New Gladiator owner
« on: September 12, 2021, 05:47:36 PM »
Hello everyone. I have had a sahara unlimited since 2013 (when i actually signed up to the forum) but was always scared to do any off-roading with it because i was afraid to break it because it was my commute vehicle. I traded that in for the gladiator last month. I still use the gladiator to commute with but I am looking to get some training so that I wont be so afraid to break something and can do some off-roading.
I am currently living in Lake Ridge.
Looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Welcome aboard.  I am right down the road from you off PWP and Hoadley.

You found a great community and we have a lot of events coming up.  Had a club meeting today and a couple rides that are stock friendly in October.  Keep an eye on the events section, and iff you do social media, follow us on facebook at Northern Virginia Jeepers Association (not NOVA Jeepers...although they are a cool bunch too).  If you have any questions, dont hesitate to post them up as we have a lot of folks who love to help out.

 :cheers

Welcome from lake ridge also!

You are with the right group to learn they have been so helpful because I had the same fear when I got my Wrangler. These Jeep’s can do more stock then you can imagine!!

 :hi fellow gladiator owner here. You  can do a lot with a stock Gladiator. A lot of the rides we do are stock friendly and a great way to learn what the buttons on your dash do.

Check out some of the fotos/videos of our recent rides.
