A Beige Wrangler??
My 92 YJ Sahara was Sand Beige - I'm hoping Mojave Sand is similar.
Yeah, but that was the Jurassic Park color...and it was cool back then.
What I have gathered from numerous posts here and elsewhere, Sahara Tan was the most perfect color ever produced for a Wrangler.

Clearly, beige tones are the only way to go.

I agree! Sold the YJ a year ago, and now I miss it... Maybe if I can get a JK in a similar color I can lessen my grief!

I stand corrected...and chastened.

I'm really liking that Granite Crystal Metallic. Saw some pics of it on Cherokees, I assume it will be exactly the same, right?

Its exactly the same as on 2014 Wranglers.

For some unique reason, Granite took a 1 year vacation.

If Plum Crazy were to be made available, we may experience a "break the internet" moment I'd go for one...

There are two '14 colors i'd like to see brought back for me to have another shot at...

Our 2004 is called "Light Khaki Metallic". So if I hadn't just ordered a Tank this year and wanted a purple or darker blue more, I'd concur.

Even better I had an 08 and didn't keep up with the new colors until I started looking again at the 16s.

Saw some good HQ pictures and I'm sold. I'm sure it looks even better in person!

Granite is even cooler in person... has plenty of metal flake in it. It lives up to the name Granite Crystal Metallic well.

To each their own. I park next to a GCM rubicon at work. I'm not big on it.
I have to agree, it has plenty of flake sparkle
