Jeep has always been synonymous with tough and capable vehicles, and the Jeep Gladiator Sideburn concept takes that reputation to a whole new level. This concept pickup truck is a sight to behold, with its striking Solar Flash Yellow paint, black accents, and a host of modifications and enhancements that make it the ultimate off-road adventure pickup.
The Jeep Gladiator Sideburn concept is based on the mid-size Jeep Gladiator pickup truck, which has been a huge success since its debut in 2019. However, the Sideburn concept takes things to a whole new level, starting with a JPP 2-inch lift kit and BILSTEIN performance shock absorbers that provide a more significant cooling capability for increased suspension travel and improved off-road capability. With two settings, the BILSTEIN shocks can deliver either mild or maximum power, making the Gladiator Sideburn a beast on any terrain.
The Jeep Gladiator Sideburn concept also features black HRE 17-by-9-inch FT1 six-spoke wheels wrapped in 37-by-13-inch BF Goodrich tires, which provide excellent traction and durability. The front grille, borrowed from the 2023 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 20th Anniversary edition, is protected by a custom-designed tubular grille guard that folds down to create a bumper bench. The bumper itself is a modified Rubicon bumper with a Warn winch for added safety and convenience.
For those nighttime off-road adventures, the Jeep Gladiator Sideburn concept features a pair of removable 11-inch TYRI rectangular LED lights on each roof panel. These lights are suspended by custom bracketry in the concept-light fairing, which attaches to each roof panel and features a quick disconnect for easy removal. With this extra illumination, the Gladiator Sideburn is ready to take on any trail, day or night.
Inside the cabin, the Jeep Gladiator Sideburn concept is just as impressive. It features a concept JPP Gladiator Sports Bar, made from lightweight carbon fiber and steel, that improves the space between the cabin and the bed with a configuration that features bed steps on both sides for easy access. The sports bar also features a mid-shelf with tie-downs for portable storage totes that can be locked and secured via eight tie-down loops. Four T-track rails on the upper shelf allow for additional storage options.
Under the hood, the Jeep Gladiator Sideburn concept is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that delivers reliable performance and efficiency. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that offers smooth shifting and optimal gear ratios. The Gladiator Sideburn also comes with all the standard safety and convenience features of the Gladiator, such as airbags, ABS, ESP, Hill Start Assist, air conditioning, MP3 radio with Bluetooth, electric front windows, a two-way adjustable steering wheel and central locking with remote control.
Overall, the Jeep Gladiator Sideburn concept is a stunning pickup truck that showcases Jeep's creativity and innovation in designing vehicles for off-road enthusiasts. With its impressive modifications and enhancements, this pickup is sure to turn heads and provide endless hours of off-road adventure. So, if you're looking for the ultimate off-road adventure pickup, look no further than the Jeep Gladiator Sideburn concept!
