Jeep Wrangler Bling

Wife has always wanted a Jeep Wrangler. So, for her 45 B-day she got one.

We added some plastic light and grill inserts, a wind deflector and a set of high powered PIAA lights. I'm looking to get her something else for Xmas. I'm thinking a Grill Guard w/ more lights.

Chances are, this thing will never see the dirt or the beach but she wants it to look lady tough.

Let's see if anyone here has so cool bling on their Jeep.

Custom spare tire cover? Or maybe something else from this website:

No chrome for Jeeps. I know you said no dirt but a long arm lift kit, re-gear, lockers and some tires are a good start

There is a good Jeep thread here on ADV, but please don't pollute it with wanna-be-tough plastic bling. In fact, I'm surprised you're even being vocal about it, but then NY is full of people who have no pride lost in bling for bling's sake.

I agree - keep the newer plastic Jeeps in this section.

That describes 99.7% of the Jeeps in your area. Just stop any one of those clowns and see what they are running.

I searched for a Jeep thread for ideas before posting- couldn't find one. I'll look again.
