  1. Please tell me there's other soft top options

    It doesn't look much different than the lights people mount to the top of the windshield. My gut tells me I'll spend a lot of time with it in safari top mode for some shade. In KC you only get about 3-4 weeks of spring and fall weather where you don't want shade.
  2. Please tell me there's other soft top options

    $1,160 shipped. Shipping was $95 of that.
  3. Please tell me there's other soft top options

    Maybe we should form an OG Gladiator SunTop Owners club on the forum? LOL!
  4. Please tell me there's other soft top options

    That's the timeframe Ryan told me mine should ship as well. Apparently I got the last one they have from this batch.
  5. Please tell me there's other soft top options

    @Wkyfiregladdy & @Insert_Clever_Name_Here I was able to place my order last night, so I will be a guinea pig with you all! I can't wait!
  6. Please tell me there's other soft top options

    I got a response from Ryan but he didn't jump on my offer to buy now. He just stated they are trying to confirm availability for shipping. I replied telling him I would be happy to be one of the first to order (maybe the 3rd? LOL) so we will see. I can get a Mopar soft top for dealer cost...
  7. Please tell me there's other soft top options

    If he replies I'm ordering it, even if it is a bit more expensive than it maybe should be. They have first-mover advantage and I'll happily pay the premium to get something functional and easily removable.
  8. Please tell me there's other soft top options

    I just emailed Ryan as well. I'm ready to buy. I sent him a list of questions. Maybe you have already asked some of them? Does the Gladiator offering come complete with all surrounds, windshield bar and rear cab enclosure bar? Does it incorporate the Roomerang? I like that idea since the...
  9. New vehicle build confusion

    It's a glitch in the matrix. I had those issues when I built mine. I found that if you scroll down and elect the engine first, you can get all of the other option (except for the obvious ones that aren't available on diesels). I built, ordered, and bought a '21 JTRD with cold weather package...
  10. Muddy Kansas Rocks - Stock Sport to Modified Rubicon Gladiators Tackle Some Trails

    There is something about KRocks mud that is different than anywhere else. LOL! That place is REALLY a different animal when wet. Like the OP, I've been going there since it opened. Even the most well built rigs with the best tires struggle when it gets wet, and we have had a LOT of rain in...
  11. Explain different Gladiators tow capacity?

    Not to start an argument, but I have the non-steel bumper and still have the skid plate, so I'm confident all Rubis have it because it is there to protect the sway bar disconnect. You are 100% correct that the primary limit on airflow is the grill surface area. However, Scott Blum is pretty...
  12. Explain different Gladiators tow capacity?

    Each vehicle will have slightly different official ratings based on options. Adding leather seats, premium audio, trail rails, etc. adds weight to the chassis and therefore limits tow capacity because the chassis is only designed for a total gross vehicle weight. Adding passengers has the same...
  13. Trading in 2020 Sport S for a 2021 Rubicon, given used car prices are soaring?

    Agreed completely. It's just so hard to predict when Vroom will stop outpricing the market on offers given they are offering around 8-10% more than the other online dealers I checked and a solid 7% higher than the best dealer offer we received. Prices will stay elevated for a while, but the...
  14. Trading in 2020 Sport S for a 2021 Rubicon, given used car prices are soaring?

    Yep! Vroom was way above Carvana, CarMax and local dealers. Everyone we spoke with just shook their heads and said they can't understand what Vroom's strategy is, but obviously to never look a gift horse in the mouth and just take the deal. My assumption is this is a short-term bubble...
  15. Trading in 2020 Sport S for a 2021 Rubicon, given used car prices are soaring?

    In Missouri you can claim the sales tax credit from the sale of your old vehicle up to 180 days before and after your new vehicle purchase, so that is a big part of the math for us. We just agreed to sell my wife's 2019 4Runner Limited Nightshade to Vroom this week. We paid $43,200 + $1,800 in...
  16. Trading in 2020 Sport S for a 2021 Rubicon, given used car prices are soaring?

    Not really considering it seriously, but my wife's 2019 4Runner Limited Nightshade was $43k plus taxes, etc. in September 2019...out of curiosity I went on Vroom to see what they would offer the other day with 28k miles on it. Their offer is just over $46k. She wanted a Tahoe or Yukon when...
  17. Range

    Stock JTRD on mud terrains I'm averaging 22-23 MPG with mostly around-the-metro driving in KC area. It's easy to cruise 60-70 on most of the freeways around here even during rush hour. When I make the hike across the city to visit friends or whatever (40 mile commute) I'll typically drive...
  18. 16,000 mile EcoDiesel Gladiator review

    I'm right around 3k into mine and have the same impressions, but haven't gotten it on the trails yet simply due to lack of time to go play. However, I have a 68 Camaro and a 72 C10, both of which are awesome cruisers and fun to drive. If the sun is out and the top & doors are off the...
  19. Freedom panel bag delete

    Nope. I only got the hard top and the "delete" package was added. I'm assuming they are either short of supply or something weird like that. I didn't think to ask my dealer about it though.
  20. Anyone developing an aftermarket soft top?

    I wonder if we could get a rear curtain to work with that? If it had a base (similar to what I assume the soft top has) that attaches to the cab wall behind the seats I think it would work perfectly in combination with this safari to close in the cab. I bet a convertible shop could make...
