In San Antonio (copied from "new user")

because i thought this'd be more helpful (as its local...well, more local)

my 01 wrangler sport, purchased in 06, is now paid off...

Since I no longer have an auto payment, i was looking to put money into the vehicle.

could use some suggestions, however, as far as where to find quality, but inexpensive pieces for the vehicle.

Plans:
-Hitch
-bike rack
-bikini top and cover for rear seat/cargo area
-...suggestions?

not much for off-roading, but i do like to be outdoors (cycling, camping, hiking, etc)

anything pointing me in the right direction would be incredibly helpful

For a Bike Rack, get one that has a Swing-Away/Swing-Down system. It'll be easier to deal with when Loading/Unloading.

For a Bikini Top, look at these. I've got one, and it's FANTASTIC! Installs in minutes, and your Hard Top/Soft Top will go right over it, without having to remove it. I have the SW1 JK-2D Model.

Best of Luck!

Cheers!

Hitch: the "standard" ones from UHaul, etc., are fine, but they will hang down pretty low. The fancier (but way more expensive) versions integrate the hitch into the bumper.

Bike Rack: You should at least look at the kind that attach to the spare tire. They seem convenient and relatively inexpensive. The big trick with bike racks these days is that so many bikes have "weird" tubes that make it tough to hang them on a rack.

Bikini and cover: Bestop calls the rear cover a "duster." You can combine it with a Bikini and a Windjammer (part that goes vertically behind your seat) to make a pretty slick halftop. That's just what our company offers. Obviously there are lots of oter great choices out there. It's part of the fun, getting your Jeep customized exactly the way you want.

+1. I bought the Allen Bike rack from Academy (~$60). I have run the jeep @ 75mph with my 28lb 1995 model schwinn on it without any issue. as long as you find a good spot ( I chose the bottom of the tailgate) to attach the lower straps this thing is not coming off.

Good place to get a hitch

If you are low on funds I would recommend pick and pull. It takes some time to find the right hitch but when you do it will be pretty cool to pull t off the vehicle and add it to yours. Especially when it only costs around $20. Just make sure you measure your mounting holes carefully. Otherwise, you can buy a htch that will not fit.
