    I would agree that it looks good, but on the Gladiator forums there is disagreement over if the bed should remain the same length, or become longer on a 2 door.

    At the end of the day I think if the Gladiator does well Jeep would look into a 2 door down the road, but ultimately if would take a lot of capital to have 3 different frames and 2 different bed sizes to keep up with. At the moment a majority (I think last I heard was 80%+) of the Wranglers sold were 4 doors, and I would guess in the truck market the rates are even higher outside of fleet vehicles. I am not sure at what point does the demand of a small minority of Jeep owners (yes they are vocal in the forums, but Jeep owners on a forum are already a small minority of Jeep owners) outweigh the costs of keeping all the inventory.
    This is where Dave H comes into play. Offer it in a conversion and see what happens. Look what he did for the jeep brand now. The Gladiator or pretty well a spitting image of the BDC. Regular cab short bed would be my configuration. Pulling at my inner TJ Brute heart strings lol

      The same argument was made to Dave for the BDC, and there was no business case for a kit, let alone a full conversion.

      This kind of a project takes deeper pockets than what AEV had (and likely still has), and offering it as a kit opens up other issues if installed incorrectly (the Ram drag link comes to mind).

        I meant AEV doing it and not a kit. I get it tho.
