Maximum Steel is a traditional metallic; it doesn't have the mica flakes.
I saw the flecks in the brilliant black at the first dealership I went to but I just stopped by another and couldn't see them? It had just rained so the I don't think the Jeeps were exactly clean and buffed but it looked like flat black to me. Do these flecks go away after awhile or do you only see them in a certain light?

They're clear flecks. So they need sunlight to catch/reflect the light better.

Re: Anyone with a picture of a Maximum Steel GC yet?

I was at a rest stop in upstate NY yesterday and parked next to a spanking new Citadel Durango. It must have been Maximum Steel. I thought it was awfully dark to be true blue. Needless to say, it was a smokin color. Musta been someone's Christmas present because it was really clean. Our MG Summit is pretty hot (in mho) but this thing was pretty sharp.
I believe it is not available on the Summit?

Re: Anyone with a picture of a Maximum Steel GC yet?

Here's one more Durango in Maximum Steel
http://www.michigancitychryslerdodge...3994d06b1c.htm

I'm told by someone who's seen one in person that it's more dark gray than dark blue - like a dark gray with a touch of dark blue in it.

Yeah... I love metallic paints that have the "boat paint" look.
