The best thing I did was Herculiner on the floor. Cost about $80 Also, I made a switch so that I don't have to pull the fuse for the door dome lights switch every time i take the doors off. That was like $15.

A pair or two of grab handles is always useful. They run $10 - $30 per pair. Fire extinguisher and holder. New stereo and speakers.

If you still have stock front and/or rear bumpers you can take off the ugly milk jugs and replace with factory end caps like these:

Jeep Wrangler TJ FRONT & REAR Bumper End Cap Set, Mopar | eBay

Part numbers for both: MOPAR # 55078138AA & 55078139AA (each)

Pull your visors out of their mounts and swap driver to passenger, vice versa. This puts the warning labels up so you don't see them.

I had those clips, but someone broke into my Jeep, stole my first aid kit and sunglass clips, left my CD's, Tow Strap and hitch receiver!

Custom shifter knobs are a nice touch.

I just mounted an ammo can between the front seats of my TJ. I also have one under the hood full of tools and a strap.
