5 Reasons To Buy A Jeep Gladiator
We love all off-road rigs, but the Jeep is special. It’s history is made in dirt and trails, which is why it’s the most notable off-road brand around. While the Wrangler is the poster child of Jeep, the Gladiator truck is coming up strong among consumers. With the rugged capabilities of an impressive Jeep and amazing truck bed addition, the Gladiator is one hot rig at the moment. Chances are, you’ve probably been eyeing one…
To help you make an informed decision whether or not you should buy a Jeep Gladiator, here’s a few reasons why you SHOULD pull the trigger!
1. Four-Wheel Drive Is Standard
Unlike other trucks in its class, four-wheel drive is a standard option and not an upgrade. That means you can easily turn your weekday commuter Gladiator into a weekend warrior with no problem (and no extra costs). But if being a trail god is your thing, you can always opt for the Rubicon option for better off-road capability.
2. Ample Towing Capabilities
The Gladiator has 7,400 pounds of towing capacity, with 1,600 pounds of payload. You’ll be able to pull a toy (like a SxS) just fine. That means weekend trips will be a breeze, in addition to holding enough goods in the bed without a problem. The 5-ft. bed isn’t as large as a full-size truck, but it’s pretty class-competitive. It’s more than enough room to carry stuff to and from the store, help move people when needed and hold all your weekend gear for a camping trip.
3. The Best of Both Worlds: SUV & Pickup
If you’re trying to decide if you should go the SUV or pickup truck route, the Jeep Gladiator is exactly what you need given it provides the best of both worlds. The SUV/pickup truck hybrid design provides ton of cabin room for extra friends and family, while providing you the ability to carry things in the bed. It’s essentially, a Wrangler with a short pickup bed out back!
4. It’s Comfortable
The ride quality of the Jeep Gladiator is pretty comfy. Jeep was able to focus a lot of attention on the vehicle’s shocks, suspension and more, which is why it’s a great on-road/off-road option. Jeep’s plan was to create something that would be able to handle terrain, while still being able to have the capabilities of a pickup truck without having to sacrifice comfort.
5. Tons of Customization Options
We’ve talked about how easy it easy to make a Jeep Wrangler your own thanks to the abundance of aftermarket parts before and there are tons of options for a Gladiator these days. You can really personalize it so that it feels unique with things like body kits, wraps and, of course, some GRID Off-Road wheels!
Adding a set of Jeep wheels is the easiest way to customize a new Jeep Gladiator. Usually, new wheels and tires are the first thing many do when they get a new rig! Go with GRIDs because they’re stylish and functional. We have tons of options – from forged Jeep wheels to cast Jeep wheels.
