    Gladiator rubicon launch edition

    When I test drove it I noticed that it was taking alot of corrections to keep it my lane. I just thought I'm just not comfortable driving it and it was probably me. I have a little over 400 miles on it. I'm still floating all over my lane. Has anyone else had this issue.

    You're most likely still have way too much air in your tires from the factory. Let it down to about 30 or as low as your tpms will allow and that will help.

    BTW, congrats to you on your new Gladiator. Still waiting on ours.

    I just tried 30psi yesterday and she gave me a message to air up to 37psi. I've had no issues with floating like you describe. I even just towed a heavy trailer from Salt Lake to Bozeman Mt with no issues.

    I dropped the air to 33psi and turned off the steering assist. It is better. Thanks

    Yep, first thing I did when I pulled out of the Jeep dealer after picking up Remi was let a bunch of air out of the tires. Rides perfect now.

    I noticed on the test drive it rode tougher but I had a feeling that is what it was.

    Where do you turn off the steering assist ? We have noticed the steering is very sensitive also. Thought it was just the electric power steering and not used to it.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve 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.
