Saw 1 today with 2 tone blue "Scrambler" like stripes but no "Scrambler" on the hood. It looked decent.

Saw this at Willys Jeep Picnic in the Jeep parking area. Had a modified CJ8 rollbar. I have a feeling it belongs to a forum member here who will be at the Nationals.

I mentioned to my wife not too long ago that towing our ~2,500 lb camper through the mountains with my stick JK wasn't very fun and she said something along the lines of "maybe you could look at the truck". 4ish months later...

That's just logic right there. A wise spouse you have. She's a beauty.👍
Indeed, took all I had to contain my reaction, and thanks! I figure I can still hit a lot of the trails we usually do in CO minus the tougher rock crawling stuff that I honestly don't do much anymore anyways, pull our camper through the mountains a lot easier, and be a lot more useful in lumber and metal yard runs for hobby projects.

Exactly. I know some disagree, but I think Jeep will sell a lot more Gladiators comparatively than the Scrambler.

I agree. And thank God they still offer them in manual. Sadly, they only sell 3% with the stick in the US (although nearly 80% sold are stick in Australia) so i wonder for how long they'll keep offering stick in America.

Ford really dropped the ball with bronco in my opinion. That can only help Jeep. When i finally saw the bronco in person i cancelled my reservation and lost my $100.

Gotta be a tough Gladiator! A small trailer might be better for off road, but on a smooth highway I can see that working.

I think he needs a bigger vehicle. What are those tubes on the sides, at the bottom of the doors? Hold water maybe?

Look to be set up for overlanding but appears to have less ground clearance than a stock one. And people have called Scramblers "tail draggers"😁
