Gasoline/electric truck concept built as a support vehicle for company’s “50-for-50” trail clean-up initiative with Tread Lightly! and will assist in restoration projects across the country
LAS VEGAS (Nov. 1, 2022) – Quadratec, Inc., the world’s largest independent retailer of parts and accessories for Jeep® vehicles, recently unveiled a custom 2022 Jeep Wrangler 2-door truck known as “JTe” to commemorate the company’s 30-plus years of progress and innovation servicing the Jeep® aftermarket. This one-of-a-kind vehicle build will assist in Quadratec’s “50-for-50” Trail Clean Up Initiative in partnership with the non-profit company Tread Lightly!.
Built by renowned Jeep fabricator Greg Henderson at Unofficial Use Only, the JTe began life as a 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4Xe Rubicon and was cut behind the front doors before a factory Gladiator truck bed and factory Mopar body replacement panels were added. The JTe is clad in custom “Quadratec” green paint by Red’s Bodyworks and has been equipped with top-of-the-line performance parts and recovery gear to transform it into a true, trail clean-up support vehicle.
“As you’ll see all around SEMA this year, electrification is more than just a trend, it is here to stay,” said Eric Ammerman, JTe Project Director and Quadratec’s Director of Creative Content. “Our JTe hybrid Gladiator has an amazing appeal to two-door truck lovers and its hybrid powertrain provides excellent sustainability. Plus, its bed is 10.5-inches longer than a standard Gladiator, which will provide plenty of space for Tread Lightly! trail project cleanups over the next two years.”
The Quadratec JTe is outfitted with a Lynx 2.5-inch Suspension Lift with adjustable control arms and Steersmarts steering components. It features bronze 17-inch Lynx TrailGunner wheels wrapped in 37-inch Nitto Recon Grappler tires for improved performance over rough terrain and upgraded Carnivore front and rear bumpers.
A Lost Canyon Bed Rack and Rooftop tent was added with custom, modular mounts for a jack and Rotopax water containers. Quadratec equipped the JTe for the trail with a RES-Q Winch with synthetic line and remote solenoid under the bed for rear recovery. Quadratec’s J5 50-inch LED lightbar provides additional lighting for improved trail vision and features Oracle Lighting flush-mounted LED taillights.
The interior displays custom-embroidered Katzkin 4Xe edition seats for superior comfort and an Alpine 9-inch Multimedia Dash Restyle System. Quadratec’s Ultimate All-Weather Floor Liners fit seamlessly and protect the Jeep’s floor from dirt and debris. Overland Outfitters supplied custom storage bags to keep gear safe.
The JTe is entered into SEMA’s Battle of the Builders competition and will be on display at the SEMA Show in the Quadratec booth in the West Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas through November 4th, 2022.
