Four Great DIY Jeep Mods

Let’s face it. Jeeps are awesome as-is. But sometimes, a tweak here and there can take their awesomeness to new heights. Check out these awesome DIY Jeep mods


The Hammock Mod

The seats in a Jeep are certainly comfortable enough to take a nap in. But if you really want to relax, do what one owner did—attach a hammock to the roof bars! It works great when you are at the drive-in movie theater.


The Bottle Opener Mod

If your Jeep has large bolts on the A-pillar, you can install a wall-mounted bottle opener. It’s perfect for picnics! (Just remember to be responsible if using it to open anything besides soda.)


The ‘Squeeter Mod

There’s nothing like driving your Jeep deep into the wilderness where civilization seems like a distant dream. The only problem? That’s where mosquitoes thrive. But sleeping with the top on kills your access to fresh air. Try cutting a piece of mosquito netting and using clips to clip it to your roof bars.


The Smartphone Mod

If you have an accessory phone charger, the kind where your phone sits upright almost like the old cordless house phones, you can easily do the awesome Jeep DIY smartphone mod. Just place the charger on the grille vent on your dash, attach with zip ties and your phone is secure and upright for navigation!

With these DIY Jeep mods, you are not only making your Jeep more functional, you are making it your own.


Tips for Handling Debt: Get Yourself Out of the Red

Debt can be stressful and intimidating, especially if you are shopping for a new or used car. That’s why it’s important to cope with debt before it gets out of hand. We’ve put together a post on tips for handling debt, helping you to get behind the wheel of your dream car before you know it.

The first step, according to Uswitch, is to accept that you have debt. Although this might sound obvious, many people simply sweep their bills under the rug because they have trouble dealing with the stress of serious debt. Relax, take some deep breaths, and address your debt head on. If you need it, professional help is available—and well worth it.

Talk about your bills with a professional, your partner, or your family. Developing solutions is often most successful when you are brainstorming with others. Plus, those close to you are excellent at providing emotional support. The pros are great at getting you resources and solving issues.

Locate the causes of debt. Careful budgeting and attentive records of spending help you find out where your money is going. Do you eat out a lot? Use credit cards? Buy concert tickets? Most people fail to realize how expensive some of their hobbies and luxuries really are.

Finally, address the stress. Debt can be rough to handle, which makes it important to take care of yourself. Eat right, exercise, sleep, and keep things in perspective. You are on the road to a debt-free life if you are following these tips.
