I ordered a new JK in 2017 with duel tops. My delivery was set for late March so I was close to Spring. I knew when the Jeep came I was going to spend my free hours with it so I ordered a Top Lift Pro while waiting. It takes a good 3-4 hours to build. This way I had immediate removal capability.

Soon to be first time owner. Just ordered a 2021 Rubi, and was wondering what accessories should I be looking at? I may do some light offroading, but nothing intense. I ordered the 3 piece hard top and was thinking of either some sort of lift or garage wench for easy removal or maybe a bikini top. The problem is by the time I take delivery, it will be winter, so Im not sure there is a rush.

Any must haves or anything if you did it over you would "get that first"? Thanks so much!
This is going to be a long 6-9 weeks.
Fred,

Congratulations on your new Jeep order.

My first Jeep was a JK Rubicon 2 door. On 9/18/20, I ordered my second Jeep, a 2021 Rubicon Unlimited. I am hoping it will be here around Thanksgiving.

Based on what I added to my previous JK, one of the first things I will do to my new JL is to add Shrockworks rock sliders. I loved them. They bolted directly to the frame and do not touch the body or rocker panels. They protect the frame and rocker panels from the bottom side and the side of the body, doors and rocker panels from the side. They are so rigid that I could use my floor jack to jack up the entire side of the Jeep via the rock sliders. I did a few difficult trails and they protected my Jeep from damage several times. Also, I can park in parking lots without fear of door dings. And yes, I have a "no door ding policy" even on my Jeep. It's not easy being anal, but I am dealing with it. Only 3 more years of therapy to go!

I am not a fan of rock sliders that attach to the sheet metal body or rocker panels. The Shrockworks rock sliders look amazing and will be one of my first mods. Also, my wife is 5'4", so she uses the rock sliders to help step up into the Jeep.

maybe save some money to replace the uconnect unit with an update that will work and to replace the steering components (all of them) with steer smarts and psc system so you can steer it. Good luck hope you get one that’s had all this addressed.

Search for build hardtop cart on the thread. $40 in materials. Swapped my soft top back to the hard top with my 5’5” 120 pound wife yesterday. Soft top stores easily on that same cart after. Didn’t think I’d ever need the soft top until I put it on. Flipped it back in 5 seconds every time I could. My rec if your looking fit some mod is search for someone selling their new in box soft top from a dual. They don’t know what they’re missing

Which hood lock is recommended ? I have seen the BOLT (Quadratec) and the MOPAR units. Not sure which way to go but I do like the idea of having my factory key unlock it.
My wife and I ordered our JLU in September and the first thing we ordered was the BOLT, it's half the price of the MOPAR and both use the the factory key. And wheel locks.
