Like most of us here I knew I wanted the Gladiator the second I heard it was being released, but as a family of four we opted for a 4Runner (TRD pro). But after a short time owning the 4Runner I sold it and picked up a '20 Gator JTR which is now shaping into my dream Jeep. Our other vehicle is a Gobi '18 Jeep Wrangler (JKU) with a bunch of AEV goods, so I had a pretty good idea what I wanted for my gladiator. I knew I wanted the Rubicon as I have always regretted not getting my JK with the Rubicon trim. Even though the little Sahara has proven itself capable.
This build will be focused on getting my family to remote areas of the country, all while hauling our Escapod trailer. Not focused so much on heavy off-road/rock crawling (Dare I say Overlanding?). And of course for the thill of getting to work.
