As the off-road market continues to grow, overlanding has become more popular than ever. Since the pandemic, more and more people have decided to look into the idea of being self-sufficient when traveling to faraway destinations. But it takes a special vehicle to get you through rough terrain, so it’s no surprise that the Jeep® Gladiator (JT) and Wrangler (JL) are among the most popular options for overlanders.
RMT Overland has been building conversion and specialty trucks in Fort Collins, Colorado since 1978 (when it was known as Rocky Mountain Truckworks). Today they are known for building turnkey Overland pickups based on the Jeep Gladiator Sport.
RMT Overland then adds a number of Mopar and aftermarket parts to build a turnkey adventure rig that can be purchased direct from the showroom. This includes a warranty and everything.
Adding the popular Max Tow package to its Gladiator Sport models, RMT Overland equips its trucks with a 240-amp alternator, 4.10 axle ratio, Trac-Lok® antispin rear differential, black two piece fenders, Class IV receiver linkage, heavy duty Dana 44 wide front and rear axles, heavy duty engine cooling and a GVW rating of 6,250 lbs.
The RMT Overland Gladiator then adds undercarriage trim controls, steel bumpers with tow pins, and an electric winch to handle the toughest off-road situations. Customers can choose from either a 3-inch BDS lift with Fox 2.0 shocks or a 3.5-inch JKS lift with Fox PE 2.5 shocks and 37-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain KM3 rubber wrapped over 17-inch Beadlock wheels .
RMT Overland made the most of the Gladiator’s pickup bed and mounted an aluminum rack on top of the beds. The stand allows the Gladiator to carry a vehicle tent, which folds out towards the passenger side of the vehicle on its own free-standing platform and has an easily accessible ladder. RMT Overland says the tent can accommodate up to four people, but it should fit two full-sized adults very comfortably.
The Gladiator is mounted on the stand below and can hold modular items that can be locked into place on either side. A set of MaxTrax (clayboards), fuel and water tanks can easily be fitted, while other off-road tools can easily find their way to the rack too. The setup allows the Gladiator’s bed to carry your gear without sacrificing space.
RMT Overland also equips the Gladiator with off-road accessories such as hood-mounted lights with Baja Design cube lights accessible via the center aux buttons. An optional snorkel can be added for those who like to zip across waterways or tackle trails with heavy mud.
