LS1LT1's picture is probably the best one I have seen for showing the color. It is a very unphotogenic paint, most of the pics show a lighter pastely blue. As someone else said in this thread, it is definately a Skittles color. Or, as the lot boy at one of the local dealers described it - "gnarley"!

Actually, you proved me correct. Taking just this one example of yours, 2015 was not the First Year of the JK.

While any particular vehicle can have a problem, and yes, that can be very frustrating, my point is that problems don't only happen for the first year.

It is a solid/non-metallic.

Re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

After finally getting all the mods done it was time for a shake down ride in the Arizona desert. After a 130 miles of dirt roads, sand washes, and a little climbing, no rattles and no problems at all. The TeraFlex 3" lift works fine and rides nice. Thought ya'll might enjoy a few pics. Especially if it's still winter where you are.

Sorry Bud, no Wrangler is done being modded. You've only taken your first baby step! Congrats on a sharp looking rig.

Very true! But done for now. After the long wait to build, then delivery, then bolting on parts, I'm ready to go play for a bit.

I think it was about 75 degrees yesterday out in Alamo Valley between Yucca and Wikieup. Windy today and getting ready for California's storm tonight & tomorrow. Snow tonight at home in Utah.
