Customizing Your Jeep for Camping

So, you’re dreaming of pointing your Jeep toward a campsite for some precious time under the stars, perhaps by a stream or creek, in the open air. Ah, yes, there’s nothing quite like the simple pleasure of dining al fresco after a day on the trails.

The thing is, not only is your Jeep the ultimate off-road machine, but it can also serve as your home away from home on the grounds of a national park, or anywhere else, for that matter. With that said, here’s what you should know about customizing your Jeep for camping.

Things to Consider

For one, you’ll customize a two-door Jeep differently than you would a four-door ride, due to the room you’ll have to work with. The model of your Jeep will also determine how much space you have. In all, Wranglers and Gladiators are ideal for camping.

Also, there’s not a single way to modify your vehicle; everyone’s needs, and preferences, are different.

Get a Roof Rack

Oh, yes, we certainly know how fun it is to have the Jeep’s top down. If fact, whenever I think of a Jeep, that’s how I picture it. But alas, there are indeed times when you can’t have it all. If you want your Jeep to facilitate your camping excursion, you’re going to want to keep the top on so that you can fit it with a roof rack. To that, you’ll attach an elevated rooftop tent that stretches out over the side and expands, accommodating above-ground slumber. You won’t regret adding this equipment when you realize that, otherwise, you’d be sleeping on the ground or in your Jeep.

By the way, a Jeep roof hoist can render roof removal and installation a snap. Availing yourself of one can take care of any worries about the time and energy it would take to handle things on your own.

Get a Mattress

Now, if you’re planning on sleeping inside your Jeep, a memory foam mattress will work great since you can cut it to fit the shape of your ride’s interior. If you don’t want to go that route, and you have a four-door Wrangler, you can always get a sleeping mattress. With your rear seats down, the Wrangler mattress extends the entire length of your Jeep, from the front row back. And even if you have a two-door version, the mattress could likely work with a couple of modifications.

Lift It

Many off-road aficionados modify their Jeep by elevating the ride’s suspension. But if your aim is to use your Jeep truck for camping, raising the suspension serves an additional purpose: providing the ability to carry additional weight without sinking. After all, things like extra gas, luggage, car batteries, and perhaps a battery-powered little fridge can end up adding a lot of extra pounds that can otherwise cause the ride to bottom out. You can gobble up more terrain and bring more stuff with you if you lift your Jeep, which tenses up the ride’s construction.

Attach Exterior Fluid Containers

If you want your Jeep to be a primo camping machine, you’re going to need lots of water. That’s where exterior water storage containers come in handy. These vessels attach to the back of your Jeep to ensure that you have ample H20.

The same thing goes for petrol. In lieu of a can in the trunk, you can mount a fuel container next to your water vessel for use in the event you discover you’re running low. After all, you don’t want to find yourself stranded in the boondocks and have to unnecessarily – and involuntarily – extend your camping trip.

Customizing your Jeep for camping takes the experience to another level. Why short yourself, particularly when you have a Jeep? You may as well go all the way and make the most of your experience.
