I tell you, the more I see of Gladiator the more I want one. Because I’m not in the market right this minute for one, I can waffle back and forth all I want...considering other vehicle options. But at the end of the day, nothing else will be a Gladiator. I won’t be able to take the top off of anything else...except for maybe if they make a truck version of Bronco...15 years from now. Nothing else has the endless customization ability as a Wrangler/Gladiator. When I talk with my wife about getting something else as a family vehicle...Durango, Pacifica, Telluride, Acadia, etc...she always reminds me that we’ve always been a Jeep family. She wants to see the 3-row Grand Cherokee-ish vehicle before we make a final decision. And, she wants me to get a Gladiator. She says she’d like to drive it from time to time (I’m thinking that’s doubtful, but she’s playing the part for me). And she tells me it has to have “big tires”. They won’t have to work hard to get my $$, and now that I’ve found a good independent mechanic, I can F-U to the service department if they pisssssssssss me off...assuming it’s no longer under warranty. It always comes back to Jeep. Life’s too short to not get what you truly want, as long as you can reasonably afford it. I can see why others might choose another vehicle, but that really won’t work for me. I can threaten, but I know it’s an empty threat.
