Perfect!

Some don't like the 18" wheels, but I think it makes the WK2 look more stout? compact? "less lowered"?....uhh, just better ( i suppose I should put IMHO)

Thanks! Well, I think the 20" wheels sure look sweet, but if we ever need to replace them, I figured the 18's would be cheaper, and we were really at the top of our budget with the Limited + sunroof and NAV. But I do like the 20's. They were on our test drive vehicle and I'm sure they contributed to the great road feel.

Re: Looking for pics of the billet and granite

I did see Billet in person today. Actually parked next to it ;-). I have to say it actually looked VERY NICE. Already own Black (and love it as well) but If I had a chance to see Billet in person that would probably be on top of my list.

Nice Roki303,

It's great to hear an independent review, especially since you already have black. Black was going to be my first choice, but we all know black only looks good for a couple of days after washing it and my current jeep is black, so I'm looking for a change. Billet became my first choice because it shows up less dirt.

Living in Oz the 14' GC hasn't made it down here yet and I managed to get a look at a 14 in Oahu on a work trip, unfortunately they only had one black but I thought it looked awesome in person. I was getting a little worried that the billet wasn't as good but you have put my worries to rest. Thank you for your review!

Re: Looking for pics of the billet and granite

Couple of photos but I don't think photos make the justice. This is also coming from a person who liked Mineral Gray on 2011 - 2013.

Re: Looking for pics of the billet and granite

We have gone back and forth between Black and Billet. I think we thought we would like Billet when we saw it in person but that wasn't the case. We didn't care for how much the color changed depending on the light. We felt it almost had a hue of purple on cloudy days. Would love to go lighter color due to concerns on how dirty black gets so quickly but it just looks SO good when clean. Honestly this palate of colors provided by Jeep doesn't leave us with many options ... of course that's personal preference.

Is it just me or does the rear door on the billet jeep look like it's not closed all the way or out of alignment or something. A few people have complained about that on this board. I'm hoping mine doesn't look like that.

The rear door fit in the pic is fine, it's just the angle of the shot that makes it "appear' that way, imo. Here's a pic of mine, you can enlarge for closer inspection.

All a matter of personal taste/preference and geographical location, imo.
After two black vehicles in this part of the country, would never go back to black.

I have mineral grey now in my 2013...but I ordered a 2014 in BLACK. I do love the mineral grey and wish they kept it for 2014. The 2014 charcoal just isn't the same, especially when the sun hits a clean mineral grey jeep!
