    The Gladiator is FINALLY here!

    This is the place where the magic happens and myths become reality - the 2018 L.A. Auto Show.


    While this may look like an unassuming tent - the loud music and heavy drum beat emanating from it could only mean one thing - big things were about to happen!


    On this stage - shrouded with colorful lights, the unicorn will appear.


    And at long last, it emerged from the darkness.


    And was joined by 2 others in different forms and colors.












    The proud creators of the Gladiator.

    The Gladiator is FINALLY here!

    Of the 4 Gladiators that were on display at the 2018 L.A Auto Show, this Granite Crystal Overland, essentially a Sahara, was the only one wearing a hard top or any top for that matter.










    Nice to see that the rear window not only came tinted and with defrosters but it also had a sliding glass opening in the center of it.

    The Gladiator is FINALLY here!

    During the theatrical reveal at the 2018 L.A. Auto Show, it was kind of hard to tell exactly what color this Rubicon Gladiator was but once inside the Convention Center, it became clear that it was Gobi. Essentially a light tan color that looked really nice. Being doorless and topless really made this Gladiator stand out.


    Here you can see how the Gladiator rear seating area looks just like the JL Wrangler Unlimited.


    Here's a shot of the rear split bench seat folded down on the passenger side.


    Up against the rear wall, you can see the portable bluetooth speaker secured in it's recharging cradle.


    This is what it looks like removed and ready to play some tunes around the campfire.


    It's just sooooo cool that you can remove the top and doors on this thing!


    Shot of the rear end with the tailgate down.




    A look inside the back of the pickup.




    Here's a shot of one of two cargo bed lights and the way cool 115v socket.


    On Rubicon models, the rear bumper comes in steel standard and they also come with these very nice steel corner guards bolted to the frame.






    For the first time ever, the Gladiator will come with Fox 2.0 shocks.


    Last but not least, Rubicon Gladiators will come with a forward facing off road camera complete with washer to keep it clean!




    The camera will also show you which way your tires are pointing as you drive.

    The Gladiator is FINALLY here!

    Here are a few shots of the Punkin Orange Gladiator Rubicon that was on display at the 2018 L.A. Auto Show. As you can see, it was presented with doors on, top off, windshield down and carrying 2 dirt bikes in the back!

    The Gladiator is FINALLY here!

    Last but not least is this super sharp looking Stingray Gladiator Rubicon, with a Mopar 2" lift installed and 35" BFG MT's! Doesn't get much nicer than this.




    High air intake port on hood and upgraded hood latch.














    Made for overlanding!










    While the Gladiator Rubicon comes with 33" tires, it is made to carry a 35" spare.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
