The first three months of owning my new Jeep Wrangler are over, along with summer and I couldn’t be happier. My 2006 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon has treated me well. Now that I have driven the Jeep for a while it is time to start thinking about upgrades. Everyone’s first thought after buying a new Jeep is to lift it. Not me though. This Jeep is my daily driver and spending $3000 to raise it a couple inches won’t do me any good. Besides, it’s a Rubicon so it is pretty high up as stock.
I do know that I need to purchase a couple accessories. The first is a roof rack. The wife and I have become outdoors people over the past three months and we need a way to haul our Kayaks and bikes. Since I have a soft top, and only a soft top, I am going to need to get one of those crazy looking roof racks that look like an exterior roll cage. Does anyone have any experience with those? Any recommendations?
I am also going to need a trailer hitch. I figure with a hitch, I can get a decent Yakima rack for our bikes.
My wife wants me to get a fire extinguisher, but I think that she only really likes the look of them and not really the usefulness of them.
So, what accessories do you put on your Jeep?
