    If that is how the new gladiator would look. I actually dig it. Looks pretty clean. Although, I would hope that if this isnít the final rendering, that the rear doors would be a more full size style. More than that of what the reg cut off wrangler doors have.

    Hoping itís a weird photoshop or bad angels. But those rear fenders are driving my ocd off the charts. To have them come forward of the bed looks retarded. But I also canít think of how they would look proportional if they didnít.

    I found this image of the actual sheet metal. I would think for structure and using existing rear door that that would be the final design for those rear doors.

    I agree, it looks half assed.

    AEV did a better with the brute leaving better clearance there.

    That is consistent with the weird fender hang.

    On the plus side, since the cab forms part of the rear wheel well, maybe the overall length and wheelbase won't be as long as I had originally expected.

    It's also interesting that the gas tank filler is in front of the rear wheel, not behind (like with the AEV Brute).

    Gladiator Truck?

    Agreed. The brutes have a long center span. That would shorten up the break over angle.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
