Yes you did! It has a little bigger tires now....and a matching spare!

There was an orange one..(pumpkin), but the red Rubicon dash next to the orange door jams was rather disturbing.
White matches the old boat and motorhome. :y

Nice Dave.
I don't Text (at least not very well), I eat Blackberrys, and I only Twitter after sex...

Awesome! It's no 7.3 diesel, but it did great. Plenty of power, and so much easier to maneuver the boat around to the backyard, and at the boat launch.
#7000 tow capacity on the wide axle Rubicon. The Max Tow optioned Sport S (like the Cunningham's JT) can tow #7650. Max Tows are basically Rubicon axles with no lockers, but 4.10 gears. All other Gladiators have narrower axles and can't tow nearly as much. Something the dealers like to avoid telling people, so they can sell all the Sports and Overlands sitting on their lots. From what I have read, some people see "tow package" on their window sticker and think they are getting the wider HD axles and 4.10 gears. Nope! Read the window sticker. Max Tows are getting harder and harder to find, which is one reason we got this one.

The clarity of the 8.4 screen with the tow mode was pretty nice too for hooking up. Our old 20' boat is a big fat pig with a Ford V8. :lol:

For right now, local daily driver, motorhome pull behind, and boat hauler. Campsite firewood hauling volunteer.
Mild spacer lift, 35's and light duty wheeler. Easy wide stuff. :oops:

Maybe later when the 35's wear out, a better lift, and 37's.

Lift #1 done. 1.5" Teraflex front Daystar 3/4" rear. This will get me by until the 35s wear out.
