    New aftermakets no more for JK??

    I know there are a hell lot of parts outthere for jk.. Been seeing some aftermarket vendors selling their JK's on the wake of getting JL's.. Does this mean R&D on new aftermarket parts on JK have come on a end??

    Seeing some crazy prices on the "BUILT not bought JK's" on interwebs

    Not an end, but it'll go the way of the CJ, YJ, TJ. A very very slow trickle of new stuff. I bet 99.99% R&D will go to JL for the foreseeable future. It's kind of nice be part of the "old school".

    I think there will still be plenty of new products coming from cross over parts from the JL that will be adapted for the JK platform. They are similar in a lot of ways and there are so many JKs out there that it is a strong market of aftermarket parts.

    I still see lots of aftermarket stuff for TJs. There are a lot of JKs out there. Vendors will want to develop and sell accessories for them.

    I think there will be new developments for different uses for the JK. I know one one company that is running two stretched JK’s and their “builder kit” is going to production right now. I think the prices on JK’s and jku’s will come down a bit and people will build some crazy but very capable stuff with them. That’s what that company of banking on. I know we have three products in development for JK/JKU’s still!

    I think something like 1.5 million or more JK/JKUs were sold in the past 10 years. And a lot of them are still on the road. I'm sure R&D will slow but I wouldn't think it would go away completely. To much money to be made in the aftermarket parts arena

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
