Jeep Gladiator Bed Rack Guide
Product Recommendations for Adventurous Gladiator Owners
The strongest truck bars for the Jeep Gladiator.
Searching for a bed rack or crossbars for your Gladiator can be a tricky proposition. With so many options on the market, you can go down a serious rabbit hole. If you're looking for a bed rack that is tonneau cover compatible, versatile to your needs, and capable of carrying your RTT, cargo, bikes, kayaks and more, you've come to the right place
BillieBars - Gladiator Style
One of the first bed racks BillieBars offered was for the Jeep Gladiator. We have hardware (no drilling required in either scenario) for Gladiators that have the integrated utility tracks, or for those that do not (we clamp to the inner bed lip in this case). We have a 5" or 8" option compatible with 50+ tonneau covers. We also have bed racks for tonneau covers that have integrated T-Slots along the bed rails, in heights of 6", 11", 17", or 24" - with the Retrax XR tonneau cover being the most popular selection.
Jeep Gladiator - Molle Panels
An early BillieBars innovation was the patent pending molle panel. Not only does it tie the crossbars together, providing that bed rack feel, it offers a ton of mounting space for Rotopax, shovels, high lift jacks, recovery boards, and more. Available in a few different styles, you can find that look and function tailored to your needs.
Jeep Gladiator Tailgate Cover
BillieBars Gladiator Tailgate Cover
About 2 years after founding BillieBars, Bill had the idea to make tailgate covers with the BillieBars spin (durable, simple, American made, and easy to install) replacing the hard plastic existing OEM tailgate cover. Using a CNCd aluminum panel, and covered with marine grade flooring, the BillieBars Gladiator Tailgate Cover is integrated with recessed cup holders. Now you can kneel with comfort when reaching into your bed, and have a place for your drink too!
Roof Top Tent Options and Solutions for your Gladiator
One of the most-used functions of BillieBars Jeep Gladiator bed racks is for Roof Top Tents ("RTT"). For the Gladiator, putting a RTT directly on the bars will keep the tent in profile with the truck (that is, the tent won’t poke up over the cab), which could help your gas mileage. If you need more room under your RTT, the Tent Riser Kit will give you better access and rear window visibility - with the tradeoff that your RTT will poke over the cab. It’s a matter of choice! BillieBars are ideal for hard shell, soft shell, and pop-up RTT’s.
