I have been digging too. Big time! I went on cars.com and there were 4, with ZERO pics. I just don't think it's as popular as a Tank color, so maybe that is why we have seen very few.

When you look on the thread, there are just a handful there. I'm pretty positive I'll have the first one in AK.. But none in SD, that's a surprise.

Yellow never really has been an overly popular color, it's usually around a year then dissappears. I'm willing to bet Tank will be back next year, but Sunset, Baja and Copper Brown probably won't.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

That was kind of my thinking too. It's one of the main reasons I went with it.

Green is my favorite color, and Tank looks great! But you hit the nail on the head with the availability of Baja...

Right! If you're going to name a color Baja, then get it to San Diego fast!

I think Copper Brown is going to be a bigger hit than everyone here thinks. Its one of those off colors that is visually appealing and (I think) will look phenomenal with some nice contrast (Willys Wheeler)

I can kinda see that, but would certainly need some references with black fenders, rails, roof, etc...

I will say this though, it's really hard to judge some of these colors until we have lots of references. Build tool does NO justice to some of the colors either. Look at tank, and how different it can appear depending on the conditions, camera, lighting..

I can't find my TreadLightly letter. Can someone PM me the company code so I can get my control number?

I think copper brown needs a big, gold, eagle on the hood.

Here's a quick approximation I created that shows Copper Brown Pearl Coat in Willys Wheeler trim:

That actually looks really good. Amazing how some colors look so much better with black accents.
