Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 24 hours, you've probably seen the new Wrangler-based Jeep Gladiator pickup. People seem to like it, but if you're not a fan, don't worry, we've found the perfect alternative: This custom-built Jeep Wrangler six-wheeler. It's , and you should buy it.
Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
Built by a company called in Industry, CA, this six-wheeler is a 2017 model, meaning it's based on the old JK-model Wrangler. Aside from the elongated body, two extra wheels, and stretched roof, it includes a third row of seats, a three-inch lift, Eibach shocks, a custom front bumper, and 20-inch wheels wrapped in 35-inch mud terrain tires. It seems incredibly well-done, nearly to the point of looking OEM. All of the body lines and proportions are just right.
This particular Wrangler was equipped from the factory with FCA's 3.6-liter V6, sending power to the wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. The powertrain looks to be unmodified, which is interesting considering all the extra weight it now has to move around. That being said, the truck is barely broken-in, with just 2018 miles on the odometer. It looks to be in spotless condition, with straight panels, good paint, and a clean interior.
The seller currently has this six-wheel Jeep , which, honestly, isn't that expensive considering all the custom work done, and lack of mileage. You're basically getting a new 2017 Wrangler with more wheels and a third row of seats. Would we buy this over a new Gladiator? Considering the pickup's impressive towing capacity, it'd be a tough choice.
