My garage is going to be all Jeep too... and all 4x4... TJ 4L Straight 6, Golden Eagle, my Wife’s 4WD Cherokee 3.2L V6 Latitude, and of course, my long awaited JT 3.6L V6 Rubi LE! (Pic coming when it finally gets here!) ❤;{

Gladiator (Launch Edition, preorder)
Finally made it over to this forum from the first VIN one. Looking forward to continuing the conversation. My GCM JT is my favorite vehicle, taking top honors from the wife’s BMW X7. Everyone who rides in hers loves it, but all that see mine stop and stare.

Curious as to who else has gotten stopped and asked about their Gladiators. So far I’ve had 3 (not bad since I’ve be away on and off).

First was Sunday after I picked up (9/22, day 3). At the bank grabbing some cash and got stopped to ask about the Gladiator. Guy seemed really knowledgeable and seemed like he might follow up with the dealer I used.

Two and three were yesterday. First was a lady (mid 60s) that stopped us at the store to chat. Her husband had been checking them out and she wanted more info. Seems like he is really interested, but needs a manual. Then the gas attendant (in NJ they don’t trust us to pump our own) was chatting saying he’s seen a few, the GCM was really the best color and the Gladiator blows away the new Ranger.

Not that outside validation is needed to enjoy your Gladiator, but it sure is fun to chat about!

Welcome @Jprepp...
Glad to see all the old gang slowly finding their way over to GCM-JTLE-OMC! ;{

Couldn’t find my tie down straps so used my dogs leashes. It worked thanks to the adjustable cleats!

I love mine! I have a Mopar 2” lift that’s not installed yet. I’m going with 37” Cooper STT Pro’s, XD 137 17” wheels, and 4.88 gears. The only problem I have been having is my wife keeps stealing it.

1500 miles over the last week, including 200 off road.

Played around a bit at Trona Pinnacles on the drive home. Pulled the drone out. Easy off roading, but cool backdrop.


Love this truck! Zeus does too.

Works great. Bought it for my wife's Volvo XC60, and he usually just chills in the back seat. With the top off, we buckled him in for the first time. He's never really been a "stick his head out the window" dog, but he was loving the wind blowing in his face and was standing up most of the ride.

Nice drone video of your JT at Trona Pinnacles. Did you go to Death Valley too?
