Since the lockdown, a lot of us are stuck at home thinking of new hobbies to inject more excitement and leisure, some would update their interiors and furniture, some would revamp their wardrobe and lifestyle, while others have probably shifted to fitness and wellness. To the individuals who love to tinker, they customize their cars.
Since the release back in July 2020 of the Jeep Gladiator Sport and Rubicon, we’re glad to see some of its owners modifying their Gladiators.
If ever you plan to modify and customize your exterior, here are a few tips you might want to consider:
GO FOR THE MONOCHROMATIC LOOK
An ensemble looks put together when it’s in one shade or hue. Always be cautionary of the difference between metal grey and olive grey, they might be in the same shade, but in the different family of the RGB scale.
An alternative would be choosing complimentary colors. It’s nice to dive back into the basics and get familiarized with the color wheel. If you’re bold enough to take the risk, try venturing to its maximum tertiary blend.
Also, accents and ratios of the color variants should be carefully placed.
PLAY WITH PRINTS, PATTERNS AND TEXTURES
May it be Stripes, the Hexagonal print, or the Bonnet Decal – 1941 Design, it’s great to explore on the multifaceted variations. We suggest when combining different patterns, it looks cohesive when it’s either all in the same color block, or in the complimentary color wheel.
Textures can make or break a look, it makes the look more refined but also can easily make the whole look unpleasant, depending on the materials you will be using.
Fun Fact! There are some little easter eggs printed all over the Jeep Gladiator. Take a photo and tag us on our social media handles (Facebook: Jeep Philippines, Instagram: @jeepph). We’re curious if you can spot them all.
It’s all in the details. Even the simplest look can make an ensemble stand out just by having the right accessories. May it be lifting the Fender, adding the Front Air Deflector (Bonnet Protector), or strategically protecting your front with a Skid plate. There are so many things you can do when you own the only customizable trail-rated pick-up there is in the market!
And just about the right time to get your accessories on since Jeep Philippines is offering exclusive sets for your Gladiator!
Starting off with the Basic set, customize your Gladiator with a running board, 7-inch LED headlamps and a 4-inch LED DRL fog lamp – all for Php162,000 SRP. You can keep your Gladiator looking sleek but off-road ready with this set, that’s for sure.
But if you’re feeling a bit more advanced, you can opt to get set B which also includes the 7-inch LED headlamps and a 4-inch LED DRL fog lamp PLUS rear and front grab handles, steel front bumper, and removable rack kit, all for Php174,000 SRP. If you need that little help for all the adventures you’ll be doing all weekend, this set is for you.
Either way, both sets are a good buy and all accessories come with a 1-year warranty from your Jeep dealership.
Tip: It’s better to have your accessories bought and installed from an official Jeep dealership to ensure the warranty not just for your accessories, but most especially, for your vehicle as well.
