Is it the diesel? That should do pretty well towing.My oldest bought one while out in Seattle. Traded in the TJ. He has the Rubicon. Made the cross country trip hauling a 5x8 panel trailer, loaded to the hilt. Handled nicely. Gas mileage, which we all know and don’t care about with Jeeps, wasn’t great. You could see that tach revving up while traveling uphill. We didn’t have a single complaint about what could’ve been done on improvements.
His came with the hard tonneau cover which he liked so he can keep his dive gear in the bed, secured. His first purchase will probably be the Mopar lift, coilovers and 35’s.
Oil change was a breeze, except we thought the oil would come out like my middle aged low stream piss, but it came out like an 18 year old’s. Made a mess in the driveway. He’s got about 10k on it now since May 1 when he bought it.
The on paper max specs might be better but the diesel gladiator destroys the gasser if you towing up any sort of grades. I towed with the 3.6 and could barely keep it above 40 going up the grades out I70 from Denver. Dangerous if you ask me. The diesel Gladiator will pull our 2500 lb camper up at 65 mph with power to spare (and about 10 more mpg). If you're looking to tow close to max with either you should probably get a Ram or similar.Gas is a much better towing Gladiator. Check the diesel specs. Not the diesel you’d expect
