$50 or less gift

Hey guys, so I'm trying to figure out something to get my dad for the upcoming holidays but nothing's coming to mind. I was wondering if you all might have any ideas for less than $50 that I could get for his Jeep. It's a bone stock 2013 JKU.

Thanks!

A gas cap cover makes a nice visual impact for under $50. Also, wrap around tail light covers or a set of angry eyes headlight covers look cool and ring in at $50.

Checkout extreme terrain, there's a section now for gifts under $100 and I'm sure you can find something cool for under $50.

VDP Roll Top Dash Storage Console - I love this thing. I've done a few little tweeks here and there - slush mats, fuel door, tail-gate storage . . but this one has been the most appreciated and usefull. Keeps my fastrak, sunglasses, other small items I may need in a pinch for the day or trip.

How about a set of Bartact paracord grab handles? The ones that I have are by far one of the best (and cheapest) things I've added to my Jeep. They come in various colors too

It got demoted to the rear cargo area and ultimately trashed

Something that might come in handy, Recovery strap to keep in the back.

^^^^^ This

Great product to store his phone and will easily be able to see your calling while not looking down to find his phone and taking his eyes off the road.

I like this, a lot. Ended up getting it because I figure now that he has the stuff to get him unstuck he can go and get it stuck because that's half the fun.

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone

Oh, I don't have any such problems with mine, and I had it now almost 2 years.

Though, the sunglasses pocket is behind the front flap, not the zipper. So, taking them in and out is pretty easy with just one hand.

And it says "Jeep" on it.

Glad you liked the Trail Ready kit. Here are a few other relatively inexpensive basic off-road gifts you could get him for other occasions.

ViAir 90P Portable Compressor - so he can air back up after airing down for off-road

Since he still has plastic bumpers, carrying a Hi-Lift Lift-Mate wheel lifter would allow someone with a jack to help him with it if they didn't have one of these. Sort of like carrying a recovery strap so others can help you.

Quick Disconnects using stock links
Two of these and one of these
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfdwVTJcWIU

If he's close enough, maybe a membership in the Muddy Buddys Wrangler Club

Just some thoughts about helping him to get off-road...
