2022 Jeep Gladiator D-Coder Concept – The Gladiator D-Coder Concept is one of the seven Jeep concepts that were revealed at the Moab Easter Jeep Safari. The Wrangler Magneto 2.0 is a great example of an electric off-roader, while the Birdcage showcases the Wrangler’s most extreme hybrid Wrangler. A long list of accessories and gear are available from Jeep Performance Parts, Mopar, and the D-Coder Concept. This concept is the most extreme off-road Gladiator that we’ve seen from Jeep Performance Parts and Mopar. The Gladiator D-Coder is basically a rolling catalog that contains factory-tested and factory-backed JPP and Mopar parts that customers can purchase for their Jeeps. This article explains everything about the Jeep Gladiator D-Coder Concept.
2022 Jeep Gladiator D-Coder Concept Review
The Gladiator D-Coder Concept’s gloss black paint is just the beginning of its many great features. Over 35 Mopar and JPP accessories are featured on the concept vehicle. Each accessory was painted in contrast to Maraschino Red. These accessories have QR code labels that add a modern touch to tech. The QR codes can be scanned to bring you to a live link that will take you to the Mopar eStore or JPP catalog, where the part can be purchased for your vehicle. This link gives customers the ability to match parts and prices for Jeeps.
These modifications can be fitted to the Gladiator Rubicon model. It has a Rubicon modular bumper made of three pieces. The front features a single-hoop tubular grille that protects the Warn winch and a protector for it. Two TYRI 7 inch LED off-road lights are located above the winch. Fox shock absorbers and a JPP two-inch lift kit are also available to the vehicle. JPP’s 17-by-8.5″ five-spoke Beadlock wheels are used to support the pickup truck. They are covered in knobby BFGoodrich KM3 37 inch tires. The truck’s engine is the same 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar engine found on the Gladiator. It produces 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet from the factory. Although Jeep has not yet disclosed the power figures, we believe it would be lower than stock tuning. The truck has some upgrades such as the JPP snorkel, which improves the vehicle’s water-wading abilities. The snorkel also feeds air into the Mopar cold-air intake. The Mopar dual-exhaust free-flowing cat-back dual exhaust system is the final upgrade to the powertrain.
JPP installed a Gorilla Glass windshield on the D-Coder to protect passengers from dirt and debris. On the A-Pillar, a pair of TYRI 5-inch LED lights is mounted using JPP mounting brackets. Jeep uses rock rails made from heavy-gauge steel to protect the lower body panels of the D-Coder. Four JPP tube doors with mirrors have replaced the standard doors. To protect the truck bed, rock rails were added at the back. A nylon trim cover can be added to the bed. Mopar equipped the truck’s grab handles to make it easier to ingress and exit. Because of the elevated cabin, this accessory was essential. Mopar also offers a mesh sunbonnet, which helps preserve the open-air Jeep experience.
Exterior & Interior
The exterior accessories have been matched with the interior color scheme. The Maraschino Red contrast is used by Jeep for the Katzkin leather-covered seats in the front and rear rows. Every seat has a QR code that directs to the Katzin website, with additional customizable options. The dash has a clean, neat look with a black finish and glossy panels to add some style. Mopar accessories can also be found inside the interior. Door-sill guards are part of the Gladiator D-Coder design. All-weather floor mats and stainless steel pedal covers make the cabin more capable of enduring off-road driving. The truck bed has been coated with a Mopar bedliner textured for extra protection. The Mopar bed rails can be used to carry the low-profile THULE cargo basket, which provides additional storage space for your truck.
