I'm getting custom 3m Vinyl made for the hood. It's going to be one of these; likely leaning toward the BLACK Spartan helmet:

What size Pull Pal did you end up going with? I'd much rather their lighter dimpled spade, but it only goes up to the RW11000, which they claim is good for mid-size trucks up to 7000 gvw. The Rubicon is 6250lbs gvw, but once you add a rack, rock sliders, a metal bumper, a winch, gear for the trip, bigger tires... I'm worried I'll be kissing the upper limit of what that model claims to support

I went with the 11000. So far, its pulled my fully loaded JT out of deep snow 3x and the first time, I had a fully loaded F350 attached to the rear of my Jeep via a Kinetic tow strap.. pulled us both out without an issue and no damage to the Pull-Pal.

~11,000 miles into the Red Gladiator and so far, so good. Just completed over 200 miles of offroad in the Moab area and finally made contact with the rear receiver hitch on some super steep drops.

About to change out the FOX2.0 shocks for either Falcon SP2's or 3.3's. Likely also going to get some Richochet skid plates to protect the under carriage. By summer, I'll do axle/lockers work and add the electronic disconnect sway-bar using the Superchips tuner as the "buttons"..As I was one of the first in Utah with a Gladiator, I was able to snag Utah custom plates: GLADI8TR.. after years and several vehicles sporting the BRTFRCE tags..(still on my Ram 3500 Dually).

So, an update.

JT is in the shop for upgraded axles, re-gearing to 4.88, lockers (front & rear) and replacement of the FOX 2.0 shocks with Falcon SP2 3.3 shocks on all four corners!

I bought Rubicon axles, so the Electronic Locking diffs that come on a Rubicon. My JT is a Sport-S, so just updating it to be more capable. Likely could have been less expensive to just trade it in for a Rubicon, but I already have a fair amount of $ invested in this JT, so..
