Give me a 2-door manual with the diesel, and I'll sell my firstborn for one...

Given that isn't likely to happen though... eh, I'll stick to my JK, and get a Tacoma again if I can't live without a truck.

I can't wait to see one in person. The sticker price will be the last part of me checking it out so I can at least love it up until then.

Another vote for a 2 door with a usable bed. I would buy one in a heartbeat to let me haul material with the top and doors off. I'm not holding my breath though, we all know what sells here.

Already emailed my local dealer asking if Jeep released any tentative pricing.. does this answer the question?

Talking Definitely!

Been waiting a long time for this. Plan on towing a camping trailer so the towing capacity is more than perfect. Don't need a diesel, not interested in a diesel, now or in the future. The 3.6L Penty in my 2012 JKU Rubicon has been extremely reliable and trouble free for the past 150,000 miles, it will do just fine. Love my four door JK so I'm glad they have the four door Gladiator, don't need a two door, not interested in a two door. More interested in overlanding than rock crawling so the breakover and rear departure angle are not as important to me. In other words, this will be the perfect vehicle for what I want it for.

Now just waiting to see what colors I will have to choose from and the pricing will tell if I stay with a Rubicon Level or have to settle for the Sport S model. One way or the other, I will own one.

The gas powered one is actually going to have a higher tow rating than the diesel version. They say it is due to better airflow and cooling in the gas version. I still find it hard to believe the 3.6 is going to be rated to pull 7650 pounds.
