Follow along as Kenny and the crew from Hauk Designs take on a custom Jeep Gladiator JT built to turn heads cruising down the road as well as offer way more capability ready to hit the trail.

The build includes the BDS 3" lift system along with BDS upper and lower control arms, JKS quicker disconnects a heavy duty adjustable track bar, and NX2 gas shocks. Note, NX2 shocks are designed to be installed body side down. This lift allows clearance for 41.5" Pitbull Rockers on 20" Raceline beadlocks with the help of the Hauk tube fenders.

Beyond that the team outfitted this Gladiator with front and rear Hauk bumpers with Rigid lights and a front mounted winch. A custom rollbar was added for safety and styling points as well as a angled mount for the fullsize spare in the bed. A set of Rigid LED headlights were added for improved night visibility along with a set of A-pillar lights. The stock exhaust was tossed in favor of the deep rumble of the MBRP high clearance exhaust system. Out back the stock badging was swapped out in favor of the Hauk "gladiator" badging trim kit. Finishing off this build was custom Katzkin leather interior in a macthing blue/black pattern to make this a truly custom Gladiator.
