Exclamation Re: 2014 Wrangler - Colors

According to "Kicking Tires", "An all-new Wrangler arrives in spring 2017".

I'll be getting a 2015 Unlimited Rubicon (probably X). Depending on availability, in either Plum Crazy, new green (Tank?), Firecracker or Stinger Yellow. Finally some choices I like

Wish they'd use Detonator Yellow rather than Stinger. Detonator is on the right. More lemony, Stinger is more banana. Am I making makes sense?

Yes you are. Stinger may also attract more bees than Detonator, which looked very good on Wranglers a few years ago. No red leather seats for Plum Crazies or Stingers but maybe with the green and surely the Firecracker.

Re: 2014 Wrangler - Colors

Can we confirm the paint code for Firecracker Red? Is it PRM (Redline 2) or PRC which was last used around 2002 from what I can tell. Was trying to order it, thinking I would get Redline 2. Did I almost make a big mistake?

That doesn't look too bad. I have a co-worker that's been wanting a yellow ever since Detonator went away, but didn't want the old 3.8L. Might be trading his white '12 in for a Stinger. I'm very curious to see what Tank and Plum Crazy looks like on a Wrangler...

Re: 2014 Wrangler - Colors

I too waited through the end of the sluggish 3.8 litre engine to only find Detonator Yellow gone and no colors in the last few years I liked. I saw a new Detonator Yellow Unlimited on a dealer lot several years ago that had the yellow top and fenders. I liked it better than with the black top/fenders. Not too many of those around. Plum Crazy is a beautiful color but I don't know if it would look better with PC top/fenders or black top/fenders. Firecracker should look good both ways. Green (Tank?) and Stinger will depend but I think they will look good both ways.

Though it won't come until 2017, the new Wranger might be somewhat less Jeep-ish.

Re: 2014 Wrangler - Colors

Pat, Milous, or AA, does anyone have a count or percentage of the colors that were ordered for the 2014 model year?

Re: 2014 Wrangler - Colors

Ordered a 2014 W/W 2 door soft top with half doors in Hydro Blue on 5/5/14. Sales guy says his end confirms this color but 877-IAMJEEP lists the build as "color unknown". Should I worry? I hope this color wasn't phased out like Granite, Copper and Flame. Anyone heard anything?

Hydro Blue is still available, it has not been phased out (although 2014MY ordering will close soon).

Honestly, every time I look at this thread, I stop and stare at this picture. Sorry, but to me, both vehicles look to be in the same yellow.
