Jeep appears to be targeting the Wrangler at Mall-Crawler crowd more and more.

This year's pallet pedantically follows the top selling vehicle colors chart listed on Wikipedia down to tan and green, exactly.
In order and in release times.
The only abnormality is Tank, and Jeep is safely euthanizing it before any potential 2016 country-club cruising buyers are offended by it's continued militant presence.

While soulless eco-boxes, kitchen appliances and bathroom fixtures sell well in soulless, neutral colors, it's not a winning formula for whats supposed to be a fun vehicle with weekend adventure built in.

Mojave Sand is borderline beige.

Agreed! 2014 was such a year as well. The only two colors that were not monochromatic were Flame Red and Hydro Blue. It seems like every two years they alternate between m & m colors and meh. I am a fan of bold bright colors, and I have always associated Jeep with bright colors rather than blah.

My 92 YJ Sahara was Sand Beige - I'm hoping Mojave Sand is similar.

Yeah, it's almost like jeep is selling colors people actually want to buy, and thus help maximize profits for shareholders. What the hell are they thinking!..

Agree dude. Jeep to me is synonymous with fun. I don't see alot of fun here... I mean, how many shades of gray do you need?

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

New to here.... I just got my order placed for a 2016. I originally placed the order on 8/19 but was told the next day by the dealer that 2016 JKUHR were on restriction. So I stalked the dealer back today and got my order in.

If I get the paid membership here can the jeep be tracked just by the VON or do I need to wait till I get the VIN??

It can be tracked with just the VON.
