Picked up a black 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon 6speed Manual hard top from Adams Jeep of Maryland on January 11. Planning out my build now and lining up some time/help for the build. Here is what I've ordered so far....
Attaching links for all and pics of the more substantial stuff. I'll post install pics/vids and reviews once I start getting stuff in and find time to install.

Installed the Quadratec rear grab bars. The front ones will require me to remove the roof panels. Wasn't ready to do that at lunch time today so it will have to wait. Pretty easy quick install and looks useful. Does require a T25 and most of my Torx stuff had a T20 and a T27 but I did find a T25. One note for the back seats - the first instruction should be to sit in the Jeep. Minor but it took me a few seconds to orient myself to the instructions.

Got a Molle bag (IFAK) in Coyote for the back of my seat from Yukon Outfitters for $10 at the Outdoor show. I like the size but prefer black. Thinking a small first aid kit, sunscreen, bug spray, gum, candy and misc stuff in 4 of these - 2 on each seat. Need to find black now

"Spartacus" - if I had a dollar for every Gladiator owner who's calling his Jeep that I could pay off my CC mod bill.

Seriously, there's one in the current issue of TREAD magazine - it was in the SEMA show according to the article

Yeah....not too original. Kids named it. It’s name is JTR Spartacus. So Spartacus is its last name. Not sure I can name any other Gladiators besides Maximus from the movie Gladiator. Russel - as in Russel Crowe was also in the running. Maybe Kirk - in remembrance of old movie Spartacus - Kirk Douglas himself, who just passed away?

Good for you (the kids named it). I like "Kirk" - you could always call it "Antoninus" (or "Anton" for short) as that was Tony Curtis' name in the movie :)

I am liking the sound of this exhaust. Not to mention the quality of the stainless. Great choice!
Can’t wait to get this. I’ll do an write up/review.

Here is what I’ll use to scuff and paint the end section so it blends in.
