The Jeep Gladiator is one of the coolest, most unique vehicles available today. The new Mojave trim makes the truck look even better with a distinctive hood scoop, 1" front-end lift, and orange accents. This truck was made for high-speed, off-road, desert-running fun, and just the sight of it sparks dreams of incredible adventures!
I really enjoy building detailed vehicles out of Legos, and the Gladiator is one that just screams for attention. All the possible configurations and accessories for the Jeep make it even more enticing. If this were to become a Lego set, there are endless possibilities of modifications that could be made to it, just like the real truck.
I included operable, easily removable doors, a removable hardtop, and removable roof panels above the front seats, the same as you would get if you bought the stock vehicle from a dealership. A Lego set could include larger off-road tires, tonneau cover, bed cap, cloth retractable roof, tube doors, side steps, winch, or any other number of common options. What would be really neat would be an accessory pack that could be purchased separately to modify the Lego Jeep Gladiator Mojave set, so each one could be as unique as the person building it. I believe the ability to modify a Jeep to reflect the personality of the owner and make it one of a kind is one of the biggest draws to them. Lego fans and Jeep fans have a lot in common, I think this would be the perfect match!
My model has full suspension with bump stops to keep the tires from hitting the frame, and turning wheels with full clearance under the fenders, regardless of the position of the suspension. This was important to me in the build, even though it it can't be conveyed through the photos. I hope you enjoy it!
