My first post here...Used to have an 89 Cherokee and then a 98 TJ. Went on to other cars/trucks/SUVs and tomorrow I may be picking up a 2016 Rubicon with just about every option. Tried to find the forum I used to frequent in the 90's/2000's but can't find it. At the time, it was the most active forum, anyone know what it was called? Driving me crazy that I can't find it. Maybe the forums look so updated now, I just can't recognize it...I have switched to Gmail since then so I can't search for username/password.

Anyway, I'm wondering what Mopar accessories I should ask the dealer to throw in or heavily discount. I was thinking rubber floor mats, mud flaps, rear rubber cargo mat, and roof liners. Or should I go aftermarket? Anything else I should ask for?

Thanks! :iamhappy:

slush mats should be easy but the headliner's might be harder. If they don't budge, you can always buy them on Amazon for roughly $230 (vs $500 at the dealer).

My Rubicon came with Mopar slush mats for free. I bought the rear cargo mat on Amazon for about $60. The door sills are nice and were $28. That's the only Mopar accessories I'd use. Mud flaps on a Jeep? Eeeewwww.

Something every new Jeep should come with are the MOPAR Door Sill Scuff Guards. Not expensive, but I bloody well can't reckon why they are not standard equipment.

All good mentions.

The Mopar accessories I especially like are:

- Door sill guards
- Slush mats
- Headliners
- Fuel door

Grab handles? We got them to "Steal them" off another jeep on the lot. Slush mats and rear cargo slush mat as well. He tried to find some freedom panel storage bags but couldn't.

Didn't think about the hat.

How about one of those kits they throw in with the hard rocks? May have some of them sitting around.

Because they cause the door seals to leak (especially during water fording). My doors didn't leak until I put the sill guards on. Took them off, threw them right in the trash, and now my doors don't leak. YMMV depending upon how you actually use your vehicle.

I second the fuel door and the grab handles. No need for the rubber cargo mat. Just flip the carpet one over and voila!

I have them on my 2dr soft top and haven't had any leaking issues. Sat in the rain all last night and I check this morning, everything was bone dry.

As I stated, YMMV. Report back after your next deep water fording.

Thanks, didn't think about the sill guards, grab handles, fuel door, and hat. I will try to get those "packaged" in.

Did anyone else's new (2016) Rubicon come with AT tires? Every new Rubicon I saw there came with AT tires. I might prefer this anyway since this will be my daily driver.

The Mopar front bumper skid would be nice. Then the cheap plastic front air dam can be pulled and tossed.

A Rubicon will come with grab handles. I'd get door sills and slush mats as both protect your Jeep. I'm not really sure what the purpose of the fuel door is? (none?)

FWIW, I'd negotiate the sale price and finance rate (if you're getting a loan) before accessories. Save those for when you're happy with the deal and want to push just a little bit further. :)

Totaly agree with this. Let accessories be icing in the cake.

For those that live in cold/winter weather areas, the fuel door keeps snow and other crud from filling the gas cap area. When you're in freezing temps and need to fill up, you'll appreciate having the fuel door.

I like the slush mat for the cargo area because it covers the plastic part on the floor. For some reason, the stock one doesn't cover it. I'm also getting the Mopar hood lock.
