I love the JT....but I bought it as a toy, not a truck. Anyone who actually NEEDS a truck would be stupid to get a JT. A 1/2 tonne pickup from any of the big 3 would run circles around our JT as an actual truck.
Uhh my JT does awesome at being a truck. I have owned many a Ram and so far not disappointed. Not sure how to make a meme about it though, sorry

(OMG I want a cold beer)
I'm sure ready. STILL setting up wiring for a generator so next time we lose power, I won't be caught not ready. Running 2 dedicated lines from garage (NOT attached) to house, and making sure my welder wiring is adequate to back-feed through back into the house panel.
Tired of this project, I just want a BREAK!

Why do the front tires look to be about twice the size of the rear tires?

Better to PULL you through the mud! Same reason guys used to run different gear ratios front and rear.;)

It's a fact. The JT is an awesome vehicle or I wouldn't have bought it, but as a truck it's fairly useless. My 2015 F150 as a TRUCK is superior in every way. The anemic 3.6 and tiny box in the JT are fairly useless. Throw some bigger tires on and good luck towing anything up hill without a re-gear.
Anyway...as a toy the Gladiator is awesome, and looks better than 99% of the trucks on the road which is why I bought one.
The 4.10 gears in the Max Tow are great for towing.

Isn't it obvious? [Heaven help and forgive me for this]

He's gotta take a bunch of fat chicks to the cheesecake factory down at the mall. He met them outside the Lane Bryant while he was on his way to the flat brim hat store. They were super impressed with his totally bitchin' rig and fell under the spell of his raw animal sexuality and obvious taste in accessories.
How did they climb in?

Spacial distortion caused by too many warp engines being used in the area.

No idea, but I assure you they are both 35's. Never noticed that until now, but your right it looks that way. They look the same size in this picture with 1100lbs of payload in the bed of my sucky truck.

To be honest, I have worked on other people's Jeep's as a hobby through out the years. I was not expecting much. I wanted the form factor and expected I was going to have to put in some sweat equity to get exactly what I wanted. The suspension was the first project. Then I added some ponies, lastly I did some interior work.
