In this video, Aaron and his Mini Me crew take the doors and roof off of a 2020 Jeep Gladiator. One of the things most appealing about a Jeep is the ability to drop non-essential items like doors, roof, and windscreen, for maximum fun.
Actual time for the teardown was under 25 minutes, with several minutes spend looking for a dropped bolt. Hint: don’t entrust an 8 year old with “holding fasteners” and filming (via GoPro) simultaneously.

Here are my impressions and thoughts on the 2020 Gladiator in all of its trim level options, especially the Rubicon (personal favorite). There’s a lot to go over with this, but I get it done in under 7 minutes. Lots of fun footage of me and the kids stumping the wilderness in the Gladiator too!

In this video, I have help from my Mini Me crew as we strip down a Jeep Gladiator to its bare awesomeness for off-road fun. Condensed to about three minutes, the full process took about 25 minutes to complete, including an interlude where we lost one of the bolts and had to go searching. Fun times! http://www.AaronOnAutos.com
Kristin and Aaron pick their top five favorite vehicles for 2019. These are attainable, everyday vehicles that we think exemplify the segments they’re in and were all favorites from our drives this year. What about yours? Got a favorite? Let us know!
In this shaky cam interior review, I get into the 2020 Jeep Gladiator in its Rubicon package. Check out the awesomeness that is this truck. A few qoibles are pointed out and I wax eloquent about the ratchet now included as part of the tool kit.

There have been a few convertible pickup trucks put into production. In this question and answer session, I show a few examples of topless pickups, using friends’ articles from Hagerty as well as my own from New Atlas to illustrate.
