Lots of crap out there that is just that - crap. But sometimes you get lucky and find something that surprises you. Anybody interested in sharing their good value/cheap finds. I've got a small handful. I've also burned myself on occasion trying to save a buck. Hey, if my wallet was bottomless the mods to my jeep would be endless - but it's not, so so far they aren't. Anything you've pulled the trigger on and been happy about?

Very happy with these mats. Front mats fit well and lock right into the drains. Rear mats did not stay snapped toether in the middle but no big deal. They fit well, hold water and look good quality wise. Need to snap em back again now that they've been out of the ox and settled. I was happy to pay $93 for them - they are now only $75!

These fit well and the finish seems decent. No chips or scratches, hardware isn't rusting and threads fit OK - time will ultimately tell. Hopefully they will look the same after this winter. But after seeing the prices on some similair brackets I actually purchased spacers and metal to bend my own and then stumbled across these - exactly the shape I was going for - and am pleased. Couldn't pass them up for this price.

Not much to say. Fits well, has rubber mats on bottom of trays. Under 10 bucks. I never would have gotten one if it wasn't so cheap, I was skeptical whether I'd like one or not.

Added this to my bag containing a shorter strap, tree saver and D-rings to replace a chain. I've already had an occasion to use my little "recovery" bag when the truck dropping off a 15 yard dumpster got stuck in my yard. 4low on wet, slippery pavement spinning wheels and pulled that big thing right out of the mud it was stuck in. Anyway, this strap feels like a quality piece, obviously cant attest to the actual weight rating but I'm happy with it and much safer than a chain.

My first accessory. I’ve found that it fits perfectly in every vehicle.

I think that this exact thread already exists somewhere on the forum but I’m not helpful enough to search for it and link to it today.

Also, I’d avoid that last item in you list. 1) straps aren’t the place to buy no name cheap stuff of unknown quality and 2) the listing lists it as a recovery/towing/snatch strap. That tells me that it’s either garbage or the seller has no clue what they’re selling (or both) because those straps and NOT the same thing. Also, a lifting sling?!?!?!??? No.

2018 Jeep JL Rubicon & 2004 Jeep TJ. Previously owned 1993 Cherokee, 1980 CJ5, & M151A2 while in the Military. For the love of Jeeps !
Soft Baskets...less than 20 $ at Walmart. They are great for holding my groceries and other stuff in the cargo area of the Jeep. Plus if you need the room, they nest one inside the other and they can be flattened if needed. Bought these over a year ago and even though they don't match the color of the jeep....they absolutely WORK GREAT ! No one can see them anyway.

In the 2 Door JL, These baskets keep your sub speaker from being covered up by what you have in the back. An organizer will cover up the speaker....plus in a two door the organizer that I purchased was just a little too big to fit between the seat and the rear door.

i have OCD about maximizing storage so i really like the OCD Console Organizer --- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NB499FP/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 with the OCD Console Tray --- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NBWG688/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1


This also fits perfectly between the passenger seat and center console without affecting the seat or cupholders. I ususally stick my wallet and phone in there

Like the idea! If anybody else is interested, I came across this collapsible trunk organizer via related items from Tumbleweed's post:

The joys of the Amazon rabbit hole :devil:

I've had my eyes on those things for a while. Seem like a good idea, especially the ones that are alos a cooler. I dont go anywhere without a small cooler with a 6 pack of diet cancer soda and ice packs. I've tried a few different net and bungy configs with stuff I have laying around that work well to organize. Until I have to put something big back there, then I have to pull it all out and uuuhhhh, something that just collapsed and popped back open seems perfect.

You gotta give up the "neurotoxin... cancer causing... brain-eating...molecular structure close to plastic... increased carb-craving and make you fatter" diet soda. Look at the first 3 letters of the word DIEt!

Cane sugar baby!!! Hey, just looking out for my peeps!

This is a surprisingly terrific RC product. Well built and like 60 bucks vs 600. Does the same job for pennies. Really stiffened up the door. I wasn’t going to run any reinforcement but for such little money I figured I would try. Jackpot. Only thing I would have changed would be the hardware. Black would have been best but that’s an easy fix.
