Accidental Jeep owner

Well, here's the deal. Ended up getting my soon-to-be ex husband's jeep cause it is in my name so it went with me when we seperated. Problem is, I am Jeep illiterate! It is a nice jeep, a 2009 Wrangler 2 door soft top with no customizations. And I really want to customize! I really want rails on the side because I think it looks cooler that way. I feel like I have a generic Jeep if that makes sense to anyone. I mean, why have a Jeep if you can't do it up, right? Plus, I am on a tiny budget so any customizations will have to be in small increments. Thanks! I really love my Jeep and want to treat it right

Welcome to WF.

Might want to spend some time reading the forums to learn about the Jeep, mods, etc.

As much to get an idea of what you'd like, as it is to give you time to sort out your personal situation.

You might just find that the Jeep becomes a better negotiating tool for you, than it will be a project.
