I tried to capture that in the photos. Also, while I was taking pictures, I tried to make sure the image was as close as possible to what my eye was seeing. Anyway, for what it's worth, here are the results.

Great minds think alike. I ordered a small touch up bottle but it isn't going to arrive until Saturday. I also got anvil so I can put them right next to each other for a reference.

I am liking what I am seeing in your samples. Curious to see if the stuff I got matches. I got just the small brush on type so it might not be as nice but I will try.

Welcome to the forum. As for when they are building them, production starts Sept 8. Now comes the waiting part, I ordered 2016 Jeep Hard Rock in July. So have to wait a little while longer. Heard delivery date might be ( and I say this very lightly sometime in Sept. But I wouldn't hold my breath on that one, probably be sometime in Oct before we take delivery of our Jeep.)

They could literally take a VIN for a 2016 and slap it on a 2015 model for my build - nothing special at all (not even the color - black). I don't expect delivery until maybe November because I'm in Canada

Unfortunately I am extremely impatient when waiting for "stuff". This thread has been my daily go-to for about a month.

The Black Bear comes with the Premium Soft Top as standard equipment. The half doors utilize the standard top material for the upper window portion, so they are incompatible with the Premium Soft Top. Therefore, any model (or package) that comes with the Premium top as standard equipment or included as an option will not be eligible for half doors.

The Power Convenience Group also conflicts with the half door option, so the same limitation applies for models and packages that include it. The Black Bear also comes with PCG.

Multiple sources all say that is incorrect data at this time.
