Jeep Wrangler Upgrades & Accessories to Make Your Jeep Life Fun as Hell!

The Best Jeep Wrangler Upgrades Can Make Your Jeep Life—And The Worst Jeep Wrangler Upgrades Can Break It!

You can drop a fortune on the best Jeep Wrangler upgrades, or any model Jeep upgrades for that fact. That’s probably the biggest thing I’ve learned over my 20+ years of being a Jeep Wrangler owner. My original Jeep was a 2-door TJ, but even with my current Jeep Wrangler JKU 4-door unlimited, the story is still the same. Jeep life is better with the best Jeep Wranglers upgrades and the right aftermarket accessories.

Personally, as a budget travel grasshopper, I’ve never been one to spend too much loot on Jeep aftermarket modifications that fall simply in the “aesthetic upgrade” category. If it’s costing mad coin, it better be pulling double duty as both highly functional and nice on the eyes.

These Rugged Ridge Side Window Rain Deflectors look awesome on a Jeep Wrangler and do the job perfectly. They’re especially awesome since I sleep in my Jeep a lot, so I can keep the windows cracked open and keep some airflow, even in the rain.

Two words: Custom Fit. Key for Jeep Wranglers since our windshields are so unique. Probably one of my most surprisingly good, kind of pricey jeep wrangler aftermarket accessories.

Travel Planning Tips

Figure out where you are going & how are you getting there…
I suggest using at least 2 to 3 different travel search sites. Start with Skyscanner or Orbitz or Booking …or whatever aggregator site you prefer. Then when you see what airlines to use, check their respective sites for better deals or rewards flights.

Figure out where you’re going to stay…
If you’re interested in hostels, search Hostelworld or Hostelling International. For longer-term or more private digs, look at Airbnb, VRBO, or you can look for hotel rooms in the links from the search engines listed above. 

Get comprehensive travel insurance, or in the least, travel medical insurance if internationally…
Especially with Covid not going anywhere, get covered. Start with an insurance aggregator like Insure My Trip, or with SafetyWing, World Nomads, or another. Then decide what is important to you; trip cancellation, baggage coverage, medical, or all of the above. And get a yearly evacuation plan, since you’ll have to get home after your emergency!
