    Gladiator mods vs JL mods

    You may know this now from seeing Melís; is the base modelís rear bumper steel?

    Gladiator mods vs JL mods

    Doing some due diligence (seems like the fancy term people use nowadays) on all of this good stuff and Iím learning a lot. I even viewed a YouTube video in that even the door cutouts are the same...for that specific reason in that you can use JL parts. However it is a different frame to handle more of the pickup towing and payload....so Iím guessing here (and please correct me if Iím wrong) basically everything from the doors to the front are the same.

    Still learning on the suspension side of things...to see if itís upgraded or not...because the base gladiator does have 4x4 standard...so does that mean all of them are trailrated?

    Does anyone know how much bigger the brakes are on the Gladiator versus the JL Rubicon?I think JL front rotors are 330mm(12.9") and the rears are 342mm(13.46"). I read somewhere thet were larger.
