There’s nothing better than cruising with the top down, enjoying the sun while driving your Jeep. You love every last scratch and bolt, but that doesn’t mean a facelift isn’t in order from time to time. Whether it’s your sound system, lighting arrangement, or interior organization that you want to upgrade, there’s something here for you.
Old and new alike, Jeep Wranglers have that unique and authentic look that no other brand can master. These accessories can enhance, augment and intensify the durability and functionality of your Jeep. You speed enough time in the driver’s seat: let’s make it fun and efficient at the same time, by taking a look at the best Jeep Wrangler accessories on the market.
The Best Jeep Wrangler Accessories
The one component of your Jeep accessories that you just can’t skimp out on is a quality cover. This waterproof cover doesn’t just prevent rainwater from soaking through, but rather repels it entirely. Much like you’ll see with weatherproof apparel, liquid beads up and wicks away like magic. If you own a Jeep Wrangler model from 1987 to 2013, this will fit without issue. One of the most common problems that you run into with covers is that they just look sun bleached and bland over time, which is why Leader Accessories engineered this differently.
Treated to withstand against UV rays, this will also prevent heat magnification. No more hot-to-the-touch hull after you pull the cover off. Individual pockets for the mirror, an elastic bottom, and a custom fit to provide the best possible protection for your Jeep Wrangler. You’ll also get a free storage bag, so when the time comes you can fold it up, toss it in the trunk, and you’ll be good to go anywhere the road takes you.

We’ve all been known to keep valuables in our car. When you park it at the beach, at the airport when you’re leaving town for a few days, there’s always something left behind that we would miss if it was gone (besides the car itself, of course). Bestop created this lock box to slip under your driver’s seat for all Jeep Wrangler models up to 2010 (2011 models to current are not viable), but will fit most Wrangler JK models.
In our professional opinions, this is one of the most essential Jeep Wrangler accessories you could own. You’re looking at a relatively inexpensive safe and wondering, “How durable is it?” The locking mechanism is designed to be completely pick-resistant thanks to its depth and design, without making the keyhole inaccessible or awkward to reach for standard entry. Sixteen-gauge carbon steel construction, bolted to the floor of your Wrangler, and finished in black powder coating: does it sound like anything’s getting in? We’d wager not.

Quality Jeep parts stand out against all others, and Rugged Ridge designed the top hood catch set that we tested. If you’re not familiar with hood catch sets, these are designed to reduce hood flutter from your Wrangler while you’re cruising down the road at high speeds. Hood flutter reduces your overall speed, requires you to use more gas and cuts down on aerodynamics. This kit does have a lengthy install, but once it’s put into place, operation is an absolute cake walk.
It’ll take about half an hour to set up. Rugged Ridge designed this stainless steel and aluminum latch to withstand anything that comes its way, and included a five-year warranty to back up their attention to detail and promise of quality. This latch works with just about every single model of Wrangler, providing a tighter seal without causing tension damage to the springs and standard hood latch. It’s time to optimize your ride.

Jeep Wrangler parts don’t always need to provide a structural addition; this super simple add-on to your Wrangler will make every single future ride a little more relaxed. We’ve all tried plug-in or suction cup phone holders in our cars before, but unless it’s designed to adapt to a specific car or truck, it’s not going to perform the way you want it to. Rugged Ridge created this specifically with Jeep Wranglers in mind.
After it contours perfectly to your dash, you’ll be able to use the vertical and horizontal phone grasp with rubber end caps. This keeps your phone in place, even if you upgrade to larger models in the future. You get the addition of this little tray area to hold onto accessories, while having the power to adjust the phone holder in just about any way imaginable. A simple addition designed to make every ride easier.

They tried to sell you a Jeep branded mesh top at the dealership? We’re hoping you didn’t pay that ridiculous price, because Alien Sunshade has the perfect alternative. This mesh top comes with a ten-year warranty, backing up the endless stream of positive customer responses and quality reports, just to provide more peace of mind. Apart from fitting just about any 2007 to current Jeep Wrangler and JK model, you’ll also get a few added perks to this mesh cover.
Full UV protection: we’re always told how bad long-term sun exposure is for our skin, and while riding with the top down is a fun time, it’s not beneficial when you go for hours on end. This mesh cover is available in dozens of different designs (including nation flag designs), and includes thirteen bungee cords to ensure that every point of contact is kept under full tension. No header required, highly durable polyester and PVC construction, and a decade (or more) of coverage.

With one full bar and two separate spot lights, this kit amplifies your visibility in all conditions, and works wonder if you need a bit more light when you’re giving your buddy a jump.

There’s a good chance you’ve gone off-road, and if you have, you’ve likely gotten stuck once or twice in your life. I’ve done the same thing, and wish I knew about the Smittybilt winch when it happened. First of all, it has a 9,500 lb load capacity, which is more than enough to get your fully loaded Jeep Wrangler out of most ditches. A 6.6 horsepower motor gently pulls on your Jeep, plucking it from the trenches or thick mud.
There’s a hundred or more brands out there creating the same thing, which is why Smittybilt added their full engineering prowess to this winch motor to make it truly stand out. You get an IP67 waterproof rating (no problem using this in the middle of a rainstorm), and a 500 AMP solenoid for added power. Whether you’re literally pulling your Jeep out or you can hitch it onto a passer-by’s front bumper, Smittybilt is here to ensure you’ll be out of the muck in no time. They also include a fantastic limited lifetime warranty, and will even prorate you up to half the cost of a new model depending on how it wear out.

Two headlights, two fog lights, and an absolute ton of lumen power. Encased in durable black-glossed aluminum, these lights offer you improved visibility in otherwise treacherous environments. You know, it also doesn’t hurt to light up the night when you’re backyard partying with a few friends as well. You get a built-in EMC attribute, which prevents flickering and aggravating flashing patterns.
These are also completely approved by the Department of Transportation, so there’ll be no worries about getting stopped by the boys in blue for simply having them on. LX-Light also guarantees a 50,000 hour lifespan, and just for some perspective, that’s roughly five-and-a-half years of continuous use. We doubt you’ll burn through them anytime soon. There’s a one-year warranty on the physical quality, and a long list of applicable Jeep models.

Ever had a dealership salesman try to tell you that you need those overpriced floor mats? It leaves a bad taste in your mouth when you know there are options like Mopar’s floor kit out there. This fairly priced three-piece kit comes with a bridged rear floor mat to fit beneath both seats, as well as two individual, contoured mats for the front.
Regardless of what weather conditions you live in or you’ll be driving into, Mopar’s deep ribs trap sand, snow and water, keeping the actual interior of your Jeep as clean as can be. Maintain your traction, improve your handling, and protect your beloved Wrangler from weather-related damages. These matts fit most 2014 to 2018 Wrangler models.

Star Armor sounds like something you’d get out of a Mario video game, but in reality, it’s Tyger Auto’s absolutely perfect solution to fortifying your Jeep Wrangler. This works on all Jeep Wrangler models from 2007 to current, and adds the same level of protection that the title implies. Using the patented star-shaped divot design, you get a touch of traction in your step-up to the driver’s seat, and an undeniable aesthetically pleasing look.
Star Armor comes in a black metal finish, granting you protection from wheel to wheel. If you’re an off-roader, you’ve likely scraped up the bottom of your Jeep and seen the unsightly damages take a toll on your aesthetics. You’re protecting those exact spots, maintaining a high caliber level of aesthetics while adding power to your Jeep. Star Armor doesn’t negatively impact your aerodynamics either, whereas some bulkier side steps can do.
The last note that we want to touch on is that it looks harder to install than it actually is. Some aftermarket side step brands just don’t understand that it doesn’t have to be difficult, which is why Tyger built this with a bolt-on installation. There’s no drilling required, and it’s all backed up by their limited lifetime warranty.

We couldn’t finish this list without helping you augment your sound system. It’s time to upgrade your speakers, and Mopar has just the ticket to help you out. With a maximum of 150 watts, you’ll be able to turn it up beyond 11, and experience fully realized sound quality without unnecessary reverb or rattling.
These door speakers sit at 6.5”, fitting perfectly in place of your previous kicker speakers. With extended bolt slats, you’ll be able to maneuver this into a 7” opening as well, which you may encounter on some older Rubicon models. Installation is fairly plug and play based, with the exception of removing and replacing six screws: it’s a cake walk, and one way for you to instantly upgrade your Jeep Wrangler without much experience required.

In my house, we called this the “Oh crap” handle. These heavy duty handles work with a long list of Jeep Wrangler, JK and Rubicon models, and don’t take more than about five minutes to install. There’s no drilling, no major dismantling of your Jeep, just a simple process that adds function and aesthetics to your Jeep in minutes.
SUPAREE includes a two-year warranty with your purchase, guaranteeing that not only will these hold up properly against your roll bar, but that the metal itself will retain its finish and look fantastic. If you’ve raised your wheels, or you’re using the previously reviewed Star Armor to help you hop in, these can be a big help to get you situated in your seat.

If you want it to look like the off-road masterpiece that it truly is, you have to add some aesthetic elements that scream it. This stubby bumper by EAG has the proper housing to allow your fog lights to shine through, while providing a super simple and clean installation process. EAG is using what’s already included in your Jeep: the factory mounting locations. No added drilling, just a fairly quick installation process that doesn’t require damaging your Jeep.
You’ll also get a crazy towing and power capacity, along with inclusive metal D-ring mounts that are welded onto the interior and exterior of the bumper. If you’re looking at the Smittybilt winch we featured earlier on this list, you’re in luck: the Stubby Bumper allots for up to 12,000 lbs of winch towing power, so you’ll be good no matter what. Created from durable wall steel tubing and a textured black exterior, this will be standing and looking pretty long after your Jeep’s initial luster has worn off.

We know drinking and driving is bad, but when you park for the night at the beach, why not open a few cold ones? This works as a little party trick you can surprise your friends with, and ensures that you’ll never be left without a bottle opened again. Applicable to all Jeep Wrangler, JKU and TJ models, this tailgating showstopper comes to the rescue when you’ve forgotten your proper opener at home. Simply mount the screw through the back of the license plate, slip the shell of the opener down over it, and lock it in place. It’ll take you a maximum of one minute, and doesn’t interfere with the legibility of your license plate in the least.

We’ve all been behind somebody with overly bright LED lights. SUNPIE designed these to work better than your preexisting lights, without causing a distraction to other drivers. Now, you already have tail lights, so what’s the point in switching them out? Optimizing your Wrangler’s power consumption, and improving aesthetics. LED lights look a lot cleaner, provide less fuzzy glare in rainy conditions, and offer clearer indication signals.
These lights also cut down on power consumption. Extend your battery’s life, and do it without hassle: this is purely plug and play, and requires a maximum of ten minutes worth of “installation” time. You’ll find that there’s no easier addition you’ll make to your Jeep Wrangler this year.

Storage is always an issue in your Jeep, but Genuine Jeep makes everything a bit easier. This simple storage tote works in any Jeep Wrangler model from 2008 to 2012, providing ample storage solutions with a snap-in divider to keep things nice and organized. The entire tote is collapsible to make room for bulkier cargo, sizing down to about 1/2 an inch. Perfect to slide right under the driver’s seat.
Genuine Jeep crafted this out of ripstop polyester, so regardless of what you throw into this tote, it won’t warp or tear from use. Along the bottom, you’ll notice rubber caps that prevent this from skidding around while driving off-road, keeping everything in its proper place. This cargo tote is your quintessential travel companion for long car trips in your Wrangler, which also features a quick-pull loop on one end to quickly access your items.

In the spirit of safety, (and tricking out your Jeep in as many roll bar accessories as you can handle), Badass Motogear created this highly durable fire extinguisher holder. You want to have every emergency necessity on you, but we both know that there’s only so much room under the driver’s seat to store all this stuff. This roll bar fire extinguisher holder fits with most kiddie-sized fire extinguishers, and is crafted out of highly durable polyester. High contact velcro straps hold the fire extinguisher in place, so any amount of off-road turns, swerves and bumps to come won’t stand a chance against it.

These fit any Jeep Wrangler from 2007 to 2017, as well as the new 2018 Sahara JKU.

The whole point of going off-road is to encounter the unexpected. You know the curves of the paved road, but you’re blissfully unaware as to what Mother Nature has in store on these dirt paths. That doesn’t mean you need to lose your cargo load over it. GPCA created this low-cost, high-end cargo cover that fits any Jeep Wrangler model (Sahara JKU, etc.) from 2007 to current. You’re twisting and turning down the winding roads, and with that comes a lot of stress on your vehicle.
That’s why GPCA made this cover extremely flexible, even when stretched out to fit over your cargo area. It’s not just about keeping a lid on your cargo, though; GPCA also adds six D-rings in key spots to let you tie down tools, belts, straps, or whatever else you may need to expect the unexpected. Pro-grade polyester is practically indestructible, while the stiffeners guarantee your cargo won’t bounce around and pop out of the top. Once it’s locked in, you’ll have nothing but confidence.
