Might be Trading in the WK for a Wrangler... What Color???

Hey guys,

I might be trading in my WK for a 2011 Wrangler Unlimited that will be lifted and have a set of Black 20" XD rims. The only thing that I am trying to figure out is what color to go with. I am trying to decided between four different colors. The colors are Mango Tango Pearl, Black, Flame Red, or Deep Cherry Red Crystal Pearl.

Help me out guys, what color do you think would look the best.

YES^^^

Also, know that during the life of your wrangler you will LIKELY deal with water leaks at one point or another during the ownership of your car.. Just putting that out there.

Re: Might be Trading in the WK for a Wrangler... What Color???

2012s are already out, go get one!!

I had two JKs until last week when I traded one for a WK. Check out jkowners.com for more jk info. I'm one of the vendors over there and it's a great group of guys. If you have JK related questions let me know.

A word of advice...you'll get hammered talking about 20" wheels over there. Lol

Not true. I've owned a TJ Wrangler for the past 11 years. And have a buddy that has a four door JK since 07. Neither have had leaking problems. Maybe with the soft tops though.

You're right. I've had hard tops and soft tops on both of my JKs and no leaks. The 2010 + soft tops are amazing too. Nothing like the old ones.

Myths...LOL
