Since the interior isn't available until mid-October, I can wait patiently! Now, if you could just order the Overland with the seat embroidery as a delete option, I would be very happy!
Ok, let me understand this correctly. If I order an Overland, the dang seats will have that freaking logo splashed across the upper half? I've seen a few pictures of that, but when I drove a red Overland, the seats did not have the logo.
I have to say, trying to figure out what Jeep offers and does not offer is getting a little tiring. There is a great need for concrete answers. Get your act together Jeep.
Is there a date set for a Jeep Rep to be here on the forum? Or am I dreaming pie in the sky? Maybe it's best to wait and see how all this shakes out. Thought we wanted the White Gold, but without actually seeing it, no way will we order it. Then we decided on the Silver. Now we realize maybe what we thought was Silver, actually was the Mineral Gray. But can't be too sure even about that. In some pictures the Mineral Gray looks too dark and in some it's ok. Ugh ! We need some clarification but I'm afraid that may only come when the actual colors hit the dealer lots.

Yep! If you view the stock photos for the light frost interior, on WK2Jeeps or Jeep.com, it appears as "cream beige" on my calibrated monitor, and yet is very gray in the flesh. Unless you have a dialed in monitor viewing full res pics, you really can't choose from them. Hold out for the vehicles to come into stock, and then order, or purchase one in inventory. Looks like that will be October, but what's the rush?

Re: 2011 Overland - what color?

The MG exterior looks nice.

Still can't decide so I'm thinking the smart thing is to wait until
we can see these in person.

Re: 2011 Overland - what color?

Ok, checked out the Jeep site.

Seems for now you can only order the following exterior colors
on the Overland :

Blueberry Black
Brilliant Black
Stone White
Red
Silver
Charcoal

That sure narrows it down for us.

Re: 2011 Overland - what color?

First post. Just found this web site yesterday, and I have been reading some of the posts today. I tried to order a 2011 JGC on Monday of this week, but was unsuccessful. I wanted an Overland and one dealer said that he cound not order an Overland because these were grayed out in his order system. The other dealer said he could order it but not in the color I wanted. The color I wanted is Mineral Gray Metallic like others here have talked about. The dealer thta could order an Overland said it would be three months before he could even order a MG color Overland, and another three months after that before delivery. He said I was looking at next year to get one in gray. Does anyone with inside information monitor this web site? Chrysler customer servise told me on Tuesday that MG color would be available to order mid August which will be about Monday of next week. A post I saw on this site said Oct 1st for MG. Does anyone know the real story on when Mineral Gray will actually be available to order?

I believe mineral gray is not available until October 1st as you mentioned by a post you saw on here. Milous usually has the most uptodate information and according to his post heres the dates for paint..

Paint - Dark Charcoal Pearl - June 28, 2010 (delayed from June 12)
Paint - Mineral Gray - October 1, 2010
Paint - Natural Green - July 6 (delayed from June 28)
Paint - White Gold - August 16, 2010

Does that mean that we would not be allowed to place an order with a dealer until Oct 1st, or that it would be available to order sooner with build dates past Oct 1st?

Re: 2011 Overland - what color?

You got me on that one, but if I had to take a good guess, it would be Orders from Oct 1st on, then mineral gray would be an option. Before that.. No go. Because in all reality, when you order a car, it could go from just being placed, to gateline within a week, and if that was the case and your paint wasn't ready, then it would sit idle in D before going to D1.

Re: 2011 Overland - what color?

you have to get silver or white. i have silver and can vouch, in my opinion, its the best color for a jeep of any year since 2000 or so. silver really stands the test of time for some reason. so does white.....

That bright silver is good to show the lines of the jeep,but it hide all the chrome which help defines the jeep,if you like less chrome you could go with a color like silver or white or mineral grey that hide the chrome.

But blackberry pearl and Inferno red looks great, shows up the chrome and defines the jeep well.
