    Default Best inexpensive upgrades for a Wrangler JK?

    Hey Guys

    Thought I'd get some opinions on upgrades for my Wrangler. Upgrades which you have found to be useful, but inexpensive. Perhaps I'll include them in my next video

    Here is a vid of some inexpensive upgrades I have recently bought for my Wrangler, would be awesome to get your opinions:

    Not sure if adding bling is an upgrade, but OK.

    What type of off-roading are you intending to do with your Jeep?

    Rather spend the money on upgrades that work and not look nice

    Although these products do add "bling," they do perform better or are more practical than the original parts? LED lights, rubber floor mats, Rugged Ridge hood latches which prevent hood flutter etc.

    Hi Kurt, I do quite a bit of off-roading, from rock crawling to sand Dunes in Namibia.

    Hi, for sure, I totally agree. I have edited my original message as I see it wasn't worded correctly.
    I have lifted my Jeep and put on bigger wheels, amongst other things, but those are not the type of upgrades I'm referring too.
    I would like to know what inexpensive upgrades Wrangler owners have done which they have found to be useful, the more simple things.
    For instance in the above video I purchased LED lights, Rubber floor mats and Rugged Ridge hood latches to prevent the hood flutter. These are simple upgrades which I find to be practical. Granted, plasti dipping the Jeep emblem and adding a fuel cap cover has no practicality, but was just for fun and to add a little cosmetic personalization to my Jeep.

    thanks

    OK, so these are nice to haves, not upgrades?

    Fair enough. Because I haven't felt the need to buy ANY of that stuff.

    The only items I would consider is that rubber mat kit. The stock mats are crap.
