I have a feeling Rhino will be lighter than the touch up but darker and less blue than Anvil, but that is just a guess. I wonder if Archer Ace could snap a pic of a test Rhino for all of us that are dying to know what it will look like?

Wow... That really doesn't help much. Still confused.

Agreed, I thought that in person I would be able to get a better idea but it seems really, really dark. What confounds me is the second picture that Yoodie posted (below on the left) which looks much lighter (very close to Anvil). Yoodie, are you sure that was the Rhino and not Anvil?

[QUOTE=terraformer;1223267]Have you seen any mohave sand come through on check builds yet?

I did see Mohave Sand last week when my wife and I bought our new Willys JK in Tank. The Mohave Sand was on a Jeep Renegade in the showroom. It looked very nice. I should have snapped a picture of it but was too excited about our purchase...

I'm sure. If you look at the one with the R the brush marks match. The one without the R that looks lighter was a few brush strokes worth and illuminated with white light. I think it was a light washout/camera exposure thing. I added the anvil to the left a couple days later and added more coverage to the rhino patch and the letters for labeling. That photo was taken in natural light trying to minimize glare.

I had the same problem with both anvil and rhino when I took pictures in my kitchen (fluorescent lights) both colors were washed out and looked considerably lighter than they appeared to my eye. That's why I sent it to you because it was driving me nuts.

I think only an Archer pic (when that comes) will really help us out.

Yup... gotta say though, if it's that close to black it'll be a no go for me. I've had one black vehicle in my life, never again. Like they say, once you go black youll never buy black again.

Also...looks like those are beefier tires...special edition...or Rubicon...or both? JKRHR? I can't see from the reflection in the Jeep reflected in the XP paint.

(Sorry guys...this has been a dream of mine for YEARS!)

I'm gonna stroke out down here!
