Rugged Brown - Available?

I am having trouble finding a Rugged Brown Overland Summit to view in person before ordering.

Can anyone confirm that these are actually available to see (or are currently being built)?

Has anyone actually seen this color (in person)?

I am in the Denver metro area, but will be traveling to Springfield, MO & Kansas City MO next week.


Thanks!

I have read on this blog some were delivered (with the 430) but I haven't been able to locate one in my neck of the woods.

Re: Rugged Brown - Available?

It's not the first vehicle that Chrysler has used that color on. I saw the same paint on a Dodge RAM pickup at the Jeep/Chrysler dealer - that's what convinced me I wanted that color.

Re: Rugged Brown - Available?

Is Rugged Brown similar to the Lava Red color that was used before? It seemed more brown than red to me.

Re: Rugged Brown - Available?

That picture washes the color out a bit, at least on my computer monitor. Best bet is to go see it in the flesh (metal?) at a dealer.

...as soon as I can find one..

I keep checking the Jeep inventory, looking for one...

I am basically down to Black or Rugged Brown (I really wish they offered the Natural Green with the Summit edition - I think that it would look awesome!!)

OK, but my point was that you can probably find the color right now at any decent-sized Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge dealer ... it will just be on a pickup truck.
I had no trouble imagining that color on a JGC.

They have one at hill view motors. You can always ask them to email you a picture.

Re: Rugged Brown - Available?

Wife and I was looking at this color also adn being from Ohio originally I told her to get it with the Saddle interior and then we could have a "Browns" vehicle. I can see that would sell alot of them in the Cleveland area. I liked the color on the truck I saw in Florida so it is not that bad of a brown. But she is getting a white gold Summit. Good luck finding one in your area.
