Recovery straps, d-rings, come-along, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, 12v air compressor, tire deflator...

Take your pick, most under $100

If you havent already done it and if you still have the stock bumper you could take off the milkjugs. Thats next on my list of easy mods.

Mounting up a fire extinguisher to the roll bar is always a cool idea.

Could make some grab handles for the roll bar.

Buying some recovery gear is always a good and relatively inexpensive idea.

Possibly getting and mounting a high lift jack if you think you'll need/use one.

New headlights?

LED lights for your gauges are cheap and look cool.

Painting your fender flares if they're faded.



Just a few ideas but theres a ton of stuff you can do cheap.
