There’s nothing quite like owning a Jeep Wrangler. The combination of style, off-road performance, and value is tough to beat. And, while your Wrangler has plenty to offer right off the showroom floor, there are plenty of things you can add to make it more fun to drive and more convenient to use.
In this article, we look at a few things you can add to your Jeep Wrangler.
Whether your Wrangler came with a soft or hard top, ditching the factory top for a new one is a great way to customize your vehicle while adding some visual flair.
There are plenty of aftermarket tops with tinted windows and made from materials to be more durable than the stock top. You can even opt for a top with additional roof racks for those adventurers who need some extra storage space.
Few things will make your Jeep Wrangler stand out more than a new set of high-performance wheels and tires. If you’re an avid off-road driver, a collection of beefy Mammoth wheels and tires like Super Swampers are a must have not only for the sake of performance but to make your Jeep stand out from the crowd. With so many wheel/tire combinations to choose from, you can create virtually any look you can dream up. If you’re looking to add new wheels and tires, you will want a lift kit to give you extra clearance when off-roading, and to give your Jeep that aggressive look.
For hitting the trail, diving through the mud, and driving off-road, you want to ensure your valuable Wrangler is protected from the inevitable nicks, dents, and scratches with some armor protection. You can add armor to the front, undersides, quarter panels, and the rear. While you’re at it, consider adding skid plates, light guards, roll bars, and other body protectors to keep your Wrangler looking new while even after running it hard.
If your Wrangler didn’t include a remote starter from the factory, this one is a must-have. A remote starter allows you to warm up or cool down your Jeep so it’s the perfect temperature when you get in regardless of the weather, and to quickly lock and unlock the vehicle. And today’s remote starters come with advanced technologies such as Bluetooth and interfaces for your iPhone or Android phone. Many remote start systems built for Jeep Wranglers are “plug ‘n play” and require little wiring or tearing up of your vehicle.
Another way to add functionality and visual flair to your Jeep Wrangler is by getting some aftermarket exterior mods such as side steps, doorless mirrors, replacement grille with a mesh insert, door handle covers, bumper steps, and fender flares. And while you’re at it, consider adding some custom vinyl graphics to trick out your Jeep even more.
With the aftermarket exterior mod scene, the options are unlimited with how custom you want to make your Jeep.
Interior Add Ons
If you’re a serious off-road driver, one ‘must have’ are a set of durable, all weather floor liners for the snow and mud. Don’t forget to pick up a mat for the rear too.
Like exterior mods, you can stylize your Jeep, so it’s like no other with interior mods like seat covers, replacement center consoles, shifter knobs, and to really trick out the interior, custom lighting.
For serious off-road enthusiasts, a performance adds on you can’t go without is a dependable winch. The risk of getting stuck in a mud bog or stranded is too significant, no matter how experienced you are and a rugged winch is the perfect tool to save the day. This is especially useful for those who like to adventure alone and need that extra security in case they get stuck.
Okay, while this one might be a little extreme for the price, but the addition of a supercharger adds much-needed power, which is vital if you’re running a vehicle with bigger wheels and tires. Depending on the system you choose, you can see as much as 300ft/lbs of torque and 325WHP. And, some people report a slight increase in their gas mileage when adding one of these systems.
Installing one of these bad boys is an all-day job, but the benefits may be well worth it.
There are few vehicles as iconic as the Jeep Wrangler, which traces its roots all the way back to WWII. And it’s why it’s remained so popular throughout the years. And today, with all the aftermarket add ons and upgrades available, there’s no better time to be a Jeep Wrangler owner.
