The 5 Best Jeep Wrangler Accessories You Can Buy Right Now



Apr 05, 2018

The legendary Jeep Wrangler is arguably one of the most popular enthusiast vehicles out there. Visually a throwback to the simpler days of Jeep, the Wrangler represents everything that is fun and adventurous in vehicles.

While Jeep Wrangler owners enjoy getting muddy, there’s something else the Wrangler feels purpose-built for: accessories. As long as there have been things to bolt onto a car, Wrangler owners have been bolting them on. The result is a booming accessories market for the Jeep Wrangler. Not all of the accessories are worth adding, however, nor is finding the right ones easy.

Rest at ease because the internet has been scoured, communities have been questioned and the immense pile of customizations for your Wrangler have been sorted. There are five areas where owners are commonly buying accessories. Let’s take a look.



Front Bumpers




Stock bumpers have very limited usefulness and aren’t the most durable. One of the most popular kind of Wrangler accessory sits right out front. Not only are replacement bumpers constructed from impact-resistant metal, they often include useful kit like motorized winch mounts. As with anything aftermarket, make double sure the parts fit your generation of Wrangler. Featuring ¾” D ring mounts, removable bull bar and up to 12,000 lbs of winching capacity, Smittybuilt 76711 is ideal for most two and four-door models.


Getting out of Trouble




Winches are fantastic for escaping sticky situations. They can also help rescue fellow enthusiasts from whatever trouble they may come in. Winches are rated by weight and typically mount to the top of aftermarket bumpers. Check to make sure you don’t exceed any manufacturer winch limits. At 8,000 lbs capacity, the Warn M8000 is an ideal get out of trouble free accessory. Want more capacity? Warn’s winches come in a variety of pull ratings.


Breathing in the Water


As much ground clearance as your Wrangler may have, keeping fresh air to the engine is the only way to keep moving when deep water tries to slow you down. Snorkel attachments raise the height of the Wrangler’s air intake, and its rated submerge depth. Wrangler JK owners use snorkels like this one from Rugged Ridge. By raising the intake to nearly roof height, it can help prevent costly hyrdolock damage.


Lighting the Way



Just because the sun goes down doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. Lighting accessories are an extremely useful and popular addition to Wranglers. Since the availability of LED technology has become more widespread, Wrangler owners have access to much better trail lighting solutions. TurboSII DOT features a cured LED bar and bumper lights for ultimate trail brightness. Just choose the size that best fits the amount of light needed.

More Fender



Wider tires mean wider fenders. More than a cosmetic upgrade, wider fenders help protect the costly upgraded mud tires Wrangler owners use. They also help contain some of the mud and rock tossed by those tires. Rugged Ridge in a textured Black Hurricane is a popular fender for Wrangler TJ owners.
