re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Maybe these pics will help. It worked for me when I was doing my color research. I just had to dig for the same paint code, but on other vehicles.

It gives a little compare and contrast. Lighting conditions, camera, etc...

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

We had a conference call about allocation. Sunset Orange and Copper Brown/Canyon Brown both open tomorrow. I put both Copper and Canyon as both names are still showing in our system in different places. Trailer Tow Group(AHT- hitch and wiring only) is scheduled to open as well.

No information on the lift or the Wrangler X special Edition.

Well, I guess its now my turn to set you straight. The color "copper" is not exactly synonymous with the color of a penny; any penny. The terms "copper" and "penny" are not always completely interchangeable. Matter of fact, even Cu itself isn't always copper colored. It could be bluish green (verdigris).

You might have some rather old coins that look quite like the pictures posted here of the Copper Brown JK, but that doesn't mean Copper Brown is a true representative of the color family of copper. That was really the only point I was attempting to make.

Its true that I was just attempting to be somewhat humorous when I coined (a pun?) the alternative name Penny Brown. Would Coin Brown have been more to your liking?

What about the rumor the premium alpine system not being a required option on the hard rock? I know last month they dropped the requirement on the Rubicon. Any info? I plan on ordering a orange pearl hard rock tomorrow. Thanks.

If you like the tunes, the new system is the way to go. Huuuge improvement!

Just my 2 cents..

I was just trying to get an idea of what coin would look most like this "copper brown" Come to think if it, when I was young we found a way of cleaning browned pennies which would look a lot like the color of the picture. Put some of the bronze cents (1947-1981, there are 1982, but mid year they switched to the copper plated zinc cent) into a brine bath (table salt and water) for an hour or so. (If you have collectible coins, do not ever clean them! Ruins their collector value.) So after about an hour these things will be bright, in a non-mirror-like finish. Could give you a pretty good idea. Anyway, it's nothing much and something to give the bored kids to do on a rainy day.

On another note, there was a Campus Police officer at my college named Penny ... she was copper, through and through.

Again, that's a pretty pimpin' color.
