year does not explain these sales numbers. The entire industry had one of its strongest second halves ever, but FCA didn't gain from it to the same extent as its competitors. JT 's natural sales level appears to be 80,000/year. Steep pricing is obviously part of the...
