Now somebody Photoshop an Airstream onto the back of that bad boy

While it may not make the best tow vehicle (comment still to be seen) it certainly would look good.Click image for larger version

What do you guys think about using this to tow a Sport 22 FB. Since the GVWR is 4500 LB and the Gladiator's max tow is 7650 LB it seems like it would be plenty but I've heard the 3.6L V6 can be lacking in power. Would it be worth waiting for their 3.0L diesel instead?

ID:	328994 I only pulled it about 125 miles across I80 in Iowa but I was pleasantly surprised it wasn’t having any problems pulling it up and down the hill I maintained the speed limit and got 11.6 mpg it was empty though.

Ok good to know, did the engine get overly hot or was that not a problem either. I've heard the way they design those hoods heat can become an issue.

The only time my engine temperature starts to creep up is going up a mountain pass in +95 °F temperatures. If I am proactive and turn off the air conditioner while on the upgrade the temperature needle never moves and the interior of TV doesn't have time to get too hot either.

It would make a great tow vehicle. They claim that it will have best in category (3/4 ton) payload and tow rating.
