Essential exterior accessories

As the title says, share with everyone what you think some essential exterior accessories can be, I was reading about a slew of Wrangler spare tire car thefts and fear this may happen to the JL as well, so a locking wheel nut seems like a necessity and not an expensive one either.

The Wrangler doesn't come with factory wheel locks? You'd think with how cheap an add on it is, that this would be included by default on all new vehicles.

I'm also partial to light bars, but I have to come across one that doesn't make a terrible amount of noise on the highway.

Not that I know of, but the locks are pretty cheap and you can even get one from Home Depot for $35. Not sure how secure those are because I've never had to lock a spare.

The YJ I had came with them, but I bought it used. And without the key its extremely difficult to remove the lug nuts without stripping/damaging them. And I think the JL is the first Jeep to come standard with halo lights? I know that was a very popular mod on the JK and made a huge difference in making the truck look more modern. An example of an aftermarket set up I like
