Since you've had both the Wrangler and Gladiator, which did you find fit you best? I'm wondering if I should be thinking about a Gladiator. :)
i'm interested to know too. keep my 2 door jl and pick up a jt, if the price it right.

OK, this question probably best doesn't belong here but...

how do Gladiator Rubicon owners with the optional front camera--if at all--also fit a key based hood lock?

We liked the JT, same options as JL just with some extras: space, tow capability and ride. Once we sold our small camper, which is why we originally switched from my 2018 JLUR, the benefits of the JLU just won out; way shorter, tossable, easy top removal(especially since I held onto our top lift pro) and of course...the color. Sarge Green was always one of the top colors I’ve really liked. Now if Anvil color comes back, I’m in trouble.

I will say, I’m going to miss the Rockstar treatment we’ve gotten over the year we’ve had the JT...even now, people still ask/comment about it.

The Sarge Green is awesome. Kinda wish they had it back when I got mine.

congrats. i love the sarge green but dont like the red accents on the green. ive been thinking about getting one later this year or next. id get rid of the green and just do black. hopefully jeep doesnt keep doing the red accent/outline forever. hopefully they change it up.

there will be blue outlines for PHEV and potentially orange outlines if Wrangler gets a Mojave version.

go over to the gladiator forum. that is your best bet for an answer. i'm guessing you can only have one or the other. the only hood lock you can do if you have the front camera would be the side hood lock.
