Tuesday’s Travel Essentials: Customizations of your Jeep for Long Distance Trips

An ardent traveler always gets peace in traveling, and if it is a road trip, it’s like the icing on the cake which adds lifestyle in your travelling adventure. Road trips are adventurous, and selection of vehicle is the utmost thing. Most people love their excursion with a Jeep ride, extroverts are captivated by Jeeps and the most enticing feature is the customization options. A jeep can be customized in a lot of different ways; some people have ‘urbanized’ the jeep, while some are adding more beef to make a mean machine, and there are those free spirits who just want a ride as free as them. A jeep can be customized in a lot of different ways to make your long distance trip a lot more comfortable and safe. Let’s have a look to some trendy and convenient customization options for your Jeep.

Lights On

Lighting Bars give your jeep the off-road finish it deserves. Light bars add an aggressive look to the ride and have often proven to be a necessity while offroading at night.

Widebody Protection

Off-roading doesn’t necessarily mean that your jeep has to be left with dents, scratches and a ruined paint job, you can avoid this by adding rock sliders and fender flares to your jeep for protection. Even when not off-road the ride still looks great with these accessories and radiates a tough vibe.


The versatility of customization is endless with decals. Decaling your ride needs some real brainstorming to achieve a unique and sporty look, lesser the better. Hood decals, windshield decals and fender stickers are the most common decals.

The Signature Reserve Gas Can

A 5 gallon (20 litres) metallic gas tank mounted on the rear of a jeep is the signature look you should strive for too. A backup fuel can, ensures your safety if you ever find yourself stranded on the off roads with an empty tank.

Highway Riding Pegs

Every jeeper must know the feeling of cruising down the highway relaxing on your jeep seat with your top down, doors off, and foot out on peg feeling the wind. Well, pegs are not just for resting your foot they also protect your jeeps body.

The Shady Shades

Jeep Wranglers are known for the customization options they provide and the most popular feature may be the removable tops. If you have an open jeep there are a lot of options to choose from. Like the tough hard top which is suitable for colder areas, or the infamous and versatile soft top that can be removed to enjoy the weather, the sexy bikini top for summers, or the mesh tops for the passenger and cargo area.

Wheel Spacers

Wheel spacers are very significant for jeep customizations as wheels of the ride can make or break the deal and it is not easy to find the right wheels for your Jeep. Sometimes the wheels just don’t fit because of the lug pattern or offset, wheel spacers are used in these situations to safely accommodate the larger wheels and tyres. Wheel spacers are also an easy way of spacing out front and rear wheels and give your ride wider wheels.

Light Guards

Lights of the jeep are very fragile as compared to the rest of the rugged boxy body and are prone to damage with little impact, especially when going off-road. Light guards are very fashionable and decent way to protect your lights. Light guards add a meaner demeanor to the jeep.

Shiftin’ in Style

The gear knob plays a vital role in the customization of the interior. We believe the design of a custom gear knob accentuates on the personality of the driver. You may choose your pick from classy and comfy leather and chrome gear knob to the gleaming with abstract art funky knobs.

Fuel Accessories

You can add further customization to your jeep for a unique poise with custom-made fuel doors, caps and accessories.

Flooring and Mats

The cabin of the jeep also gets messy while off-roading and owners often look for jeep carpet alternatives to preserve the OEM carpet.


If you’re among the wanderers with a craze to customize your jeep to the next level then you should definitely consider installing winches with custom winch line, tow hooks, d-rings, mounting plates and covers. You should also consider contrasting the color of the winch line and tow hooks with the body.
