I'm glad I was able to buy my FSB prior to them coming out. Was worried if I couldn't find one that wasn't trashed before then they'd skyrocket in price. As for the Gladiator... this is the no flame zone right because I'm a long time Jeep owner too! I'd consider buying the Gladiator in that diesel motor they have talked about with the 6sp manual. Cant hardly find a truck anymore with a manual... I love my little YJ and the 4.0 has plenty of getup but no AC is a killer for the "daily driver" so it's relegated to playing. Who knows though, now that I've got my Bronco, no real need to pay 40-50k for a new "daily driver." Just put it into parts for the Bronco!

A solid choice the vast majority of us would encourage.

Just looked up the Jeep Gladiator. Jesus-tap-dancing-Christ..... that is the worst job of integrating a new component I have ever seen.

Potential Jeep owner: "There's not enough room in a Jeep to load up any kind of serious gear."

Jeep design team: "Okay engineers, here's what we do: just add a truck bed to the back of the Jeep. Done."

Jeep engineers: "Man, we've got a sweet gig. We'll have this knocked out by lunch."

Jeep Corp.: "Nailed it. This'll be more appealing to our male demographic. Men like trucks, right?"

Me: *takes rear seat out of Bronco and loads gear* "Done. Nailed it."

... You're not wrong. The only things appealing to me about it in the long run were the diesel engine (though I still don't know enough about that particular engine to say anything) and the manual tranny...

Oh well I landed on the right side of the fence anyway. Now If I could just figure out why my #@&^%# radius arm bushings are so much thicker than the trashed ones that came off!
