The Jeep Gladiator is what many would call a bold vehicle. With Jeep styling, a pickup bed out back and off-road parts, it certainly stands out from regular vehicles and even other trucks. But for some people, a stock or modified Jeep Gladiator isn’t enough, or people are looking for an insane vehicle in the first place, so Gladiator 6×6 models have been popping up for the past few years. Now, there’s another, and it takes things to the Next Level. Literally, as Next Level Offroad has just unveiled their take on a Jeep Gladiator 6×6, and it’s as massive as you’d expect.
It’s unclear which Jeep Gladiator they started with, but we assume it’s a whichever model you prefer with this kind of build. Overall, the model has a fairly OEM look compared to what we’ve already seen from SoFlo and Rezvani, and is about as subtle as you can get for a massive pickup with six wheels. The matte grayish green paint gives a cool military look, and the huge 20 inch color matched wheels and 37-inch off-road tires give a truly capable off-road look. That was the goal for Next Level, who say they wanted to create a vehicle that can, “conquer any terrain” yet still be a great daily driver.
For the business end, the team extended the Jeep Gladiator’s bed to eight feet to fit the extra axle of the 6×6 system. And the 6×6 system is a true one, as drive goes to all six wheels on demand. In typical driving, it operates as a 4×4. Next Level Offroad doesn’t say what suspension setup it has, but it’s clearly lifted and pictures show what look like Fox shocks.
Inside, they haven’t skimped either. The seats are fully reupholstered in Napa leather and suede, and there are a smattering of Next Level badges here and there.
Unlike some other Jeep Gladiator 6×6 builds that have optional Hemi 392 or Hellcat engines, the Next Level Offroad Gladiator uses the stock engines that are available. That means a turbo four cylinder, turbodiesel or Pentastar V6. With all the weight this thing must be lugging around, a V8 would certainly be welcome. Pricing starts at $132,000, and the six-wheeled pickup will be sold through select dealers in the Southern California area.
