While i have been super busy this summer and haven’t been able to do hardly anything. We finally made our way to the lake. The boat trailer and other stuff on the boat probably put it around 6,000lbs.

I can honestly say the gladiator super impressed me. And I’ve used hemi grand Cherokee and rams to tow before.

It shifted a little high but i know that’s by design. Stopped very good and efficient.

For a midsize truck I’m not complaining a bit.

Is this at stock tires and height? You're truck looks both lifted and stock at the same time at some angles, so I am not sure.

Hey! This is stock height, no leveling kit or lift. However it is 35x12.50 tires on the OEM LE wheels (7.5 inch wide)

Nice! What brand and type 35”x12.50 did you get? No rubbing at full turn?

Thanks for posting that. I’ll need one too but hoping for an OEM one I could add later. Any issue with the placement hitting your knees?

I just got back from towing my 42 Willys 500 miles from Colorado to Wyoming, the Gladiator did fine, however my gas mileage was about 9 MPG averaging 75 MPH. On the way back to Colorado average was about 17 MPG at 80 MPH without the trailer.
