If you were walking around the LA Auto Show with me last week and we started talking about favorite rides of our past my Black 1979 Jeep CJ-7 Renegade would dominate the conversation.

I had always been a car guy but growing up in Buffalo teaches you no matter how much you love sports cars winter is coming and it ain't gonna be pretty.

Then complicate things even further by starting a new job DJ'ing a little club called AliBaba's in East Aurora, NY (about 30 miles from my house and the home of Fisher-Price toys and a SH_TLOAD of snow) and you'll know why I gave up on my 1976 Mercury Capri in favor of the CJ.

No 4am snowstorm or inclement weather could ever stop it. I LOVED it. Snow monster in winter, top off in summer loaded with girls wearing less than bikini's heading to the beaches of Canada.

So how do you make the CJ cooler? You bring out a new version with a pickup style bed and call it the SCRAMBLER. Made huge sense on paper. But you know what happened? IT FLOPPED MISERABLY.

Fast forward to last week in LA and welcome to the new Jeep Gladiator.

And just like the Scrambler, it seems to make all the sense in the world. So tell us WHY this time, a pickup based on the traditional Jeep won't FLOP like the last one?

Spies, discuss...

The Jeep Scrambler Pickup Was A Flop. Show Us WHY The Gladiator Won’t Have The SAME Fate.
