Dana-customized Jeep Gladiator Truck hitting the road

A unique feature of the Dana-modified Jeep Gladiator truck is that some of the body components – including a majority of the vehicle’s bed – were built using the remnants of a 19th century steel bridge that was located in Sydney, Ohio.

Dana Incorporated showcased its newly customized Jeep Gladiator at the recent Winter X Games Aspen 2022. Featuring an Ultimate Dana 60 front axle and an Ultimate Dana 80prototype rear axle, along with Spicer performance 1350 driveshafts, this one-of-a-kind vehicle is destined to be the talk of off-road events across the country.

“Our friends at Expedition Vehicle Outfitters did an incredible job building this custom off-road vehicle,” said Bill Nunnery, senior director, sales and marketing, global aftermarket for Dana.  “We are calling this adventure rig ‘The Ultimate Bug Out’ because it is loaded with premium-performing Dana and Spicer parts, along with other accessories to explore the wilderness for long durations of time.  Having it on display will show off-road enthusiasts how Dana aftermarket performance parts enhance durability and performance, even in extremely rugged conditions.”

To further enhance overlanding excursions, a snowmobile track system from HellTraxx will provide deep powder winter access when the vehicle is not traversing rugged trails in the summer.  Top-of-the-line upgrades such as lights, shocks, and suspension are added features, and a water-filtration system, stove, and tent are included for extended outdoor adventures.

“We know ‘The Ultimate Bug Out’ will be a show-stopper at off-road events,” said Nunnery.  “We encourage all serious off-roaders and campers to stop by and check out this incredible vehicle and see how Dana can help them upgrade their own off-road vehicles.”
