    I don’t see it happening... but if it did, it would most likely be used by small SOF teams. Currently they’re using random local trucks like the Hilux. The perk of using local trucks is they can be left behind. If they buy into this, they gonna need an airstrip to pick them back up or external lift them out which logistically opens up a whole different can of worms.

    I don't think these will ever get used for the military. In my experience everything we use is half ton or bigger and is the classic stripped down work truck version. The gladiator just doesnt fit. And the roles it would fit is taken up by what was already mentioned of using local stuff like Hilux

    When I was in Iraq in ‘04, halfway through deployment they actually gave my squad armored hummers that were brand new, completely armored top to bottom, and had air conditioning. We got them from the Air Force lol. To this day I still laugh about how unprepared we were for that shit.

    Lol. I’m fairly convinced that they send Marines in with bare minimums to see if it’s even possible.... the scary part is that a lot of times the impossible becomes possible... Marines definitely know how to embrace the suck and bring a lot of humor to it.... until the Air Force rolls in with their air conditioning and Sunday football and shit. Lol

    On a related note. How the hell are they going to use a stripped down Chevy Colorado over a Jeep Gladiator?!

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.
