    Gladiator mods vs JL mods

    Does anyone (paging Scott) know if certain JL mods will be the same for the Gladiators? Like front bumpers, fenders, steering, suspension, etc?

    I would imagine itís the same frame just with an extension in it. Canít see it being completely different.

    Yeah, I'm just wondering if the width is different. If not, it would be nice to know if bumpers or interior cages etc will be the same. Trying to plan accordingly. Just got the pre-underwriters (wife) involved in the build.

    From what I have seen in person, the front end is basically a JL. Things like front bumper should be exactly the same and so should suspension components. The rear is where things are definitely different. If I recall, the rear bumper is supposed to come in steel standard (at least on the Rubicon) and it's not the same as the JL.

    I would guess itís the same like Adam said, itís just different on the back end.

    That's right. I do remember one of the Jeep employees saying that in the video; wider openings for air flow and cooling. Wonder if it's the whole grill though.

    That part I didn't understand. I saw a side by side picture and I did notice the opening was larger, couldn't tell if it was the whole grill.
