Quadratec has made themselves known for producing an assortment of aftermarket parts and creations, and the most recent one, which they unveiled at the 2022 SEMA Show, is a 2-door Jeep Gladiator called the JTe. That ‘e’ isn’t just for show, as this Gladiator is, in fact, a 4xe hybrid.
Quadratic JTe 2-Door Jeep Gladiator 4xe: Details
As you might imagine, Quadratec JTe Gladiator started its life as a Jeep Wrangler 4xe before its back got chopped off. By doing that, they transformed the Wrangler 4xe into a 2-door Gladiator, as Jeep has yet to debut an official Gladiator 4xe. The Quadratec team worked with Greg Henderson to put together this beautiful build. If we didn’t know any better, we would think it came straight from the factory.
The Quadratec JTe Jeep Gladiator 4xe 2-door features Lynx wheels and suspension to make the ride quality on and off-road even more comfortable. Wrapped around the bronze-colored wheels are 37″ Nito all-terrain tires. Of course, no custom off-road build is complete without a lift, and this JTe Gladiator features 2-inches of extra clearance. On the inside, Alpine put together a digital infotainment screen to replace the factory stereo. Meanwhile, custom Katzkin seat covers feature a tan and black contrast with blue accent stitching and a 50-for-50 logo.
The truck’s exterior is finished with a green coating with bronze accents throughout. At the front, a Carnivore Rescue front bumper gives the Jeep JTe a more aggressive appearance, coupled with fog lights and the essential winch for recoveries. The rear bumper also comes from a Carnivore but was built for a JL, which Quadratec reshaped to fit this vehicle. Also found on the rear bumper is a second winch which should come in handy for sticky situations or getting heavier trash off the trail.
The previously mentioned 50-for-50 logo on the Quadratec JTe Jeep Gladiator 4xe comes from the mission that the truck was built for, Trail Cleanup. The off-road prowess that this truck has with its shortened wheelbase means it can reach an assortment of track locations where the team will load the bed up with trash and take it elsewhere—keeping the off-road trails clean and beautiful for future adventurers to enjoy. If you’re interested in helping with this mission, Quadratech is hosting a 50-for-50 event, and interested parties can find that information on their website.
