Yes, very interesting... Available only on Unlimited Sahara.

I was looking at the 2015 online brochure (https://www.jeep.com/assets/pdf/wrangler_2015.pdf), and was wondering if one of the Mopar vehicles was actually dark blue. It's the 2 door Rubicon on the right with the red bead lock wheels.

Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part, but maybe the US market will get Viper GTS Blue as well as Plum Crazy on an upcoming special edition.

Googling...looks pretty similar to Hydro AKA Atlantic...The swatch certainly looks much darker, but maybe it's just a mistaken equivalent paint code?

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

First time posting to Jeep Garage, but I read this thread daily. When I ordered my 2014 JK, the waiting was tough, especially since it shipped to Baltimore and then to Germany where I am stationed. The wait is definitely worth it!

If you would like to pass the time, check out this video of the Wrangler production line. I do not believe Archer Ace made an appearance, but it is fun to watch the video from 6:45 to the end.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I just posted some Tank pics in the waiting room. The color is darker than the photos I have seen (and even mine). It looks great in person! I was worried about the colored fenders, but nope they look great too! For those that were wondering, the grab handles were in the glove box and the freedom top bag was in the back. I also had a set of coat hooks as well.

Does anyone know if the stock Black fenders are what is under the painted matching fenders?
The painted fenders appear to be a thin plastic material attached to what looks like the stock fenders underneath.

Dean, the painted fenders are sitting on top of flare liners, so it does appear to be regular, non-painted fenders, but they are different. You can check out the differences on Jeep parts sites; painted OEM fenders cost twice as much as regular ones. Mopar parts numbers: left/right painted (5KC87TZZAG/5KC86TZZAG) and left/right regular (5KF09RXFAG/5KF08RXFAG).

Video from 2011? Grill is pre-2014, looks like Detonator Yellow, Sahara Tan and Mango Tango are in a couple shots. Fun video to watch, wonder if there's a narrated "walk-through" video of the plant somewhere.

Seems like there were descriptions and pix a dozen or so pages back, if I remember right? I got the impression that the buyer was happy, not regretful.

I considered the freedom top liner but realized they were charging a premium to install it from factory.
Check out online pricing, Think you will find the headliner for around 220-250 vs $495 installed.
It just involves double face tapping.
It looks pretty basic to install.
