Picked my Gladiator up yesterday, so now I actually feel like a real member of the Thread (and the Forum for that matter)! Will be installing Hard Tonneau bed cover, black stubby antenna, door sill plates, driver dead pedal and dash decal above glove box today. New wheels/tires and coil puck lifts are in the garage and will install as soon as lug nuts arrive. Thought stock would work but they don't fit the new wheels. Pics to follow of all the above.

Came out of a convenience store today on the Rez, to find two cute young Indian girls snapping shots of my truck with their phones! I said, “Y’all takin’ pics of my truck?”
They said, “Yeah... do you mind? It’s the first Gladiator we’ve seen! Can we look inside?”
I said, yeah and let ‘em ooh and ahhh... then I said, come around to the back of the truck and I’ll show you something special... I showed ‘em the Launch Edition badge... they giggled, oooh’d and ahhh’d some more... and took more pics of the badge close up!
My truck is a Rock Star! ⭐ ;{

ROAM Offroad steps/rock rails (as soon as they're available) and Hotheads headliner kit are next on the list.

VERY NICE!!!
I see you have the AMP Research Power Steps XL. I have those too. They're the first thing going on mine when I get it.
Any pics of how they look extended? I'm curious as to the distance to the ground and door sill when they're down.

Dang. I need to stay out of the various colour threads!

I was all set on the GCM (my current JKR is this colour), then I saw the Sting Gray and said "nah, let's do something different - that's the colour I want!"...then my wife has always liked Billet Silver, so I've been ogling those in that thread. Then people start taking delivery of their Gators and post pics making me think "hmm...maybe I should go Gator."...then I pop back in here and see some sweet GCM JTs. Now I'm wondering if there will be an Anvil available next model year. :headbang:

Truth is, all colours look good on the JT! :rock:

Needed to do some work on our blind before hunting season, so decided to break the truck in going out in the field. By the time I got done it needed a full bath from all the mud.

I don't think that's an understatement. All colors DO look good on the JT.
I had a GCM on a JKU.
I have a Sting Gray on my JLU.
I have black (long story) on my JT.
I don't think you can go wrong with the GCM, Sting Gray, or even the Billet Silver. The Billet lightens and darkens depending on the light. I like it particularly with the black roof and black fender flares. I think the Gator and Gobi also look pretty good with black and black. Then when you add black wheels in there it looks even more stunning. These color decisions drive me nuts. Good luck with your color choice.

GCM looks good in the snow too. (at least that's my opinion =P )

Sweet! Still waiting for mine. Hoping I’ll have it next week.
Are those the factory wheels?

They are Launch Edition take-off rims/tires. They complete the look better than the stock units.
