As all Jeep Wrangler owners know, adding things to the exterior of their beloved Jeep is one of the most rewarding things to do other than bopping around the trails all day and night. Below we list three of the top accessories that JK owners always have a need for.
A winch is a must-have exterior accessory for all models of Wrangler JKs and YJs and would be a great addition for anyone who recently picked up the new 2013 10th Anniversary edition JK. The WARN Works 3700 winch has a universal application that fits most models of Jeeps. It comes with an all-weather remote control and a 12’ lead for easy and safe operation going both in and out. The mulch-directional clutch is allows for free spooling of up to 43’ feet of wire rope. This winch can handle up to 3,700 pounds making it a great tool for off-road junkies.
While stock Wrangler JKs look pretty awesome right from the factory assembly line, there is nothing wrong with adding a few exterior accoutrements to help make the Jeep JK look even better. This bumper from Rugged Ridge is one of those accessories that both looks great and will play a pivital role in keeping your Jeep’s body panels dent-free. It is designed to adapt to the new JK Wranglers on the market and is laser cut with the tubes bending toward the vehicle, giving it a sleek look. Rugged Ridge was even clever enough to leave pre-cut fog lamp areas and, as with all their bumpers, the welds have been sanded smooth.
Wrangler JK owners who like to hit the trails for an extended weekend will need a large and sturdy roof rack to help pack and the gear they need for a fun-filled trail riding weekend. One of the best on the market these days is the Safari Basket for the Jeep Wrangler as it is a great roof rack for year-round use. The Warrior Products Safari basket holds up to 400 pounds on the highway and 150 pounds on the trails. The great thing about this rack is that it is a permanent fixture to vehicle and it allows for easy removal of both soft and hardtops, without the need to take the rack off. The rack is built to last and has a powder coated steel construction.
