Gift ideas for a new Jeep owner?

My brother just picked up a 2012 JKU Altitude edition. He is new to Jeeps so who knows if he will actually run it on a trail. I'll do my best to help him get it dirty...but we'll see.

What are some of the best mods for interior/exterior...or just the best mods for under $100 bucks? If you were getting a birthday gift what would you want? I was thinking about the shorty antenna...or the hitch light bar. Any thoughts?

Also any cool Jeep shirts you can recommend would be great!

Thanks!

Here is a pic of the jeep.

If you want to go interior then some good slush mats are a must. Another interior-ish mod that I prefer to do on vehicles when I get them is to tint the windows in atleast the back of the Jeep.
If he is going for the black on white look you could look into getting him blacked out turn signals, but I wouldn't get blacked out taillights or headlights. Safety first!
There are some cool interior cargo organizers online you can find too. Check out Quadratec.com If you decide you are baffled and cannot really choose then a Quadratec.com or any other major online Jeep accessory retailer carry gift certificates. Then you could pick up a t-shirt and a gift certificate.

Good luck!

Mopar 7-pin trailer connector. It's under $100, and if you want to make it even more personal, you can install it for him (not too hard to do).

I agree with some of the ones already suggested..door sill protectors and some good floormats. Some others that I'd consider...grap handles, a maglight with some mounting brackets, hood wranglers, light mount brackets if he plans to add lights, mirrors to run while doorless, etc...the possiblities are endless. One of the reasons I love Jeeps!

Quadratec has an arm rest pad that makes driving more comfortable also grab handles for all four seating areas, especially if you plan on taking the doors off.

How about a spider web shade? So far the best mod I have done for my jeep. Also you can look at allthingsjeep.com. Some cool Life is Good Jeep t-shirts, among all the other great stuff they have.
