Common sense mods

I'm fairly new to the forum and was wondering what everyone's thoughts are on the most cost effective/common sense mods that you can do to a 2012 rubi. Through some research, rerouting breather tubes seems like a must. I appreciate the feedback.

Flip your rearview mirror upside down. Gets it outta the way looking through your windshield and gives you a better view through the thicket of headrests/spare tire in the back.

Not really a mod, I guess, but still...

14" antenna (got mine in black) from Antenna-X (forum vendor).

Grab handles for driver/passenger side roll bar.

Headlight upgrade! Search for some of the many good threads on this topic. I just installed some Cibie headlights and a wiring upgrade from Daniel Stern but you can simply swap out the bulbs if cost is an issue....In terms of cost effectiveness, how much is your safety and that of others worth? Interior grab handles are another good idea, my family is grateful for them LOL.

Rubicons don't need much, if any, modifications. Maybe some off-roading lights, but they can get expensive. I just ordered some "oh shhhhh" handles for the roll bar ($20 on quadra)... They help a lot.

No blinding at all, they are not that bright. I had a hard time findind something attached to the lights. Didn't want to tear dash apart so when I was about to give up I found a 6 pin harness going nowhere. I mean plugged into nothing. I tested it and sure enough it was attached to lights. It's almost right under the cup holder toward the front a little. No patent I like using others ideas so I give mine. Thanks
