“What can be cooler than owning an off-roading Jeep?”

That is the feeling a proud Jeep owner often gets as he drives down a muddy trail, across the sand or up  into a mountainous back country. For someone who is new to Jeeps and off-road adventures, there are a number of Jeep accessories that are absolute “must haves”. Owning a Jeep maybe cool but what you do to it, through modification, by changing out Jeep parts and adding Jeep accessories also gives you a ride that reflects your personal style and meets your driving style requirements

  • Off Road Jeep Skid Plates 

Skid plates may seem like an additional expense for your car, however they are an essential component that you shouldn't steer away from. Skid plates can save some of the most expensive parts of your car from massive damage, which saves you from a world of trouble and repair costs in the long run. Skid Plates protect your undercarriage which is often exposed to dirt, mud and other road debris. Skid Plates add protection to your fuel tank, oil pan, steering box and more. If you're a serious off-roader, or want to be, a skid plate is essential. But even if you're a “soft-roader” — someone who sticks to dirt or gravel roads instead of trails — it could still be a good investment.

Off Road Jeep Skid Plates

Skid plates are generally made from either aluminum or steel. Aluminum plates are a softer metal that is lighter, but can shear off, develop holes and rips, or even shatter making them more difficult to repair than steel plates. Steel plates are heavier and much stronger than aluminum skid plates. They can skid easier and move along an object until it is free without grabbing it. Even if a steel plate gets damaged, it’s usually minimal due to its strength and can probably be repaired.

Body Armor, SmittyBilt and JKS all make a great line of skid plates to fit your particular year, make and model Jeep.

  • Jeep Tops

Which top do you want on your Jeep? Making that decision is crucial when designing your own Wrangler.   There are distinct advantages to both hard tops and soft tops.
Hardtops are the more durable choice. They're can withstand damage that would normally tear through a soft top, therefore, they will last longer. A hardtop is more insulating, keeping you warmer in winter, cooler in summer while providing a quieter ride. If you require a roof rack, it can only be mounted on a hard top and hard tops also provide security by not encouraging an easy rip through to break into your Jeep.

Jeep Tops

Soft Tops are more adaptable than hard tops. They can easily be removed making it easy to go “topless” in nicer weather and quickly replaced when there’s an impending storm. If budget is a concern, the soft top clearly the more affordable choice.

  • Jeep Winches

A Jeep Winch is a pulling device that mounts to your front bumper. It is used to pull you or a friend out of a tough spot. There are electric and hydraulically powered winches. Electric Jeep winches are becoming more common and a first choice for most trail uses. One of the reasons for this is that unlike a hydraulic winch, electric winches require little to no maintenance.

It is important to note that electric winches require a tremendous amount of electricity and is capable of running up to five minutes on a dead engine and a healthy battery.  
Not only does a winch offer extra safety for rough terrain rides, recovery, utility, and safety it also looks awesome on your bumper.
Smittybilt and Warrior winches and winch plates are great add-ons to your Jeep!
