The JLUR's switched to the wildpeak MT as standard at some point in '19 with RWL KO2's as an option - KO2's were the only tire on the '18's. Gladiator is standard with wildpeak AT and optional MT. May have to do with the load range?Interesting that the Gladiators come with Falken Wildpeaks instead of a BFG tire. Pretty sure the new JLURs are coming with KM2s right?
Squat isn't bad, but I use a WD hitch to keep it near level, though even without it it squats way less than the JL. However, I noticed the same thing ride wise vs. my JLUR. Feels softer and more floaty, which results in a nicer ride but not as good handling. Steering is a little more vague, but could be due to the different tires so not sure how much is due to chassis/suspension changes vs. BFG's/Falkens. Mpg is down about .5mpg, which is better than I expected. I get just under 20mpg vs. just over 20mpg in the JLUR.Very nice. How's the squat? Doesn't look bad in the pics. I find the gladiator rubi suspension very soft compared to JL and JK rubis, and the steering seems way more floaty than the JL. I actually prefer my JK steering to the Gladiator, which is weird since i found the JL steering to be a huge improvement.
