Mopar parts and accessories for the Gladiator are backed by a factory warranty and were created in close conjunction with the Jeep brand, engineering and the product design office through tens of thousands of hours of development, testing and validation. The strictest standards and factory-exclusive data — information not available to the aftermarket — were used to seamlessly integrate Mopar parts and accessories with the Gladiator and to deliver proper fit, finish and quality down to the color, grain, look and line of each product.

The Mopar brand grabbed a large selection of items from its available portfolio to demonstrate the top-down, open-air potential of the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon with a modified version on display at the 2018 LA Auto Show's AutoMobility LA.
Exterior Mopar modifications include a JPP 2-inch lift kit, JPP tube doors and rock rails and JPP 5-inch and 7-inch off-road LED lights. A mesh sun bonnet works with the tube doors to deliver an open-air feel unlike any other offered by a production midsize truck. The JPP logo is added to the rear of both bed sides. Additional Mopar accessories include unique five-spoke wheels, a hood decal, a blacked out Mopar grille and windshield tie-down straps.
In the rear, Mopar bed-mounted cross rails work with a Mopar bike carrier to support active lifestyles. A truck bed storage system enhances utility with lockable, dual sliding drawers. The interior of the custom 2020 Jeep Gladiator is outfitted with Katzkin seats, Mopar grab handles, molle bags and all-weather floor mats.
The Jeep Gladiator is armed with a Mopar cold air intake, which works with a Mopar cat-back exhaust system to add horsepower and torque.
