Dang. My Sport just crossed the 38k mile mark. I will thus expect expensive repairs before it's next oil change
Does your have the aluminum steering box? I had mine upgraded last week and it is a absolute night and day differenceThe only thing I agree with in the review is the steering issues. It didn’t bother me at first, but after 10K miles it’s starting to wear on my patience. I had a 2-door JK and it didn’t wander or have as much play in the steering as the JT. It was horrific on our last 8hr trip to FL. I could barely keep the MF in my lane when a stout crosswind would blow or another larger vehicle would pass us. I was getting passed all the time too. I don’t get in a hurry and run about 70. There were assholes in pickups and large SUVs running 90 past me that nearly pushed me out of my lane when they would go by. Shit was a nightmare.
Nothing else bothers me about the Gladiator.
I do. I have been hesitant making the swap due to all of the issues people post about after having it done. I’m probably going to suck it up and take it in though. I guess I can’t complain if I don’t take the steps to try and fix it.Does your have the aluminum steering box? I had mine upgraded last week and it is a absolute night and day difference
Do you have a Cliff's Notes version on the problems after the change? I did a quick search and didn't see anything. I've been absent from the forum for about 6mos.I do.

Hmmm... you've got multiple drivers at C&D ragging on a Mojave (built for sand) in freezing Michigan conditions... just look at all the pictures they've posted over the last 10,000 miles...they are beating the crap out of that JT! On top of that, they have a manual transmission which had a recall (ref comment about ragging on)... seriously, how many of you have let other people drive your manual car/truck/suv and watch them stall or trash on the clutch? Look, It's a first year production vehicle with a few relatively minor issues that are being resolved quickly and that's the underlying story. In the end, C&D is offering an unfair opinion of a vehicle that for the vast majority is issue free and a lot more fun than an over rated Toyota. C&Ds article was a good reminder why I no longer have a subscription to them - they offer far to many biased opinions.
