    I’m not sure what the details on this Jeep Gladiator are, but it was spotted in Novi, Michigan and looks like it could be riding on 2" Mopar lift kit, beadlock wheels and 37" tires.

    Looks legitimate. Grill slots are bigger than JL

    Might be a Max Tow Sport/Sport S given the flares (two piece mold-in-color) and market lights. Looks great lifted and I would guess 37" KM3's on Mopar beadlocks.

    Those tires are much bigger than 33s and it has beadlockers. Looks great!

    I agree I bet it's a Mopar 2" lift with 37's, looks great.

    The front bumper looks like the Euro spec bumper.

    Standard Sport/Sport S offering for the JL/JLU and now the JT. Definitely resembles the JK euro bumpers but they are putting them on domestic Jeep's as well.

    its a lot of fun! and pretty exciting that you can show what you are working on. As soon as they showed the GMC Serra Denali we pealed all the camo off within hours when we were out west. No more "what the hell is that?" looks haha.

    37s on just a 2" Mopar lift and not even a Rubi! 38's with same lift on Rubi?!? Tho not sure how it is with full articulation on this JT.

    Yeah the 37s and 2" lift were pretty much what I was planning on doing. It looks good!

    Hopefully they make 37s an option from the start. I'd hate to buy a JT with rubber I'd just immediately sell on Craigslist :/ seems like a waste

    The Max-tow group will definitely be the ticket for those who want the cheaper path to big tires. I can't believe they fit 37's with only 2" and the non-highline flares.

    The question for me is, does he have a size 37 spare, and was he able to stick it underneath with a little modification or is it chillin in the bed or the garage ?
