    "The Gladiator ran the table in this comparison, going four for four in our categories, but we'll have a better sense of how Jeep's newest model compares with the mid-size truck class once we've had a chance to drive it, and when Gladiator pricing is announced. That chance is coming very soon for us, so be sure to check back for our Gladiator driving impressions."

    TFL also said they were going to drive one at the end of March. Still a long way out but I guess that's better than nothing

    Will seem like forever for those of us waiting to get our hands on a JT.

    Great to see the JT holding its own against a class leader! :like: This gives me more confidence my wait for the JT will be worth it.

    "Runs the table".... after reading the article I'd say that is a bit of an embellished headline lol but still better than nothing. I'm hopeful it's as good as they say it is.

    i mean we're not playing 9 ball here, but Cars.com did say it beat that Tacoma in EVERY one of its tested categories for that article. Maybe beat the pants off of, or made the taco its B!T*H, lol

    To be completely "fair," and I'm not a Taco Fan - food or truck, but look at WHAT they "tested," . . . "tested?" . Geez, not exactly scientific stuff -- and completely subjective ! But it was another "fun" time for all ! While the waiting is going on !

    Oh i do agree. More tongue and cheek than anything. I don't know anything about Tacos, except that the hardshell ones with marinated pork from Ranchitos in Stevens Point Wisconsin are FANTASTIC!

    It was pretty weak after all,
    entry and exit
    cabin comfort and headroom
    interior quality
    in-cab cargo versatility

    That's about as much of a side by side test as you could make at a carshow.

    I don't see any mention about plywood. :angry:

    Well then, you can't SAY that you don't know ANYTHING . . . You've been, you saw, you bought, you ATE THEM ! And they were "FANTASTIC," your quote not mine, ha !
    I'm kidding . . . I like a taco once in a blue moon, but I much prefer Burritos, with lots of shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, the "green stuff," and sour cream -- all on top ! Mmmmm.

    edit/ps; My Navy Buddy (retired 2 years after me) who lives in Prairie Du Chien, Wisconsin (spelling may be off?) thinks (well thought at the time) that Navy Shipboard Tacos were "the shits" (i.e.; good stuff) -- but in reality they actually / usually & Literally GAVE YOU the Shits ! :ontheloo:.

    DRYFLY24 ? :swear: . I see you like my post . . . now your officially a "troll"?
    Are you having buyers remorse ? Come on tell the truth ! Just miss the "camaraderie" ? Just think of the fun you'll be missing, not being allowed in the JT Fly-fishing Caravan ! Taco's are NOT JEEPS ! Have I joked too long ?
    Sorry ...24, is there a Taco Forum I can go to & chat with you on ? :) :) :)

    He may have made the best decision haha. This long ass plywood carrying “truck” isn’t even priced or out yet. Taco is tried and true and the leader right now. Maybe hold out until you actually drive one with some plywood in the back before you lock in your opinion ;)

    Sounds like you may be next ? Gonna finally trade in the Ford, or are you secretly waiting on the new Ranger ? It's fine, I really don't care one way or the other . . . ! As stated . . . PLYWOOD NEED NOT APPLY HERE (to me) ! Won't get into a confrontation over the good, bad or ugly of ANY vehicle . . . tends to get caustic ! I do believe - least I hope - that DRYFLY24 knows I just kid . . . and the kidding was too obviously wanting (of me) . I had to joke with him - DRYFLY24, you concur ? YOU P.O'd at me ? It's ok, you can join us - even in your Taco, if you like, hopefully sometime by NEXT Summer ?
