Speaking on behalf of WJ owners we can always use a nice source for suspension components, things like extended sway bar links and discos (like JKS) for the front. I dont think anyone currently makes discos for WJ rear but given the design it would be pretty easy. Saguaro sells some nice shackle mounts for the front of WJs that go in place of the factory tow hooks. A-arm spacers are also very important but everyone who makes one seems to think its worth $100 for what is just a block of metal with holes drilled into it.

Things that always go on WJs that we need good sources for are window regulators, theres a stupid plastic block that always breaks. Somebody out there sells an alluminum replacement block thats bulletproof but hes hard to track down. WJs also are known for having faulty blend doors and there is a kit with replacement parts that allows owners to fix it through their glove boxes a guaranteed seller because a good 50% of all WJs will inevitably have it happen at some point in their life.

I would say bumpers and sliders but those are pretty big heavy duty items that (while it will make a couple customers happy) will probably take up a ton of space vs how many of them you'll actually sell. A nice affordable slider option wouldnt hurt though!

KOR sells some great WJ stuff (such as specialty trackbar bushings, 3/4" spacers (for leveling purposes), etc) but their shipping costs are through the roof. Anything you can find that you think WJ owners would love and you can offer for a competetive price with reasonable shipping would be a nice addition to your inventory. While everyone sees soccer moms and teenage kids driving around stock WJs all the time... the amount of them being lifted and wheeled is growing dramatically as they fall in price and the demand for parts will only grow

Well awesome. I've got a ton on my plate but Grand owners won't be left out I can assure you. I'll start looking into more accessories for you folk.
