So why don't they just pick their best colors and just sell them every year? Is it really worth picking up the stray Gecko Green fan who won't buy anything else? Seems curious.

I have pondered this too. As I am one of the "strays" who waits for unique colors.

The fact that it is the most accessorized vehicle on the planet would tell you that the owners are VERY particular about colors, options, accessories, etc... Heck, I went bats#%t crazy over mine.

If anything, I wish they would offer more! I would be happy to pay more for a unique color option.

Since Jeep Wranglers are the LEGOs of vehicles, maybe we'll have to build the next generation out of LEGO bricks.

Jeep has changed its stance on the JK many times, but now that its their #1 seller and the #1 owned vehicle by the wealthiest households in America, it seems like its almost and I mean almost, a bespoke vehicle.

I know they try to change the color theme yearly, as an actual theme, I believe they were going for "Skittles" with the 2012's.

edit*
As for pulling the color from the entire group, I have no idea....it could have been a cost issue, like when they didn't want to pay for Sahara Tan anymore so they replaced the greatest Jeep color ever with baby shit, ahem Dune.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I was disappointed in my color options. Although I do like the color I ended up with (billet silver) I was really hoping for a darker silver. Then they brought out granite for 2014 and that was an awesome color, darker than I would have expected from billet, but I liked it more. Of course by then trading up for a granite was not going to happen. Now granite is gone already. If they bring granite back in 2018 that will probably be my next Jeep - assuming they don't screw it up with a redesign..

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

The wait is over and I couldn't be happier! I've wanted a Jeep since I was a kid and went all out with my first purchase... from the dealer straight to get her some stilts and new shoes! I almost don't want to drive it because it is so nice! Pre/Post Op pics and a little different lighting... so glad I held off last wear waiting for a Hydro Hard Rock!!!

Unfortunately, when I registered my Jeep at Jeep.com as an owner and reviewed the optional equipment, the page states that "1-Yr. SiriusXM Radio Service" and "5-Year SiriusXM Travel Link Service" is included. See picture below.


In my mind, the window sticker leads buyers to believe otherwise. 5 years travel link WITHOUT 5 years XM service is worthless. Am I the only one that feels this way? Were other buyers here expecting that 5 years Sirius XM radio subscription WITH 5 years Sirius XM Travel Link subscription was included at purchase.

This really makes me angry.
I don't see anything in there that would lead me to believe 5 years of SiriusXM radio service was included. It's pretty explicit that the 5 years is for travel link only.
