Clear windshield protectors, so your windshield isn’t easily broken by rocks. You apply it like a screen protector.

I've been thinking a LOT about this for the last couple of weeks. The newer glass type screen protector in a windshield size would be awesome! Install could be a bit of a pain, but it's doable.

A way to High mount a CB. Like the one over the rear view mirror on the JK.

Extended fender flares that cover wider wheels. Law in our state. No one has them and Bushwacker seems to be dragging its tail..

How about a rack or bracket that would hold the doors after you take them off. Say you’re out on a trail, 50 miles from home and you’d love to take the doors off but have no place to put or carry them.
It might need to be an adjunct to a roof rack just for space requirements.

I would like to add a #metoo to:
1.) USB on mirror or top of dash
2.) rubber mats in lieu of carpet (it's a Jeep for Christ's sake)
3.) Underseat safe that has a 5 button combo lock (no key required)

  • Underseat gun safe
  • Thick mil decal that covers the face of the grill, satin black of course.
  • A soft cargo cover.

I would love to see a sliding side rear window option for the hardtop, either from the factory or aftermarket. In fact, I'm wondering why no aftermarket company (to my knowledge) makes sliding rear side windows for the hardtops on TJ's, JK's and JL's.

I would purchase them in an instant if they were available.

There is a slider window kit for the JKU and JK from Retrofit Offroad: http://www.retrofitoffroad.com/product-category/jeep-wrangler-jk-factory-hardtop-slider-window-kit/.

I'm not an employee of Retrofit but I designed the slider window kits for them. It would be easy to do JL/JLU slider window kits.

Anyone interested in a rear seat delete....I'm thinking of doing one for mine, might as well test the waters for a product????

I'm thinking as low cost as possible....no frills, no fancy (read...expensive) access panels, as few pieces as possible. Just a proper platform to extend your cargo capacity or put a mattress on.
What do you think.??

Tailgate Molle system or storage system... without table.
Easy to do and I would make it if there is a customer base for it....

Understand the pros and cons of such a system as compared to the fold down tray (which ours is shaping up to be awesome BTW)

Pros: Low profile (you save maybe an inch of depth by not having the table part)

Inexpensive: (IE 1/2 the cost)

Cons: Without the fold down table feature....the pouches are hard to thread without removing the panel first. With the fold down feature...you would be able to easily access the back side for threading pouches. At least with our rip away pouches....you would only have to do it once.

I'd say....stick with the fold down tables.

I’d pay for a smaller key fob. Finally don’t have to stick it in the dash and they give us a brick!?!?
How about a wrap for the hard top? Any color you want....make it tan to match the tan soft top they may never ship.
I hope bartact adds more options for the JL’s or someone else learns to build a seat cover as good as theirs.

The one jtopsusa.com has for the JK would work for me!

#1: The home phone number of the person at Jeep who decided not to make the auto-down windows not auto UP too!
#2. A fix for the lack of auto down windows (that exist on other Jeep vehicles)
#3 Haynes manual competitor that releases JL manual in January of 2019 (vs Haynes which is looking like 2020)
#4 hub centric wheels other than what AEV will do.
#5 tires that actually measure the size they say they are. 35s are really 34s.
#6 a 3/4 in lift bracket for the Maximus roof rack so you can easily attach a RTT bracket.


Wait......#1 is not a thing to be made.....but....
