As quick shot of a built up Gladiator racing tomorrow in the stock class of the Every Mans Challenge. Savy did the build in two weeks and I think itís running with a Dynatrac XD 60 up front. I donít have any more info than this.

Would really like to see other pics of this. I think the angle of it is killing it for me.

It looked like it handled the whoops nice because of the wheelbase. Canít say I really like the build but given the circumstances it is what it is. Excited to be able to order one for myself soon.

For me what looks ďoffĒ is it needs bigger tires. Could just be the camera though too.

Yeah it doesn't look right. The rear door just looks off and it looks like a Jeep fucked a Yamaha Rhino.

I think the wrap is playing tricks on the eyes. Odd graphics are throwing off the body lines. At least in the photo from this angle.

Shame it will probably not look as good after the race. All that overhang will make for a tough ride down Backdoor.

Stock class doesnít do backstories usually. They bypass that.

I think tire size relative to lift completely changes the look of this truck...for example, my Brute on 35's and 3" lift

320356

37's and 4" lift320357

and now on 40"s...

35s with that wheelbase is going to be horrible. I saw it run in qualifying today and they skipped the only rock section. :thinking:

Stock class doesnít run the rocks in qualifying. Same as every other stock car that ran today.

There is an interesting article about this truck on the Fourwheeler site, including pics of the interior, Dynatrac axles and suspension

I have to be honest and say it looked best on 37ís. Then again, I think most Jeeps do.

My primary goal going to 40's was to increase breakover & departure angle...with the limited trail time so far, it has been an improvement over 37's...I'll have a much better idea this EJS as I will be doing some of the same trails I did a couple years back when it was on 37's

Should have waited on the pickup.

Have to ask, if running 40's are guys swapping out axles?

Itís nearly a requirement if making the jump to 40ís. Some guys get away with it for a while but it comes with risks that will eventually catch up to you.

My plan is 40ís. I donít plan to wheel it though so Iíll leave stock axles. If itís a bad idea and I break shit Iíll put 37ís on.
