We headed to Utah and ran the Moab Rim trail in our Gladiator! We've had our friend Justin from JKU World along in case we needed a tug along the way.

The Gladiator is long and low, as you will see but still very capable on the challenging Moab Rim trail. It's currently setup with a simple, affordable suspension with a Teraflex 1.5" leveling kit, Falcon 2.1 shocks, American Adventure Labs High Line fenders and their high clearance inner fenders. The wheels are AEV Salta's with BFGoodrich KM3 tires. The front bumper is an Artec Nighthawk with a Warn Zeon 10S just in case we need to winch the Gladiator out of trouble!

How did the brakes do on the way down? I have a geocache ammo can half-way up Moab Rim. I hope you didn't run it over! :)

No issues, I was usually in 1st or 2nd gear coming down, letting the gearing keep the speed under control. But I had no issues when I took my '48 CJ2a up and down last year. ;)

I didn't see any ammo cans, but probably drove right next to it.

Thanks Dan! Spring is great in Moab, early in the year can be excellent or cold, so just go prepared.

Hopefully I can find a few to go with. Looking forward to your next adventure photos!
