Anything you want that's the glory of it. Congrats on your new Jeep.

Drive it stock for awhile, just to see how awesome it is. Plus, that'll give you some time to do a little research...what people put on their Jeeps might not suit you for yours.

One thing you can do that costs nothing: Turn your rearview mirror upsided down; you'll have a better view out the back.

Thanks yea I mean I have a few things in mind, but jeeps are way different than other vehicles and I just didn't know if there was something I really needed.

Have you driven it at night yet? If so, what did you think of the headlights?

The headlights pretty much suck. Most of us end up buying replacements, such as:

Rallylight/Hella headlight upgrade install

Some other stuff that may interest you:

Best 2012 JK Floor Liners?
Cheapest, Coolest Mods!
Aftermarket short antenna??
Best 2012 JK Floor Liners?
grab handle recommendations?


Congrats on the new rig, man.

If you have a wife who also has access to the checking account, you'll want to begin laying down the baseline for a dissociative identity disorder. It'll provide decent cover for the depraved spending you'll need to explain in the near future.

Also, I'd start selling drugs to produce revenue you can keep off the books.

Welcome to WF.
Seriously? Just turn the mirror upside down and that works?

Jeeps are like guns-- NEED is not part of the equation!!
If you want to go offroad- It will go off road as is-- in places you never dreamed of going. It will go some places easier with some mods. If you are doing it for looks-- what ever you want it to look like!!
What you do to your Jeep is only limited by the depth of your pocket book!!

Happy Jeeping

congrats on the new JK and welcome to the forum! there's plenty of information around here on cheap DIY mods to get you started.

as many have said.... leave it stock for now, so you have time to make up your mind and then change it 48 times before you do anything...

Welcome! Enjoy the Jeep as is til the type of wheelin (mud,rocks,hills,light trails, not so light trails...etc) you enjoy tells you what mods will best suit you. Under armor is never a bad idea.
