I think that is what we'll call it. Faded Dune.

Just thinking out loud here...

Anyway, the first Mohave Sand Jeeps just went through. It's a real light tan color. Looks like a faded Dune.
Your idea makes too much sense Archer... that would be great. I'd tune in that's for sure.
From a few years back.... is this about right?

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So I'm sort of confused and maybe this has been covered before so I'm sorry if I'm repeating.

I've been under the assumption that a Feb 1 "Production Launch" on Mojave Sand meant that it wouldn't start production until Feb 1. But now AA is saying that they're rolling off the line already even though the ordering banks aren't open for another few weeks. Makes no matter I suppose, I'll still be ordering Jan 7 and have to wait until one makes its way to me.

These are probably the test vehicles, where they check to see if the body paint matches things like the body colored top and body colored fenders.

That's about it, seajay, 'cept lighter.

Walt is correct, Brilliant Black. These two Sahara's at test vehicles. They always run a couple test cars a month or so before actual production.

Thanks Archer... bit lighter is cool. Should look sharp with black top, etc. Tell you what though... this color is all over the place when it comes to finding pics on google, etc.

I drove up on the two that are sitting outside, in the lot. The color reminded me of when my daughters, when they were younger, trying to drink coffee. A cup of creamer with a bit of coffee in it.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So, I just picked up a 2016 JKU RHR last month, and I'm wondering if there is supposed to be a sticker on one of the doors that shows tire pressure, paint color, and other info? In another thread talking about tire pressure, some guys are saying check your door sticker, but I can't find a sticker on my wrangler. Any thoughts, suggestions - am I missing something?

Door sticker, under hood sticker or if all else fails check the owners manual or online. Friend couldn't find a decal either on his 2014 so he found the info online printed it out and stuck it with tape to the inside of his glove box.

Mojave Sand changes shades dramatically depending on if it's in direct sun or shadows.
