It comes with an extended cargo bed, multiple engine options, and costs thrice as much as a standard Gladiator!

There are a lot of 6x6 trucks in the market today. You’ve got iterations of the F-150 Raptor, and Ram 1500 TRX that have been given an extra axle and a pair of wheels. However, Jeep Gladiator seems to be a popular option amongst aftermarket companies for this mod. We’ve seen builds from Apocalypse Manufacturing,So-Flo, and even the Rezvani Hercules, and now we have another entry to this Gladiator-based 6x6 truck by Next Level Offroad.

The California-based company has come up with a build of its own. It doesn’t look as monstrous as the others and is actually one of the cleanest builds we’ve seen.

It looks Nearly Identical To The Standard Gladiator

Apart from the extended length and the extra set of wheels, this Gladiator retains pretty much all the stock traits, like the seven-slat grille, the bumper, round headlights, front fenders, and even the tailgate. The other builds we’ve seen so far barely have a resemblance with the stock model. Steel bumpers can be had for extra moolah.

The truck rides on 20-inch beadlock wheels with ‘Next Level’ center caps wrapped in 37-inch Toyo Open Country Mud-Terrain tires. There are ‘Next Level’ decals all around the body to let people know who the creator of this beauty is. It is equipped with a lift kit, but there’s no word from the company as to how high it is raised. We are guessing it’s a six-inch lift kit.

This Gladiator also comes with an extended bed that measures eight feet in length. Auto-retracting side steps are also present. Apart from this, there are a lot of optional accessories, too, like a Warn winch, auxiliary lights, and so on.

The cabin feels plush, the seats come upholstered in hand-stitched Nappa leather with suede inserts. The seats also come with sport bolsters for that extra cushioning. Most of the other things are stock in here. In total, Next Level provides five different seat styles and several colors and stitching options to choose from. Some other basic stuff in terms of tech here includes a touchscreen infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Navigation, and Back up Camera.

Three Engine Options To Choose From

Next Level provided you three different engine options to choose from. The first one is the standard 3.6-liter, V-6 Pentastar engine that makes 285 ponies and 260 pound-feet of twist. Then there’s the 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged mill that produces 270 horses and 290 pound-feet of torque. Finally, there’s the 3.0-liter, V-6 turbodiesel engine that dishes out 375 ponies and 470 pound-feet of oomph.

There’s no mention about the transmission, so that too must be standard, but with few tweaks to power all the six wheels. Coming to the drive system, the Next Level Gladiator comes with a true six-wheel-drive system with a 4.88 gear ratio. FOX shocks take care of the suspension system duties on all the corners.

Horsepower 285 HP 270 HP 375 HP
Torque 260 LB-FT 290 LB-FT 470 LB-FT

It Doesn’t Come Cheap

You don’t expect builds like this to cost a few extra bucks. Next Level has mentioned that the Jeep Gladiator 6x6 starts at $132,000. With options and accessories, you would end up spending well over $150,000. The price is including the donor vehicle. For reference, the 2021 Jeep Gladiator starts at a shade over $34,000 including the destination charges and discounts running at the time of writing this article.
