Well said. Where I live in Northern Michigan I ride the trails at least a couple of times each week. I have yet to see a Gladiator off-road except at Silver Lake Sand Dunes and on the gravel fire roads in the Upper Peninsula.For desert and dune stuff, I actually still prefer a shorter wheel base. Dunes are often quite steep at the peak and it can be easy to get hung up on them -or get caught in a dip or "witches eye". Also, a lot of the funnest hilly riverbank trails I have been on have a lot of tight and winding turns that are incredibly fun in smaller vehicles like a CJ5... I can imagine taking a 2 door Bronco through a lot of them. I know I'll try at some point when I drive down to Yuma to see family. I'd never chance a Gladiator through them. I will still be able to go fast on open desert trails, but also enjoy steep dunes, narrow canyons and windy, hilly riverbank trails more. Now that I live in the Pacific Northwest, I have to drive a ways to enjoy those kinds of things. But I have found many tight trails through trees and mountain trails that I will be using the heck out of trail turn assist on. Sometimes its about possibilities. That's why I like wheelers that are compact as possible with good geometry.
