$21K Accessories on a Jeep Wrangler: Good idea or not?


It is common nowadays to see heavily modified Jeep Wranglers on the road with numerous accessories, and we can’t remember the last time we had a chance to see a factory-stock Wrangler. All of that makes us think that 99% of Wrangler owners tweak their beloved vehicles in some way. Why? Is it worth it? According to Jeep, a buzzing 98% of all Wranglers sold at dealerships leave premises with at least one Jeep Performance Part accessory.

And not only does the company offer accessories for its vehicles but there are numerous other tuning houses that manufacture them too. You can buy almost anything ranging from an accessory made for on-road comfort or functionality to those designed for off-road adventures and extreme sports. If you find yourself in Georgia, be sure to check out Rugged Ridge because they have a whole catalog of upgrades and repair parts for Jeeps. The Wrangler at hand here is the 2011 Wrangler Unlimited, nicknamed Mango, and it is wearing a whopping $21,000 worth of accessories. And it’s all courtesy of guys at Rugged Ridge.

Just so that you can imagine what it looks like to tune up your Wrangler to the max we applied every available modification and aftermarket part with a bit of help coming from Rugged Ridge. You know how they say: ‘When the going gets tough, the tough get going!’ And Mango did just that when we took it for a test drive. However, we have to denote that Mango is not necessarily an all-out rock crawler, but it is surely capable of amazing things. And this car just goes to show how much you can stand out with your Wrangler if you have funds and creativity while modifying it. This is quite a good mixture of function and form all packed into a single vehicle.

Enjoy the video and see how Rugged Ridge transformed this beauty into a beast. Of course, you personally can go and visit their site if you are interested in buying some accessories (RuggedRidge.com).
