Test drove a Gladiator and a 2 door JL today.
What were your thoughts? I test drove a very clean low mileage JKR (note the lack of the U in that acronym) recently before I bought my '05 Sport, but it was too un-Jeep-like for me. It was a lot like driving my '19 4Runner. I missed the Jeepiness of the TJ and decided to stick with this platform.
The 2 door felt more "TJ" ish than the Gladiator. I drove a 2020 Rubi 2 Door manual and hated the clutch. The Gladiator felt like driving a F150 and had a numb feeling to it. My wife mentioned it, and I agreed. Gladiator is out, still up in air about a JLR or continue my search for the unicorn TJR.
I haven't been following the lack of a good heater core replacement problem. What are the best alternatives today?
