Our dealer connections have been coming through with a ton of new information surrounding the Jeep® brand. The first was the ability for dealers to order three different variants of the all-new two-row Grand Cherokee (WL74). Now our dealer friends have sent us more information regarding the 2021 Jeep Gladiator midsize pickup.
Following in the footsteps of its Wrangler sibling, the Gladiator is now the Dual-Door Group through the Mopar Custom Shop, as part of an original new vehicle purchase in the U.S. and Canada, the new Dual-Door Group includes both full and half doors. Full-steel production doors are installed on the vehicle while matching body-color half doors are conveniently packaged within the vehicle.
With production-level materials and build quality, new half doors are designed to work when equipped with any of the following features: power mirrors, blind-spot detection, passive and non-passive entry handle, and power locks. A quick and easy swap from full doors to half doors can be accomplished within minutes using the existing hinge locations and the exact same wiring connections.
The new upper-window assemblies create a weather-tight seal and feature zippered plastic windows for quick, easy removal. Two materials are offered for the assemblies: base-model vinyl that matches the production soft-top roof or premium acrylic that matches the premium soft-top roof.
Each upper-door frame section uses an easy, tool-free, dual-guide post feature for easy installation and removal.
