Having trouble deciding on my next modification

Hey there! I am new to the forum and his is my first post.
I have a 16 JKU with a 3.5in lift, 37inch tires, falcon shocks, and it’s armored all the way around. It’s got pretty much everything.

For my next modification I am having trouble deciding on what is the best course of action.

I have been looking at putting either a higher end roof rack (front runner, Gobi etc), or a fridge.

I have been struggling debating what I’m going to get more use out of.

Because they are such different things I was hoping someone with more experience with these two modifications than I could provide and an opinion and what they think the best route to go is.

I really like the Gobi rack but is there anywhere that the Frontrunner excels or vise versa?
I have also considered cheaper racks ($500 range) but am worried as they will not let me mount a rtt and have limited weight capacity. Or are built cheaply and don’t look really great

Is it more worth it to go with the fridge than the rack?

I’m looking at the dometic 50. is this a good size for putting on a slider in the back of the Jeep, I would want it to take about half of the available space. (Like the camp kitchen drawer setups) Or if there is a better size / brand what do you recommend?
I currently use a 60L cooler with ice and it works but it generally limits me to 3 days of “cold” storage
And I’m usually a bit worried about things like meat going bad by that point

At some point I will do both but am really trying to get a sense of what is the better thing to start with.

Thanks for the help in advance!

Sounds like an awesome rig. Can't go wrong with the gobi rack. In the meantime, if you need affordable easier to diy mod ideas, check out the video

Maybe an aux transmission cooler -
A good scanner for when things go wrong,
but chrome antenna streamers are another option.

When I see the price of OEM I think aftermarket.

ARB is leader in refrigerator/freezers but they are expensive.

If you haven’t regeared your differentials and installed lockers, get it done first.

Too many mods to list. Too awesome to sell.
