Co-Up Auto Body Repairs: 2020 Jeep Gladiator Dually Build

Jagraj Grewal of Co-Up Auto Body Repairs has had an incredible custom Jeep build he’s used for shows for a few years, but he wanted to level up with something special. Enter the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. Having a good amount of experience thanks to his previous Jeep build, he knew his skill set would allow him to elevate the Gladiator into something never before seen, and that’s exactly what he did. Have you ever seen a dually Jeep Gladiator? You have now.

The dually conversion, courtesy of Dodge Ram rear components and some impressive fabrication, is just the beginning of what makes Grewal’s Gladiator build so great. It’s hard to capture all of the custom work that went into this. The bumpers, fender flares, and bed are all custom, including a rear Frankenstein bumper made of a Ram 1500 bumper and Rubicon bumper grafted together, and numerous parts of the chassis have been notched and narrowed to allow the Gladiator to sit on the ground with the Slam Specialties air suspension, managed by Air Lift’s 3H system.

Inside, the entire upholstery has been redone in Alea Leather’s peanut butter colored leather, which matches the tow hook, roof, and motorized bed with its wheel tubs from a 1967 Chevy C10. Matching the Iconic Red Axalta Cromax paint job on the exterior is red stitching on the steering wheel and upper dash area. Audio comes courtesy of JL Audio, cleanly installed with the same standard of quality as the rest of this showpiece.

Not to be mistaken for a trailer queen, the engine is bolstered with a Magnuson supercharger, optimized with the help of an HP Tuners ECU tune. As you might imagine, the drivetrain behind that engine is an amalgamation of custom components and Dodge Ram axles to keep it all moving. Power ends at the 22-inch Fuel Offroad FF41D wheels wrapped in Nitto tires on all four corners. All in, there’s a lot to love about this Jeep.
