One of the best parts about a new rig is that it’s a clean slate, primed and ready for you to make it your own. That also means there are a lot of low budget mods that can offer you a huge bang for your buck. Pictured above is my new Kenwood marine grade head unit replacing the 11ish year old Chrysler cd changer (blasted volume knob stopped working!) with all the modern day connectivity you could ask for for at around a $100 depending on your retailer. Personally, I ❤ the good folks at Crutchfield. They always take good care of me with quality customer service, techs that know mobile audio, competitive prices, and if that wasn’t enough… All the install gear (harnesses, connectors, dash kits) is generally included at no charge when you buy a head unit. #WINNING
The item on the right is SmittyBilt’s vaulted glove box. It bolts into your dash and is made out of 16 gauge steel to discourage the few things in your Jeep from mysteriously walking away. A great purchase for peace of mind for fellow soft top owners at around $65 bucks. This one is crazy easy to install and is another one of those items that I’m buying again b/c it was so good the first time I owned it.
In case you can’t tell, I’m incredibly excited to get these two mods in the Jeep so I can rake off the half upper doors and go for a nice drive while streaming some great tunes! Hoping for a big install day this weekend to get everything done.
