Halogens FTW. I guess it’s perspective and not being night blind. I am getting older though. $300 BD Sport Wide Cornering lights and adjusting the Halogens where they need to be covers the bases.

I don't think you could have one without the other?
i mean. I guess. But flexin‘ a sub is like flexin’ a Cayman. Its the entry level that no one is really impressed by. But “hey just so y’all know, I got a $10k watch” in a “jeep mod” thread is….well.

it is a nice daily piece, though…enjoy it.

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.
Do you have a link for this center console doohickey?

I've been looking for the Original OCD Organizer. Where did you find it? Chinese crap on eBay is all I can find :mad:

anytime I see a submariner I always think its likely a rep...I think its the most produced replica out there. Speaking of replicas tho... there are some dang good ones and I'm not talking about Canal St junk.

It's almost trivial but my most cost effective mod was adding a $19.95 cargo net across the roll bars behind the sound bar, secured to the sound bar contour by two additional straps around the sound bar.

On top of that cargo net I keep two camp chairs, two stuffable fleece blankets, and a camp rug with room to spare. All in space that would otherwise go completely unused and it's up high enough to not impede the view from the rear view mirror. Like having a lot of stuff while the cargo area is still "empty". It's also a very convenient place to hang a battery powered camp light and anything else that needs to be hung in easy reach at camp.

Definitely the most useful 20 bucks I've spent on the Jeep.
Trying to envision this but a picture would be great,

Pulling the underhood soundliner, the horse shoe engine cover(?) and raisie the hood hinges. Stops engine temperture spikes and allows underhoodheat to naturally escape without running the fan after engine shut down. Baking under hood heat is not a great thing unless you are warming burritos while camping. Cost for hardware is less than $10.

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.
I’ll second the Bestop Sunrider.

Best non-factory mod worth every penny: Tazer Mini!

For $330, I have:
  1. Disabled ESS
  2. Reset the tire size, twice
  3. Activated the halos
  4. Disabled TravelLink and those annoying Weather Alerts
  5. Lowered the TPMS threshold
If you consider each dealer visit is $125, that's already $750 worth of savings...and counting.
