    Double check my numbers please?
    The Crawl ratio is 77.4 to 1 on the Ecodiesel.
    I just want everyone to recognize that with 455 lb/ft of torque, that multiplies out to 35,217 lb/ft at the wheels!!!

    That is more than the 1999 F550 PowerStroke!
    Newer PowerStrokes have of course significantly more, ok yeah.

    The 3rd gen Dana 44 axles have thicker tubes for this reason.
    But I just want people to realize this Jeep truck is Severely Overbuilt. It is in every way a Lion in sheep’s clothing.
    Gladiator = BEAST!

    How are you getting 77.4:1 with a 4.0 t-case? Is there some kind of torque converter multiplier as well? I only drive manuals.

    Using the gear ratio of the 8 spd transmission, I assume.

    Never heard of a 1st gear lower than 6.xx:1, and there is no way this tranny has a granny gear.

    Per wiki a torque converter can net around 2.5:1 multiplication. 77 / (2.5 * 4) = 7.7:1 first gear. Is that so?

    I was scrolling past this comment as I said to my wife ‘there are finally some real leaks on the new Jeep pickup - they’re calling it the Gladiator’ her response was a very enthusiastic ‘ooooooooh, that’s a good name!’

    Soooo, in my world - you’re wrong. ;-)

    Pretty sure it's been said the diesel will only have a 3.73 axle. Even for Rubicon.

    Hadn't seen that, but if so that makes no sense.

    Since we know the frame size Amy idea on total JT size? Would like to tape it off in my garage and picture how it would fit.

    Still no pics or renders of a topless Gladiator - kinda surprising given that being a convertible is one of the big selling points!
