A 2 door with a shorter wheelbase. Then I would get one a heartbeat.

That thing is the same size as a full size truck. Don't know why they say it a mid-size truck.

"Full size" pickups, today, are even longer with their super-crew cabs and 3XL beds.

I agree park next to an F350 or Duramax and a JT would feel pretty small.

Anybody else notice they didn’t latch the drivers side latch on the hood. My OCD wouldn’t even let me watch the video.

The 2 door looks better than the 4 door as a truck, but I can’t think of anything less practical on a daily basis than that.

Went to Silver Lake Jeep Fest this past weekend. Took a test ride, ride, not driving the Gladiator. Went on a closed off road course and was impressed. Never bottomed the suspension but hit the skid plate quite a few times. The factory driver was not easy on it. What a job going around the country taking people for rides around closed courses. The track was difficult enough to have bypasses around the real hard spots. The only ones we bypassed was the log pile and the rock pile. It was the Rubicon model, he said base price was 32,000 and this Rubicon was 62,000. Was cool, got a free jeep ball cap and a aluminum water bottle for taking a test ride.

After the last supposed fix of my JKUR's electrical problem and it reared it's ugly head again, I knew I just had to dump it. I was going to get a JLUR but the back is an inch narrower and an inch shallower so it would not fit my 2 Ruff - Tuff dog crates which killed that idea.

I grouse hunt in the northern woods all fall and that is all logging roads and non maintained 2 tracks. I had an Explorer Sport Trac before the JKUR and that just didn't cut it. Lots of places I could not go alone or at all.

The Sport Trac was a handy hunting vehicle otherwise but was kind of useless at home with the super short bed and low payload capacity.

The JT came out and for me it was as close to perfect a vehicle for me. I can understand that it's not a good fit for others.

Inside it's like night and day vs the JKUR which makes nice as a DD and for on the farm here when I don't really need the F-250 Diesel.

If I could afford it I would still have JK or JL for the true fun of it and for that matter I would probably like a built CJ-7 instead. Now those were fun Jeeps.

Except everytime someone mentions it, loads of people agree.

I'd buy a 2dr JT. I'd never buy the limosine length 4dr JT.
Only on the forums, which are not reflective of actual sales trends.

4-door Unlimiteds have accounted for 80% of Wrangler sales for several years now.

Jeep even dropped the 2-dr Sahara due to lack of demand.

Right, but that's not the JT. That's the JK and JL, which are inherantly different vehicles.

I see what you're saying, but we've all seen more people vocal in support of a "shorter" 2dr JT than any other truck.

Until Jeep releases one, and people have the opportunity to buy one... We'll never know for sure.

Hmmmm...maybe my JK? It’s about as practical as my wife’s C7 Stingray. Or the JCW Mini Copper Roadster she had before that.

The rear seat in my JK is useless but I didn’t buy it because it was practical. I’d trade the rear seat for a 6’ truck bed any day. That would make my JK at least 50% more practical.

Not arguing; just having fun stating my opinion.

I think I may have laughed a little too hard at this. Partly "funny uh-oh" and partly "funny ha-ha".

For what those things cost, they should come with a hemi. Damn. That would be pretty sweet plus trump the competition. Of course, knowing FCA they would have to price it at $70k to make anything on it while pre-calculating the costs of recalls and quality control issues that Jeep is becoming more know for than the legendary bad-assness of the past.

I got my oil changed last Friday at the dealership. While waiting, I noticed a Gladiator sport on the lot and was checking it out when a salesman offered me a drive. I said sure and we took it for a spin. I have to say it was pretty solid and drove quite well for the brief 15 min lap we took. The hard top was a little louder than I was expecting for some reason and to be honest it wasn't that exciting or thrilling IMO. I did not think the bed was too small for what it is though. I will admit that there is no doubt it fills a need for those who like Jeeps but need/want a bed. In stock form there was very little making me wish I had one and no way I would have one stock for sure. That's just me. If it had a 3.5" lift and 35s like my JKUR, I think it would be way more appealing however. My $.02 FWIW.
