    2019 SEMA Rugged Ridge Black Doetsch Jeep JT Gladiator

    So, I would be the first to admit that when I first heard there was actually going to be a Jeep Gladiator truck made, I was really hoping it would have a grill that had more of a retro look to it. And, when I first saw that it would come with what was essentially a Wrangler grill, I was a bit disappointed. That being said, the Wrangler grill on a truck has really grown on me and if anything, I find that I'm not really a fan of Gladiator builds with Gladiator like front clips. I know, call me crazy and I'm sure there are a lot of you out there who'll love it but then, to each their own, right? Anyway, here's a black Rugged Ridge Gladiator that Doetsch Off-Road built for them and as you can see, it's got a Gladiator like front clip made by Innovative and is showcasing a whole host of Rugged Ridge accessories. Most notable of which is their front bumper, tube doors and snorkel that everyone's been wanting. I did also see what might be their elusive but much sought after DRL.

    Other than the grill, I really like this one.

    I don’t mind the grill...it would be ok with a clean simple front bumper and much less bling

    I like the flares! Not much a fan of the grill. But it would be something having that thing roll up on you in your review mirror.

    Is that a roll cage in there? This build looks good, but not to fond of that front end.

    I don't hate the front clip. I'd probably like it more if it had a retro grille instead of the mesh though

    That front end looks like it got in an accident with a combine harvester.

    Got to admit, I’m not a huge fan of the grill but, I do like the paint scheme on that gladiator.

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.
