In this guide I’ll show you 20 cool and cheap modifications that can do for your jeep jk. As examples Mopar door sill guards, Door hinge mounted side steps, Sunpie LED head lamps, Remote control Exhaust kit, Slim powered subwoofers and Grill mesh can add for less than $100 to your jeep wrangler jk.
1.Upgraded floor mat
|Motor trend jeep jk floor mats|
So that mud, dust, sand and different debris usually try to abuse your jeep floor.
Especially if you are an off roader, you may know what I’m talking about. You can protect your floor with a normal or stock floor mats. But the problem is when you get into the cleaning process, you will face difficulties.
There are a lot of good floor good mats out there. But I found 2 better and cheap options for you. They are Motor trend MT-923 and Sans auto car floor mats.

As well as the floor of the jeep next place that faced so many abuses are the door sill surfaces. I saw this mostly in lifted jeeps because people try to get into the jeep with placing their foot into the door sill.
Not only in lifted jeeps most of the jeeps door sills tend to wear out or scratched the paint and damage due to placing foot on there when trying to jump into the jeep.
So that it’s easier and inexpensive to fit entry guards to your jeep than painting or repairing from time to time when door sills got damaged. I found two entry guard options for you cheaper but durable and high user reviews at amazon.
They are Mopar door sill guards and Rugged ridge all terrain entry guards.

Both of them are less than $100,durable and easy to fit. Keep in mind to clean to surfaces well and dry out before fitting them. They will do the job for you.
Normally jeep jk have their grab handles near the windshield. That spot is ok for jumping in and out of the jeep. But it’s not the best place for a grab handle when doing off-roading or any adventure jeep riding.
Even in most of the cars there are grab handles near the top of the door frame. But due to some reason jeeps don’t have such grab handles. But it’s not a problem.
You can get a cool and very strong grab handle for a few bucks that can fit easily with locking a few belts. They can fit into your roll bars.

There are many options on amazon. But check for user reviews before purchasing. The above mentioned grab handle has good user reviews about durability and easy installation.
4.Door hinge mounted side step
Personally I’m very happy about this idea!! I have a roof rack and I attach a roof top tent for my camping adventures. But it’s a bit difficult to get on to the roof of the jeep. Normally we have to put one foot on to the foot step and the other foot onto the window frame lightly and get on to the roof.
Actually it’s a bit of a struggle. You may also have that experience if you ever tried to get on to the roof of the jeep.

5. 13 inch antenna
you may notice that the jeep stock antenna is somewhat long and not much helpful when doing off-roading. It can easily hang up with lower branches when off roading. Some drivers found it annoying to drive with a long antenna moving side to side on a side of the hood.

But keep in mind when the antenna gets shortened the capabilities of grabbing signals may reduce. But compared to other 13 inch antenna brands Rydonair works better for most of the users. It had perfect reception among shorter antennas.
So if you are serious about AM/FM listening and you are living in a rural area that needs a strong antenna, it’s best to check before buying whether this will work for you or not in your area. Normally most of the users found this antenna better than stock antenna regarding reception.
6. Rockville slim powered sub-woofer
If you are a guy who likes some bass under the seat while riding, this is for you. Most of the users try to manage the space of a jeep when it comes to an adventure journey.
There are a lot of things to carry, so it’s not possible to give a huge space for a huge sub-woofer. So this is the solution for you.
|Rockville slim sub-woofer|
The most important advantage is it fits under your seat. It’s slim, but gives quality sound. so I think it may be suitable for a person who thinks about space and needs a good bass for the next road trip.
I wish I could put this top on the list. Wipers are an essential component in any vehicle for a safe journey. There are no doubts about that. If you ever drive your vehicle in heavy rain you may have the experience of the importance of a good wiper blade set.
This demand for a good wiper blade increases when you get into off-roading. Off roading wiper blades have to deal with a lot of mud and debris. Without a good wiper blade set that can handle those mud and debris off roading will be a very annoying purpose.
|Scrubblade wiper blades|
But do your research and try to find a good wiper blade set for your needs. for a jeep I suggest wiper blades should be able to handle not only water but also mud and debris because when off-roading, your wiper blades have to deal with them.
|SUNPIE LED jeep headlamps ( pc:sunpie.co )|
Normally jeep stock lamps are not the best headlamps for a night trip. I suggest you upgrade your stock headlamps with a set of LED headlamps.
It will increase your night visibility while adding a cool look to your jeep. You can find a best deal for less than 100 bucks. Do some research to find a best set for you. Sunpie and AAIWA are my suggestions to start your research!!
9. Jk gladiator grill
But actually I personally like the angry bird look that gives to the jeep by this grill. I know there are many users who like this look. You can find this grill for about 100 bucks.
10. Grill inserts
|Jeep jk grill inserts|
There’s plenty of room to introduce a branch or something to the radiator through that grill when off roading. Not even in off-roading, there is a lot of debris that can hit the radiator on highways.
That’s why these grill inserts come handy. They are very cheap. You can buy them for a few bucks and install them easily. But they will protect your radiator.
|Jeep jk grill mesh|
But you have to search about the legal condition on using these LED bars in your country. There are some restrictions on using in some areas. If legal conditions are ok you can upgrade your jeep with LED bar for less than 100 bucks.
You can use them for off-roading, camping purposes and many more night adventures. Start your research if you like them with OEDRO LED Bars.
12. Mirror when doors off
|Jeep door off mirrors|
Because of that I did some research and found out about these mirrors. They can mount easily to the jeep through the remaining door brackets. It’s cool and just a 1 minute installation process.
13. Cowl guards
|Jeep cowl guards|
This can happen even without wind, if you parked your jeep in an inclined area. If your jeep has previous dimples occurring in the cowl area those things also can cover with these cowl guards.
14. Sunshades for top off jeeps
|Sunshades for top off jeeps|
But if the sun rays hit you heavily on a day time it’s somewhat hard to bear without the top. So sunshades are the cheap and best solution for that.
You can buy a sun shade for a few bucks. It’s easy to install when you need and easy to remove and store when you don’t need.
15. Fire extinguisher and holder

16. Rear tail led lights

17. Trunk mounted table

Whenever you want the table you can open the trunk door and unfold this table. It’s an easy and space saving gadget. You don’t have to remove it. You can keep it there forever.
18. Remote control exhaust cut out kit
|Jeep remote control exhuast cut out kit|
So if you need a monstrous sound when you hit the gas pedal and when you need it this is the option for you. Now you can mount an electronic remote control exhaust cut out for your jeep. Then you can control your jeeps exhaust sound normal to a monstrous sound by sitting on your seat with the remote controller!!
19. Back up camera
|Jeep back up camera|
If your jk don’t have a backup camera, it’s a valuable thing to invest a few bucks. Jeeps have many blind spots due to their structure. The rear of your jeep is a major blind spot. When trying to drive the jeep in a crowded place, you may have experienced the difficulty.
So I suggest you consider buying a backup camera for your jeep jk. Quadratec has a camera that fits into the spare wheel.
20. Rubicon decals
|Jeep Rubicon decals|
As my final mod suggestion I thought about a new hood decal. You can consider buying a new hood decal for your jk. There are cool designs of decals for a few bucks. New Rubicon decal or a Wrangler decal will add your jeep a cool look.
So far I have given you 20 modification ideas for your jk. As I told at the beginning most of them are useful in different ways and makes your life easy. I hope you enjoyed this article.
