    Just a couple observations on the one interior image (see below). Looks like the rear seats are lockable to not allow access to behind or under the seats (I assume) with lock mechanisms at the top corners of the seats (per initial post). Also a subwoofer in the middle with a storage pocket on the drivers side and a tool kit (possibly?) on the passenger side. Also some lighting in the trim panels to help illuminate behind the seats! Under seat lockable storage appears to have a carry handle so it is most definitely removable. Very cool little features! jeep-gladiator-pickup-07-jpg.jpg

    Nice catch on the behind the seat features! Subwoofer enclosure reminds me of the old Sony Xplod design. Would be really cool if that was a tool kit on the passenger side! I'm hoping at the reveal they go over every spect of the interior as well.

    I think I would have preferred a straight carry-over of the JLU rear seats- they fold down with the seat cushion dropping into the foot well- this makes the area a lower, larger shelf. Not a deal breaker though.

    Just noticed the underseat cargo box has a carry handle. Removable pelican type case?

    Ooh, that might make it acceptable. I was thinking it need to be replaced by a stronger steel box.

    Hopefully it will reveal how much this is going to hurt my wallet.

    BTW I really like the reviewers spin on Why Gladiator? I want it to be a truck that's a Jeep, not just a Wrangler with a bed.

    Looks like something I want sitting in my driveway come April as long as the price won't make me work 5 years past retirement.

    Some interesting point to note from the press release:

    Diesel info:

    Bed info .... note the external power!

    You can see the power port in the modified Gladiator pics, tucked in behind the Decked boxes. Looks like may take some fiddling to use it if you add the Decked.

    I have no plans for the Decked, as the are cool but just take up too much bed space IMO. Would rather have a roll top tonneau cover, and then be able to put a ARB fridge back there.
