Wanted to revive this thread, with a $31 fix for the uncomfortable headrest situation. I'm one of those that finds the headrest to be tilted forward enough to be forcing my head and shoulders uncomfortably forward in a normal seating position. I do suspect this has a lot to do with upper body length, with people on the short or tall end not faring well. Anyhow, I tried turning the headrest backwards but decided that indeed it made the headrest TOO far from my natural head position and increased my likelihood of whiplash. I decided to try adding a lumbar support cushion and headrest from Amazon, called LoveHome. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011BJX3JS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I originally order this thinking the headrest was all I really needed but it turns out the combo fixes the entire problem. It allows me to move the seat back a little less upright and still be comfortable, while adding the headrest cushion to the reversed headrest to make for a headrest that isn't pushing my neck and shoulders forward while still being within an inch or so of my head. What I did was adjust the actual headrest (still reversed) up slightly so that the top of my head will still hit it if nothing was there, which allows the new headrest to sit in a good spot! SO MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE TO DRIVE AROUND! No longer having to choose between achy back on long drives or neck and shoulder strain.

My $50G rig had a $20G all black interior. I changed the color for less than $50. Most of the interior panels pop off. Follow Krylon Fusion spray can instructions and you can have pretty much any color you like.

This thread is incredible! Glad it was revived! There are a TON of great suggestions for little upgrades and add-ons for not a lot of $$. Thank you for all the suggestions and yeah, looks like I'm spending $5k with all these small upgrades and add-ons.

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.
I scored some of these for $3.99 each... awesome!

‘did you do the wrap or have it done?
I did it myself. The passenger side turned out perfect the first time. The driver's side I had to redo several times, and it still is pulling away in areas. If I were to do it again, I would just have them painted.

Prerunner lights $35 Bucks from Quadratec. I've done light mods before, but this one took way too much time, and made me take off the inner fender liners. If you have a 2.0 get ready for some work!
