Love the stance on that Jeep. Typically don't like the Gladiator's aesthetic, but that one pulls it off.

Do you take it out wheeling or is it a town buggy? Either way, they're both awesome.
I appreciate it. It sees some wheeling but more of a town buggy.

One of those looks sleek, agile, and fast, the other looks like a clumsy relic from a bygone age.

Oh, it has an orange hue when you get the sunlight juuuuuuuuust right. This is not a trick of the camera to see the difference in color on the trunk lid and rear bumper (passenger side specifically), that's how Race Red can appear at times. It's not very frequent.

And the Badlands badging, which IMO really brings the orange undertones to a noticeable surface. And I actually get a bit of that with the Rapid Red too on the Badlands trim and it is nice.
*plain ol crayon melt, weird blue 51 for me😉

The Gladiator NEEDS 35's minimum to look good. I hated it when I first saw it but once I saw a few with 35's and 37's I was impressed.

Found a Race Red Wildtrak and got my Jeep up next to it lookin’ pretty.
Truth be told, before I heard the Bronco was being resurrected, and how, I had my heart set on a Gladiator in just this Punkin’ Orange. It’s a great looking rig, and I know the Gladiator is a “love it or hate it” kind of Jeep.

....I am, however, absolutely stoked to see my Race Red Big Bend 2 door. 🤗. Love seeing the side by side. Thanks for sharing!

Two months with a Gladiator confirmed my dislike for the Jeep . . . had exactly 1800 miles, rode like a chuck wagon, handed horribly (death wobble is a real thing) and with a 62k pricetag it's got to be one of the poorest investments a person can make (in my opinion!) . . . so happy for the Bronco and IFS!

Nice Gladiator, amd thanks for sharing the pics. Gives a good perspective - and would have been a better comparison if you were on 35s, but still good to see.
