And room for your mountain bikes.
Jeep knows that owners like to spend big money on accessories. Which is why the company creates concepts decked out with available parts to show off its large assortment of options. Last week, Jeep teased a new concept model for SEMA360, and now the Mopar Gladiator Top Dog Concept has been unveiled. Based on the 2021 Jeep Gladiator, this is an Overlanding enthusiast's dream truck.
"Loaded with nearly 20 Jeep Performance Parts, we built this go-anywhere Jeep Gladiator Top Dog Concept for passionate mountain bike enthusiasts," said Mark Bosanac, Head of Mopar Service, Parts and Customer Care at FCA. "Across the entire Jeep lineup, we offer more than 500 quality-tested, factory-backed parts, and accessories."
The Top Dog Concept replaces the standard truck bed with a custom PCOR flatbed storage system. On the passenger side alone, the storage system boasts pull-out drawers for storing tools, interior storage shelves, exterior lighting switches, and extra power supplies. The driver's side contains a battery-powered refrigerator and electric hot-dog roller grille. Above the cab, a dual rack offers safe transportation for two mountain bikes.
The Gladiator is already capable from the factory, but the Top Dog has additional improvements to ensure it can go anywhere. The concept rides on a JPP two-inch lift kit with FOX shocks, giving it increased ground clearance. The ride height is further increased by 17-inch JPP beadlock-capable aluminum wheels wrapped in 37-inch BF Goodrich KM3 mud-terrain tires.
Jeep decided to leave the engine, a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 285 horsepower, alone. The concept does have other options, including a JPP Rubicon bumper, concept hood, JPP snorkel, LED lights, JPP rock rails, and two winches. Jeep decided to paint the truck in a K-9 Blue color with matching blue stitching that contrasts well with the black Katzkin leather seats. Though you can't purchase the Mopar Gladiator Top Dog Concept as-is, many of these components are available for your Gladiator.
