Fun, easy, and cheap mods, additions, accessories?

Just hunting to get a few additions for my 1995 YJ... just gussying it up as I spent a bit on a new fuel pump and pressure regulator. Might as well.... getting some silly stuff like a flashlight mount, some grab bars for the wifey, etc.

Link if you like, or just throw your thoughts in this thread.... what are some of your favorite minor additions or changes that enhanced your Jeep experience?

Short of sawing out a corner for a snorkel, or needing to buy an expensive new gate.... what do you guys like?

Happy reading.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

Covered. I have many many NPS and travel stickers, plus some other wry bits of insight from life and travels. =) Yeah... got that covered.

Also have stale mud on it too. You never know when you need it.

Flip the rear view mirror upside down => => => Instant panoramic view through the windshield. COST: About 1-2 seconds of your time.

It takes a bit to get used to looking at everything upside down, but it's worth it....


I tried to add a new girlfriend to my Jeep but my wife gave me "that look", you know...the "no, you can't have a girlfriend in the Jeep" look.

Geez.....

New girlfriends are off topic. Op's thread title clearly says cheap.

Well, i guess it depends on the girl really.

whats that comedy email going around about adding girlfriend 1.0 and wife 1.0 locking up, ha ha ha. my wife isn't down for any other chicks in the jeep either, ha ha ha.

i got a passenger side mirror for mine, that made life excellent. it was cheap too, like 30 bucks on amazon for one of those hardrock mirrors or whatever they are called from the newer tjs.

a speaker bar was cheap and looks good, never got around to hooking it up though. 20 bucks in the for sale section.

nice padded center console. 20 bucks on craigslist

holley four barrel carb was the best!! i think 40 or 50 on ebay

I don't feel like working on anything, at this time.

You can always paint your faded plastics with some Krylon fusion.

Love is like a fart if you push to hard it's probably shee-it!
