The Jeep Gladiator Rubicon is a very desirable platform for overland builds with recent examples including a 2021 Rubicon and a 2020 with AT Overland Summit camper. In short, the Gladiator is an extended version of the Wrangler with a pickup bed and several key differences. Inevitably the Gladiator’s extended wheelbase offers both positive and negative attributes. Nevertheless, for overlanding purposes, I’d sacrifice some of the Wrangler’s benefits in return for the Gladiator’s additional space, versatility, and payload. If you’d like a detailed overview of why this platform is great for travel and how it can be further outfitted for adventure then listen to Building the Jeep Gladiator for Overlanding on the Overland Journal Podcast. Alternatively, read this fascinating piece by Dan Grec on the Jeep Gladiator he built to complete some of the most isolated routes in Australia. These included the Canning Stock Route, which covers 1,100 unsupported miles and requires 20 days of food and water. Finally, watch Scott Brady put this platform through its paces in Gladiator vs. Brute :: Comparing the Ultimate Diesel Trucks on the Expedition Portal YouTube channel. Today’s low mileage (19,000 miles) 2022 Rubicon features premium modifications, a Go Faster Camper V2, and is priced at a competitive $69,000 OBO.
From the Seller:
“Due to a family move and some life circumstances (trying to fit another car seat in the cab) I’m looking to sell my beloved Gladiator. I figured I’d toss it on here to see if anyone in the community was interested. [The] Jeep has been immaculately maintained since I built it back in March. Only one owner, non-smoking, and no pets. Still under factory warranty with one Jeep Wave Premium Owner oil change left. This thing is a beast on and off-road. If you’re looking for a fully built overlanding rig for the holidays, look no further.”
