It was fun to see the amount of people stop and stare at the 2019 SEMA Show, where we displayed a brand new 2020 Jeep Gladiator in the aFe POWER booth. Thousands of industry veterans were quick to pull out their cameras and grab shots of the 'Tazmangler', a collaboration with Jeep builder Mike Duval of Duval Offroad Designs and X-Treme Toys.
Fronting the advanced Flow engineering (aFe) booth at SEMA 2019 was the 2020 Jeep Gladiator build crafted by Duval Offroad Designs and X-Treme Toyz. Nicknamed "Tazmangler," the Gladiator is definitely set up for the overland lifestyle with a Leitner Designs Active Cargo System (ACS) rack and storage pods hosting important gear such as RotoPax water and fuel canisters, Power Tank air tank, tools, parts, and a Front Runner roof-top tent and awning.
Power boosts come from an aFe Cat-Back exhaust system, Momentum intake, and Sprint Booster. A FabTech 5-inch Crawler Long Arm suspension system with Sway-a-Way coilovers with bump stops in front and Sway-a-Way reservoir shocks work with a SteerSmarts Yeti DH steering system to help keep the 17x9 Mickey Thompson Sidebiter Lock wheels and 40x13.50R17 Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ tires where they should be.
