What’s up guys, pretty new here figured I would start a build post to share my Gladiator.

My previous daily driver was a 2015 Jeep JKU. I sold it to get a Gladiator.

I also picked up some back up light brackets from Carter Fab. Got them mounted up, still need to wire.

I was gonna try to roll my 37s with no lift, but with a 17x9” wheels and 3.5” backspace they hit the front bumper.

so I’m still deciding on lift, and front bumper. I will post next update when decided.

Put on a Smittybilt Mod bumper. Not my favorite, the bumper I want is on backorder. This will do for now until later. Now I have space for my tires.

Added a Husky rear floor liner to keep the floor clean from the kids.

Next got my tires and wheels bolted on. (No Lift) Still deciding on lift.
17x9 Grenade beadlocks with 3.5” backspace, and 37” Nitto Ridge Grapplers.
The front clears thanks to the bumper, rubs a little on the rear fender liner. Will be ok for now.

Added a few little things from Amazon. Got some cup holder inserts, and a neoprene console cover to give some cushion for the elbow, wish they had a option for the door arm rest.

Also got a lift on order yesterday. 2.5” Rubicon Express lift with adjustable front lower arms, a synergy steering box brace and Rubicon express NFS steering stabilizer.

Still can’t believe these 37s fit with no lift. Looks kinda crazy and get all kinds of strange looks driving around town.

You have good taste, my friend. I have a Sting Grey JT, and an '88 YJ I'm currently working on to be a rock buggy. I bought the JT as a tow rig for the YJ. I'd love to know more about your buggy sometime.
