Best Rugged Ridge Jeep Accessories Staff
by Staff

No one buys a Jeep Wrangler and leaves it stock. How boring would that be? There are such a wide array of amazing aftermarket parts to make your Jeep fit your lifestyle and personality that it makes customizing a Wrangler fun and easy to do. Rugged Ridge from RealTruck produces Jeep accessories that are some of the coolest and most functional on the market.

“Jeeps offer owners a tremendous opportunity to customize – whether they want something that is just a little different from every other Jeep, or something that brings them deep into remote areas,” says Chris King, Director of Marketing Communications at RealTruck. “There’s just a ton of opportunity for owners to build a Jeep that fits their personality, lifestyle, or goals. This is truly a vehicle every owner can make their own, and Rugged Ridge offers a wide variety of product to let owners build the Jeep of their dreams.”

RealTruck is not only the top destination for all things truck…they also happen to own, manufacture, and sell a massive amount of Jeep products to suit just about any Wrangler owner.

Best Bumper -Venator Stubby Front Bumper

One of the first things people change on their Wranglers – after tires and wheels of course – is the front bumper. It needs to be functional, look cool and help with making your Jeep what you want it to be. With that in mind, the Venator Stubby may well be the coolest bumper we’ve seen yet and is one of our favorite Rugged Ridge Jeep accessories. The Venator is definitely not your typical bumper design. It features massive recovery tow hooks and a built-in winch tray capable of supporting up to a 12,000-pound winch. And seriously, every Jeep should have a winch on it. You know you’re going places where you’ll eventually need a winch to aid in recovery. It has special mounting locations for accessory fog lights, and is still out of the way so that it doesn’t interfere with your tire selection.

Budget Bumper - Dual Tube Front Bumper

There are a lot of us that like that cool, classic look that comes from tube bumpers for the Wrangler. The Rugged Ridge Dual Tube Front Bumper is constructed from 3-inch round steel tubes. Rugged Ridge does it right by using an electrostatic under coating before painting or powder coating to give it a rust-free finish that lasts. It mounts to the stock bumper location, too, so no need to fabricate anything. Fog lights help with the functionality and cool factor, too. There are several options Rugged Ridge offers with the Dual Tube Front Bumper, including four finishes - painted black, black powder coat, stainless steel and titanium. You can also opt for a grill hoop to protect your grill and radiator. An optional license plate mount is available, too, in case you live in a state that requires two plates, or you just want to add a custom one for some added vibe.

Versatility Pick - Voyager Soft Top

Jeeps give you three top options. You can go top down to soak in the sun and feel nature at its off-roading best. You can also opt for the hard top, which is good for winter conditions. For the upmost in versatility, you want a soft top to allow you to have protection from the elements, especially in rainy seasons, but also be able to quickly drop the top and store it away when the summer fun is calling your name. The Voyager Soft Top gives you that versatility in an easy-to-use package and is an easy choice on any list of the best Rugged Ridge Jeep accessories. The Voyager Soft Top is designed with sleek, fastback styling. It installs snugly over the factory sport bar for a contoured fit and low profile. Large tinted windows offer greater visibility and are easily removed with heavy-duty, self-correcting zippers. Once removed, the windows store in the built-in overhead panel. Voyager top’s fold-back feature gives you open-top action in just seconds. Constructed of 30 oz. black diamond sailcloth fabric with sealed seams and 30-mil thick tinted windows, the Rugged Ridge Voyager Soft Top is backed by a 5-year warranty.

Protection Pick - Fortis Tube Doors

Dropping the top is fun, but taking the doors off really opens up the Jeep for major airflow and a great look. The problem is - it cuts down on your protection as you ride in the Jeep. Luckily there is a great solution. Fortis front tube doors are constructed from trail-proven 2-inch OD steel tubing and are fully welded for a durable, rattle-free fit. Each door comes fully assembled with a secure rotary latching mechanism and factory-style hinge pins for a fast and easy installation. They are available with matching mirrors on JL and JT models to keep your rig legal without the need for separate trail mirrors. When the weather heats up, tube doors are a cool way to go and they make our list for the best Rugged Ridge Jeep accessories.

XOR Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier

If you are adding a compact front bumper to your Jeep, you need to complete the look with something sleek for the rear bumper assembly, too. One of the sweetest options on the market is the XOR Rear Bumper from Rugged Ridge. This bumper is purpose-built for extreme off-road duty with 5mm-thick steel plate construction for amazing structural rigidity. It has a narrow profile with sculpted ends and integrated jack lifting points. The design also lends itself to good departure angles. The swing-out tire carrier is capable of carrying a huge 40-inch tire so you can roll with a spare for those “uh oh” moments. The bumper works with your factory trailer hitch, so towing is no problem. If you want custom, but functional, this unit is among the best Rugged Ridge Jeep accessories available.

4-Inch Lift Kit

If it isn’t lifted, is it really a Jeep? Well, ok, it is still a Jeep, but a lift kit gives you better ground clearance, lets you add bigger tires, and let’s face it - looks cool, too. Rugged Ridge has a sweet 4-inch lift kit for virtually every Jeep model with some options for better performance and style along the way. These are complete kits, too, as you would expect from Rugged Ridge and RealTruck. Each is a complete lift kit designed specifically for your Jeep model. They use ductile iron coil springs that are shot-peened for added strength. Off-road shocks are included with most kits along with all the washers, nuts, bolts and bushings you need to install the kit the right way and have it give you the performance you expect. Each kit comes with a five year limited warranty and iIncludes a pair of neoprene-wrapped grab handles and an off-road organizer to keep important stuff handy.
