What does the Desert Rated badge mean?
Excellent question! The desert is an unforgiving place with high temperatures, unforgiving terrain, and sand that seems to get into every single nook and cranny imaginable. The Desert Rated badge by Jeep means any vehicle sporting the badge is more than capable of showing the desert who is boss. Desert Rated vehicles are tested in five different categories, including ground clearance, traction, desert prowess, maneuverability, and ride control and stability. Maneuverability ensures your Desert Rated vehicle is capable of climbing sand dunes, navigate through narrow gaps, and roam over open air. The desert prowess test makes sure the vehicle can traverse through loose gravel, sand, and extreme heat.
What does the Gladiator Mojave have for desert features?
Get ready to hit the desert with the Gladiator Mojave and industry-exclusive FOX front hydraulic jounce bumpers. You’ll get maximum performance on and off the road with the upgraded FOX 2.5-inch internal bypass shocks with external reservoirs. As soon as the Gladiator Mojave’s tires hit the sand, you should hit the Off-Road+ button when you are in 4HI, and you’re ready for some high-speed sand crawling fun! The Mojave rides on 17-inch wheels wrapped in 33-inch all-terrain tires that increase on and off-road performance.
What 4×4 system does the Mojave use?
The Gladiator Mojave utilizes the proven Command-Trac 4×4 system to crawl effortlessly through sand and over tough terrain. The system features a 2.71:1 low-range gear ratio thanks to a two-speed transfer case. You’ll also find a standard electronic-locking rear differential and heavy-duty third-generation Dana 44 front and rear axles. These axles come with a 4.10:1 axle ratio. The Gladiator Mojave takes advantage of 11.6-inch best-in-class ground clearance, a 44.7-degree approach angle, a 20.9-degree breakover angle, and a 25.5-degree departure angle.
What does the Mojave have for stylish feautres?
We’re glad you asked! The Mojave proudly sports a dark shadow gray and orange Mojave decal on its aggressive performance hood, which by the way, features a gnarly looking center scoop. The orange theme is continued into the interior of the Mojave by means of orange accent stitching and the Mojave logo that is stitched into the driver and passenger seat. You’ll also notice the Mojave sports orange tow hooks just in case you get stuck or need to bail someone out.
