I mean, Ford does not have a good reliability record (seat belts catching on fire, steering wheels falling off) but I do love the idea of a new Bronco and it definitely would be more reliable than anything Fiat/Jeep produces.

I could be tempted if Toyota decides to neglect the power train in the 6th Gen by just slapping the current Tacoma setup in there. 10s 0-60 and 19 MPG just does not cut it anymore.

Jeeps hold their value in general, but at the end of the day it's still a Chrysler product.

4runner is just as underpowered as the Gladiator, coming from someone that has a built 06 4runner that I love dearly. But I will also be buying a Gladiator because taking the roof and the doors off are worth their weight in gold to me. On the trails in CO we took those items off and it really just made the experience that much better.

Now its definitely squeaky inside, but with the removable roof that is to be expected. We broke the volume button on the radio in the Jeep, not sure how but we did.

4runner is a great vehicle, but the Gladiator just hits all the right spots, plus the diesel will be coming out soon so it will be that much better.
Saw a few gladiators in person and couldn't fall for the looks...but then I saw a few modified ones with 38s and wow. Im interested now. If I had the option to I'd still probably pick an LC-80 over it though!

Here's TrailRecon's Gladiator with 38s

I would definitely wait for the new Bronco or go with the 4runner. The Gladiator may have my interest with the diesel option though.
