I thought they were suppose to change colors with temperature, and that's why you see the publicity photos of the BC in cold winter scenes.

I agree they look like some kind of futuristic matrix, but I think the intent was to look like frost on a window pane, and "grow" as the temperature dipped.


IMHO, its one of those things that sounds better in theory.

I think it's because they are heavily promoting them at the x-games they thought it would make them look "hip" and "dope" for that crowd. I imagine them using those words in a meeting and maybe even including air quotes when they did it.

I just read that, thanks. Planning on a Rubicon, so Sarge is not in the picture for me.

Mojave sand is running. It's the best color if you're considering an anniversary model. The brass accents look ok with the MS

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Anyone have an idea when the 75th anniversary emblem and interior bronze accents will be available for purchase as replacement parts? I am building a 2016 Red Rock/75th anniversary 2 door model Hard Rock Edition. .
(Yes my Hard Rock is firecracker red.)
