Designed with the desert lifestyle in mind, the Jeep Flatbill concept is another fun look at the all-new Gladiator, mixed with the extreme thrills of the Motocross world – resulting in an unmistakable, loud and rowdy appearance that serves as the ultimate hauler for an array of toys.
On the exterior, the Motocross culture has inspired the vented carbon hood and high-clearance flares, while a custom-designed shortened front bumper and skid plate improve the approach angle.
The Jeep Flatbill is a truck dedicated to dirt bike riding through-and-through and is fully equipped to handle transport of dirt bikes for any off-road adventure. This is demonstrated by the Flatbill concept's truck bed which features a pair of dirt bikes ready for action. With the removal of the tailgate, dedicated wheel ramps have been installed that slide out for easy access and loading. Custom body work on the bed lowers, plus the addition of a tube rear bumper, increases the vehicle's departure angle for added capability.
Dynatrac Pro-Rock 60 front and rear axles plus an Off-Road Evolution custom 4-inch lift kit help the Flatbill tackle any obstacle. Large rear bypass shocks along with 20-inch wheels have been added, as well as 40-inch tires – the first time on any Jeep Gladiator – combining to provide superior traction and off-road performance.
Inside, bright bed-lined floors plus custom-trimmed seats create a fun and sporty environment.
