Diesels with lift kits and wheels are the modern day soccer mom vehicle out here in West Texas.

Got to give the chicks credit. Several weeks ago at the beach a guy backs a crew cab F-350 street tires out of the parking lineup in the sand. He proceeds to start hopping and starting to get stuck, truck stops, doors open, gal and him trade places and she drives off like it was on pavement. I have a feeling it was her truck.

One of the most sought after Jeeps out there and you're selling in the hold back?

"Under invoice" doesn't mean selling in the hold back... Plus dealer admin fees, freight, etc, etc.

No fees -- Dunno bout that "In Demand" comment - just add tax and dmv

Lifted my first one yesterday, a Rubicon model. Finally got to drive one after lift and tires and you can the difference between it and a Wrangler under accel, and that's having had driven both lifted. It rides nice, the extra length adds to stability. Personally needs a baby hemi or V8 version of the Pentastar V6. Though I bet a lightly tuned EcoDiesel would be fun.

Prodigy performance makes a turbo kit for JL wrangler. I'm sure they'll make one for the gladiator too. Spendy but cheaper than an engine swap. You'll go from like 250whp to around 380-400whp.

YUP - tax rate is charged for the county the vehicle is registered in and registration fee is slightly higher because we need to use a service for out of state registrations - If you're paying cash no tax or dmv is collected you pay that when YOU go to register the vehicle

So what's your out the door cash price excluding county tax and registration on the gladiator models you have?

So one in person and it's a lot better in person then some of the pics out there, but it also had bigger tires

Have a Rubicon on the floor - MSRP $58595 - out the door excluding tax and dmv = $54900
