Quadratec recently unveiled a custom 2022 Jeep Wrangler 2-door truck known as “JTe” to commemorate the company’s 30-plus years of servicing the Jeep aftermarket, the company announced. The vehicle build will also assist in Quadratec’s “50-for-50” Trail Clean Up Initiative in partnership with the non-profit company Tread Lightly!.
Built by 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 performance parts and recovery gear, the builder said.
“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 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 features custom-embroidered Katzkin 4Xe edition seats and an Alpine 9-inch Multimedia Dash Restyle System. Quadratec’s Ultimate All-Weather Floor Liners protect the Jeep’s floor, while Overland Outfitters supplied custom storage bags to keep gear safe.
