MIL is asking my wife about gift ideas for me. I’ve got a diesel JLUR in order so I’m thinking something to add to it. $150 doesn’t go too far in this hobby, I know, but there’s got to be something worthwhile...ideas?

Practical, useful, high quality, adds really nice custom look and helps hide the white top. For $150....total win if you ask me.

Retired from Corrections....I have stories.
Mopar floor mats.1050 bucks. Need these and they should come standard...

Harbor Freight moving blankets. 5 bucks. best 5 bucks you will spend. Put them in the back. They fold perfect to act as a mat in the back, Open up and cover the whole area when the rear seats are folded down. Can cover stuff up you don't want seen and great to lay on when wrenching on your Jeep.

Look, your MIL doesn’t want to buy you hood struts that only your mechanic is going to see. Nor does she want to buy you lower control arms - as she neither understands their value, nor their function. She also doesn’t want you getting her gift of all-weather mats all muddy.

Here is the gift SHE wants to get you: A rail mount, and phone holder from 67 Designs. She understands what it is, it’s visible for the world to see, and it never gets muddy.

BTW, I have one - a 67 Designs rail mount AND a MIL. I love them both very much. Needless to say, there’s one I love more.

Here’s the rail kit:

This! One of my favorite simple mods.
