Lots of things. It all depends on what you want. I started with Ace rock sliders. Little things like grill inserts, tail light guards, shorty antenna, decals are just the beginning. Look around and have fun with it.

Congrats on the new Jeep! The best part about owning one is making it your own. Check out our Exterior and Interior mods for a place to start. We have everything from vinyl and trim to bumpers and lights.

Let me know what you see something you like and I'll get you a quote!

RIGID INDUSTRIES LED Lights. Lots and lots of lumens and lux (ie Hyper Spots on A-pillars, dually spots in factory fog light area, diffused for reverse lights)

3" suspension lift and 35" tires is a good place to start!

A good first-aid kit and fire extinguisher are generally must-haves. Nice thing is JKs have a lot of "wasted" storage space on the interior - the rollbar. And there are tons of neat rollbar-mounts for things like flashlights, fire extinguishers, etc.

I also installed these, because they're neat, and more storage space..



Also, what infotainment system do you have? If you've just got the 130, the upgrade to a 430 RBZ is one of the best things I've done..

Smittybilt 5662324 - Smittybilt G.E.A.R. Tailgate Cover for 07-14 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

It does require drilling holes in the gate, but otherwise it's very straight-forward and easy and makes for some good storage.

If you like the grill inserts you may also look into Fuel or RBP grill replacements. There is some modding but it would definately make it unique.
