I been doing some cosmetic things to my Jeep and I was wondering if you know any free or cheap things. New shift knobs, synthetic oil, dash board hula girls? What kind of cheap or free things can you do?:D

If you like the outdoors, I would suggest getting a rock knob shifter(if your jeep is a stick). I've had mine for a few months now and love it. If your not a fan of the actual rock shift knobs, they have many others to choose from. Just adds a little more "you" to your jeep.

Removing the milk jugs like he said up there
AND paint your headlight bezels (the chrome-looking plastic rings)
The bezels and the jugs were my first two mods. HUGE improvement in appearance, and all it costs is a little time & a can of spraypaint.( if you don't already have some black paint.)

If you plan to off-road much the shovel is a must-have! (and an axe, if you wheel in the woods).
And if you plan to wheel in the mud, I second the "spare shoes".:D

But I did just take off the front milk jugs. I don't think I'll paint the headlight ring because I like the black with chrome idea

If you can run a grinder and drill you can make your own rocker panel guards out of 1/8 or 1/4" sheet metal. Go to you local machine shop and they will ussually sell end cuts cheap. I was able to get two pieces cut to go from the bottom of the tub to the bottom of the door for 20 bucks. I cut the ends to match the pocket flares and attached them to the tub with counter sunk bolts. I painted them with spray can bedliner so they would match the texture on my smittybuilt rock sliders. I paid a total of 30 bucks and 3 hours labor
