  1. I Don’t Like Campers Trip Journal: Tonto National Forest Trip With Gladiator, ZR2, Canyon

    The JT pulls the big paved passes here in CO with this trailer and can maintain 50-55mph without working too hard. My '12 JKUR on 37s with 5.13s could bearly keep 35mph on those same passes with this trailer. All in all, I think the JT does a much better job towing it. Just at those extreme...
  2. I Don’t Like Campers Trip Journal: Tonto National Forest Trip With Gladiator, ZR2, Canyon

    A tiny trailer might be okay, but I feel anyone doing that would probably get gang beat by everyone else on the trail that day. lol. The only "offroad" mods I've done to the JTR are 35x12.5 tires. No lift or re-gearing here. My trailer is the only one I've seen up on Imogene, but I would not...
  3. I Don’t Like Campers Trip Journal: Tonto National Forest Trip With Gladiator, ZR2, Canyon

    No one is towing anything down Black Bear Pass. Those first two photos are from about a 3rd of the way up Imogene Pass from Ouray though.

    It all depends on what kind of trailer you are towing. My OGT trailer goes anywhere my JT will go. The only limitation it applies to me is turn radius, and a lot of times that can be overcome with good 3 and 5 point turns. lol
  5. Who is running an ARB twin compressor off the 40amp Aux switch?

    Did any of you put a relay on the power going to the compressor? I'll be installing it on the front wall of the bed (bed is covered) and would prefer not to have 40amps of power running hot back there all the time. My thought is to put a relay as close to the battery as possible and control...
  6. Who is running an ARB twin compressor off the 40amp Aux switch?

    How many of you are running an ARB twin compressor off the 40amp Aux switch? Had any issues with maxing out the switch amperage?
  7. JT Gladiator Upper Decker Hinged Cargo Basket Now Available!

    The stronger struts I used are not too hard to close, and I'm not the biggest guy. I think if you want to have heavy stuff on top of the UD and have the struts hold it open, you need to research locking struts. Get the right pressure to just assist with opening it and then lock them in place...
  8. JT Gladiator Upper Decker Hinged Cargo Basket Now Available!

    Alright, I order these 100lbs struts off of Amazon and they are a direct replacement for the struts that ACE includes with the UD. They make the UD stay open much better and I no longer worry about reaching through the side and the thing slamming down on my arm. The UD is still easy enough to...
  9. Tazer JL warning--disables some Sirius Guardian features

    I have to have the tire size adjustment. I wish that feature would work without the Tazer in the OBD port. If it comes down to it, I'll have to keep the Tazer and just not have the vehicle info on my Guardian page... I only really need the internet based remote start anyways.
  10. JT Gladiator Upper Decker Hinged Cargo Basket Now Available!

    I've got a different set of struts that are supposed to be here on Thursday. The compressed length is slightly shorter, but I don't think that will matter (longer would though). I'll try and get them installed either Friday afternoon or over the weekend and report back.
  11. Tazer JL warning--disables some Sirius Guardian features

    My JTR does not update the Guardian pages with the vehicle info either. The last update it received was 08/18/2020. I'm sure I need to update the Tazer, so I'll try doing that this afternoon and see what it does. I was talking to a rep on the Guardian site about it not updating, and they are...
  12. JT Gladiator Upper Decker Hinged Cargo Basket Now Available!

    The replacement struts for my replacement struts showed up and they were the wrong ones again :mad: Apparently they have 10" struts in the packages marked marked as 15" struts. So I guess I'll have to try either a different source or one of the different brands.
  13. Michigan Wanted - Mojave or Rubicon Hood

    You may already know this, but just in case... the Mojave and Rubicon hoods are not interchangeable.
  14. JT Gladiator Upper Decker Hinged Cargo Basket Now Available!

    Well, my replacement struts showed up and they sent me the wrong ones. I got some rinky-dink 10" struts that I can push in super easy. Another set of replacements should be here on Sunday.
  15. So, what is everybody towing?

    Thanks man! It has been a lot of fun so far!
  16. Questions on diesel after test drive.

    That's good mileage towing, but I don't think you would get that on the back roads out here in the Rockies.
  17. Questions on diesel after test drive.

    +110 right there. But I rarely saw 8th gear here in CO on the stock tires anyways.
  18. Blind Spot and Cross Path Detection in the Rain...

    Never even thought about that. But I don't find it too much of a bother, when it does flash in the side mirror it just gets me to do a quick scan to make sure everything is towing fine. I can almost forget my trailer is back there so a little reminder does not hurt.
