live_slow Take-off Rubi "rock rails" could be had for cheap too, but they don't offer the "step" like a take-off Sahara part would. So it depends on protection or step. Both dress up the look.

There's a whole thread on plasti-dipping parts or interior bits, that can look cool.

If you're going to run topless often, you can pick up a cheap Smittybuilt soft top storage boot for like 50USD. It really dresses up the top when folded down, makes it look clean, in my opinion.

Another cheap thing to have around if pulling the doors off and putting them back on is a roll of painter's tape. This way, when you put the doors back on, you can cover the area around the hing with painters tape so that as you're guiding the doors back in, you don't bugger up the hinge.

I'd get some mud on it though. It's free, except for the gas you burn, and it is a great accessory.

Correct.

And Antenna X, I live downtown in a major North American city. I get perfect reception in my other vehicles, and I did with my stock aerial. Sorry, but while your 13" aerial looks good it does impact reception.

I ran a flipped mirror for like 3-4 weeks after reading it from here. It took me that long to realize that all it did was block the pretty Jeep grill sticker

Plus, the '13 mirror has a power cord and map lights.

+1

I'd also pop into the JK pictures threads check out other peoples rig's and see what exterior features catch your eye!

koochiee A good cheap upgrade is a gas cover. They come in various colors, styles, and locking or non-locking.
