I do love my AEV Savagre rims with the Duratracs, but I really like when I am able to run with my Roughshod Offroad tube doors on the best! They just stand out. Now under the hood, my dual battery setup is the bomb, but no one ever gets to see it but me! Trek Armor seat covers,Stryker HID off road lights,winch,AEV tire carrier, so many things are my favourites! The list is almost scary, but they all make it what it is, unique, and I love it.

I was looking at those shades, and actually ordered one, then I saw where Trek Armor is coming out with they're new one, and cancelled the Spiderweb one and ordered the Trek Armor. May not get it for this summer, but I will hopefully be able to put it to good use next year.

What did you need for this? I went to home link site but do not see anything like your setup?

I had to really think about this one. Putting a Eaton trutrac in the front and rear differential tops my list followed by the winch and Rancho xl 9000 shocks

If you do a forum search there are several threads on how to install a Homelink opener in the Wrangler.

A quick, cheap and easier way is to do like some of us did. Wrap your opener remote in a plastic bag and zip it up inside the roll bar insulation above the door. Press on the insulation at that spot and your garage door opens. Completely hidden and it works well.

You just need a $30 homelink adapter with rolling codes from eBay. Mine came off an old Chrysler Seabring visor. I wired mine to the power that goes to the mirror in my '13. This controls my neighborhood gate and garage door. I couldn't fit all that in my roll bar pad.

There is a thread on the forum on how to do it. I am on mobile and can't link it.

I haven't done a ton to mine (spare tire cover, hitch cover, grill guard, some KC lights, floor liners) but I think so far the CB is my fave mod. Can't wait to try putting my remote in the roll bar, great idea !!

Outside my winch inside of my AEV bumper, it really pulls the front end together, to kinda quote Big Lebowski!

Inside Boom Mats, cools the top and improves the audio sound.

AEV 3 1/2" Dual Sport SC suspension lift w/Bilstein shocks (included Procal Programmer). This is on my new 2013 Wrangler Sport. 2nd would be my Toyo MTs on American Racing rims. Best riding 4WD I've ever owned and I've owned: (1) '78 CJ5, no lift; (2) '84 Ford Bronco II, no lift, POS!; (3) 00 Dodge Ram, 2" Body Lift, Goodyear 33s; (4) '01 Dodge Durango, no lift; (5) '03 Grand Cherokee Laredo (can't remember the brand of lift but it was to fit 33s on it; (6) '04 Dodge Ram, no lift; (7) 07 Wrangler w/2 1/2" Terraflex lift, and (8) 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sport. I swear, my new JK rides better now than it did stock. As you can see, I've owned a few 4X4s but this will be the last 4WD I'll own. Next up will be a Catback and CAI, then a programmer for power/fuel economy.

Lack of Homelink is probably my biggest pet peeve when it comes to Wranglers. It is probably the next mod I'll do.

I just unzipped my roll bar pad and put my garage door clicker in there and zipped it back up. Unless you know its there its basically invisible.

My clicker won't fit. Also have a neighborhood gate opener. Now I just use two different buttons on my Homelink.

It's hard to say what my favorite is just yet. The whole jeep thing is still new to me and can't get enough of it. I guess I can just say being able to drive with the doors and top off is awesome. Trying to figure out what to buy next

My best looking mods are my rims and tires. But the mod that I have come to appreciate the most, especially this summer, is my SpiderWebShade. I literally cannot ride around in this heat topless without it. I did take it off last weekend, for one day, but it went right back on. It is so hot without it! Sitting at a stoplight is the worst with the sun just baking down on you.

i already contributed to this thread earlier...however, i need to add my viair 400p to the list. Its so much more convenient than driving to a gas station and waiting in line after a wheeling trip to air up.

i replaced the factory side steps on my '13 JKU Sahara with some used rubicon rails off an '09. cleaned them up and sprayed on some rattle can bedliner. turned out great! my next step was gonna be ACE sliders but i'm liking the clean look of the rubi rails so much i might just keep it as is. the rubi rails still offer good protection, right?

Wheels and tires. Completely changes the look of the Jeep.

ACE sliders and Rubi Rails are second. Safari Straps third.
