Ok...I just watched a you tube clip of Tony from Dynatrac cutting up a brand new Gladiator Frame to shorten the wheelbase to 118Ē-120Ē to make a two door truck...and they were dropping in a Hellcat Hemi into it...

Holy Shit Batman...

I might be alone in this but Iím not a fan. The V8 is cool but I feel like they shouldíve done something different with the body.

Who would cut a 4 door Jeep down to a 2 door and then put a Hellcat motor in it? Some people these days....

I feel that. If you wanted to make a 2 door truck, why not do it the way people did on the JKís and make it out of a 4 door wrangler?

Not to say it isnít badass tho...

I believe the idea was to keep the full bed, but shorten the wheelbase to improve the break over angle...and also go like a bat out of hell...

I get that but after wheeling with the EVO build this weekend, I donít look at this and get nearly as excited. From a shop owners perspective I look at the practicality of the build and what customers could do with their Jeep. Maybe thatís what Iím having a hard time with. A JK8 with a Hemi would be more feasible than this. Donít get me wrong Iím sure itíll be bad ass, I just think they missed an opportunity. I can imagine what itíll look like when itís over and that doesnít really inspire me to buy a set of Dynatrac axles.

Yes, I'm still feeling deprived. :grayno:

Iím with you on this. It might be a cool specialty rig but in the end itís just specialty. EVOís new build seems the most practical. That and drop a Hell Cat motor in it and it would be pretty bad ass.

Iím with you on this. I get the V8 but, if you look at the list of suppliers, I have a feeling the ultimate result will really defeat the purpose of the Gladiator (at least for me).
