    We're happy to bring you our very first spy video of the 2019 Jeep Gladiator Pickup (JT Wrangler) out testing!
    The video provides the clearest look yet at the upcoming JT Gladiator Pickup, which although still fully camouflaged shows the truck driving in both wet and dry road conditions and testing its suspension and ride quality on rumble strips.

    We also captured photos of the JT giving us an impromptu comparison with the Jeep Crew Chief Concept truck which was caught testing on the same road used by the prototype in the video.

    Updated June 26, 2017


    New video of the 2019 JT Gladiator Pickup Truck and 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (JLU) surfaced today showing several Wrangler prototypes testing together.

    The prototypes are still largely covered up but the video does provide a look at the amber turn signals located below the new LED light strip on the vehicle’s fenders.

    The JT pickup truck is also seen towards the end of the video parked inside a closed facility. Its front camouflage is pulled down to reveal a sliver of the top portion of the grille.

    We just caught the first sighting of the 2019 JT Jeep Gladiator Pickup Truck testing on public roads near FCA headquarters!

    This appears to be the same prototype as the aerial shots we showed you a few weeks ago, but the street-level view provides us a clearer look at the size and proportions of this crew cab JT Gladiator which shows a generous bed and significantly longer wheelbase than the JLU Wrangler from which it is based.

    The photos also answer the longstanding question of where the spare tire will be mounted, as this prototype shows the spare tire tucked away neatly under the truck bed.

    The elusive Jeep Wrangler pickup hasn’t been seen in nine months, but today we spied it again and it’s looking more production ready than it did last summer!

    The previous Wrangler pickup prototype we saw (photos below) had a pickup bed that was obviously a temporary part (borrowed from a Ram 1500) with a cobbled together fit, and wheels that weren’t even centered in the wheel wells. The bed on the prototype spied today looks much more like the real deal.

    The prototype in our photos is the 4 door unlimited crew cab pickup model.

    Originally slated for production beginning late 2018, the JT pickup has been pushed to late 2019.

    Original post - July 20, 2016

    The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck has just been spied for the first time!

    This prototype Jeep Wrangler Pickup sports a long wheelbase, generous looking pickup bed and overall large proportions. The pickup bed appears to be nearly the size of a bed in a half-ton truck, perhaps in the five-foot range and is seen wearing off-road tires.

    Although the truck is heavily camouflaged, the iconic seven slot grille is seen poking through the cladding and Ram-esque tail lights judging by the shape of the covers.

    Confirmed by FCA to be introduced in early 2018, this first glimpse of the 2019 Wrangler Pickup Truck shows that it plans to be a legitimate work truck.

    Finally!

    And wow I was not expecting it to be so big and have such a large bed. Wonder if they just used one of the Ram trucks as a mule.

    Yea I dont think thats the final bed as 1) the fenders dont line up well with the font ones, and 2) I would expect the bed to have removable fenders similar to AEV Brute.

    One positive is it looks like its got a removable top

    Great pics. Don't think I've seen aerial spy pics like this before. Spy photographers are either using drones or helicopters now.. impressive.

    They kept the bed a relatively compact size and relatively short overhang which is nice. Maybe this thing will actually have some the chops for off road use.

    Will we see a 2 door pickup or is this it? It looks like no slouch but as others have said I think it's just a mule.

    Too big for my taste. Tired of each generation getting fatter. I'm holding out that they will make a 2 door or at least half rear doors model but I'm doubting that will happen. Guess I'll be keeping my LJ.

    This has to be just a mule. The tires don't even align with the wheel wells. The fenders also don't cover the tires in the rear. That looks like a cobbled together RAM bed on a JL mule.

    I think the rear will still get wide fender covers like the front. Once those are on, the tires won't stick out like this.

    Ditto. I'd buy this one in a heartbeat.

    That's a JK roof with a Ram bed so it's definitely a mule. Probably powertrain testing with this prototype.

    I know many want that removable JK roof but I would not be surprised if it comes fixed (possibly like the rest of the JL lineup).

    Crew cab? I was expecting something much smaller. Would like to see a 2 door offered.
