NowCar Mopar 2020 Gladiator Jeep

Mopar Modified the 2020 Jeep Gladiator for 2018 LA Auto Show

Written By, Jordan R.

Mopar, subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and custom auto parts company, the name is known for their high-performance components and modifications. Anyone who went to the 2018 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Auto Show knows about the Mopar Hellephant Engine Crate. Able to generate 1000 horsepower and 950 lb-ft of torque, it was quite the beast. Lately, Mopar has also been getting in on the lifestyle side of FCA vehicles, and announced a new catalog of 200 parts designed and produced specifically for the 2019 Ram 1500. During its production, a Jeep catalog was also being filled out with its own set of accessories for the average Jeeper.

Mopar and Ram

Mopar turned 80 years old back in 2017, and what once started out as an automotive products and accessory store soon turned into one focused on technology and vehicle upgrades that can benefit the driver as well as the vehicle. Mopar was the first company to put Wi-Fi wireless hotspots in automobiles and the first to develop vehicle-information apps for smartphones. In February 2018, they partnered up with Ram during the 2018 Chicago Auto Show to show off a new catalog of auto parts.

80,000 man hours were dedicated to developing new parts for the 2019 Ram 1500. With a desire to show off the capabilities of the new pickup truck, and place emphasis on the fact that the new Ram 1500 is more than a work truck, Mopar turned the light duty pickup truck into an active outdoor lifestyle truck. This was accomplished with a Mopar 2” Lift kit, adding Beadlock capable wheels, BFG KO2 35”tires for additional grip, new truck bed rails, all new Off-road running boards tucked up close to the body for maximum ground clearance, covered with spray-on bedliner material for extra grip, Mopar’s Ram airflow cold air intake system under the hood of the 2019 Ram 1500, a catback exhaust system with black chrome tips, Katzkin leather for the upholstery, stainless steel door sill guards, bucket style floor mats, and an all-new fully adjustable system that attaches to rails in the truck bed and can carry oversized cargo called the “Ram-rack”.

Mopar and Jeep

80,000 hours were spent developing parts for the 2019 Ram 1500, and another 40,000 were dedicated to the Jeep brand. Not just this, but being a part of FCA, Mopar had a direct connection to the production of the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator, revealed at the 2018 LA Auto Show. Because of this, during the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, Mopar showcased a modified 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon, decked out with parts and accessories straight from its new catalog designed for the Jeep pickup truck.

“The Mopar brand is bringing to market a full selection of parts and accessories for owners to personalize the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator to fit their individual lifestyles…We’re giving owners what they need to enhance the most capable midsize truck ever, whether that’s versatile lifestyle accessories or Jeep Performance Parts for hard-core off-roaders.” - Steve Beahm, Head of Parts & Service (Mopar) and Passenger Car Brands, FCA - North America.

We know the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is far away, but future owners will love the customization options for this already breath-taking beauty. Customization options designed specifically for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator will include a Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) 2-inch lift, JPP tube doors, Mopar spray-in bedliner, tonneau covers, a truck bed storage system, and a whole lot more. Turn the midsize pickup truck into another active lifestyle hub, install bed-mounted cross rails, add on some LEDs - there’s just so much available.

2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon Modified by Mopar

To get an idea of the possibilities, Mopar modified their own unit of the 2020 Jeep Gladiator pickup truck. With the top removed and tube doors, the Jeep Gladiator mods included a JPP 2-inch lift kit, rock rails, 7-inch off-road LED lights, a mesh sun bonnet, unique five-spoke wheels, a hood decal, a blacked out Mopar grille, windshield tie-down straps, bed-mounted cross rails that work with a Mopar bike carrier to support active lifestyles, and a truck bed storage system with lockable, dual sliding drawers. Inside, the cabin is outfitted with Katzkin seats, Mopar grab handles, molle bags, and all-weather floor mats. Then, to keep with the original purpose of Mopar, a Mopar cold air intake and a Mopar catback exhaust system have been equipped to add horsepower and torque to the 2020 Jeep Gladiator.

Of the 200+ parts, Mopar has already released 20 parts that will definitely be made available. These include the aforementioned bed-mounted cross rails, bed storage system, lift kit, tonneau covers, bedliners, cold air intake, Katzkin leather, tube doors, LED off-road lights, sun bonnet, all-weather mats, 17-inch five-spoke wheels, and rock rails. Other parts and accessories revealed were the ramps from the 2019 Ram 1500 portfolio, a roof rack/carrier, door sill guards, grab handlers, all-weather mats, bumpers, and graphics for aesthetic and personal styling purposes.
