Accessories for the JL were on display at last falls SEMA, and its estimated that dealerships have more than 200 products ready to go for the redesigned Wrangler. This smorgasbord of accessories is provided by Mopar and includes all of the favourite modifications for off road enthusiasts. I do really like all these 1941 branded products.

Support for the JL has been pretty impressive for its launch and I expect that we'll see a lot of current JK owners looking to make the swap next year. I think if there was a greater compatibility between parts for the two models that we'd already see more interest.

I wish they priced wheels cheaper because the why they're typically priced, can also get you a nice set of aftermarket wheels. As you can bet, people go the aftermarket route, or buy those OEM wheels used.

I don't really know what they could do to cut costs on rims, as I know the markup on wheels is relatively low. Better not to go with cheaper options that may not provide the same level of durability.

Well I don't know about Mopar, but the margins are pretty slim at tire shops. Luckily with so many options in the aftermarket, with some searching you should be able to find something with your preferred style and price point.

Discounts to original owners of JL's would be a great incentive. Having seen what employee discounts can be like I know they can do at least something for owners.

Jeep could consider offering some aftermarket packages from factory, with discounted prices for current JK owners looking to upgrade. Rewarding brand loyalty is always something that nice to see.

Well Wranglers hold their value exceptionally well, so I would imagine dealers would be offering some pretty significant trade in's towards a new JL. It does look like a lot of people are going with Sahara's or Sports trims but opting to swap in some Rubicon pieces.

Just make sure you sell during the right time because its commonly known that in winter vehicle sales go down thus trade in values, no one wants to sit on a product longer than they have to.
