Has anyone done the holy cross trail in a gladiator? Can you share your mods/specifics of the journey?

With this said, is there a crew interested in this trail? I live west of glenwood canyon so I’m asking for the potentially far future.

Man. I thought about this. Not sure I would make it on 35s.

I have done Holy Cross in my TJ. 33s, lockers, 3” of lift, winch , if that helps. A friend was with me in his CJ 7, set up the same as me. There are winch anchors at French Creek to hook your winch to. I would recommend, for a Gladiator, for a couple of spots, a winch on at least one vehicle, 35s, and just take your time through the obstacles. The longer wheel base of the Gladiator will make for some challenges. It is a tough trail to do, but we had a good time that day.

In watching that video, 37” tires and at least 1 locker are required. Rock rails and a winch.

The JT’s length will have it scratching its belly and getting hung up.

I’d honestly be fearful of my diesel’s extra stuff underneath.
