    Hi from Alaska. Just picked up my third Jeep, a new 2020 Gladiator Rubicon to join the 1996 XJ and a 1996 parts XJ (Cause if you have one XJ, you'll need another). Many years ago I used to be a factory Jeep technician so I kinda know a thing or two about XJ's, (And yet I have two :facepalm:).

    Thank you. I gotta tell you, the Gladiator drives friggin incredible! But the XJ has a locker in the front so it doesn't see much hiway action in the winter.

    Nice combo of jeeps! Usually the price of admission for the JT involves some sacrifices in life and glad to see both XJs made the cut.

    Welcome to the forum @sailingmat . Being a former XJ owner. I appreciate nice clean XJs. Yours is Purdy. Loll. Although down here in the lower 48. They give you a ticket for not cleaning snow off your roof. :eek:

    Both.....LMFAO. If you've ever been behind a vehicle that has a chunk of ice or snow come flying at you doing 65mph. It's not a pleasant experience. So I put on my Officers hat when I see snow build up on vehicles. Just sayin....:p

    Welcome from Florida!

    Nice Jeeps, Love the color you chose for the Gladiator! You planning on getting any bigger tires for it?
