What are the Must Haves Accessories for New Jeep?

OK.....I'm probably not the typical Jeep Owner. I've always wanted a "fun" Jeep to drive around in the summer to my sand volleyball games, softball, baseball, etc...... I'm basically an athletic chic that likes to have have fun, play loud music and tailgate, etc.... I bought a 2012 Saraha Unlimted 4 Door. What are the must haves for accessories for convenience, storage, tailgating, etc... So far I'm thinking
1) Lange Hard Top Removal System - since I can't do it myself
2) Best Top Cover - To quickly put on Jeep in case of rain at game
3) Jeep Coolers, Towels, etc...
4) Window Roll Storage Bag by Clover

I'm looking for items that make my life easier owning this Jeep!

Anything else????? THANKS!

Probably start with if the budget is there to actually run a soft top in the non snowy months and get a tuffy storage box for the back to keep things locked up that have any value that u might leave in the jeep.

My first purchase for my 2011 JK was the ACE Rock Sliders (ACE JK Rock Sliders (2 Door)). They look really nice, provide good protection and second as a step.

If you have a hard top, I'd suggest looking into a bikini/summer top for the summer (that's next on my list). If you don't want to go as far as a bikini/summer top, you can get an emergency top for under $100 for quick coverage in case of a downpour.

If you plan on offroading I suggest upgrading tires/wheels and possibly getting a lift. I'd also suggest getting a sway bar disconnect (also on my list).

It wouldn't be a bad idea to upgrade your radio deck to a marine/water proof deck. I've already gone through one deck due to rain. I've also upgraded some speakers to waterproof speakers.

If you plan on taking off your doors a lot, you may want to relocate your mirrors off the doors and onto the Jeep (Lange Originals 023-110 - Lange Originals Quick Mirror II for 07-12 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec)

Those are just a few ideas I have yet to do/have done for my new Jeep, hope it helps.

For a tailgater, I would suggest a fold down table that mounts to the inside of the swingate and trailer hitch and hitch basket. This way you can carry all of your party supplies. Also, pick yourself up a safari/bikini top, sunscreen, first aid kit, and good sunglasses. Lastly, keep the number of a cab company or get AAA so you can get home when you party a little too hard.

Have Fun!!
