The crew over at Lite Brite are tearing into their project Jeep Gladiator! This overland build will be hitting the dirt on a 750 mile trip through the desert but first some suspension upgrades are in order.


After wheeling their JT out in Sedona, Arizona the Gladiator revealed a few weak points the team is setting out to rectify in this installment of the build. BILSTEIN B8 8100 series direct-fit Bypass shocks are going to transform the off-road capability of this wheeling rig.

BILSTEIN B8 8100 series (Bypass) shocks are position sensitive and infinitely tunable for different setups. Taking the technology developed for off-road racing and short course motorsports, we have adapted bypass shocks to an easy-to-install setup ready to bolt onto your Jeep. Currently available for Jeep JL, the B8 8100 series is coming soon to the Gladiator. The folks at Lite Brite are going to be putting this prototype set through it’s paces.

Ultimately this 2020 Jeep Gladiator is part of a giveaway! You could be wheeling this rig next season. Check out how to enter at
