They have a good tow rating of about 7K, but only the V6 from what I noticed? How's it tow?

It towed my Pulsare 2400 great! Jeep has a Gladiator S with a maximum tow package of 7650lbs but that's not available on the Rubicon model which is rated at 7000 lbs. There's also a new Diesel motor for the Gladiator but I don't think they've released any towing data on the diesel yet.

After driving a full size truck for 5 years, I found the Gladiator Rubicon too small. It was a very cool pickup but has been replaced with a 2020 Ram Rebel. For the same money, there is so much more truck in the Rebel and the interior is spectacular! Getting a 395 HP Hemi just adds to the fun!

Congrats! I rode in one of those a few months ago with a site visitor that got one as a fleet rental. Was absolutely gorgeous truck! Ram has really begun to impress me with their trucks the past few years. Unfortunately most of my drive time is stuck in a lumber wagon of a 2015 Furd F-250 (although the tech/design/quality/ride is circa 2001). I love all the new offerings that Ram and GM has, just cant justify cost of owning one for towing the boat 6k miles a year. My personal 2011 duramax does just fine in that department.
