  1. Willys or Mojave?

  2. MOJAVE Edition Gladiator JT Club

    Congrats! Just picked up my Mojave last weekend as well. I'm shopping wheels presently for the same purpose (to paint the ring orange). My search so far says: cheapest is Vision Nemesis, then the rest are all more than double that price (AEVs, Mopar, Raceline, Teraflex). 37s will fit stock...
  3. Willys or Mojave?

    I was looking at all trim levels and found that the dealer was more willing to negotiate on the Mojave (and Rubicon)...ended up getting my Mojave for right at 13% off MSRP which put it within $2k of a much less equipped Willys. At that price difference, it was an easy decision to go Mojave...
  4. Fully Enclosed Gladiator

    Understood, and as a manual transmission Gladiator owner I can empathize with you. That said, I know the Excursion platform well and it just plain does the "giant SUV" role better. They're big as can be, but I've wheeled with enough of them to know they can do everything but the tightest trails...
  5. Any reason to avoid Manual Transmission?

    Love seeing this as I just picked up mine and want to go 37s but was worried I’d have to regear immediately with it being a manual.
  6. MOJAVE Edition Gladiator JT Club

    Good to know (especially the backing up bit...I back up into a steep driveway daily to park).
  7. Fully Enclosed Gladiator

    Why not get an Excursion? For the kind of money you’ll spend you can get a low mileage 7.3 with tons of space, solid axles, and money left to build it out.
  8. MOJAVE Edition Gladiator JT Club

    Who is running 35 or 37 inch tires on a manual transmission? Have you regeared, and if so, to what? Trying to decide if I go 35s now and then spacer lift w 37s and a regear later. I live in the Appalachian mountains, so not as steep as folks out in the midwest, but not flat FL driving either.
  9. Mojave orange mods

    What wheels are those?
  10. Gladiators on Mopar 2" Lift Kit

    Is this with a manual transmission? I know the 8spd can handle a lot of tire, but I've not been able to find a lifted manual transmission Gladiator to try out. My plan would be to run 35s if it's anything other than a Rubi, or 37s with a Rubi due to the higher fender clearance (all with manual...
  11. Gladiators on Mopar 2" Lift Kit

    How do you like the MT with the 35's? I'm getting ready to purchase and keep debating if stock gearing can handle 35s or if I'll need to re-gear right away (which would make a base Rubicon much closer in price). Interested to hear your experience.
  12. Want to mount bike rack on bed rail without crossbars. Ideas please?

    Interesting...hadn't seen that one before. I'd be worried about mounting my bikes by the carbon rims, but maybe that's not an issue.
  13. Want to mount bike rack on bed rail without crossbars. Ideas please?

    Interested to see what folks have come up with. I'm looking for the same solution, and I love my 1Up racks so I'd be partial to being able to utilize those moving forward as well.
  14. 2022 Rumors?

    My experience has typically been the opposite. On a build, the dealer can discount as they have no skin in the game and are just getting a small fee for "hosting" the transaction, and maybe hoping it bumps their numbers enough to get a larger kickback from the manufacturer for the month. In...
  15. Hi, We're Harker Outdoors! We build Expedition Driven Campers for Jeep Gladiator.

    Looks like a nice option. $7499 for those wondering about pricing.
  16. TrailRax's Gulwing Bed Rack

    Would love to be able to enclose this (e.g., a canvas "top" that attaches under the top of the rack and then along the sides) to keep the dogs out of the elements.
  17. What features would you like to see on future Gladiators?

    Would love to be able to get the beefier axles and 4.10 gears but keep the manual transmission without having to get a Rubicon. The max tow is almost perfect, but I refuse to drive an automatic. I don't need it for the towing ability, and I don't need the extra stuff on the Rubicon. I just want...
  18. Falken Wild Peak M/T 295/70/17 or 33s SNOW Impressions

    Was that floating like a Cadillac or stinging like a Beamer?
  19. *POP* Spiiiiiiiiiiiiin HOLY SH!*

    If you've still got the factory rims and tires I'd toss those back on before taking it to the dealer. I could see them blaming it on an alignment shop or whoever installed the aftermarket wheels/tires (which is certainly a possibility).
  20. Jeep Dealer in Tampa Bay area: Best place to purchase

    I've had a few dealings with Jeep dealers in the Tampa Bay area over the years. One I got from Mike Tieman at Dayton Andrews St Pete (he was very straight up with pricing, but they didn't have the color I wanted...I found it at Suncoast and told Suncoast I'd buy from them if they would match...
