What are the travel numbers for the gladiator and what is its payload/towing numbers?
I wouldn’t say nobody buys this truck to bomb down dirt roads. I own a gen 1 and other than playing around in town it is an off-road toy. If I had it to do all over again I would have bought an F150 and went from there, but this truck gave me enough capability to decide to go further.
Just out of curiosity, would you sacrifice travel and ride for more capacity? Was it the looks that drew you in?
I don’t mean anything of this as an attack toward you either.
I’ll go out on a limb and say 99% of Raptor owner don’t own them to be a $70k toy.
I had a valid reason for wanting this truck. I own a camp in the Maine North Woods. It’s thousands of miles of dirt logging roads and it takes about 2.5 hours to get to camp after hitting dirt. This truck is AMAZING on those roads…well, sort of. In a real world application, I have 4 guys and all of our gear. When loaded, this thing squats like a toddlers wet diaper.
This is the best looking truck on the road. It hauls ***. It handles like a sports car. There are many things to love about this truck. I just can’t get over the fact that you can’t USE it as a truck. I’ll be for sale soon.
