    My wife and I are definitely considering a Jeep Gladiator. Anyone else in the same boat?

    I plan on trading in my 2019 Punk'n JLUR for a Gobe Gladiator.

    Nothing new for me though. I tend to go through 1-2 jeeps a year. Last year I did 3 which is a record for me lol.

    I doubt there will be much of a cycle to the JT from the JL crowd until you get into the normal tradein thought process. It seems like a waste to me to trade in a 1 year old JL for the same thing with a bed attachment.

    But I’m only me. I saw people trading in JLs after a few months just to get different options. So what do I know?

    My wife won't let me, but if financially able to support it in 5-10 years, I'll buy one used as a second vehicle.

    I just can’t make myself like it, but I was the same way when 4 door Jeep came out too, but now I wouldn’t own anything else so who knows maybe they’ll grow on me over time. But for now I’m good with what I got......:jk:....:)

    I have thought about it (for the extra towing) but my wife does NOT like the looks. Oh well

    Other than getting one just to be different and to say you have one, what are(or would) you be using it for?

    ...just curious

    As cool as the Gladiator is, it's in a completely different market segment. If someone needed a pickup truck with a bed, why in the world would they buy a JL instead?
