    • Sorry to hear about Freddy passing. Condolences. Both of our daughters worked their first jobs & later supervised in Council Bluffs, the oldest trained in Papillion & opened Council Bluffs helped open 2 stores in Omaha, our youngest helped open Charlotte, NC I don't know if that's your franchise group, but it was a good first job for them, & helped them go on to do well in other fields. Regards.

  • Sounds like the Gladiator isn't right for you, and I get that. My wife and I have a 2-door JK, a 4-door JK, and a Gladiator. I love my 2-door, but the Gladiator is a perfect addition to the family. I've never owned a truck before the Gladiator but I'm finding it really comes in handy. We never tow, so towing capacity isn't an issue for us. I have a ceiling winch with a harness I use to remove Jeep tops when I'm by myself, otherwise the wife helps with it. Off road capability is top notch on the truck. Yes it has a long wheelbase. We've taken the Gladiator through Black Bear Pass twice and the switchbacks were interesting. But we know going into it that it's longer and it's not much of an issue. As a side note, we LOVE Freddy's! We have one about 90 seconds from the house and bring home burgers about once a week.

  • So most of your complaints I am hearing is because you bought it and you were not the target market of the truck. You should stick to the full size trucks or got the Sport with the max towing option. So again you bought the wrong trim level also. Maybe spend a few more minutes researching what it is you are buying and if it fits the needs you are gonna use it.

  • Hey, hoovie big fan!! I must note that I have a gladiator rubicon and it's a dream to drive. if you ever drove a jk or CJ or any other jeep like the ones I own you would have a different mentality. this jeep is an offroad rig. not a BMW or 07 Maserati.

  • I had 2 '14 Jeeps, one heavily modified(JK) and one(JKU) fairly modified. The second one was just sitting. We bought property out in the country and wanted something to be able to tow. We decided to slim down the vehicles (plus BOTH had cracked thermostat housing, great job Jeep on plastic housings) and looked at the Gladiator, for about 1 min. After getting over the sticker shock then looked at the capabilities: 7k tow (2x the JKU), longer and wider than the JKs, same mpg, and then would have to put in another $15 like I did with the JK to get it on the same level (and at the same time 1/2 the upgrades weren't available yet. And with the $45k sticker price I looked and found a '18 Ram CTD for $2k more. The only thing I lost out on is the trail ability. Like he said, off road capability Ehhhh, towing ehhhh, price yeah no, mpg is abit better and with the offset of gas vs diesel just a lil bit on the downside of the fuel decision. But not he's too smart on the taking the roof off. With that fancy garage a simple $200 winch from HF takes care of that. I reuse mine when I took the JKs top off now to take the 5th wheel hitch in/out of the bed. Yeah Jeep wasn't too smart with the Gladiator, but there is a sucker born every min.

  • Many people buy an expensive car thinking it will be cheap to maintain & run. Then they sell it realizing they made a mistake . Seen it all before...... the wrong car for you.

  • They put a flatbed on a wrangler and called it a truck. What a waste of resources.

  • OK.. 1st.. you are SO out of touch with Jeep culture with your massive ego. 2nd, that wrangler you used in CO was probably a rental. Stick to what you know best... standard issue full sized boring GMCs or F150s that run your massive empire over asphalt just fine.

  • Who said the Gladiator had good towing capacity?? Chrysler didn't.. It feels like a luxury car vs a truck because it is. People like you expecting a tank, you bought a watered-down wrangler with a over sized base. Just like the JLs and some JKs. People purchase them an return them a year later because of ride, gas mileage, an the fact its not a rover. People are stupid and happy to waste their money. I'm happy to watch an be entertained by foolish jeep owners not understanding what a Jeep is. Just like the girl who sunk hers in mud an wonders why it's not working properly..

  • I love the idea of this truck. It ticks all the boxes for me, as I don't need a lot of the "truck" stuff other than a bed would be nice to have. However, Jeep thinks I'm made of money, because these are asking easily double what I would ever pay for any vehicle. No cool or fun truck is worth that kinda ridiculous price point. Do they realize I can buy an old F series AND a Focus ST for the amount of money they are asking?!

I'm a 6' 1" 240lb larger framed guy and the driver's seat/cockpit of this thing is very narrow and uncomfortable. My right knee digs against the 4x4 shifter. The entire interior is about as big as a compact car that's connected to a tiny bed that can't haul anything terribly substantial. I fell for the "cool factor" to haul my new bass boat...but I'm already counting down the days until this lease is over. UGH! I'm an idiot! :(

  • Why are you comparing a midsize truck to full size trucks? I know that price is a big factor, but trucks come with a lot of options. Honestly, the same can be said about full size trucks. If you are looking at a full size truck with a lot of extras, you can probably find a cheaper super duty that can tow more.
