Hey guys, haven't been on in a while since my XJ met it's demise, and never posted in JK forum anyways, but my boss at work just got a 4 door and we are looking at bday gift options for him. We usually all pitch in and get him something but not sure what the hot items out there are right now.
He's pretty simple and likes factory fit and finish. Jeep has a couple inch lift/level with new tires. He's not in to bling or off roading. This is just a driver to get him where ever he needs to be no matter the weather and such.
So what are some accessories that you guys have and love. We're gonna be in the $100-$200 range. Was thinking some husky liners or some other brand for a start. I know he took the dealers spare tire cover off cause he didn't like their logo on it. He is a no logo/brand type of guy.
All suggestions appreciated.

I like the floor liner idea. That's something that is useful to just about any Jeep owner.
I have the OEM Jeep slush mats in mine with a Quadtratec cargo liner. The cargo liner I like, the Jeep slush mats...not so much. Not enough coverage with them. I will eventually replace them with Weathertech liners.
Spiderweb shade is another good idea - I also have one of those and love it.
I just installed a dead pedal from MORE Offroad yesterday, and already wish I'd done that sooner. That would only work if his JK is an automatic though, and only runs about $60.
Not for the boss but for others that are looking for ideas. Mopar EVTS GPS tracking, for those that have a lot of hard earned money invested in their baby. Emails you when the battery drops beow 12v, speed limiter if the wife or kids borrows it, perimeter violation if it goes more than x number of miles away from the landmark you set. Plugs in to the OB2 port, self install in 30 mins.
Roughly $300 and $150 a year monitoring, worth every penny.
I forgot to say, the ecometer and the evts tracking can both be plugged in to the OBD2 port at the same time. the EVTS harness takes the original harness and pigtails in to it and then provides a new plug. It is done this way so the EVTS can be hidden from thieves and cheating wives and speeding kids. The ecometer then plugs in to the final plug. When you visit the dealership or shop the ecometer is unplugged temporarily. The evts is never disturbed.
Spriderweb shade is a great choice. Everyone who has them loves them, I've seen three in person and all say it doesn't really flap around. It will be one of the next mods I get. Weathertech floor mats are top notch cannot go wrong with those either
