Some folks gave the Jeep Gladiator over-the-top power. Some made it look very angry. Meanwhile, Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts made the 2020 Jeep Gladiator fit for hardcore mountain bike enthusiasts with the Mopar Jeep Gladiator Top Dog Concept Truck.
The concept truck was revealed at the virtual edition of the SEMA Show, SEMA360, happening from November 2-6, 2020. Presented in K-9 blue, the Jeep Top Dog Concept ditches the standard cargo box for a custom PCOR flatbed storage system.
On the right, i.e. passenger-side, there are pull-our drawers for tools and supplies that mountain bikers need the on the trails. Vast interior storage shelves, exterior lighting switches and extra power supplies are all within easy reach. Additional storage space for tools and equipment can be found on the two rack structures above the cab area.
On the left, i.e. the driver’s side, there is a battery-powered fridge and an electric hot-dog roller grill stand. The concept truck further boasts dual concept exterior task lights on either side, a pair of JPP 5-inch off-road LED lights at the base of the A-pillars, and a set of traction mats for vehicle recovery and extraction can also be found attached to the storage racks.
Finally, a dual bike rack on the top of the rack structure lets you transport the mountain bikes from point A to point B. A roll-out storage drawer carries a foldable ladder for accessing the dual bike rack is found at the rear.
As far as off-roading goes, it has a JPP snorkel, a JPP two-inch lift kit with FOX shocks for increase ground clearance, 17-inch JPP beadlock-capable aluminum wheels wrapped in 37-inch BF Goodrich KM3 mud-terrain tires, and concept steel “high-top” wheel arches. Those are not all.
Jeep Top Dog Concept also features a JPP Rubicon Bumper with a concept 2-inch steel grille guard inspired by the Jeep J6 concept and the exclusive JPP 3,629 kg (8,000 lbs) capacity Rubicon Warn winch includes 30 m (100′) of Spydura Synthetic Rope, custom black Mopar hood latches, JPP rock rails customized with welded 2-inch steel tubes, black door-sill guards with raised Gladiator logo and a second JPP Warn with at the rear.
