I am down to purple or hypergreen as long as it doesn't look washed out. But if they decide to bring out a rich deep orange that will be my first choice.

Plum crazy is a beautiful color. I was so bummed they didn't offer it across the line last year that I went out and bought a TJ unlimited instead and had my custom car I'm building painted Plum Crazy....

Holly, if it makes you feel better - Purple collects dust like mad. I can wash the thing and an hour later it is dirty again.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Don't even get me going on Baja. I factory ordered a new Baja Rubicon 2 door in April of last year. My cousin ordered a Billet 4 door. We rented a car and drove to Wyoming to pick them up and drive back through Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. From day one my Bluetooth system didn't work properly. I would have refused delivery of the vehicle were it not for the fact that cousin bought one as well and the dealer in Wyoming convinced me it was a bad head unit but they didn't have a replacement in stock. Got home to my local dealer and it was in the shop for seven weeks straight. Got it back in early August after having almost all summer with no new Jeep.

That left a bad taste in my mouth so I sold it and lost a ton of money. I swore I'd never own another Chrysler product again but the Wrangler keeps calling my name.

We'll see what Acid Yellow looks like but Baja was pretty close to perfect. When I saw that color announced for 2015 and saw the picture in the brochure I thought I had found the holy grail. Sucks big time Jeep couldn't have built me one that worked properly.

The closest I came to "seeing" it was cross referencing the color code on a Dodge Challenger.

Crush was one of my favorites. I got real hot for a new JK in 2012 when I explored Colorado on a DR650. They were raffling this Crush JK and I spent $300 buying 120 tickets. Why 120 you ask? Because they only had 12,000 to sell. So by buying 120 I had a 1% chance of winning. Before you laugh, remember the odds of winning Megamillions or Powerball is 350,000,000:1. My odds for that Crush JK were comparatively pretty good.

Love Ouray. Was there a few years back and want to get there again. I've done the raffle a few times. I also love Crush and sometimes I wish I'd gone with that color when I see one on the road instead of the Deep Cherry Crystal Pearlcoat. Of course, if I had, I probably would wish the other way!!

Crush was also one of my favorites, just wasn't the right time for me. I sure wish they'd bring that color back.

I liked Deep Cherry Red, as well as the similar Chili Pepper Red. My all time favorite, however, will always be Copperhead.

Agree with CP Red... but for some reason Copperhead never got alot of love it seems. I for one would love to see it return for one last time.
