FYI, you can now head down to the dealership and order. I tried this morning but some options werenít available like they were on the builder, so itíll have to wait until Monday. Orders wonít actually be captured until Monday (so Iím told) evening anyways. As of this morning there were only 4 color options and adaptive cruise control wasnít available, so hopefully by Monday itíll be straightened out.

I worked with several dealers Friday and two of them had quirks with ordering like you said. And two others said they won't be doing any actual ordering for a week because of it just to play it safe. One of my quotes forced inclusions that shouldn't have been listed and said when he actually tried to place an order for another customer that it wouldn't let him. Still nice to get some pricing quotes and one step closer to the prize :beer:

Yeah they werenít showing advanced cruise control as an option and only a handful of colors, at least for my build. Some dealers will have a few on the lots by Monday. One of them offered me one thatís basically what I want, but not at the price Iím getting from my local dealer. Iíd rather wait than pay sticker price. Iíve also heard the prices some of these dealers are putting on their JTís and itís pretty shitty what theyíre doing.

I talked to that guy and he offered an amazing deal but never got back to me. Not really sure it was enough savings to go to Idaho anyways. A local dealer supposedly has one scheduled for shipment around the 18th but it wasnít built exactly the way I wanted. Close, but didnít want the soft top. Ended up finding a dealer yesterday about 30 minutes away that went 2% below invoice, so I went ahead and placed the order. No telling how long it will take to actually get it though.

So I have been MIA for quite some time since I sold Rhino......I have been keeping my eye out for a Gladiator and our local one just got 2 Rubicons but one is already gone.

Question (or input): Rubicon or just a sport? I really do not want to spend an additional $10K-15K to just have the Rubi badge (even though it would be nice). Are the axles the same on all levels as that is really the biggest concern I have.....I can get 4:10s on the sport and I can add my own quick disconnect for the sway bar but the axles will be the driving factor for me and not sure what else is the difference between the Rubi and Sport.

Thanks,

Thanks,

The axles on ALL trim levels are the new Dana 44s. However, only the Rubicon has the extra WIDE 44 axles with a 4.10 ratio. But on the Sport or Sport S, like you said, you can select the MAX TOW PACKAGE and get the same exact WIDE axles with a 4.10 ratio. But ONLY the Rubicon comes with lockers, the Sport axles will not have lockers.

I am pretty sure the other big difference on the Rubicon is the transfer case is a different ratio.

I believe you are correct on the transfer case but according to EVO and their gladiator build, they like the sport transfer case! I could be totally wrong as well.......And not too concerned with the lockers as I can add those in down the road for less than $15K.

When we ordered ours, we ordered a Sport S with the max tow package for this reason. At some point we will re-gear it to 5.13 and when we do, Iíll add a locker in the rear. The transfer case isnít necessary either for what weíll be using it for.

I like your thinking.

Another reason to keep it simple around here, many trails are narrow with turns, etc. I just don't see the Gladiator being able to navigate those spots as well being it's a truck.

We built a trailer about 18 years ago and itís a work horse. Itís 10x5 dual axle and we welded a lumber rack on it so a fork lift can load it up... the rack is tall enough that long items clear the bed of the truck in dips or pulling into driveways... the 2 back bars are removable... and there is a ramp for loading atvís or motorcycles.

Here it is last week with a 22í 1000lb steel beam on it.

I think you could still tow a Wrangler with the Gladiator as long as the trailer is not more than 1500-2000 lbs

My JKU is on the verge of the towing capacity on its own, and most of the ones we build are very similar to it.

Honestly. It may be too small to justify buying. I still want one but itís tiny compared to a full size truck and I need to have a full size. I knew this all along but seeing it and letting it sink in bummed me out.

I donít think thereís any justification for the JT. Other than you want it. Thatís enough for me.

No shit. Never once in my life have I been willing to drop 40-50K on a vehicle I haven't even seen or test drove yet. I would imagine you're in the same boat.

Yup, Iíve only sat in a JL and JT. I did buy my first JK without seeing one in person first. It worked out.

I have second thoughts every day on the truck, but fuck it.

Dealership in town finally got one and I got to go check it out. Silver overland edition with a hard top. Nice to finally see it in person. $53k on the pricetag

What makes the towing capacity? The frame or the axle? If axle would it raise the towing capacity to put 60s under it? Since everyone is making new versions you could do a dually. Lol

Mine is exceeding 7k when loaded out. Itís enough that no trailer built is going to accommodate. I guess I can flat tow everything.

Brakes, frame, axles, powertrain, cooling, stability, etc. Even if you put beefier axles in with big brakes you'd be up against the cooling wall. There just isn't much space in front for cooling. I mean could you tow more than rating and be ok, probably if flat. Can you do anything to legally raise the limit, no. Get in a crash overloaded and good luck. Plus the weight of the Gladiator relative to your load would be very sketchy. I tow with my ram often near it's maximum and it does fine but you have to remember you are towing at the limit and pay attention :-)

Exactly. This one time, at Marine camp...

We were flat towing a heavy H1 with a lighter H1 out of bad situation in Ramadi Iraq. Tried to turn a corner and the bad situation got much worse due to the weight of the towed H1. Situation was resolved without any real damage but I learned a valuable lesson that day. Donít fuck with physics.

Confirm with your local dealer, but I'm just passing along what I was just told by mine: Gator, Punkín, and Sting-Gray are now listed as available in the ordering system.
