  1. Gladiator Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier?

    All good questions. Here are some related thoughts ... not necessarily answers or definite solutions. -Might the flipped up license plate still be technically viewable, and not be in violation of the law in TX? -Many trailers have a location for a license plate to be removed from the towing...
  2. Gladiator Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier?

    I like the design features I see! Any idea on the price? Any idea when they will be available for purchase? If there will be a pre-fab order discount, I'm in.
  3. Best Combo Rock Slider Rail and Step

    On my JLU, I used the Mopar ones. On my JT, I have the Rockhard Patriot sliders. I'm making my own removable mud flaps using a $25 generic set.
  4. Gladiator Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier?

    The 'low' tow receiver makes the already poor departure angle even worse. I'd like a bumper like this ... but with an integrated tow receiver. An integrated one could be about 3" higher than the factory one. Anyone know of such a bumper? I'd like to avoid this ...
  5. What did you do WITH your Gladiator today?

    I got my JT rear ended after a month of ownership! :angry: And I have a MTB & 4x4 trip to Moab & back planned with a departure date of June 15th. :crying: An oblivious driver in a Durango ran into me at full speed while I was waiting at a red light behind 5 or 6 other cars. I was hit at about...
  6. No bed power? No problem! $9.99 do it yourself.

    LOL. Not joking. Thanks for the concern. Please tell me that pic was photo shopped! It is true that I know just enough about 12v dc circuitry to be dangerous. What I don't know, I'm asking and researching. Any 'weak spot' in the circuit, I've tested while exposed. I posted the result...
  7. What did you do TO your Gladiator today?

    I believe that was a reference to your " Planned add-ons: , Rock Hard sliders, Rock Hard mid width winch bumper, Sunrider top, Mopar lift, 37x11.5 tires on 18" rims" in your signature below your posts. And, I feel your pain. Things would go very badly for me if I spent more on mods...
  8. Best Combo Rock Slider Rail and Step

    I found something interesting on another slider thread. It is posted by the JCR rep who makes a slider that mounts to the pinch seam of the body as well as the bolts where the body mounts to the frame ... similar to the RockHard slider. "Pinch weld and frame is a bad idea. But we use the pinch...
  9. Best Combo Rock Slider Rail and Step

    I appreciate the real life experience you shared on the topic. I do think there is A LOT of off-roading that falls between the extremes of 'tub cracking flex' and 'mall crawling'. While I anticipate my JT holding up fine while wheeling spots where I wheeled my JLU (see list), I look forward to...
  10. What did you do TO your Gladiator today?

    I now have my main front to back wire terminating at an Anderson style connector for my air compressor. I tied into that line for a pair of 12v cigarette outlets with a 30amp inline fuse as well as a double USB outlet with a 5amp inline fuse. This is all currently connected to my Aux 1 wire in...

    I now have my main front to back wire terminating at an Anderson style connector for my air compressor.

  12. Best Combo Rock Slider Rail and Step

    This post really struck me the wrong way... (maybe I'm just getting ornery due to 'quarantine') A 'bash' with no supporting evidence? A recommendation to avoid a product with no reason? "There's a reason"? Please educate rather than bash. If you are willing to share your knowledge, I'm...

  14. Moab Run for JT only - Who's Down?

    Good point there.
  15. Best Combo Rock Slider Rail and Step

    Brian, Here are 3 pics ... The tubes are 1.5" lower than body mounted portion of the slider. But, the tubes are 2" higher than the frame. Most forum members will recommend 'angled up' sliders. Angled up will perform a little bit better in some offroad scenarios ... allowing the body to...
  16. Moab Run for JT only - Who's Down?

    I'm definitely down for a trip somewhere sooner than later! I'll keep a summer Moab trip in mind. I hope to hit the Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway in Kentucky sometime in May (and rock climb in the Red River Gorge) ... as soon as camping is allowed in KY. All I will need is gas. It will...
  17. Best Combo Rock Slider Rail and Step

    I have experience with both the ACE & RockHard sliders. I bought the ACE sliders in 2018 for my JLU. They come away from the vehicle enough to be used as a step, but have no protruding step to get hung up on anything. They mount to the frame so they are super sturdy! The cons - they don't...
  18. Jeep invites you to the first ever Jeep Brand digital livestream roundtable

    Did they discuss body-mounted mirrors? I don't think they did. :( Maybe they'll put them on the next batch of concept vehicles built. :fingerscrossed:
  19. Jeep invites you to the first ever Jeep Brand digital livestream roundtable

    Based on responses & enthusiasm ... It seems like they like the idea of a larger engine, but are unlikely to add one for various unspoken constraints. But, they seemed excited about the increased torque potential in a diesel and an EV. Did I read them right?
  20. HYDRO BLUE PEARL Gladiator JT Club

    Oh, I get it, those pics are from Etsy. I personally think blue on blue might be too much blue. Black is easy to get and ties other tire/trim pieces together. Do you have any other accent colors in mind? White, light gray, bronze, orange, yellow, green, red?
