Im waiting on my 19 JLUR and just realized I've probably spent over 1700 on stuff for it already and I havent even received it yet!!

So Far:

Toplift - Hard top remover
organizer for storage box - From amazon other users have purchased.
netting - Dirty Dog
sun shades - DirtyDog
grab handles - GPCA
foot pegs - GraBars
mirrors - cmm
Gear bag for glove box - BadAss gear bag
Bottle opener for license plate (I dont even drink)
Sunglass holder - Rugged ridge
Emergency seatbelt cutter - statgear.

So how about you? How much did you spend before you got your jeep?

Can we do a cost calculation on time to research / dream? I've wanted a Jeep since I was a teenager in high school!

That is a closely guarded secret, unknown expensive items hidden in the shop. Thank goodness I'm home during delivery time in the day. It saves a lot of uncomfortable questions "Do you really need that? How much was that? etc." Only kidding, she is a willing partner in the Jeep project. ADD front and rear bumpers, Warn Xeon 10s platinum winch, and Rigid 20" light bar.

If I count time spent on looking at stuff i'd be broke. I did however score a major savings. Buddy of mine is going to buy me the Mopar beadlocks at 20 bucks over cost so im saving like 500 bucks for a set of 5.

I think I had spent spent close to 8-10k. Had piles of parts, lifts, tires/wheels (sent to dealer), skid plates, gears, alien shade, bumper, winch, the list goes on. My wife’s Jeep is being picked up tomorrow and all I’ve bought for her is some 37s. She’ll get a 3.5” lift too though

I bought my Warn Winch at 4 wheel parts. They gave me a 5% veteran discount. Warn products are price protected so list is it--if the price is lower the warranty my not be in effect from a non authorized dealer.
