Which Gladiator is better, Mojave or Rubicon?

While the Jeep Gladiator Mojave is designed to handle desert traction, sand, and rough terrain, the Rubicon Package is designed particularly for rock climbing.

raising the third generation axle tube thickness from Dana 44s to 10mm, in order to resist the repeated hammering and bashing that is an inevitable feature of desert prerunning.

Instead of the lightweight, aluminum-saved knuckles seen on the Rubicon, the Jeep Gladiator Mojave need tougher cast-iron knuckles to better resist higher-speed collisions and other desert prerunning challenges.

Gladiator customers now have an option between Gladiator Mojave and the Ford F-150 Raptor.

The new Gladiator Mojave utilises the same gearbox as the Gladiator Sport and Overland, offering a higher 4-lo ratio for high-speed overlanding that is not possible with Rubicon CRAW capabilities.
