For many journalists attending the 2019 Easter Jeep Safari, the Jeep Gladiator Wayout Concept was a favorite. It combines the off-road ability of a Jeep Gladiator Rubicon with the features popular for overlanding. In many ways it embodies the spirit of what many in the overlanding community cherish.

The Jeep Gladiator Wayout begins with a Gladiator Rubicon with the Pentastar V6, eight-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive (4WD). Colored in the new “Gator” green color (which will be an optional color for the regular Gladiator), Jeep design had some fun.

Many components, available through Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) were augmented with popular overlanding kit. A JPP two-inch lift kit, lifts the Wayout above 37-inch mud-terrain tires which are mounted on aftermarket 17-inch steel wheels. Some of the other components consist of a JPP snorkel, aftermarket rooftop tent and a 12,000-lbs Warn winch.

There is a custom-built rear rack (which holds the rooftop tent) and recessed pockets for extra fuel tanks too. The interior is augmented with unique badging and custom seats that have topographical maps etched in the leather.

“A bed rack with an integrated ladder carries a roof-top tent that sleeps two. A Mopar/Decked lockable bed-drawer system sits in the bed as well. Complimenting the camping component of this vehicle, Jeep added a 270-degree awning with amber LED task lighting.” – – TFLtruck
