I've got a set of rock rails that came off of a 2016 JK. I'd let them go for a case of Shiner Bock (bottles only). They were only on there long enuff to get the steps in and put on.

Perhaps a hitch mounted dancing pole. Makes your Jeep legit.

A nice sized bumper front and rear can go a long way in being both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Tops are optional but discouraged. Whatever you do stay away from mud flaps!

50" curved light bar and front Spartan style locker were the winners for us during the hunting off-season.

I’d say winch but my jk never needed it... they are pretty incredible off-road.

BUT....

Motor swap, rip out anything mopar, ditch anything for emissions, scrap the electronics....
After all that it may have been easier to just sell it.

(Above relative to 08-17 JKs)

Aftermarket rear bumper. I'm not so much interested in the front. Definitely don't want a "wench". Too heavy. Graphics down the side are optional. Mall crawlin' or muddin'....need a rig for both that is quiet without a lot of road noise and engine whine.

Spare tire is a deal killer for me.

Do you need a bigger gear and extended driveshaft to keep it happy afterward?
