Agree with you , I bought a '07' JK and was amazed when I looked at the aftermarket pricing verses say the TJ and any of the earlier renditions .
The rape and pillage mentality was apparent , there wasn't any hesitation to reap the R&D costs right upfront to the initial first few victims .
The new victims probably should question weather to just sit back and wait for the chaff to settle in the atmosphere before throwing a bunch-o-bucks at their new JL's .
Just to be clear the purveyors will update renditions of their products , so they will also benefit from consumer "testing" failure of the initial product .
But as we all watch the mod happiness that is going on as we drive around the streets of our communities , they will make the same mistakes that we made with our CJ's , TJ's and JK's so as the minor differences between the latest models develops and the "Low Hanging Fruit" is picked by aftermarket , we all have felt the same feeling of remorse doing it over again , so goes the world of "Wheelers" .
JL Owners should rejoice in the knowledge that they will be enriching the economy , and I think that they are the "new rich modifiers of a platform" that we were labeled with for the last eight years will annoy them as much as it annoyed many of the JK crowd .
JL Owners Rejoice !?! , get out your wallets .
