re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Looks like the 2017 wrangler will skate by on the camera requirement:

"The rules will be phased in over several years. Automakers will be required to have compliant rearview systems in 10 percent of the vehicles they build from May 1, 2016, to May 1, 2017. That share rises to 40 percent for the next year and 100 percent starting on May 1, 2018.

Love the Chief color - I wonder how close to VW's Silk Blue it will be... Could make trading in the Golf that much easier

Man, after googling Navajo Turquoise, pics of that color seem to be all over the place.

I agree my friend. That Navajo is nice and the Chief swatch looks good too but it will be hard to tell until I see it on a Jeep. I swiped back and forth between the Chief Sample and the Chief concept and they don't look exactly the same either.

The concept looked almost baby blue to me. The sample is def. more turquoise. Either way, I love seeing the new colors in the wild. Except XP. I don't want to see XP. Especially XP on an HR.

Interesting. I was under the impression before it was a hard line at the 2017 model year. I guess it makes sense to not necessarily force the change until a new model is released. I can still hope that it's at least an option on the 2017s. Mine is hard enough to see out of now with the spare tire on the back. I can't imagine how the 4 door guys can see anything behind them.

Is there a hydro and cosmos color chip from the same image source for comparison to chief?

I found these in google images come from a touch up site paint scratch. Hydro looks a little off but close. Cosmos looks further off. I think they just use the RGB mix to generate the squares. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1469587216.698646.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1469587231.268855.jpg

Here Hypergreen is selling as soon as it hits the lot. I've only seen one parked in front of a dealer and it was gone the next day.

I've never seen it, but if I do, I'll have to park beside and see how close it actually is to Gecko. It looks really close in pictures, but maybe a bit lighter.
