For the 2020 Gladiator, Jeep offers a series of tonneau covers as options for bed covers. When I bought my Gladiator, I decided that none of the factory offerings interested me. The roll-up and soft tri-fold tonneau covers don’t offer much security and I think they look a bit out of place on the Gladiator. Jeep does offer a $950 option to outfit your Gladiator with a hard tri-fold tonneau cover produced by Mopar. This option is decent, but I ended up going with a different product that is perfect for the Gladiator: The Extang Solid Fold 2.0 (83895)
This bed cover is definitely on the pricier side, but it still comes in cheaper than the hard tri-fold Mopar option from Jeep. What you get is an extremely simple to install (approximately 10-15 minutes total) and great looking bed cover. In my opinion, it looks like it really belongs on the back of the Gladiator. The hard corners and prominent edges really go well with the design of the Gladiator.
The Extang Solid Fold 2.0 is made with dent-resistant TPO panels that feel extremely durable. I currently park my Gladiator in a high-crime area and it is nice to have the peace of mind that I can leave my toolbox in my truck bed and not worry about it being stolen. With any of the soft tonneau covers, it wouldn’t even take a very motivated criminal to simply cut through the bed cover and take whatever is inside.
In terms of using the bed cover, it’s very easy to fold it back and forward and secure in place. I haven’t noticed any water or even a sign of moisture inside my truck bed, so I have a lot of faith in Extang’s claim of water resistance.
In short, I highly recommend this product and decided to write this review as it is the best bed cover I’ve come across for the Gladiator and I am more than satisfied with my purchase. For now, I’m just waiting for someone to come out with some decent seat covers for the Gladiator!
