Yeah I know Milous will come through when the info is available. I'm just getting anxious as it is about the same time as last year's info and I'm really curious. I like Mojave and Rhino but wouldn't mind seeing if there is something that calls my name. I have only ever had gray, black, or blue vehicles. Maybe there is some craziness that will break that trend.

Love the Hemi in the Rebel but no amount of windows and sunroofs will ever match top off freedom.

Back to the point the seats are very comfortable just wish they had used a generic pattern and not married it to a brand.
Thats interesting re the Rebel seats PC... I didn't realize the tread pattern was tied in to Toyo. Thought it was a generic pattern... yup, cool looking for sure though.

No Rhino, Yoodie?

Same boat. I seem to have missed the 2016 Hydro window (wasn't showing up in order system earlier this week)

So really hoping there's something else interesting (but quite as 'interesting' as Hypergreen).

Ran the remaining '16 colors that appear to be continuing past the kids/wife, and Rhino was the choice of the bunch. But still wouldn't mind a Cosmic Blue comeback, or something in the green spectrum.

Looks like we're all thinking the same here. This next Jeep will be my keeper, hopefully for 20 years or so and for this reason I want it to be exactly what I want. I plan on keeping it stock... I'm thinking an original Hard Rock JK will be something a bit cool and different a few decades from now lol.
Like you said dr... something not as wild as Hypergreen but close would be awesome. Cosmic Blue? Perfect. I skimped and settled a bit when I bought my '12 JK... not again.
Holly, I know you had your heart set on a Purple Hard Rock this past year... if that was to happen would you be back at the dealership?

I want Rugged Brown... but the only way to make sure Rugged Brown appears for the '17 would be to buy a Hypergreen now....hope colors are announced soon - even if we then have to wait to see actual colors.... at least we will have a general sense of what color family it will be...unless Jeep uses those nicknames for colors....my luck the new colors will be named "Mystery", or "You should have ordered last year"...

So the short answer is not yet. I have been taking care of some other stuff that's meant some delay. I may end up ordering at the 2017 opening.

As far as Rhino specifically. I like it, particularly when it is in the sun and you can really see the color but it is hard to see the color sometimes and that causes me some hesitation. I have only seen it in the wild a time or two so far; so my opinion is based on a lot of time spent looking at pictures. I will most likely be ordering a Rhino but you never know there may just be that gotta have it color this year. Lol

I'm jealous of your setup. That Mohave is going to be awesome and look good alongside its Tank companions.

I would probably get a couple if that darn Powerball would just cooperate with me.

I parked next to a Columbia edition Wrangler last night. The 2017 "C" edition isn't a rehash of that, is it?

Anyway, bring on the colors FCA!!
