Off-road adventure is often about getting back to nature, but it’s hard to do when you’re locked in a quiet cabin. Removable roofs and doors and other tricks help bring nature inside, and that’s something that will become easier for the Jeep Gladiator. Today, the company confirmed that it is offering new half-doors from its Jeep Performance Parts division. They are available now.
The Jeep half-door manna has spread from the Wrangler, which got the half-doors earlier this year, to the Gladiator. Half-doors are available in the Mopar Custom Shop as part of original new vehicle purchases in the United States. The Gladiator Double Door Group includes both half doors and solid doors, and there are two versions available depending on the top window assemblies desired.
Assemblies feature a weathertight seal and zippered plastic windows, although the materials differ. One is designed for the base model’s vinyl roof, while the other is premium acrylic for the premium soft top option. The base model doors cost $ 4,590. Premium doors cost $ 4,990, and that includes both sets of doors. Trucks with the double-door package receive the truck with the full-size doors installed with the half-doors packed inside.
Jeep designed the doors to work with the Gladiator’s factory equipment, including power mirrors, passive and non-passive entry handles, power locks, and blind spot detection. The company says swapping the doors takes a few minutes, and the half-doors use the existing hinge locations and wiring connections. The new double-door group is included in the company’s three-year / 36,000-mile warranty on the new vehicle.
The Gladiator’s half-door packages are a bit more expensive than those available for the Wrangler, but both vehicles offer both types of doors to customers. Off-roading has exploded in recent years along with the growth of crossovers and SUVs, and new competitors like the Ford Bronco are occupying Jeep.
