My Birthday isn't until November, but I'd like to get a list going now, My moms going shopping early. I figured she will spend a bit since i will be 21 and all.
I pretty much just want is stuff for the Jeep. Well I need some suggestions as what to ask for. I have a 2004 X.
What are some good things to have on/in your jeep.
I'd like to go light off roading once I get some time. I don't plan on lifting it, but do plan on going with a 31" tire once the stock GSA's bite the dust.
I have a dog and wanted to get some of the raingler nets,any one got em and what do you think?
I have the Raingler nets and I love them. They work great. As for good stuff for the jeep, Doghouse pretty much covered the basics. You should get some good towhooks for the front and rear, too. Tow hooks, a tow strap, and a fire extinguisher are must have items.
I know you said you're not going to do a lot of offroading, but if you're going to get tow hooks and recovery straps (which I highly recommend), you need to get a little shovel that folds up and fits under your seat. If you're pulling someone out or getting yourself out, it helps a ton to be able to clear a pathway for your tires to get out.
ps-don't throw away your list after your birthday. If you don't get everything on your list, give the remaining items to Santa at the mall.
Thanks everyone. I'll be adding that to the jeep list. Here starts the begining of "Project Green"
One more question would factory bumper lights be a good lights for off roading. I have seen jeeps around here drive with them on, and others just use them with no headlights on? What are they supposed to be used for?
would it be a good idea to get them or if not where would i find some
SMALL off road lights, and where is the best place to have them on the jeep?
as far as "the best place" for off-road lights, i'm not sure that this has been really covered , but I like them to be wide angle lights on the bumper, toward the outside, like the factory lights, as well as some narrow angle beams toward the middle, that way, with your headlights on high-beam, you have pretty broad coverage.
get covers for 'em too.
I'd also add supplementary back-up lights... especially with a tinted back window.
