The Gladiator Search & Rescue
Every year, thousands of people venture out to explore the trails, mountains, lakes, rivers and wilderness that cover America. Some people never return. Each year, there are natural disasters like fire, flood, hurricane, avalanche or tornado that strike unexpectedly and leave hundreds lost, injured, or buried under rubble. In both cases, a quick rescue is needed to prevent disaster.
To make that quick rescue possible, Stacey David has teamed up with BESTOP to build “ The Gladiator Search and Rescue ”.... A state of the art Search and Rescue vehicle to help find those people when the minutes count. The vehicle will be based on a new Jeep Gladiator and built this season by Stacey on the Gearz TV show. The project will also give Stacey a chance to feature S.A.R.D.U.S. SARDUS stands for “Search And Rescue Dogs of the United States” and is a charity that trains rescue personnel and dogs to help find lost people in all kinds of situations from natural disasters, to crime scenes, to lost hikers.
The Search and Rescue Gladiator will be outfitted with a performance off road suspension and wheels and tires, as well as heavy duty bumpers and winches for when the going gets rough. Off road lighting will allow it to see in the dark and other performance upgrades will make sure it can get where it is going in a hurry, and back safely. This project is also a good way to show what a great platform the new Jeep Gladiator is, whether you are doing serious Search and Rescue, or just going camping or trail riding. The tried and true jeep suspension combined with the 4 doors and the extra bed space will give any outdoor enthusiast plenty of room to store their gear as they venture off road.
Search and Rescue Dogs of the United States (SARDUS) is non-profit, national association supporting search and rescue dog teams, search managers and law enforcement in the common goal of locating lost and missing people.
