Nice JT I like what you've done.

Congrats and thanks for being the first JT build to post here. This forum is, unfortunately, dead in regard to the JT.

I like how the RTT is mounted below the JT's roofline - nice!

So the JT did amazing this past week.
The 38's crawled over everything and the prototype system did amazing.

The wheeling we did was of the moderate type and no issues.

We are now heading to Moab for more testing!



Hope to see more builds in here soon!!!

So after being on the road and trail for the last 2+ weeks, we can say we are REALLY, REALLY impressed by the Gladiator and our prototype system.

Solid platform, that is for sure.

Back to R&D to button things up.

Love the build so far! I just picked up my JTR last week and cant wait to get it lifted.

The 37's will be here this week for it. Planning to wheel with those until more lifts are on the market with some of the kinks worked out.

How is that RTT mounted to the bed?? I love how low and clean it looks on there.
