Ok here's the deal... My $500 bonus drive check is in the mail and due to arrive Monday. Now I get to use it (with out wife approval!) on anything I want.

What would YOU buy? I have a stock JLUR with a premium soft top. I can add a few $$ hundred extra if needed. My number 1 option ATM is Ace rock sliders. Give me opinions!!!! :jk:
How do you know if it was mailed. I'm waiting also.

Consider, if you don't have one, a dual dash cam from Blacksys or Blackvue.

Protect that which you already have, then use what's leftover to buy more stuff the camera will protect.

Get $500 worth of lottery tickects. If you win you may be able to afford all the mods you will want to make to your jeep :)

I'd put it toward a set of soft doors from @BestopTeam .

lol I was just having this same mental debate yesterday - what a great thread!

My thoughts were:
- A winch, but it will probably set me back couple hundred more since I have to buy a winch plate as well (thanks FCA).
- Sliders, probably +$100

Or:
- Dash camera
- Recovery gear (strap, d-rings, etc.) (Maybe $125)
- Front windows tinted (maybe $150)
- Hard top hoist ($175)
- Door hangers ($40 a pair. So $80)

Yeah, the biggest struggle for me is, should I buy one large(ish) item or should I buy a number of smaller items that would equal up to the larger item.

I ended up ordering the Ace rock sliders. I got them for $435 with free shipping from CARiD!
