    I don't know about a Wrangler, but when I drove across the state on Tuesday, my Gladiator drove great at 90mph. I never had an old Wrangler, but I'm told they sucked on the highway. This thing drives pretty well.

    It even gets 25mph at 75mph...can't believe it. I'm told a bunch of changes were made last year to make it drive better. I really don't have any complaints except the wind noise from the mirrors is ridiculous.

    Still, it seems Ford is set to pop next year. What I was told about the coming diesel-electric F-150, with a VW TDI, was pretty cool.

    Talking about things like, being able to stow the doors in the trunk for example.

    35 inch tire package not being tied to the highest trim level. Stuff like that.

    All I got with the gladiator is a vinyl bag to hold the hardtop roof pieces. Not great. But hey, they give you a styrofoam thing under the back seat to hold the bolts from the doors and stuff! :rolleyes:

    It was cheap. The Ford Bronco will cost more because it should. I'm not a big fan of jacked-up 4 cylinder ecoboost though. It doesn't seem to be an engine you'd want in a 2nd car you'd plan to keep for 10+ years.

    The Bronco is practically a lego set build. If Ford doesn't come up with a partial truck cab and soon, some after market company sure as hell will.
    All it would take is a 3-D printer

    There is something that isn't quite right about it.



    I can't put my finger on it.

    The bed looks too long there for a Bronco. It looks more like my goofy Gladiator.
