The amount of modifications you can add to your Wrangler is mind-blowing. So, to keep it quick and easy, we have hand-picked a list of 12 really cool things to do to a Jeep Wrangler, and trust us, we know a thing or two about Jeep Wranglers and off-roading...
1. LED Lights / Light Bars
This is definitely a must-have for any Jeep! A powerful light bar will help you blaze through any trail at night. Combined with some LED's, you will have a very powerful lighting system.

These are an essential piece to the puzzle, don't let yourself or your friends track mud and dirt into your expensive Jeep! Invest in some quality Floor Liners, it makes keeping your interior clean a breeze and they make plenty of different shapes and sizes available to protect all parts of your rig.
3. Recovery Gear
We've all been there. You've planned an AWESOME trip to your favorite trail with a few of your Off-Road buddies, everything is on time and you're all having a blast, when suddenly a Jeep gets stuck... Parties over, now we're all scratching our head wondering how we can get the Jeep unstuck!
Instead of letting this stress you out, invest in some heavy duty Recovery Gear. Specifically, some Rhino Recovery Gear. (yes, we ain't afraid to brag!) Our recovery gear ranges from kinetic recovery ropes and recovery tow straps, to traction boards and survival shovels - all of the essentials that you need for off-roading can be found at Rhino USA
4. Grab Handles
Your passengers will thank you for this! Grab Handles are exactly what the name states, when you're making a sharp turn in your Jeep these are what your passengers can grab onto. Plus, they're extremely affordable and add that extra expert flare to your Jeep. They are easily attachable to your roll bar and they last a lifetime!
5. Fender Flares
Adding some Wide Fender Flares will protect your Jeep from all that mud caused by your tires spinning. Sometimes the trails are muddy, and these bad boys will definitely shield you from the worst conditions. Almost forgot, these also prevent paint chips from all of the debris flying up towards your vehicle! A great investment and a great style choice!
6. Rock Rails
The great outdoors aren't made for Jeeps, that's why you must make your Jeep for the great outdoors! Sharp rocks will damage the exterior of your Jeep, put some Rock Rails on the sides of your vehicle so that the rocks hit the rails before touching your paint job. ARB sells some pretty awesome "Rock Sliders" that do the job perfectly.

7. Seat Covers
Whether your seats are new or used, they need to be protected. If you're like me, you'll be removing your roof every once in a while. Well, Jeep seats just weren't designed to maintain quality when exposed to elements like rain, wind, and sun. That's why we're putting seat covers on this list, we think these make a great long-term investment for any Jeep owner.
8. Lift Kits
Wait, we titled this article "Coolest" but listed Lift Kits as #8?! Everybody knows that a lift kit will indeed make your Jeep look cooler. But aside from that, they actually play a very important role in your off-roading adventure! Giving your Jeep that extra height will drastically help you drive over rocks, boulders, and any natural terrain that gets in your way.
9. Roof Rack
Installing a high quality roof rack has numerous benefits. We prefer using it to transport our cooler, toolbox, and recovery gear. However, these usually have a 300lbs weight limit so you can expect to transport anything you want within reason.
Although expensive, KC Hilites carries a rad Roof Rack...
When it comes to winching, WARN is the leader. Installing a winch on your Jeep can seriously come in handy when you find yourself in a pickle! Order one of WARN's heavy duty winching systems today and forget about ever finding yourself stuck in the mud again.
11. Entry Guards
Kind of funny right? These may not be the coolest jeep accessory, but they are incredibly useful when it comes to shielding your paint against minor scuffs and scratches. Think about it, your transfer case and gas tank have better protection than your door frames... Pick up these affordable entry guards today and protect your lower door area.
12. Soft Tops
This will be one of your hardest questions, should you go with a soft top or not? Keep in mind that soft tops are a part of Jeep history, these allow you to simply unzip the window or pull the top down entirely. However, hard tops also have their benefits! Providing more security, hard tops are much more durable and a little more on the quiet side.
Weighing the benefits of a Soft Top VS Hard Top will have to be a separate article, but we'll go ahead and link a good soft top anyway.
Tricking your Jeep out will make it look better, drive better, and above all else make driving it a lot more fun! It's probably best to start small and add a few modifications at a time as these mods can get a little pricey. (We know your wife won't be too happy about that!). All jokes aside, Jeeps are AWESOME and we're excited to have helped you on your adventure!
