I have seen several roaming around the Texas hill country and even a lifted one with what looked like 37's. This is mostly due to all of the rock climbing off road parks around here like Cline Ranch and Hidden Falls.


Yesterday coming home from the deer camp I stopped by a FCA/Ford dealer to see if they had any Gladiators. They had 5 of them with 2 Rubicons and 3 Overlands. All 5 had a MSRP of ~ $50+k.


And spotted in Michigan. More in camo. What could they be [emoticon]

Those are all in Allen Park. I work in Auburn Hills. Ford does have some sweet stuff in the pipeline.

Gladiator:

- Should have been called Scrambler
- You want solid front axle, it's the only choice.
- You want removable top, it's the only choice.
- You want to run 35's pretty much stock, it's the only choice.

Come on Ford and Chevy, you've got the formula right there, AND the Bronco and Blazer DNA as well.

The "Baby Bronco" is an embarrassment, and hardly worthy of the name. The new Blazer? Another Chevy attempt to wh*re out what once was a great brand.

FCA is showing there is big market and margin in this category. Make it happen!

You forgot about the Jeep Compass and the Jeep Cherokee

Those are rolling embarrassments as well.

The compass is a barely disguised Fiat 500.

And the current Cherokee isn't worthy of a name with such a strong history...


You need me to rant a bit more? Or are we good?

If I were going to buy a smaller pickup the Rubicon version of the Gladiator would be my pick by a wide margin. They do seem awfully pricey but to be fair all vehicles seem awfully pricey to me these days.

Could not have said it better.
Jeep has NOT been Jeep for many, many years.
Look what they did to the Renegade!
Sure as hell wished I still had my 77 CJ5 and my 69 Jeepster Commando.

I wonder if some one will make a flat bed for the Gladiator? I could put my 570 rzr on it and flat tow it behind a motor home. Be just about perfect.

The RZR is 9' long so you cannot side load this vehicle. It would have to ramped up over the cab since a 9' deck behind a Gladiator cab would put CG too far rear of the axle.
