You've done a great job with the pictures. Talking about Smoky Mountains? I live in Waynesville, NC. Haven't purchased a Gladiator yet but most likely when the EcoDiesels come out.
Well I just revisited this post I made in July. I lied. I ordered a 3.6L Sting Gray Rubicon on 8/5/19. Currently in JB status. Starting to get a little excited.

Thanks! Assuming Fox factory rubicon shocks and not the Mopar lift ones. If so I may go that route.
Nope, factory max tow shocks with Evo shock extension brackets!

That's so exciting! Can't wait to see what you do with it. @Renegade has the Sting Gray. It looks really nice in person!

That is even better. I have a Sport with Max Tow so I am going to assume the same set up would work.

I don't see why it wouldn't. It's a cost-effective way to have a nice setup while more options hit the market!

Hey, y'all.

I've been a little MIA lately, but we're working hard behind the scenes. A LOT of exciting Gladiator stuff is in the works! :jk::like:

In the meantime, we've been working on creating a comprehensive guide to building an overlanding vehicle (as well as updating our blog). If you have a nice overland build and/or knowledge that you want to share with others in the community, you can submit to the ebook for free here: smoverland.com/ebook-submission.

The blog is smoverland.com/blog.

That's all for now -- stay tuned for Jeep updates!

I almost got the Amazon hilift Jack with 2 knockoff maxtrax for 140 but I looked into it and it wasn't a good deal. I did buy a onewheel however.

I returned the 2" Daystar lift kit and purchased the 4.5" EVO Enforcer Overland kit, 2.0 Fox shocks, Steer Smarts steering, Metalcloak rear trackbar and some Quadratec black 8 hole alloys 17x9". My goal is to run 38" Patagonias. For now, I'm completely stock until I order the rear upper CAs.

Did your frontend sag at all with the new bumper? How does your truck run with the tent over the rear axle? Did it smooth the ride out? I bought a Smittybilt XRC2 for $200 and I'm dying to install everything. Problem is, my 10 year anniversary is in 4 weeks.lol
