First of, this is what I would get... a white Rubicon with a soft top... but only if offered with half doors. Then I would put 37 inch tires on it and some removable safari soft top for the bed.
But guess what? I’m afraid Jeep hasn’t designed the Gladiator with the half doors in mind. You see with half doors, the part of the doors above the yellow line would be black material like the soft top that would be removable. Notice the white metal body between the green and yellow lines in the back. Things don’t line up and it would look funny with black soft top material down to yellow line at doors, but white metal up to green line in the back.
If you look at a JL it doesn’t have this problem. Things line up fine. Jeep did promise half doors on the JL and it seems to have been accounted for in the design. It seems not so for the Gladiator. I hope I’m wrong.
Of course you should be able to still get the JL half doors and put them on a Gladiator, but darn they make it complicated.
