I am so happy to announce that I just bought my first Jeep. A 2012 Black Jeep Unlimited Rubicon. I could not be happier and could barely sleep last night. My wife and kids are as happy as I am (but manly b/c they don't have to listen to me talk about getting a Jeep anymore).
So, now that I have my first Jeep, I want to do some "minor" tweaks to the vehicle and would like some help:
1) Where can I buy one of the those black "rubber looking" antenna's and what is the exact model I need?
2) Should I replace the front headlight bulbs? I think I read somewhere that the stock one's are really not that bright. If so, what is the exact light bulb I need for this model?
3) Any suggestions for new front and rear bumpers? I want something way more durable than what is stock, but I don't need anything seriously hardcore. Also, at this time I don't think I'll be putting a winch on the Jeep.
Congrats! Now your wife and kids will start hearing about your mod list...I even have the wife coming home from working saying I saw this bumper today For headlights, it's personal opinion whether to change or not. Lots of people change the bulb or upgrade completely...the stock work fine for me. Bumpers...yeah, 6 months and I still can't settle on one!
Headlights: This guy is a decent source for info and products if you can get a hold of him. Daniel Stern Lighting Consultancy and Supply There are other places that sell the lights or similar. Just do a quick search in the forum.
Bumpers: It's all about preference and function. There are tons of options. Check out what others have done here and you can almost always find a vendor running a special of some sort.
Congrats on the JKU! I still have a couple of months and am bouncing off the walls.
Does anyone know where I can get a Cargo net to put in the trunk area of my 2012 Unlimited? I see there are 4 "hooks" to attach a cargo net, but can't find a net. Looking to get something to hold things like groceries in place when driving.
