The Jeep Gladiator by Matchbox was already a terrific diecast. I decided to customize mine to be the ideal trail cruiser. I added a bed tent, downgraded the wheels to my favorite classics, added a whole lot of dirt and a little bit of detailing. Overall, I’m happy with how it turned out. Looks like I got some q-tip fuzz on the windshield when I tried to clean up the residue of the 100 year old masking tape that I used (NEVER AGAIN! To the trash with you old masking tape!). If I were to go for a weekend camping trail cruise this would be my ideal vehicle. Not really built for hard core offroading, just fun moderate trails :)
