The Jeep Gladiator is a five-passenger pickup, but now there’s one that seats seven.
The Gladiator Rubicon Sideburn is a concept truck being demonstrated at the Easter Jeep Safari in Utah this week that showcases some ideas for future features.
The truck gets its name from a concept carbon fiber and steel sport bar mounted behind the cabin that has integrated steps and a storage shelf over the bed.

At the front, there’s a modified Rubicon bumper wtih Warn winch, but what’s above it is the Sideburn’s most interesting feature.

It’s a tubular steel grille guard that can be folded down to create a bench seat that measures four feet and one inch across. Jeep says it can be used as “a perfect relaxation perch for two while out on the trails,” although it looks like some padding might be required to make it comfortable.

The bench and other custom parts haven’t been confirmed for sale, but Jeep uses the event to gather feedback and often turns some of the ideas into production products.
(Other concepts revealed at the Safari include a 1978 Cherokee that’s been turned into a modern plug-in hybrid and a V8-powered two-door pickup called the Scrambler.)
