Seems like there are a few thing I wish were available, but aren’t.

So how about a thread to ask vendors to consider making some accessories?

- how about LED tail lights WITH a cage around them? Gladiator tail lights protrude pretty far, just begging to be smacked by brush

- how about a mounted bottle opener like you can get for earlier Wranglers?

- maybe a true Ram air set up for the Mojave hood scoop? (Could use a 3D printer for that)

- what about Jerry can or water can holders for the inside or outside of the truck bed?

these are just a few ideas. Please post your comments or your own ideas in response!😄

Inexpensive shields to put over the headlights so that the headlight lenses don't get beat up on trails. I opted for glass headlight lenses on my Wrangler primarily because of this. And at thirteen years and a quarter million miles, including the Dalton and Dempster Highways, they are just as shiny and bright and clear as the day I installed them (though I do have a rock guard over them).

These might help. If you give them your email, you can get 10% off.

I’d like to see a Gorilla glass windshield with an AM/FM radio antenna integrated into it for an option to get rid of the old one.
And also combined with an heating / defrosting option!

Not a huge fan of glass headlights for the same reason I don't like them on track cars... You're doing it right with guards but the average person won't and glass on trail because someone smashed one is no bueno.

They are significantly more durable though... maybe some laminated glass or something would be doable since LED lights aren't nearly as hot.

I've never seen a headlight break, though I did have a driving light get damaged. The glass was good, but the mounting tab and plastic protective shield were destroyed ...

3:20 if not forwarded automatically ...

But I do agree that when glass breaks, it is a mess. I've seen two windows damaged by tree limbs, one mine ...
8:44 if not forwarded ...

Not particularly practical, especially considering the folding windshield.
How are you going to get wiring from here to there?

Mopar makes the Hydro-Glide ram air intake for the Mojave hood, it is just installed on the Wrangler 392. I'm waiting to see a 392 in person, or see better pictures of the system as I wouldliketo open my scoop.......Jack

Just like the other cars that have them. Totally doable even if the windshield folds. I don’t intend on folding mine so there’s that.
