    Gladiator Rubicon JTR TOW QUESTION

    I'm considering selling my 18 JLUR and a 08 Dodge 1500 4x4 5.7 and getting Gladiator Rubicon after the first of the year.

    My questions is, has anyone driven one with 37" tires, stock gearing, towing 3500lbs thru the Colorado mountain passes of I-70.

    How does it handle the highway passes/hills. Loss of power ect.

    Thanks in advance

    Why not keep the dodge for towing? How much are you actually going to get for it?

    Looking at all my options. The truck is nice, has the 5.7 in it. But also would like to have the Jeep for off roading while out west.

    My JLUR does fantastic thru the passes, but haven't taken the trailer yet as it would be at max tow capacity. The JTR has highee tow capacity, but not sure on engine power thru the passes especially with 37s. I don't mind regearing if necessary. I have 4:88s in my JLUR and for normal towing it works great with 37s.
