I wonder what the difference (besides the obvious rubicon mechanical parts) is between the rubi vs overland.
Unlike the Wrangler, all Gladiators come with a 3rd gen HP D44 front axle as standard. The Wrangler as a 3rd gen HP D30 up front standard, with a 3rd gen HP D44 on the Rubicon. The Rubicon also comes with of course lockers, electronic sway bar disconnect, and a 4:1 low range.
Otherwise, both can have the exact same options from an interior standpoint. The Sport S actually has the highest payload and tow rating. With the Overland being very close. The Rubicon is also less than either.
The biggest difference between a Sport S and a Sahara/Overland is leather interior, and the dash is a bit different. Instead of an aluminum insert, the Sahara gets a leather wrapped dash.
