With the half door/ full door option, dang if these things aren't my dream car.

I'm hearing from my dealer that 2022 ordering will be available in October.
Many dealers have said different dates, nothing seems official. Nor is there a list of what, if any, updates for the 2022 Gladiator yet.

This is why Ram need a true midsize truck that can compete with BOF Tacoma, Ranger and Canyon/Colorado.
I agree.

While I would be fine with the Gladiator, I don't need all that it can provide nor the lack of gas mileage. I want a small truck that can tow 6,000+ lbs. I don't want a full-size truck. I really want a new Dakota Crew Cab.

Jeep Gladiator4,000 - 7,650 lbs
Chevy Canyon/Colorado3,500 - 7,700 lbs
Ford Ranger3,500 lbs.
Toyota Tacoma3,500 - 6,800 lbs

Would the brain-trust in Auburn Hills allow Ram to compete with Jeep in the midsize pickup segment?

Who knows?

So far, I am not impressed by the decisions coming from this crew.

It is obvious that they serve different markets. That's why they have the TRX models, off-road but not "off-road".

A Dakota TRX (or Rampage TRX) doesn't have to have a removable everything like the Gladiator and a million levels of traction control.The Rampage TRX™ could go Ford's route and put in a capable 4 cylinder with turbos, but somehow more towing capability. Maybe a Rampage TRXe™ could be the one with hybrid engine and 7,000 lbs of towing.

But, like you said, there haven't been a lot smart decisions coming from owners lately.
