  1. 4.88's installed, 6-spd Sport S, 37's - Finally

    Great to hear! Thank you!
  2. 4.88's installed, 6-spd Sport S, 37's - Finally

    Quick question. Have you noticed any performance issues with the clutch, specifically? If you haven't seen, there's another recall out for the 6-speed. I'm frustrated because I was planning on 37s and 4.88s but I'm not sure I trust the clutch now...
  3. Recall: Manual Transmission / Clutch Recall for 2020-2021 Jeep Gladiator (Notice: 21V-028)

    Here's my biggest gripe with this, the problem description is nearly identical across both recalls. From March 2020: "In some circumstances, the clutch pressure plate may become overheated through friction, which may lead the pressure plate to fracture. A fractured pressure plate may crack or...
  4. Recall: Manual Transmission / Clutch Recall for 2020-2021 Jeep Gladiator (Notice: 21V-028)

    Beyond frustrated. I just had a $2,500 lift delivered and was about to order 37s. Now how do I know the clutch can handle that, even with regearing? And will they just stick me with the bill for a new clutch if I put those tires on and it breaks? (Yes). This is a little ridiculous. Hardware...
  5. Recall: Manual Transmission / Clutch Recall for 2020-2021 Jeep Gladiator (Notice: 21V-028)

    Is it me, or is the problem description almost identical to the March '20 recall? https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2020/RCLRPT-20V124-8022.PDF Yet, that required a new clutch...
  6. Running 37s on D44s - Besides gearing, anything else to think about?

    Thanks! I've looked into some of that. Hoping I can get by for a while without some of it. The suspension, tires and regear will be setting me back enough already. I don't intend to do any rock crawling or towing. It's my daily driver, but I'd like to be able to hit the CA fire roads and do...
  7. Running 37s on D44s - Besides gearing, anything else to think about?

    I have a Sport S (Non- Max Tow) and plan to regear to 4.88s when I put the tires on (BFG KO2s - smaller end of 37s). Other than gearing, is there anything else I should think about upgrading? Will be replacing the drive shaft eventually to correct for the suspension but am a little concerned...
  8. XPLOR Jeep Gladiator Half Bed Rack

    Worth a look. I'm still exploring options as I build my Jeep up but the idea was to keep the roof free so 1) no drilling into the hard top and 2) I can take the top off/down! lol THIS. Two of the pictures show it on the back of a truck bed mounted vertically. I'm gonna have to see how I can...
  9. Big Sur - 18 Jan 2021

    Well, it's certainly open now - though I did see signs for no camping/fires. Plenty of people out there today.
  10. Big Sur - 18 Jan 2021

    Took the Gladiator through one of the most beautiful trails I've ever found!
  11. Hard Top Roof Rack for Surfboard/boardsports?

    Looking for an alternative to the Mopar version (reviews sound pretty bad on Quadratec). I prefer to keep my boards out of the bed on longer trips and just in general. Anyone seen anything else similar to this? I checked Thule and Yakima but they were either out of stock or again, bad reviews...
  12. XPLOR Jeep Gladiator Half Bed Rack

    This is a bit of an odd request... Is there a way to mount a surfboard where you have the skis?
  13. NorCal Gladiator Folk?

    I'm in Monterey. Stock for now but would be interested in a quick trip to Hollister Hills (when it opens again) or just some fire roads!
  14. 2021 Sport S coming without the air dam?

    I have a '21 Sport S (no max tow), painted fender flares, black top, etc. It did come with air dams. I'm sure what you saw was a dealer upgrade/package. Unless you order a premium bumper, they come with that piece in between the bumper and fender flare.
  15. Offset question

    Clayton recommends 4.5"-4.75" of backspacing. But it looks like you'll have rubbing anyway with the 37's so you may not care. Negative offset sticks the tire (wheel) out further, positive does the opposite. I believe stock sport wheel are +44mm offset, as a reference. I had a very similar...
  16. Need some advice on lift kits. Mopar or Clayton?

    Thank you for the advice! I actually ordered the 3.5" Overland Plus w/ Fox shocks from Clayton on Black Friday weekend - they had a pretty good deal on it. Also figured the front drive shaft would need replacing anyway at some point. Est. Shipping is Jan 15. Congrats. Let me know how you like it!
  17. '21 Great White Edition Sport S MT build

    Update: Rubicon Rock Rails (from a forum member!) Access Lorado tonneau cover (planning to add JCR half rack later on) Mopar sill guards CMM ball joint for phone/tablet mount - Cannot recommend enough! On order: 3.5" Clayton Overland Plus w/ Fox shocks Installing shortly: 7" Oracle LED...
  18. Black Rhino wheel measurements with 3.5" lift?

    Thank you! Answers my question.
  19. Black Rhino wheel measurements with 3.5" lift?

    Thanks! Checking out that thread now. No max tow here. Planning to regear but that's a separate issue lol
