In addition to running an EVO 6" coil lift on short arms, King shocks, Dana UD60 axles and 40" Nitto TrailGrapplers mounted on KMC Machete beadlocks, this JT pickup is also wearing EVO bumpers front and rear, rocker guards a bed rack complete with roof top tent and every overlanding doodad they think to put on it. In this video, you'll get to see what this awesome Gladiator looks like now and take a walk around it with Mel Wade to get a close up look at all it's goodies. Oh, did I mention that we also got a chance to take it out on it's very first shakedown run out here in the promised land? Yeah, you'll get to see some of that too and we hope you enjoy what you see.

    I love this build so much! Such an awesome rig and way to go with a base model and axle swap/40s for the price! I think a Rubicon and 37s will be good enough for me though.
    Awesome footage as well Eddie and Cindy! I cant wait to see you guys build one up! Going to go the same route or get a Rubicon?

    Lmao hell yea! Iím just shocked at how easy it crawls up the ledges! Iím guessing the extra wheel base like from the 2 door to the 4 door helped it out... ether way Iím sold but still not sure I can afford it

    It's funny because I've had a lot of people talk smack about the tire carrier but of course, none of them knew the bed is bolted directly onto the frame. The cab section has isolators and rear corners even have hydro body mounts. Pretty badass what you can do with this truck!

    Most of our videos were made to highlight the JT and so we didn't get as much footage of us wheeling like we normally do. That beings said, we do have one more video coming and it was just a fun run we did with friends. Hope to have that one up soon

    But one thing on brackets to correct/improve geometry and for example relocate track bars: bolt on stuff is cool with multiple bolts. But doesnt a bolted bracket as extension move a bit under load as far as bolt holes allow? (Elastic deformation is not what I mean now)
    I sometimes hear clonks in your videos, Eddie. Is there any relation, did I explain it good enough?

    What doubletapdaddy said. I'm pretty sure the noise you were hearing was the coils catching on the bump stop towers. They are still working on the coil rates and this was the best they could come up with in just 10 days.

    It really did great and it goes to show what a bit of lift and bigger tires can do for a long wheel base.
