We’re big fans of the Jeep Gladiator. Especially the Gladiator Rubicon. Although we’re torn between this Jeep pickup truck and the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison, adding a topper changes things. Or a bed cap, if your prefer. Either way, just have a look at the post below from RSi. Equipped with its new SmartCap EVO modular truck bed cap, plus a set of choice wheels and tires, the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon assumes its ultimate form. And function.

Meet our new SmartCap EVO Jeep Gladiator edition—available September 2020. From how the cap meets the cab, to the vertical locking mechanisms, the SmartCap EVO has been designed to complement the rugged stance of the Jeep. We know quarantining wasn’t on any of our Easter weekend plans, but we hope you all are able to make the most of this wonderful day. Happy Easter everybody! #happyeaster #easterbunny #eastersunday #eastereggs #easterweekend #easterbasket #jeeplife #jeep #jeeplivin #jeepcraze #itsajeepthing #jeepnation #jeeparmy #jeepin #jeepfamily #offroading #4×4 #offroad #keystonehasit #keystoneautomotive #builtlikeatruck #notlikeaboat #smart #smartcap #ForgedInAfrica #MadeForAmerica #SemaAwards #4x4life #overlander #4x4accessories
As mentioned in the Instagram post, the RSi SmartCap EVO topper will launch in September 2020 – assuming the COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t affect things. According to the company’s website, the SmartCap is built from stainless steel, unlike the typical fiberglass products on the market. This allows for significant improvements in toughness, and can stand 330 lbs of gear on top of it when moving down the road, and 770 lbs when standing still. Access to cargo is also improved compared to fiberglass, with large hatch openings on each side and in back. Of course, all of this capability does run a premium, as the RSi SmartCarp EVO modular bed truck cap starts at $3,695, and goes up from there. Pricing for the version set for the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon is TBD.
