Did the grille inserts mentioned in this thread yesterday and I love them
One tip that I have that I'm not sure if it was mentioned on this or the other threads about the grille inserts, the 1"x1" zip tie holders are just a hair too big to go in between the grill slats on a JK (not sure if it is different on other models)
If you trim them down on one side a little they will fit fine
This cost me about $20 since I bought spray paint to paint mine purple
The plastic gutter guard material worked great

A couple of quick, cheap mods for me:
Steering wheel cover and Daystar dashboard tray
Home-made wood shift knobs
I've also installed the Drake fuel door and "bobbed" my front bumper with the Rough Country bumper caps.
And because of suggestions in this thread, I removed the "Jeep" lettering from the front and drilled holes for water to drain from the mirrors. I didn't like the rear-view mirror flip, because I was only seeing about 20 feet behind me. (I must be too short for that mod to work.)

Edit: Actually it's a federal law. Just looked it up.

|14Sport||Definitely not. I drilled mine and when I washed it water was coming out the hole.|

|TJGoff||Drilled the mirrors on my '14 JKUR. No water. Did they solve the problem? It's been raining quite a bit here in Myrtle Beach.|

Ok, so I wanted to add fishing rod holders to my front bumber but as I plan to replace the bumper with a narrow width in the relative short future, I did not want to spend very much.
I went to a local tackle shop and purchased for $14 dollars, a Berkley Rod Holder. It is made out of plastic and the 4 mounting holes line up perfectly with the holes in a license plate. Being from NJ, I need front and rear plates so I went out to Lowe's and purchased 4, 3.5 inch long stainless steel lag screws and mounted the rod holder between the license plate and the factory bumper. I tried out my fresh and salt water rods and they fit well. I still have about 12 inches on clearance between the bottom of the ron handle and the ground.

For cheap Mod #2, I purchased 2.5 yards of Phifertex Vinyl-encapsulated Polyester Woven Mesh from Seattle Fabrics. It is an outdoor rated shade material. I am going to make my own (hopefully) shade cloth cover for my 4dr. I purchased grommets and bungy cables for mounting.
Cost so far is $33.75 for the material, $6.00 for the grommet kit, and $8.00 for the bungies.
I will post pictures of this when it is done.

Hello all, has anyone tried making the paracord grab handles?
I've seen a ton of different ways to do them online and I'm wondering just how difficult is it to make them?

Fuel door cover
Still considering the snap in grill mod..
Not sure about drilling mirror hole on 13 jku.
Still considering stock cd player replacement.
Going to make a dolly for hard top. does anyone keep these outside? Our garage is already tight.
I'm wondering if anyone has recommendations for all necessary tools to keep in the car? Starting with 40 torx for removing hardtop?
Fyi, my first jeep, ive had it for 3 days! so glad I stumbled on this thread.

Newbee seeks your help
Hi Guys, I am a new bee both with a first time Jeep Wrangler 2-door 2013 - Sport trim. So everything on the JK is stock. And here on the forum.
I live in Suriname, South America, next to French Guyana and Brazil.
We don't have any Jeep dealers nor can you buy here anything like wheels, tires, etc.
So I am depending on your advice. First purchases I want to do in Florida are 16" or 17" wheels. Tires 33" x 12.5".
First question: Which brands-model will fit the JK 2013 without any lift? If I need to lift it, what specs?
Thanks guys, HenriSu

I like the USB connector on the end of the 12v plug. So you can charge your phone without another outlet.
Lots of wires because I added the isolator into the mix. I haven't really cleaned them up yet, so for now I have a nest of wires tucked in front of my shifter.
But yeah, you can play your music and make calls through your stereo, the mic is good enough where I haven't had a complaint on hearing me (top up, of course.) Siri works too by holding down the mic button.
I needed to buy an isolator because of the noise:
