Customizing your Jeep allows you to truly make it your own. If you’re a first-time Jeep owner, however, customization can be a little intimidating. There are so many options when it comes to customizing your vehicle that it’s difficult to know what to do. While some forums may advise intense modifications fit for the most experienced off-roaders, others may reject the idea of making any modifications at all. Ultimately, how you modify your vehicle entirely depends on your preferences. If you’re new to the Jeep lifestyle and want to customize your new ride, consider these best Jeep Wrangler mods for any first-time owner.
One of the first modifications that many first-time Jeep owners make to their vehicle is adding more robust bumpers. While Jeep Wranglers already come equipped with front and rear bumpers, they may not be sturdy enough to provide much protection in a collision. As such, it’s often beneficial to invest in stronger, more durable front and rear bumpers. Whether you’re off-roading or simply driving down the freeway, stronger bumpers will help provide your vehicle with the protection it needs and add longevity to your ride.
One of the most popular and beneficial modifications that Jeep Wrangler owners make is upgrading their factory headlights to aftermarket LEDs. LED headlights at both low and high beams offer nearly twice the light output of standard factory headlights. As such, they can provide exceptional visibility in foggy or low-light scenarios. Despite providing more power, the amp draw of LED headlights is significantly less than what is required of factory lights. Plus, technology improvements have made LED headlights more affordable than ever.
After years of stepping on your doorframe to climb into your Jeep, it can start to look a little worse for wear. To protect your door frame from accumulating scrapes, scuffs, and dirt, consider installing entry guards. Door entry guards are affordable and will make a large impact on preserving the appearance of one of your ride’s most highly trafficked areas. Such guards can often be easily installed using a 3M adhesive and are typically made from either stainless steel, thermoplastic, or aluminum.
