    Our new SxS

    So, we bought the 2020 Jeep Gladiator (Sport-S), not knowing the difference between SPORT-S, Rubicon and the other models.

    Upgrades thus far:

    3Inch Mopar Lift
    37 Inch tires + after market wheels
    Fox shocks
    Rock Slider electric steps
    Today: Quadratec Bumper + Smittybilt 12k Winch w/Wireless Remote

    Early next year will be front & rear lockers + electronic sway bar disconnect.

    After:



    Before:
    2020 Jeep Gladiator (2" Lift, 37" Tires, Falcon 3.3 Shocks, Lockers, Sliders)
    2018 Polaris Sportsman XP 1000 (Hunter Edition)
    2014 Polaris Sportsman XP 850 HO EFI EPS (Browning Edition)
    2009 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Laramie/Resistol DRW (~800HP/1400TQ)
    Yukon Charlies 930 Trail Series Snow Shoes
    5.11 Tactical Coyote Boots

    I can't see the pictures...just a little blue question mark.

    So you went in there not having researched the models? Looks like you're basically building a Rubicon...did you screw up or was the price too high for it?

    I'm kind of a truck nut and keep up on all the latest from the various manufacturers. People seem pretty happy with that truck.
    Suddenly my feet are feet of mud
    It all goes slo-mo
    I don't know why I am crying
    Am I suspended in Gaffa?

    @BruteForce looks like a login is required to view those photos, most likely on a members only location

    Yes, the wife has been driving a 2001 Toyota 4Runner and on a whim, we went car shopping. We saw the Gladiator, took it for a test drive, worked in the upgrades and took it off the lot with 11 miles on the ODO. 2 months later, we're at 4500 miles of offroading on the ODO.

    Very nice! That truck looks more sizable than I thought it would be. Your wife is spoiled, man.

    Pretty tough to beat a 3rd gen 4runner though. They are tough, very capable and last forever. I think we have 5 of them in our family for mile offroad use and hunting

    Agreed. The 2001 4Runner still looks and runs like brand new. It has a paltry 120k miles on it, whereas my Ram 3500 (9 years older) has 223k miles on it. We kept the 4Runner and the wife still likes to drive it. I tried (and failed) to convince her to let me chop it and situate it for rock crawling..

    I was hoping we'd hit snow last weekend and the canyon between Vernon and Delta didn't disappoint (for the most part), but the drive through Eureka toward Little Moab was the muddiest mess I've ever encountered. 6 car washes into it and I'm still dripping mud everywhere, but at least my Rock Slide Engineering steps function again..Name:  83447997_10221875449859069_805153686207594496_o.jpg

    Just an update on our SxS.. since purchase, the wife made me take ownership and we promptly went out and bought her a new Wrangler Unlimited, 2" Mopar Lift, Fox 2.0 shocks, 37" tires and some awesome rock sliders. It will be a perm. mall-crawler. My Gladiator has been in the shop all week getting Rubicon D44 axles w/lockers and Falcon SP2 3.3 Shocks to replace the Fox 2.0 shocks. Can't wait to test out the lockers this weekend!
