    Gladiator

    After almost a year and 10,000 miles, I finally decided to lift it...on June 29, the one year anniversary of selling the Scrambler. Mopar 2" lift installed by dealer and 35" Falkens:

    Gladiator

    The back part of the hardtop should not be that hard to remove...just bulky. I will never have back seat drivers since I have no back seat...so I will not have any reason to remove the rear portion of the hardtop. If I remember right, there are just some bolts around the bottom (similar to the...

    Nice Gladiator! The reason you do not have the red dash is because you have tan seats. That is one of the few ways to eliminate the red dash. I initially thought I did not want a red dash, but am now glad that is what I have. It adds a splash of color that my girlfriend really likes. I...

    JP Magazine Done

    I had digital subscriptions through Amazon Kindle to 6 of the magazines they discontinued. Most renewed the month prior to all of those magazines being discontinued. I started receiving 3 digital copies of MotorTrend and 3 of FourWheeler. There was a notation on the cover of each specifying...

    Gladiator

    That's not entirely true. Unless you add the tow package to the Rubicon, it comes with a Class II rather than IV receiver hitch, standard duty vs heavy-duty engine cooling, 220-Amp vs 240-amp alternator and no trailer hitch zoom on the camera. Standard items on the Rubicon that would come with...

    Jp magazine cancelled

    Wouldn't be surprised if I'm older (approaching 73). I resisted digital editions for a long time. But after picking up my 12.9" iPad with a screen that is almost as big as a printed mag, I now prefer digital editions. The photo quality is better than print and you can zoom in on them. It...

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Photo of raw turkeys (and other neighbors) in the yard 10 days before Thanksgiving: I've had 15 inches of snow since then so the herd of 17 wild turkeys has been hangin' in my trees crapping on the roof. They're pushing their luck...especially considering the time of year. But I ended up...

    I'm not sure it warrants a build thread as I haven't done much building. But here are photos of the seatless rear and floor. I thought I had posted them already, but maybe not.

    Gladiator

    Well...I'm lovin' mine. It's a Jeep. And it's a pickup. Kinda like another vehicle I used to have. There's plenty of room inside the cab (after I removed the back seat and built a flat floor) to haul all my photo and SAR gear even with the fridge pretty much permanently mounted. I always...

    My order was delayed for more than a month because of the steel bumper shortage. There appears to have been a silver lining on that cloud. The recall is for Gladiators built through June 25. Mine was not built until July even though I ordered it in April (with the grease option).

    Gladiator

    I've "scramblerized" my Gladiator. It's now a 2-seater. I removed the back seats and built a flat floor with storage underneath. There certainly is a lot more room back there than behind the seats in my Scrambler. My 63-qt ARB fridge, which was powered by an ArkPak with a 100Ah LiFePO4...

    Gladiator

    People should stop trying to compare the Gladiator with a full-size truck, even if it can cost as much as one. So does a BMW. If you need a "real" truck that can tow 12,000+ pounds and haul a small subdivision, buy a full-size truck. The Gladiator is, in fact, meant to compete with the...

    Gladiator

    And now it is sitting in a yard in Toledo waiting to be shipped. My dealer tells me it is scheduled to be in Albuquerque on Aug. 5 and then needs to travel to the dealer in Cortez, CO., a little over 100 miles from Moab. I expect to pick it up around Aug. 9-10 about 15 weeks from the order...

    woohoo...mine has finally been built and I have a Build Sheet...almost 12 weeks after I placed the order. It was in Trim yesterday. I've been Jeepless for 18 days now.

    ok...mine wasn't on there. It is scheduled to finally hit the assembly line Sunday, I hope to be driving it in a month or so.

    How not to cross a river in a CJ-8 (or anything)

    Respectfully, that is just not true. Or perhaps I should say it depends on the river. On a river such as the Dolores at the current flow, it is not hard to ferry across and not be that far downstream when you reach the other side. Yes, it takes effort and you have to know the proper angle to...
