Just purchased Spartacus - my new 2020 Gladiator Rubicon hardtop in black. Didn’t really plan on buying anything and even had parts on order for Betty White -my old 2013 JKU but made the mistake of test driving at Adams Jeep of Maryland and was instantly hooked. No real plans yet but it will be mildly build for work and play. Here’s the key stats: 3.6 Pentastar, 6speed manual, LED Lighting, Large Uconnect touch screen and Alpine stereo, Fox shocks, spray in bed-liner, hard top and all the standard Rubicon hoodies - electronic sway bar disconnects, lockers, front and rear, 33” Wild Peak tires.

Seems like armor/protection and a steel front bumper will be first. Stand by.

Thanks!! Need to really think through how we will use this to build it right. Towed a 4wheeler and a duck blind on day 1. Gonna keep mostly stock for a bit until I figure out a plan.

Stock is good. These (Rubicons) are capable vehicles even without a lift. I drove mine for 4 years with a lift (2.5") amd learned a lot. Get that winch tho if you're wheeling.

Yeah - thinking bumper, rock rails and winch will be my first mods.

I meant to say, "I drove mine 3 years WITHOUT a lift. Then Just last year installed the 2.5 " lift.

Nice!

How many Gladiators do you think we'll see named Spartacus?

I suspect quite a few. Kids came up with the name at the breakfast table. I also suspect Maximus or the more complete Maximus Decimus Meridius, and Russel (Crowe) will be popular names for the Gladiator.

list looks good, and look forward to hearing some exhaust notes on that Borla. I swear so far that I've seen, Black and Orange are the colors to have in the Gladiator

Grab handles and hitch plug too. Had to lift the front hard top to get to the bolt for the front handles.
