Outfitting the Wife's New Wrangler
« on: May 12, 2023, 09:02:47 AM »
Any recommendations on where, what type of Soft Top to buy for my Wife's new Wrangler?  Also any other fun additions you would recommend, Bumper/Brush Guards, Doors, Tire Covers, Fog Lights, etc...  Thanks!!  She stayed with me while living in a shed with no electricity or running water for 4 years, she deserve it.   :chuckle:

My wife has a 2012 Jeep and the best thing we did next to tires was put a synthetic winch with a winch bumper. Ive pulled out a bunch of people, felled trees, drug trees to my sawmill and more with it. We have a hardtop so no recommendation for the soft top. Congrats to her!

4 link is a kind of suspension making it flexy, 1 ton axles and 40" tires.
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

Sorry, I should have added, this Jeep will rarely see mud, rocks or anything close to resembling off road.  :)

No, the only jeep I have now is a liberty but there's a plethora of places around, both online and in store. That might be the best thing about the wrangler is availability of good to great aftermarket add ons.

I had an 18 Rubicon and just sold it a while back. I had a hard top. A friend of mine who had owned one informed me that a soft top wasn’t a great idea. It gets to hot in eastern Washington in the summer and your head will bake. I never bought one. Mine did have the 3 piece hardtop. So you could take off the back section or take the two pieces out like a t top. I added a 2.5” lift, wheels, tires, steel fenders, winch bumper, winch, wheels and tires. I didn’t add any aftermarket lighting except the headlights. There’s lots you can do to them lots to add on at reasonable prices. I used mine for light off roading and hunting. Never had any issues with the jeep :tup:
Happiness is being in the woods!!!
