That's a good idea except for the cardboard stuff. If you can get a piece of plastic or metal, prime it and then spray.

Cardboard will just soak up the paint and leave a brown tint under such a light color.

Sure - I have some zinc sheet metal in the garage. I'll prime it and spray it.

Somewhere a few posts back it was stated that it would not be coming back. It was mixed in with a post joking about flying Jeeps (or something similar) IIRC.

Ah...I thought that part was a joke too.

Thanks.

Yeah, I think that was a joke about tank not being available on the 100th anniversary edition in 2041

Tank is not listed on the 3/4 Order Guide.

If it does come back, it's going to be very short-lived if the order close date remains 4/15.

I recently toured the corvette plant in KY. (I know its the JK forum hold the tomato throwing for a second). One option they allow on orders is to place a $999 fee and you can order any option you want... e.g. mix up colors and interiors, components etc... I think wouldn't do that but I think a lot of people might. A rubicon HR with saddle interior would look great. A rubicon HR with the ombre mesh might be more practical than leather if you really off road it. No carpet from factory... just thinking out loud... now you can throw tomatoes (or maters where I'm from).

Well, I pulled trigger and got a brand new Granite Crystal Black Bear. I waited for Plum Crazy, and saw Extreme Barney, it looked bad on the Jeep. Was going to wait for Hyper Green, but it looks like it is going to be "Holy Highlighter Peel" Batman.. Wife and I loved GCM so we happened to find a Black Bear with all the bells and whistles we wanted, including no horrible good sticker and a Manual at a dealer in Tulsa. So we drove up and grabbed it last night. Bonus is it fits in the garage with the Challenger, and my lawn tractor gets to sleep on the patio :-)

Looks great... does it have the sport mesh type seats or regular cloth?

It has the sport mesh. One thing I noticed on the ride home is the paint seems to take on different hues depending in where it is and how much light it gets, looks sort of brown in direct light on white pavement, and sitting in the dirt it kind of looked like a purple haze.
