Very nice! You prolly know already, change the stock antenna out with a rubber ducky.

Ok so the rear suspension is off the Ram or partially modeled from the ram. Front is wrangler with beefer parts for the over all weight - and a thicker frame rails stem to stern. If I'm reading it right.

Interesting.

Better question - do the rapid jacks make adapters to work with that? And are they going to offer the gladiator with that eco diesel that might be interesting.

I don't have the SUV adapter for the quick jacks but i may buy them.

The eco diesel Gladiator is supposed to be out later this year with like 450 foot pounds of torque.

The interesting thing is the diesel will have a lower tow rating than the gas engine with the Max Tow package; I was reading an article on it and it has to do with airflow/engine cooling -- because of the turbo intercooler it will be airflow constrained and not be able to tow as much. Ah, here's the article: The Engineering Behind the Jeep Gladiator's Tow Rating, and Why the Diesel Will Tow Less

Thanks Barry. I will look into that. Not a fan of stick antennas.

Not sure on jeeps, but on my X the oem radio antenna was just barey higher than the roof rack, to give me an alert on clearance or not.

I saw one on the road the other night and it made me sad they don't make a 2 door model that's smaller and called a Comanche. But I know 2 door trucks don't sell now.

So then I still think they should have named it a Comanche. I have to say I am warming up to the idea.

A two door with a bed would be pretty damn cool.

A buddy of mine had CJ-8 for 10 years. Still kicking himself for selling it.
