Had a Gladiator Rubicon last night. I REALLY liked it. Driving it home, I didn't hit more than 55mph and it seemed like a great commuter. Later in the night I got up to freeway speeds, and at that point the solid front axle made itself evident over bumps (though it wasn't as bad as I expected) and you got some wind noise from the hardtop. Speaker setup also wasn't great since you can't have any in the doors, but messing around with the EQ, I found a setup that was acceptable. Now I'm thinking I should be on the lookout for a "cheap" used first model year Rubi in a few years when I'm replacing the Fiesta.
