Not sure if this has been discussed here yet(probably has), but I just can't get behind this. The stripes sweet through back, but please leave the Scrambler off the hood. It's not a Scrambler, and never will be. I get it, to each their own, but it a big no from me.

Agreed! Retro stripes are kinda cool but it's a Gladiator not a Scrambler

I thought I'd want & like them when they came out but WAY too rich for my blood.
If I get another Jeep itll be a Comanche or an LJ

Just wait 30 years and a 2021 Gladiator will maybe be at a reasonable price. Finding gasoline at less than $20 a gallon might be the problem. Maybe a diesel can still be run on French fry oil.

In my opinion I really think they're reasonably priced. In 1998 I ordered my 99' TJ Sport and paid about $20k. If you factor inflation that's about $32,500 today. You can order a 21' Gladiator Sport with a couple options for about $35k. Imo, the Gladiator is a pretty good value.

Agreed, I got into mine for just over 43K, but its also a well optioned Rubi. Gotta love dealer credits, rebates or whatever ya wanna call em. Sticker price was 56K, Dealer had it marked down $6700, and gave me $6000 for my Super Duty.

I guess you young guys just don't remember things like a 69 mustang for less than 3 grand and pickups a lot cheaper. 30-60 K just sounds pretty rediculous to me. All those electronics and safety stuff makes them costly. :shrug: A lot of that stuff electronics i just don't want. You just can not by a plain vehicle anymore.

The funny thing is that 69 Mustang and late 60s pickup will cost you the same 30-60k today in excellent condition.
