600 bucks to spend. Help :)

I had my 2012 2dr sahara for a year now. Sold my 96 camry a few days ago and i feel like treating my jeep to a few hundred bucks. Ive been on quadratec for a while now and I really don't know how to spend 600 bucks. Im only looking for cosmetics.

I would really appreciate some help on what I can get to make my jeep hotter. Im not interested in lifts, tyres, wheels, lights and chrome or anything over 150 bucks. I would like to get 4 or 5 things.

only add-on so far are
-antenna x
-grab handles

So far only headlight eyebrow trim rings in black caught my eye. Tuma has them on and i thought theyre very sweet lookin

I really love my jeep as it is but would like some minor add-ons.

any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

I got a fully white jeep if that would help.


thanks!

Mopar fuel door
Mopar door sills
Drake grille inserts (black)
Vector Off-Road UFOs
Mopar black Jeep emblem for your hood

Those are some cosmetic mods I did to mine the first couple days I had mine. In fact, I had all that stuff already ordered and waiting for my Jeep to get built. lol

Oh, I'm glad you brought that up. I meant to mention in my first reply that you should shop around. You'll find some better prices on some of those things elsewhere. Shop around and stretch those dollars out. Qtec is good for some things, but not all items are cheaper there.

I found my door sills and fuel door on eBay through Steve White Motors. The black Jeep emblem was also on eBay for ~$10.

The Vector UFOs were direct from Vector OR.

I also like the cowl covers by Rugged Ridge on white Jeeps (mine, too!). And they serve a purpose.

I know you want a bunch of little things, but if I had $600, I'd get a Trektop NX or a front bumper.

the plan was to get the mopar sun rider a few days back. but with shipping and cutoms i'll be paying about 1800. so the whole soft top idea is off the table. and i really don't like the bestop ones.

The Mopar ones are made by Bestop, they just cost more. Do you mean you don't like the Trektop versions? Regardless, yes, 1800 is ludacris.

You could send the $600 to me to subsidize my GT500 blower upgrade fund.
