So Banjo... just curious why you're trading in your 14? I'm getting ready to trade in my old buddy... my 12 JK Sport. My thinking is this next Jeep I will be keeping for the next 20 or so years but, hard to let a vehicle go that's given me no problems whatsoever.

The '14 has been a fantastic jeep, but it's the first automatic transmission vehicle I've ever owned. When I bought it I wanted a manual but was in a pinch and needed a vehicle quick and no dealers around here stock manuals. And it's billet silver, which is a great color, but very common.

The order just fits my style a little better. I figure the color is either going to be amazing, or so hideous that nobody else buys one, but I'd be fine with having the only one around!

I know what you mean about trading in what has been a great jeep though! Hard to let go of a good one!

Well in that case you're going to love the 6 speed. I have to say that's one of the fun aspects of my JK... just a blast to shift. Luckily, it's looking as though my nephew will be buying my '12... so keeping it in the family eases the pain just a bit.
Can't beat your reasoning re Hyper lol. Either way you win.

Go to www.jeep.ca/en/2016/wrangler/design. Scroll down a page. There is a jeep and you can select hyper green to change the jeep color. You have to go to the design web site

Go to www.jeep.ca/en/2016/wrangler/design. Scroll down about a page. Select hyper green to change the jeeps color. You must go to the design web page, not build and price

That color has actually been around a long time:

Not to speak for Milous, but when I ordered a Sport on Saturday the dealer order site still showed Willys as available

Thank you. Luckily for me, yes. I pulled the trigger late this afternoon. Congrats on yours!

Thanks for the link!

I have looked at the Canadian website but i'm not sure about the color accuracy. Hydro looks nothing like that in real life. Still, it's another data point on the color!
