Design help-need your complaints

I'm an industrial design student at UW Stout, and I'm looking at the Jeep aftermarket for my senior project. The basic goal of my project is to design a production-ready product by december. This will including sketching, CAD, research and prototyping. For those that don't know, Industrial Design (ID) is more about ergonomics and usefulness as opposed to hard-core engineering, but that's really simplifying it.

Anyway, what I need your help with is complaints about your current aftermarket equipment. Whether it be rusty roof racks, difficult to use winch controls, or the fact that you can't find a good place to store your Hi Lift, let me know! This will help me find/design a better product. Who knows, if I make something cool enough it might find it's way into production.

Thanks in advance!

One thing I have been thinking about is a Hi Lift-style jack that has a multi-point base for increased stability. Any thoughts on that?
