    Jeep Gladiator TRUCK..........I don't think so. It's a Jeep Scrambler with 4 doors and a longer bed. It IS nice, but don't be naming/selling it for something it isn't.

    That is an already too long 4 door Wrangler with a cobbed on bed. Should have stuck to the concept design..............

    Yea, you're right there. I've been lusting after one of these since high school. If I had more time, more skilz, and more room, I'd think seriously about building one up.

    It’s got a frame. And a bed. It’s a truck. Just like the Scrambler was a truck. 
    I OWNED a 1967 Jeep Gladiator truck. With a 327 c.i. 4 bbl. carb., 4 in the floor with Warne lockout hubs on the front. Don't shine me on about that....................Jeep CJ 4 door with a bed........ is anywhere near being a JEEP GLADIATOR  pickup truck! :D:D:D:D:D

    I love the Rubi version. How they got that tow rating is beyond me. It has the same motor the 2014 to now 4 door JKU's have. That motor is not that strong. Can't even see it with 5.38 gears. Should have came with a Hemi.

    I don't like having 4 doors, period; not on a truck, not on a jeep, not on a car...

      My take is; only if they're in color, have a cast of thousands and are over 50 years old...

    I'll go with 2/3rds of this - trucks are supposed to have "single" cabs with 8 or even 9 foot beds. Proper Jeeps are two seaters so only need 2 doors (if any), but I want four doors on a car (unless its a two seater). Two doors on a car with a back seat is just dumb.

    And I won't, unless I'm in the front seat. I have a "thing" about being able to open a door and GET OUT of a vehicle when I need to.

    I thought this was going to be about gladiator movies. I got all excited because I like them. Then to find out it is about some silly car with a truck bed...

    I may be in trouble when my wife sees this.  She loves pickups and loves yellow Jeeps.....at least it isn't available in yellow.......yet.
