No skimping here...What modification do you feel is worth it's weight in gold and why?

I will start..

For me it is KC lights. You pay a premium for these but, until you have put your hands on them, you dont understand what a work of art they are.

I’ll stick with the little stuff that really makes a difference for me.

Redline hood struts. For 99$ you never have to dick with that prop rod again.

Fumoto drain valve, makes oil changes painless.

Window tint, because Texas heat sucks

I bought the Jeep Sport to use on trails- for the type of trails I want to do it was essential for me to have better/bigger tires and some lift, Rubicon takeoffs were perfect for this. After doing some trails I've discovered that mud flaps are essential to keep the rocks off of the doors and door hinges. I also feel like if you are going to remote places you should install the best main battery you can buy and at least disconnect the little battery.

This sounds like a really good idea, I have to check into these.

Having bought ourJLUR “Tilly” in February I’ve just started modding. Trying to be methodical and not flush $$ down the drain doing something only to change it a little later. Learned from my previous Jeeps. Best mod I have gotten so far is not even a mod. It’s the Toplift Pro. I practically giggle every time I can take off and put on my hard top by myself AND park Tilly under it in my garage. Though getting lift n 35’s next week so this opinion may change ;)

There are two for me. The Bestop Sunrider for Hardtop has been absolutely the one mod I have enjoyed most. I love the convertible feel while still having the hardtop on. Second is a dead pedal. That just makes driving on longer trips so much more comfortable.

Brawlee LED Cargo Light.

I splurged for the RGB version, cause why not? I love when a company has really put a lot of effort into thinking through the entire install process, and this fits that bill. The disconnect and 12v adapter system are so well done. They even provide white and black cable holders to match the hard top and interior plastic.

And it throws a great amount of light.

Premium lighting is definitely a good one, I have Diode Dynamics products worth every penny, I almost upgraded my pro fogs to max fogs while labor day sale is on, I like the options from KC but a fellow jeeper bought some Diode lights and I was impressed.

The CMM offroad mirrors are another great mod, I had tried a few different set ups but I never really liked them.

I have redline hood struts in the ups truck showing up any minute now, I'm sure I'll agree with everyone who loves them right after they are installed

Hood struts are on and I dont understand why they are not a factory thing.

The center console organizer is worth every penny, and should have come from the factory.
My Ram mount phone holder for the top center of the dash gets used every day and I love it.
My Mopar lift has been worth every penny. I’ve never lifted a vehicle before, but knew I wanted my Jeep lifted. I have no other lift to compare it to, so I’m not going to debate what lift is best. All I can say is that every day I love my lifted Jeep and have no regrets with the Mopar lift so far.

None, no really absolutely none, you won't get one penny more for a modded rig than a stock one if you trade in. As for mods I've enjoyed the most, that would be fixing the woefully inadequate Alpine garbage so I could actually hear the tunes.

Oh god the center organizer, I forgot that wasn’t OEM. 100% worth it
