2022 Gladiator Rubicon
Just passed the 13,000 mile mark in 21 months of a lease on my 2021 Overland. Works well pulling my Airstream Basecamp 20X. I found that stock tires are not good on the soft sands of Bolivar, Texas beach. Still undecided on keeping it at end of lease. We are way under on mileage to date. No issues other than upgrading to factory LED headlights. Original lights were useless out here on country roads.
Definitely agree about the stock halogens being worthless. Adding LEDs was the best upgrade I’ve done followed closely by a set of RokBlokz and a headliner. After 7 months and almost 8,000 miles, I am still in love with the Gladiator. I've towed travel trailers up to about 5,600 pounds and carried several appliances and this thing does everything I ask. There have been a couple of small issues, but the only ongoing problem is the argument that comes up every dang time my wife which vehicle we are taking to town

Owned it since August 2020, approx 14,000 miles.
I was happy with it until two weeks ago when out of nowhere the transmission stopped working, luckily it happened near my home and I wasn't on the freeway - threw a bunch of codes, and would not shift to any gear. Its been sitting at a dealer now and they have a transmission on order - but no eta.
I'm sure it will eventually get fixed, but having to replace such a major component is worrying for me - I'm at the mercy of the dealer tech to do the job right.

Since September of 2019. Will hit 50K miles before the next oil change. Still love it. Sting Gray Sport S 6 Speed with everything I wanted and nothing extra. Threw on some Rubicon take-off tires and wheels at about 35K. Wouldn’t take anything for it.

Going on 23 months and 33k miles. My wife still says I spend too much time thinking about it, talking about it, doing things to it or planning to do things to it.

16 months and 22k, no real issues to note. I’ll only sell it if they ever offer a 392, which probably isn’t going to happen.
