    I always liked the name Scrambler . Gladiator is a full size truck in my opinion ( I think it depends on your age and if you grew up with them)

    Thought I would take this time to switch from the hard top to the soft top. Couldn't resist a drive through the country when i was halfway done though. I really just wanted the giant box out of my garage. I didn't really think it through as I now have a hard top taking up the same space.
    It wasnt a very difficult job and I was able to do it all by myself. The hard top is not very heavy but it is awkward. My tonneau cover increased the challenge a little but I was still able to do it.

    Thanks for pics like this. I am getting ready to pick up a Gobi Sport S and want to put on these wheels and tires. Did you need to put on Rubicon shocks and springs because of rubbing?

    I wanted a Rubicon look. Dont need all the Rubicon items since I never used it on my last one. Just do light off road when we travel to CO.
    Bought all the stuff on craigslist.
    Protection rails for $300. Full Rubicon suspension $300. Steel skid plate free. Full rubicon wheels and tires $800. Rubicon owners are almost giving their stuff away.
    Now I just need a rear steel bumper.

    Those wheels and tires will fit without the lift but they look weird to me .

    sweet deal. people around here are asking between $1200-1800 for the wheels and tires. suspension $200-300. I will get some of the factory running boards instead of the rock rails.

    Those wheels are my favorite jeep wheels (oem or aftermarket) so I am more than happy that most don't like them.

    I hear ya... I was looking at the Gator but when my wife and I saw the Rubicon lettering on the Gobi clear coat during my Jeep Build, that was all it took.

    Didn't like the gray dash panels. Nothing else gray in the truck. I dont like the red on Rubicon either (unless it's a red truck). Wish all just came with the leather ones, like Overland.
    Decided to paint the panels Gobi since the color can be seen inside on the door jams and roll cage.
    CJ Offroad has a good instruction video on you tube. Sanding and waiting for paint to dry took the longest.

    What do you guys think ?

    I'm still partial to the leather ones. Wife loves it this way.

    Also ran a power cable from the center console to the windshield behind everything since I had it torn apart.

    I had thought I would do this before I got mine but the Rubicon dash has grown on me and I like more than I thought would. I think if it wasn't the mat red color I would feel different.

    But this looks good. You did a nice job.
