Well spent $$$$$..... What Mods ARE Worth It!!!!

The best mods to you JK - what the best bang for your buck?

Lift?
Bumpers?
Winch?
Lights?
Wheels/Tires?
Jeep logo coffee cup???

Things you recommend everyone get, things you wish you had, or mods you couldn't live without! (photos are a plus!!!)

Front bumper and tires/wheels for me!

anyone with an automatic transmission should really consider an auxiliary cooler.

Especially if you tow or or live in the hills/mountains.

Mopar Cruise/Speed Control kit. It's very simple, quick, and easy to install and only costs $175 or less on eBay.

1) Rock Rails ($100 for a set of Rubicon Rails as a starter, then go up from there).
2) Lift.
3) Tires with better traction (unless you have a Rubi).
4) Superchips if you get bigger tires.
5) Grab Handles

6) Personal must have: I'm getting the Poison Spyder lower side armor next. Two dents on that particular area make it a must for me.

Other than lift and tires, this:



It has been worth every penny. It keeps the bruises off the elbow while wheeling.
