Is the Gladiator NightHawk worth it?

While the 2024 Jeep Gladiator NightHawk does add a lot of convenience features and a unique look, let’s break down its cost and features.

Another way to save with off-roading upgrades is the add the Max Tow package to the Gladiator Sport for $1,995. It comes with Dana 44 axles, a 4.10 axle ratio, an anti-spin differential, two-piece back fender flares, and a 240 amp alternator.
