Curious as to what you guys think as it’s pretty much the biggest competitor to the Taco now. I know we’re all biased here, but just as a truck, what do you think of it? I think the towing is impressive but the rear bumper seems to hang over a surprising amount considering the Jeep is usually good about approach angles. Personally, I like Jeeps as much as Tacos (Paige has a JKU) so I’m pretty stoked on the Gladiator.

I’m not sure if I like or not like. When I first saw it I was like WTF, but it’s starting to grow on me a bit. It looks so damn boxy.

I think it’s ugly and not ugly at the same time. I guess I’m confused but I think it will grow.

The fact that there isn't a gap between the back door and the rear wheel well makes it look odd.

It's cool on paper and I'm sure it will work out well for jeep. The aftermarket support will be amazing as the rest of the wranglers. I just couldnt spend money that I actually worked for on a Chrysler.

i mean i appreciate their attempt. I think as a general travel rig done up as an Overlander it would be great. but typical jeep style, I think it missed the mark. It has a very long wheel base. I do think it looks nice, but i dont think i would ever get one.
