Five Performance Upgrades for Your Jeep Wrangler
The Jeep Wrangler is a performance powerhouse. It combines smooth pavement driving with rugged off-road durability. However, there are still ways to improve its driving performance and aesthetics with the proper modifications. If you’re looking to make your Wrangler the most versatile and attractive Jeep out there, consider adding some of these upgrades.
BF Goodrich Krawler KX Tires
The ultimate off-road experience is just a single purchase away. The BF Goodrich Krawler KX tires are 35″ of pure off-road decadence. These beasts tear their way through just about anything, from super steep grades and rock faces to swift rivers. With a price of just under $400 a tire, it’s a tad expensive, but the investment is well worth the payoff.
Floor Mats, Liners, and Seat Covers
If you’re an off-roader, chances are you do many other outdoor activities that cause you to get a little dirty. In addition, a good off-road excursion, especially with the top and doors off your Wrangler invite dust, water, and mud to enter the vehicle. To combat this, as well as add some eye-candy to your Wrangler, consider buying some floor mats, liners, and seat covers. Alright, so floor mats and liners aren’t exactly the most visually appealing feature in a car, but they do add practicality and a bit of color to the interior. Seat covers do the same, but with a wide array of styles to suit your tastes.
There’s nothing more awesome than using your Wrangler to rip tree trunks out of the ground or pull a friend’s vehicle to safety. That’s why you need to add a winch. Even the smallest capacity winch is still able to handle a load of about one-and-a-half times the weight of the vehicle, or for a Wrangler, about 6,000 pounds. You can also opt for a bigger winch, and even when you aren’t the biggest vehicle on the scene, you’ll sure feel like you are.
Alpine Premium Stereo System
Performance doesn’t always have to do with bigger tires or other mechanical mods. In the case of an audiophile, performance centers more around a top-notch stereo system. Jeep has this person in mind as the 2015 model offers a nine-speaker Alpine Premium Stereo System complete with a subwoofer. Whether you’re cruising around town or waiting your turn to climb some rocks, this system packs a punch and makes all your favorite tunes sound amazing.
If you want to kick your off-roading experience up a notch, try it at night. However, the only way to do this is by installing spotlights and floodlights along the front of the Jeep or on the top of the windshield. Not only do these look cool, but they provide enough light that it almost feels like it’s the middle of the day.
The Jeep Wrangler is definitely one of the best vehicles to accessorize because it shows your tastes and provides adequate practicality. With such added versatility, you need to get the ball rolling on these upgrades as soon as you get a chance.
