Re: Dark charcoal

Excellent choice! I delivery of my order about a month and a half ago. As I was walking out of the dealership, a group of employees were standing outside commenting on how the Charcoal/Saddle is the best combination they'd seen. Now please at least consider the fog chrome light bezels...

Overland Color Combo?

Re: Dark charcoal

I have the Charcoal and I love it. At night, it actually has a brown metallic look to it.

Re: Dark charcoal

I've been trying to decide on colors also.

My first choice was Silver since it looks good day or night and is low maintenance here in SoCal. However after seeing a WK2 in Silver, I wasn't sure I liked it. It didn't look bad, but it didn't look as good as I hoped.

My second choice was Mineral Gray. I figured it would be half way between Silver and Dark Charcoal. Now, the first time I saw a Mineral Gray WK2 in person, I was not impressed at all. The color looked "flat" and had no "pop" to it. Battleship Gray would be a good description.

Then I drove by another dealership and saw a beautiful WK2! It looked like a slightly darker Silver or a light Charcoal. I walked up to it and...

it was MINERAL GRAY!

I was shocked, none of the Mineral Gray Jeeps I'd seen looked this good. I went back during the day to double check and it still looked awesome. The window sticker had the color listed as: "Mineral Gray Metallic Clear Coat".

So I'm trying to figure out why this color can looks so good or so bland. I've been told it might have something to do with the type of Clearcoat used.

Here are some pics of the great looking WK2 I saw (the first 3 are daytime, the last 2 are night shots)...
