The Jeep Gladiator’s stock rear bumper is perfect for standard use. If you have something more than standard in mind though, an upgraded rear bumper is an easy exterior upgrade.
An improved rear bumper can add utility to your Jeep by giving you places to attach d-rings and a hitch. These Gladiator bumper accessories make it a lot easier to haul your gear on your next camping trip. They also add valuable recovery options, a must for any off-roader.
The rear bumper also affects your truck’s departure angle, an important off-roading measurement. Upgrading your Gladiator JT’s front bumper can also improve its approach angle. This is why changing out the stock bumpers is an important part of building a great off-roading truck. The other angle important for off-roading is breakover angle. To improve breakover angle, you should look at installing a Jeep lift kit.
Upgrading a Gladiator’s bumpers offers off-roading prowess, utility, and a layer of protection. These are all good reasons to pick out a new one. It also offers an opportunity to customize your Gladiator’s appearance.
