The 1967 Jeep Gladiator is first US Army pickup truck that designed for the civilian but also adapted for military use. Today this Jeep Truck become very rare, and if you find a guy who wants to sell his Jeep Gladiator it surely for a high price. It’s really a nice truck with the powerful engine.

Now we know Jeep is going to be coming out with a new pickup truck but still not for a couple of years. But that doesn’t prevent their design team from putting out a few exercises. This year in Moab Utah, I saw the Jeep Comanche which is a nice little short wheelbase experiment with the pickup truck. It’s essentially based on long wheelbase Jeep Renegade SUV but maybe a little small for the tastes for American markets right now.
Ok, back to The 1967 Jeep Gladiator. This Jeep classic pickup has its own unique and attractive. Plenty of experiment and design by Jeep’s engineer attempt to built a civilian-military pickup truck. So in the mid of 1962 Jeep Gladiator came up as the first generation of the full-size truck in short and long wheelbases version. The first model was a 1963-model introduced in 1962. It came out with a conventional body in a pickup frame based on the design of the Jeep Wagoneer. The 4-wheel-drive wagon designations were J200, J2000, J300, J3000, and J4000. The first version only has short wheelbase design until the J300 generation designed with a long wheelbase. J4000 is the first model with most extended wheelbase.
I love to collect the photos of this truck. It looks really strong and tough.
