Do yourself a favor, Don't bling it out with nonsense. Everytime you think about doing a mod, put that money in a box, eventually you will save up enough to buy yourself a lift, armor, wheels, tires and all that other stuff that makes a Jeep a Jeep.

Any good mod usually cost's money, look around the house and put some of your stuff on ebay, people love crap. Save up and there you go

You could put premium gas in your rig.

Seriously though you should save up until you can do something worth while, per the advise from 10achick.

a real cheap mod...free... i saw around here a while ago....your third brake light can be changed. take a piece of manilla folder and cut out "Jeep" and make it fit the 3rd brake light area and put that in there...that way when you brake, it says "Jeep". I did it actually


looks pretty cool

my post-> https://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=138410

using Arial font, printed it out, traced it on manilla folder taped off the side to make it stay.
works like a charm, and that was about 6-9months ago and hasnt failed, ripped, torn yet.

of course you can do any design.

Be careful with the cheap mods or you might wind up like this:

Dang it, quit posting pics of my Jeep here!

I did get a few PM's asking if it was mine once. The looks are similar. I wouldn't resort to the yellow bumper sticking up in the driver's view.

I like mine better anyway.

I did the cardboard JEEP logo for the 3rd brake light today, and it looked great, except the 'J' wasn't as bright over there on the left. I couldn't tell for sure and it's also dark now but are there 3 bulbs in there? It looks like I might've seen one in the middle and one on the right. So if so I'm thinking that bulb is out, in which case I'll replace it before putting the cardboard back in. But since that looks ghetto, and if I'll have the lense off anyway, I might just put it on and do the spray paint on the inside, as I read.

Thanks for the help

Okay I think I just answered my own question in a forum search, but if anyone wants to quickly confirm for me that'd be great. Guess I'll pick one up tomorrow. I take it the owners manual will say which one, yes? Or since I'm likely getting it at Walmart, the little electronic computer can tell me
