Waterproof?

Since the Gladiator is going to have high-tech gear like a rear-view camera and touchscreen,, what happens if any of that gets wet? I mean, it is a Jeep, isn't it? Therefore, I can be expected to ride in weather or other conditions that aren't exactly dry. I'm sure they've taken that into consideration, but I haven't read any information about it.

You're right. They perform extensive tests on the water resistance of the electronic devices. Here it says that they give it a 16 hour mist test, which means they hose it down with water for 16 hours to test the seals. I'm not so convinced, myself, and I'm pretty sure that there will be cracks and damage, especially if you're a rough rider, like myself. I hope the warranty will cover any of that type of damage.

Great point! I think that sometimes we just take for granted that they know what they're doing when they put these vehicles together. This is good to know, because in a Jeep, you're bound to hit water or mud, just because you can!
