Well hello everyone i orderd a 2014 jku rbi x and was woundering what the absolute must have/do mods/add ons are. Basicaly the Intended use will be my primary vehicle with some weekend off roading and camping trips.
Nothing. Gas it up and go. The Jeep is the most capable production off-road vehicle you can buy in the US, and you've ordered the most hard core off-roader in the Wrangler line up.Well hello everyone i orderd a 2014 jku rbi x and was woundering what the absolute must have/do mods/add ons are.

IIRC, the X comes with front slush mats for a two door and front/back for the four door. They both come with the reversible carpet/rubberized cargo mat, but it's not a slush mat like the floor mats...Two simple things that should come standard are entry guards and all weather floormats. Does the X come with floormats?
Get it undercoated. Not by the dealer or some high priced company...Trust me. Jeeps start rusting underneath the moment they leave the factory. It may just be surface rust but it looks awful on a vehicle you just paid 40k on. The day my 2014 arrived, I drove it straight home and at 8 am the following morning, I was in a local garage having it undercoated. It doesn't have to cost a fortune. They used spray cans of rubberized undercoating. It took 8 cans at about 10 dollars each and an hour of labor. They coated everything under the Jeep except the exhaust....EVERYTHING. As a result, my 2014 JKUR still looks brand new underneath....through all flat black. It survived its first winter of snow and salt and shows no sign of it. It is rust free.
Want to protect that new investment? Trust me....Undercoating!!!
nice thanks man ill look in 2 those:beerdrinking:The headlights are H13s bulbs, a dual filament design with small/cheap connectors --- worst in breed. The have parabolic reflectors that are among the worst designed and put in modern vehicles. They're fed via a pulsewidth modulated circuit that only gives them a portion of their potential voltage.
It all contributes to an overall poorly performing headlight system.
For AK, I'd look at the Trucklite, Peterson, or JW Speaker ----- I've heard that TL makes a set that are "heated" but I haven't seen them. JWS used to but came out with the Evolution and I haven't seen the heated ones since.
They all need an adapter with a capacitor and resistor wired inline; TL and JWS both sell the necessary plug-n-play hardware.
