Congratulations on your induction into a little something we call “the Jeep community.” The Jeep Wrangler is the original utility vehicle, an American classic from before the letters “SUV” evoked gas-guzzling behemoths that were more for show than utility. You’re now qualified to give the Jeep wave to your fellow drivers and start getting to work on your new ride.
You see, buying a Wrangler isn’t like buying a Corolla. If you wanted a finished product that you’ll never have to think about tweaking, you’ve bought the wrong automobile. A Jeep Wrangler is a constant work in progress, always leaving room for improvement and making more of that room as you continue to grow as a driver. You can’t be satisfied with a stock Jeep. While it won’t get you ejected from the Jeep community, people will start to wonder why you haven’t given your Jeep your personal touch. Here’s how you can do just that. We’ve put together a list of what every first-time Jeep owner needs to buy to make it theirs.
This is where form and function converge in Jeep modification. True, you want to protect your upholstery from premature wear. After all, you plan to spend a lot of time in your Jeep, and you probably won’t be the only one along for the ride. Here’s a chance to prolong your seat life with your own sense of style.
Your Jeep comes standard with respectable headlights and taillights. However, if you bought your Jeep for your off-roading pursuits, you may want much more visibility when rain and mud become factors. Don’t settle for stock lamps—switch them out for aftermarket LED alternatives as soon as you can.
Having the wind in your hair on warm days while cordoning off the elements in inclement weather is truly one of the great perks of Jeep ownership. Unlike a convertible, however, you can’t put the top up and down at the mere push of a button. With a dedicated hardtop removal tool, however, you have the next best thing. From the comfort of your garage, you can easily remove and store your Wrangler’s roof with a few minutes and no assistance. In those transitional months where you never know what the day’s weather will hold, a hardtop removal tool makes it easy to toggle between roof configurations—you won’t have to limit yourself to two changes a year.
If you’re planning on hitting the trails—and why wouldn’t you be—then aftermarket bumpers are among what every first-time Jeep owner needs to buy. You’re bound to take some bumps and bruises as you go off-roading. High-quality bumpers for off-road excursions will absorb some of that damage and keep your Jeep riding over the hills, across the river, through the sand, and anywhere else your trails take you.
