Choosing the right Jeep Wrangler accessories is definitely a personal journey. That’s because accessorizing is not a one-size-fits-all process. You can choose from all sorts of popular things like new seat covers, floor liners, bumpers, bikini tops, winches or wheels to turn even the blandest of Jeeps into a head turner. And the best part, that look is entirely up to you.
The Wrangler JK has been around since the 2007 model year and ever since then its owners have looked toward Quadratec for all sorts of these products to enhance, dress up, and protect both the traditional two-door version as well as the newer four-door Unlimited. So, no matter if your Jeep JK Wrangler is a Sport, Sahara, or Rubicon, there are all sorts of popular accessories and parts that can serve the needs of everyone from first-time owners to long-time diehards.For many, one of the first choices they make are front and rear bumper replacements. This is because just about all factory Wrangler JK bumpers are lightweight plastic and not very protective off-road. Aftermarket bumpers offer heavy-duty strength, protection and durability, as well as options for winches, auxiliary lighting and tow mounts in case you or a buddy run into problems.
Another extremely popular early modification is swapping out the Jeep's factory wheels and tires. Aftermarket tires can offer better traction options for those who drive on and off road, while providing the ability to customize size and width. Similarly, wheels these days come in many different looks, colors, and sizes, and can provide a required backspacing or offset should the Jeep have a suspension lift installed.
Jeep lighting has also become a prime accessory target for just about every JK owner as LED lighting - headlight, fog light and auxiliary - has seen a drastic reduction in price while sporting significant visibility gains over stock halogen lights.
Finally, many first-time owners quickly look to upgrade their Jeep's interior right away as additions like floor liners can protect the vehicle's carpeting, sport handles make getting into or exiting the vehicle easier, or seats and seat covers can totally remake an inside to your own unique look.
When it comes to owning a Jeep though, especially a JK, many make the purchase because they are excited about exploring the Jeep lifestyle which includes taking the vehicle off road. For this, there are numerous lift kit accessories to help raise the vehicle and provide trail clearance. Parts like suspension lifts can change out the JK coil springs, shocks, as well as many other components to lift up the vehicle and offer a durable, superior off-road ride. Some vendors even offer economical 'spacer' lifts that reuse existing suspension parts while adding spacers to the coils for extra lift.
Other Jeep lifestyle products like hats, shirts, decals, or tents help anyone show off their brand love while enjoying the outdoors.
For the first few years after its 2007 debut, Jeep employed a 3.8L V6 engine in the JK that pushed out just over 200 hp, before switching to its current Pentastar 3.6L, 285 hp version in 2012. While the power is adequate, much better in the newer engine, many owners look toward aftermarket engine and exhaust upgrades to achieve better performance. Engine accessories like programmers, air filters, intakes, and cooling systems can help ratchet up power by changing timing or computer settings, while also helping the vehicle run cooler. Exhaust components such as cat-back kits and headers will help add horsepower and torque by removing the restrictive factory exhaust.
Although the Wrangler did undergo a significant redesign moving from the TJ to JK series, Jeep remained dedicated to offering soft tops as a standard feature, while still providing hard tops as an option. And whether you are a first time owner, or die hard, numerous aftermarket companies offer quality options for either soft top or hard top Wranglers.
Soft top replacements can include all new hardware plus material for those installing for the first time, or just material to replace damaged or worn tops. Some even include a Sunrider feature that opens up the cabin area without removing the entire top. Other popular soft tops options include best sellers like bikini tops, windbreakers and deck covers for summer months, or even soft covers to blanket your vehicle on bad weather days. Jeep Wrangler JK hard top parts offer everything from full hard tops, to replacement products like panels, latches or seals. There are also many storage options designed to comfortably shelter the hard top on those nice days when you decide to go topless.
While the JK Wrangler is scheduled to conclude its production run after the 2018 model year, one thing remains clear throughout its lifespan – it is a highly capable 4-wheel-drive vehicle with hardware available to conquer all kinds of extreme terrain, while providing its riders with superior comfort, performance and protection. Plus, it continues to be an extremely upgradable vehicle and can be perfectly adapted to all situations thanks to all the quality aftermarket accessories Quadratec offers.
