Winter means different things for Jeepers around the US. For Jeepers in the South it’s a time to get topless, but for all of us in the colder climates it is a totally different experience.
We have to deal with cold temperatures, snow, ice, sleet, slush, road salt and that slushy mud mixture. That snowy weather is coming our way soon, so it’s best to get your Jeep ready.
Here are my Top 5 Jeep accessories to make your winter a little more bearable.

Floor Liners - There are a lot of Jeeps out there that no longer have carpet, but floor liners are still a good idea. After a week’s worth of tracking in that winter snow it makes for a nasty mess in your Jeep.
They help keep that slushy snow salt mess contained and makes for an easy clean up. Having a really good set of floor liners will help maintain the mess. You will want ones that are rubberized or molded plastic.
These types of liners normally have deep grooves to contain mud, slush or water, and tall sides to prevent those things from overflowing into your carpet. Plus, you can easily pull the liners out and clean off when needed.
Winter Wiper Blades - There are different kinds of wiper blades. Some winters you could use your wiper blades more than in the summer. Not only will you want to keep that wiper fluid reservoir full you will also want to think about getting winter wiper blades.
They are built with a protective rubber boot that helps keep snow and ice off the blade and uses a high grade rubber for superior performance in the wet winter weather.
Seat Back Storage - The Molle Seat Back Panel is the perfect place to store you Winter Survival Kit supplies. It's an easy access storage solution.
Knit Hat - There are so many different kinds of hats for the winter. My favorite is my black Jeep knit hat. You are going to want to have more than one, as well as extra gloves and socks. If you are out making a recovery there is a good chance your outerwear will get wet. You will want to change into something dry once you are back in your Jeep.
Hardtop Insulation Kit - This looks like a really good idea if you have a hardtop which I don't. Think of it as a sweater for your Jeep Wrangler’s hardtop. Something designed to retain heat inside the cabin or stay cooler in the summer all while reducing road noise and providing better audio quality.
