Just about any vehicle can be transformed into a capable, do-it-all overlander with enough patience, time, and money. And while some are more adept than others when it comes to off-road readiness, there’s no doubt that a solid builder will be able to take your bucket-of-bolts to the next level. Expedition Overland, for example, has made a habit of reforming the industry’s most interesting platforms into monstrous, masculine visages of their former selves — and this 2019 Jeep Gladiator is no different.
While the company has surely completed its fair share of Jeep customizations since it was founded in 2010, this rambunctious Gladiator takes the cake when it comes to concurrent capabilities. Not only does the vehicle boast some of the industry’s most renowned overland accessories, including a durable Warn winch system, PCOR peripherals, an enhanced roof-rack, and Icon suspension, but it also looks the part, administering a clean-cut appearance that’s somewhat rare within the Overlanding community. On the vehicle’s rear deck, Expedition has implemented a modular system to make way for multiple variations, including a hardshell storage unit to house additional tools, items, and accessories, a rooftop tent, or a couple of spares, should you lose one of the Gladiator’s General tires to the trail.
