What's your favorite Yj modification? Why is your jeep unique?

I'd just like to start a fun thread for unique or almost homemade ideas for those who want to show off what sets your Yj apart from the rest or how you can identify it in a parking lot full of other similar jeeps. Pics are always welcome!

Let's see what you've got!!

This one is kinda dumb but I am proud of it. I took a dome light out of a Chevy astro van and put it in my factory sound bar. The cool thing is that it uses the factory plug, all you have to do is repin it so it works properly. It has the dome with two map lights and I love it. If any one is interested I can do a quick write-up.

I have very few bought things, not into all the catalogs. Most all of the things on my Jeep are made by me, even made the soft top from fabric and plastic.

My favorite exterior mod would be the 4" LED tail lights, really cleans up the rear of the jeep.
this should be a fun thread.

Well, in a time where most guys have store bought rockers or have made rockers out of a piece of heavy angle and then welded the tubes on. I've stuck with the old school 'tomken style' rectangle nerf sliders that mount below the body and mount to the frame. I know rocker/angle sliders have better clearance and protection for the most part, but since I made these myself a long time ago, and since I rarely hit them or get hung up on them, I have a hard time getting rid of them. Plus they make a great step.

Also made my rear bumper. The other thing I have that I rarely see on other YJs are my tuffy speaker boxes with my saddle bags on top of them. Lots of extra storage in those suckers! Plus I could never get rid of my little cargo net on the roll bar in back! Other than those things, not too much else out of the ordinary.

My fav. is the sahara seats swap in my non sahara model and I put the sport stickers on it. Well if I had the top on I got this sticker made for my yj which is place in the middle of glass. I guess most jeepers will get a laugh in when they see it or it pisses the hybrid owners off. Otherwise than that nothing else special yet.

Here are a couple of threads that I did recently.

The soft top bar to keep water from pooling on the soft top works great. The rear tire guard was a cheap and very needed piece of rear end safety for my rig. There are few more in the attached threads that I think will compliment this thread.

Good thread Anticaman.
