Jeep Makes the Best Gladiator With Top Dog Concept

Jeep special editions are necessary to the world. Without an in-person SEMA show or even an Easter Jeep Safari, Jeep had to pour those creative juices somewhere, and today it goes into the Gladiator Top Dog concept. It’s made for mountain bikers, but it looks like an overlanding beast, if not a true trail runner. It features a boatload of aftermarket parts, all under warranty from Mopar.

This Jeep Gladiator concept was built to go off road with hard-core mountain bike enthusiasts. It features a concept hood, snorkel and a front grille guard.
