I had a chance to ride in one and see a few at the Jeep Beach event in Daytona a few weeks back. My wife has a Jeep jk and I am her mechanic. They are a lot of fun and I like the way they are put together with the modular design. Just like I feel a stock Jeep with standard tires looks strange the Gladiator is an ugly duckling in stock form but will really shine when modified. Here is one that Jeep has modified on display along with a few in oem form that I did not photograph. They definitely need a decent lift and 35” or larger tires. I’m very curious about the diesel option and will check it out when it comes out but it will take a lot for me to give up my Chevy or her 2 door Jeep.
Snowcamo no they are not padded. The photo was taken right after installation that wrinkle has since disappeared. I’m also selling my wet okole Neoprene seat covers if anyone is interested.

I lost the level on my ‘15 and went for a 6.5” Zone lift on 35” Nittos. I’ve been wanting to do this since day one and finally went through with it. I am very pleased with the rides with the Fox 2.5 up front and 2.0 in the rear. Other additions are the headlights, grill, yellow fog light lenses and lights behind the grill I also added a center console with Phil Gamboa’s harness. Mirrors upgrades are next!

Jagerschnapps1 replied to Darmichar's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI just received my reprogrammed radio and HMI module from @th3magpi3 and all went well. He even turned it around and sent it back on the same day! Thank you
I had one on my last truck. It was an '06 it lasted for 5+ years before the rollers gave me trouble. I lived on the beach for some of that time and I am sure the constant sand and salt helped create the issue. The finish dulled out a little but stayed on the aluminum panels. My only complaint is that it does not stop the water. I am looking at a diamond back for my '15 but they are $$ and I may end up back at peragon.
Jagerschnapps1 replied to pgamboa's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsGuys I have a question to those of you whom have already done the swap. I ordered my harness from Phil and don’t expect it for a few weeks but I have a free day this weekend to get started. Is it worthwhile removing the old console and installing the new ahead of the harness. I figure I can power the cigarette lighter outlet to charge the phone for a while. I thought I may be able to unbolt the console and snake the harness in when It arrives or will I just be wasting my time? Thanks lastly I ordered the alternate usb cables Phil posted off amazon. To trim them down I stuck them in my vise with just a little bit of the plug (what I wanted to trim off) above the vise. I then used my cordless trim saw/multi tool run it down flush with the top of the vise jaws and made quick work of those plug ends. They fit the female on the console perfectly. https://www.cpooutlets.com/factory-reconditioned-ryobi-zrp340-ryobi-oneplus-18v-jobplus-base-with-multi-tool-attachment--bare-tool-/ryorzrp340,default,pd.html?ref=pla-mobile&zmam=31282435&zmas=47&zmac=722&zmap=ryorzrp340&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI3YCtt5ah4QIVkgOGCh29Ewk_EAQYAyABEgIKd_D_BwE
