At least they didn't officially name them Scrambler (would make trips to the LPS even more complicated than it already is). Kind of feel bad for owners of classic Gladiators (but at least they can be referred to as J series).

Every time I see one of these from the side I feel it is missing a roll bar.
I'm also wondering if in 30+ years people will be searching for the Gladiator the same as we are with the Scrambler. :shrug:

Want ad you won't see in 2050:

Anyone have one of those angry face grill covers hidden away somewhere? Looking for one for my project Gladiator.

Congrats - sure is sharp looking!

Any mods plans for it? There sure are a lot of bed racks already available. This is the JCR full bed rack:

The only thing I plan on doing to mine, which I ordered today: a rubber bed mat, DeeZee part#87026

I did not special order mine, I bought it as it came on the dealer's lot. Mine came with the Jeep/Mopar rear bed hard tonneau cover, no bed liner. I like the hard tonneau, it will keep the bed clean when not in use. I hate bed liner, so happy about that. But, I wanted something to protect the bed floor. On my Scramblers, since original bed mats are hard to find/expensive, I have just been using 18 wheeler mud flaps as bed mats. Works perfect. Protects the bed when needed, easily removable when not in use/for cleaning/to allow floor to dry out.

The bed mat for the Gladiator cost $95 shipped. I think my three mud flaps cost a hair less LOL.

The funny thing is, I brought my Gladiator home last Tuesday. I might have driven it 30 miles since then. Since the weather has been so nice, I have been driving my CJ-7 and my two Scramblers :crazy:

I will most definitely NOT be putting "angry grill cover" or "Scrambler/Honcho" decals on my Gladiator. My Gladiator will stay stock, daily driver, just like my LJ, so it would be a boring build thread LOL.
