Jeep Wrangler gear...

Postby ol' yeller » Wed May 02, 2007 7:28 pm

Tomorrow I'm signing on a "new to me" '04 Wrangler for the wife. It's a hard top and no soft top is included. I've been around quite a few CJ's and Wranglers over the years, but this is the first I've owned.

This will be a daily driver and will hardly ever be taken off-road. What's some practical gear that everyone with a Wrangler or CJ should have?

The good thing is I'll never have to call anyone to pull it out. It's not going off-road unless I'm driving and I doubt I'll even do that. I've got my pickup for the off-road stuff.

I think every Jeep with a hard top and doors needs a modular soft top and soft doors to go with it. Just put the hard top back on in the fall.

Build yourself a hoist to pull the hardtop off and store it on the roof of the garage.

Of course, I think every Jeep needs a minimum of 35s....

I would love to put a lift and bigger tires on it, but until the warranty is up I won't be messing with any of that. My hope is Mrs. Yeller drives it for a couple of years and then I take it over.

Looks like we're going tomorrow to a place here in town and picking up a full soft top, a set of half doors and a bikini top.

Why waste the money if you are never taking it off road?

I will use my pickup until it dies on me or it's costing me quite a bit of money to keep it up. Probably in 4 or 5 years. After that the wife will have a new truck and then I'll take over the Jeep. For the next few years she'll be using it as a daily driver and there's no need for a lift and bigger tires. No need to get worse gas mileage. I guess should have been more specific in my posts.
