Best Cheap Jeep Wrangler Mods

The best part of owning a Jeep is offroading.  The 2nd best part of owning a Jeep are all the mods you can do.  Some of the best Jeep mods actually don’t cost very much.

You’ll see a lot of articles talking about the best locker, the best wheels or the best winch.  All of that stuff is awesome, but it’s also expensive!

In this article, I’m going to walk you through what I consider are the best Jeep Wrangler mods that are actually cheap.

Mopar Jeep Slush Mats

Jeep Floor Mats

If you’re having fun in your Jeep Wrangler and get into some mud, you probably don’t want to track it all inside.  These rubber floor mats will help keep your carpet clean and free of mud and debris.

Since they’re made out of rubber, they’re very easy to clean off.  Simply take them out, rinse them off, dry them out and put them back in.

I also like that they have a high lip to them, so they contain all of the dirt you bring in.  This was one of the first Jeep Wrangler mod I purchased for my JKU.

Jeep Grab Handles

Your Wrangler is taller than the average vehicle.  This makes getting in and out kind of a pain.  Why not making it easier on yourself, and your passengers, and give yourself an easy handle to grab as you get in and out.

These things are super simple to install.  They attach to your roll-bar and also provide a nice hand-hold while you’re driving.

Midland 1001LWX CB Radio

Midland 1001LWX

A few years ago, my wife and I were driving back from a roadtrip.  We had taken my JKU up to Pennsylvania (from Texas) to visit family and were on the way back home when we hit a bad storm.  It was just rain and my Jeep was doing fine, so we kept driving along.

All of a sudden, we hear some chatter on the radio.

If you’re headed into Mississippi and are near the border, pull over now.  There’s a tornado right near the border.

So like any sane people, we pulled into a gas station.  Not 10 minutes later, extremely high winds and extremely heavy rain starts coming down.  We hung out in that gas station for about 45 minutes until it somewhat slowed down.

After we left and we got over the border, there were trees down.  Debris was all over the place.  It looked like the place was just hit by a hurricane.  In fact, a small tornado had ripped right through the highway.  Fortunately there were no injuries.

In that moment, I knew that I would never own a Jeep without a cb radio.

On the trails, when you’re out in the middle of nowhere and might not have cell reception, you’ll want a cb radio in case you need help.

The reason I picked this Midland is that it lets you listen to weather as well.  Another bonus is that you can pair it with an all-weather loudspeaker so you can scare people next to you 🙂  You’ll want to add a 4ft Firefly Antenna as well.

KC HiLiTES Windshield Lights

KC HiLiTES Windshield Lights

You’ll want to pair these with a set of windshield hinge mounts.

The reason I love these up on the windshield is they’re easy to reach if you want to adjust where you are pointing.  KC offers a great set of lights that includes a very easy to install wiring harness.

Make sure to always put spots on your windshield.  You can use them to aim at what you’re looking at.  You then put flood lights on your bumper to just fill in everything else.

PoisonSpyder Hood Louver

PoisonSpyder Hood Louver

In Texas, crawling gets very hot.  You’re going at 2-3mph, sun beating down on your Jeep at 100+ degrees and you’re just watching your engine temperature rise.  These hood louvers help that.

The PoisonSpyder Hood Louver is honestly one of my favorite Jeep Wrangler mods just due to how badass it looks.  It’s a little scary getting it installed – you need to be comfortable cutting a huge hole in your hood.  PSC offers a great template though and it honestly is a very easy install.

It’ll instantly add a very badass look to your Jeep hood.

I ran this for several years on both my LJ and JKU and never once had any water issues.

This little Jeep Wrangler mod will take you a few hours to install, so plan a nice relaxing afternoon before you start.

Mopar Hitch Receiver

Mopar Hitch

Want to be able to tow things with your Jeep?  This hitch fits perfectly on the back of your Wrangler.  It uses the same bolts as the OEM receiver and allows you to do a little bit of towing.

Unfortunately, the Wranglers don’t have the best towing capability.  You do have some, though, so you might as well use it.  An alternative use can also be an attachment point for another d-ring.

Mopar Black Door Sill Guard

Jeep Door Sill Guard

These add just a little bit of flair to your door sill.  On top of that, they offer protection from when people come in and out.  I’ve found the paint to rub off a little easy on my Wrangler, so the more protection the better.

This is an easy Jeep Wrangler mod that you can do in 5 minutes.
