The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is here, and with it comes over 200 parts from Mopar to customize it exactly the way you want it.
One of the big reasons that Jeeps are so popular is just how modular the platform is. There are tons of aftermarket parts for the Jeep Wrangler that can literally turn the vehicle into anything you want, from an off-road monster truck to a beach-combing surfer mobile.
And since the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is basically a Wrangler with a bed, it makes sense that those same aftermarket parts would also work for Jeep’s brand new mid-size pickup.
The Gladiator hasn’t even been around for a day, but we already have 200+ Mopar parts ready to bolt on as soon as it rolls off the factory floor. This is probably not a huge surprise, given that the Gladiator is pretty much exactly the same as the Wrangler from the door handle forward, so anything that worked on a Wrangler is bound to work on the Gladiator.
At the Los Angeles Auto Show where the Gladiator made its triumphant debut, Jeep has a tricked-out version covered in various Mopar bits. To start, the Mopar Gladiator has been given a 2-inch lift kit and new 17-inch beadlock wheels to give it a bit more presence. A bunch of LED off-road lights, steel tube doors, and rock rails add to the off-roady-ness of this already very off-roady truck.
The roof has been replaced with a sun mesh, while a bunch of grab handles on the inside allow nervous passengers to feel just a little bit more secure (although solid doors and a roof would probably do a better job). In the back, a brand new bed storage system expands the Gladiators ability to carry lots of little things without them all rattling around, while a bed rail system and bike rack allow a pair of mountain bikes to come along for the ride.
Mopar makes more than just what you see here, including a new cold-air intake system, new front and rear bumpers, and tons of graphics. And don’t forget new all-weather floor mats. Those are great too.
Mopar expects that the majority of their 200+ components will be available when the Gladiator goes on sale in the second quarter of 2019. Until then, you can mix and match Mopar parts to your heart’s content at Mopar’s website.
