While the Jeep brand has dominated the off-road market for decades with its line of Wrangler SUVs, it’s been over 30 years since this member of the Chrysler family has offered a pickup truck. That’s going to change for the 2020 model year with the release of the highly-anticipated Jeep Gladiator. Picking up where its predecessor left off in 1988, the new Gladiator will combine the off-road pedigree of the Wrangler with the utility of a pickup truck.
If there’s one constant among Jeep owners, it’s customizing and accessorizing their vehicles to make them stand apart from other Wranglers on the road. We expect this trend to extend to the Gladiator, so to help you plan your Jeep Gladiator build, here are 10 accessory categories to look out for.
While the Gladiator configurator on Jeep’s website has an option for a roll-up soft cover, many customers will want to explore other options, such as hard one-piece covers. This style of cover is particularly popular among off-roaders due to its security, weather resistance, and available track systems for mounting bike racks and kayaks. We anticipate many popular tonneau cover manufacturers, such as UnderCover and BAK Industries, to capitalize on the demand for Gladiator tonneau covers sooner than later.
