AEV Unveils Three Upfit Packages for the 2024 Jeep Gladiator

American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) introduces its lineup of exclusive upfit packages for the 2024 Jeep Gladiator, offering heightened performance and customization options for off-road enthusiasts. The three packages, dubbed Upcountry, Upcountry+, and Level II, cover various configurations, providing everything from boosted ground clearance to advanced off-road capabilities.

Available for Gladiator Sport, Willys, Mojave, and Rubicon variants, the Upcountry and Upcountry+ packages feature an AEV 2.0-inch suspension kit and come fitted with 35-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires. Upcountry+ additionally includes upgrades such as an AEV EX front bumper and a non-winch cover plate. Both Upcountry packages also incorporate components like an AEV jack base, AEV ProCal, AEV Pintler wheels, JPP/Mopar flare extensions, and an AEV plaque. The Upcountry+ package takes it a step further by adding an AEV tailgate badge.

For those looking for superior off-road prowess, the Level II upfit is exclusively available for the Gladiator Rubicon model. This package offers significant improvements in ground clearance, water fording, and approach, breakover, and departure angles. Specifically, the Level II upfit brings up to 16 inches of ground clearance, 36 inches of water fording capability, a 57-degree approach angle, a 26-degree breakover angle, and a 34-degree departure angle. The extensive list of enhancements includes a 2.5-inch DualSport suspension with Bilstein 5100 shocks, 37-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires, and a Warn Zeon 10-S winch, among other specialized components.

Jim Morrison, Senior Vice President and Head of Jeep Brand North America, noted that the AEV upfit packages extend the range of customization and capability options available to Jeep Gladiator owners. Customers can place orders for these upfits through their local Jeep dealer starting this month. Once ordered, vehicles will be sent directly from the Toledo Assembly Complex to AEV for the upfit work, before finally being delivered to the customer’s selected dealership.

As far as we’re concerned, all of these packages are a must. Even if you are like most Jeep owners who only fantasize about off-roading, your new Gladiator will look the part and be ready should you decide to test your Jeep’s abilities.
