From the car dealer "Sleepy Hollow Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram“Comes this very special and brand new Jeep Gladiator pickup. It was made as a tribute to the legendary Jeep J10 Honcho 4 × 4 | T53 and is thus the first extensively modified "new" Jeep Gladiator that we know. Those who hoped for retro and vintage accents based on the ancestors ex works with the new model will probably get their money's worth now at the latest. The team at Sleepy Hollow Chrysler Dodge Jeep, Inc. disguised the gladiator with flying colors as the J-10 Honcho. The design from 27 years ago on the modern body of the 2020 model - what more could you want !? At that time, the Honcho equipment package with new safety-relevant changes and optical details was an absolute gain for the pickup, the current Gladiator, on the other hand, comes with everything it needs from the factory.

So you could concentrate on the cosmetics. And here the wide appearance of the Gladiator is particularly convincing, which the company achieves with 35-inch BFG off-road tires in combination with new white aluminum rims and a lift by 2 inches from Mopar (+ Fox high-performance dampers). These changes alone make for a completely new look. But that's not all. Another particularly noticeable feature is of course the two-tone paintwork in gold and black. While the black of the body was available ex works, the company from Wisconsin ensures the look is particularly true to the original with a gold foil with "Honcho" lettering. In addition, the radiator grille has been set off in silver and gold and the air openings on the right and left in the apron are now highlighted. On the original, both the apron and grille were completely chrome-plated from the factory and one of the features of the J10. And many small changes also make the renovation so spectacular.

For example, there was a large roll bar with KC Daylighter off-road headlights and a smiley cover. A massive spare wheel carrier has also been installed directly on the loading area and this has been protected from damage with a Line-X spray film. There is also a large “J10 4 • wheels • drive” logo on the fenders and the “Jeep” lettering on the tailgate has become significantly larger in the style of the original. And even in the interior, a few Honcho logos are a reminder of the past. Only the two-tone Levis Edition upholstery from back then can not be shown by this vehicle. All in all, in any case, a successful conversion that will surely find one or the other imitator.
