What to do with $500?

Ok, I'm going to have $500 coming my way shortly and I want your opinion. What should I buy for my 2012 JKU. I already have a procomp 3.5 inch lift with 325/65R18 Goodyear duratec on stock wheels. Along with that a Garvin safari rack, a quadretec 10000 lbs winch and an AEV module to calibrate all the changes. I'm going to for the overlander idea. What are your suggestions?

If you have to ask what to buy with it, don't buy anything. Just hang on to the money, browse the forums and quadratic, and you will find something you really want before too long. That said, if it were me it would be ACE rock rails and A-Pillar lights or the Trektop NX.

I vote lights - if I had spare change I'd be buying more lights.

IMO... Ace rock rails are a great value and work hard for your Jeep. Look good too.

If I had the money I'd buy a tire carrier to hold my heavier spare tire, either Tera flex or Maximus.

The consensus looks to be rock rails and "A" pillar lights. Sounds good to me. For those asking for the money you are a Damn fool.

As nice as A pillar lights are, I think that's one mod you can really cheap out on. The Dually LEDs are great, but how often do you actually run them? I may be 99% street queen(15k total a year) so I still wheel a lot but I never wheel at night. The only time I use my pillar lights is actually on the road and technically it's not legal. I just use them as high beams. Most people don't do that tho and they end up being mostly for aesthetics so before you drop lots of money on nice lights, ask yourself how much you'd use them and if you'd rather spend money on other things

I agree with this completely. I got a set of KC day lighters and mounted them to my a pillars for Christmas and have yet to use them. Now that I'm looking back on it, I wish I would have asked for something else rather then the lights. I would Definately think it through before you buy lights.

I agree too. Thats why I said that's what I'd get. I wheel at night quite a bit & every time I'd say, 'damn I need some off road lights'. But I also think a lot of the mods people do aren't necessarily used but may be more for looks - which is cool too.

On a jku that's at best an $850-$900 upgrade.
