Any wind noise from the big/rock guard? I am getting chips on my hood and haven’t gone off road yet

If you mean this one, not a peep. It is rock solid at 85mph which I typically hit on my morning commute.

First pull with the bigger trailer!

Dry weight 6k lbs
Tounge 700 lbs

Not going to win any races but it didn't make me miss my 5.9 Cummins. Just pulled it about 15 miles from storage down to get some warranty work done on it before camping season starts.

It met all my expectations as far as performance, all the way down to the 8mpg average! Need to find a bigger fuel tank or some Jerry cans, 8mpg x 20gal is not very far!!! Also mirrors, the narrow body makes the mirrors useless.

Once we got the WD hitch set up the truck sat pretty level, it is sitting with full load in the picture, the tongue jack is off the block. I run a Curt WD hitch with dual sway control bars, I like the adjustability of the set up. Also ran same set up on our bigger trailer and 1 ton van with no problems on cross country trips.

She’s a blank canvas for now but I finally was able to get my hands on it after getting stuck in quarantine for a month. Ordered it late January, picked it up yesterday. Garage full of parts ready to go!

Well it’s just about road worthy now. Alignment and steps go on tomorrow. I’ll drive it a bit before doing the 5.13s

Looks incredible. I think this may have locked in my decision to run bronze wheels on my GCLE. Are you running 4.10s now? Curious to hear how it drives.

2020 Gladiator Granite max tow sport s
As of today I am officially in the Granite club. When I first started my search it was my least favorite color, then when I saw it in person it looked awesome. I found 2 near me and neither dealer wanted to do the deal right, lazy and pessimistic.

It's been a long process finding a dealer to work with that gave me 4k over any other dealer offered for my trade. Just drove 60 miles home in a max tow S model with black interior. Very happy, cant wait to build it out.
