That's a good question. I'm guessing if someone wanted to order a loaded JKUHR in HyperGreen with matching fenders and top... the dealer might think twice about how long it might sit on their lot if the person ordering backs out.

I made sure my deposit was refundable when I ordered my Tank sight unseen. They said it was...then when I went to pick it up they tried to low ball me on my trade and said I was going to forfeit my deposit. Shady dealer. Get it in writing that the deposit is 100% refundable. If they won't do it, go somewhere else.

With the Aluminum body expected next year, I am hoping the colors will be matted and if so I will take an orange one for sure! Blue looks good as well.

Aluminum doors maybe, not an aluminum body.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

When does FCA traditionally release the line-up of colors for the new MY? June...July? I understand new colors may be released throughout the MY with different special packages, but, I'm talking about the basic line-up. I'm most interested in what's replacing Hydro Blue and if there will be an Orange added back.

Anyway, thanks in advance...and thanks for all of the info you guys provide on this forum!

Even basic line-up colors announced at the very start of the model year, may not actually go into production until much later. For example, Mojave Sand was in the first printing of the 2016 brochure, but didn't ship until just recently.

For what its worth, my dealer told me that
"Jazz Blue" was replacing Hydro Blue. He had no idea what it would look like.

Man that's the truth... between rumors of Xtreme Purple, Sarge Green... Mojave not available til late in the build. Heck, look at Hyper Green.
As far as what date the initial colors are first announced I'm trying to remember that myself... any idea Walt? Late July possibly?

Well you got me thinking Bob... just checked out the Fiat site to see what blues are available seeing as how Mojave was used on them and Rhino. There is a cool looking medium blue metallic that looks good... but there's also one called Celeste Blue. All I can say is I can't post Celeste Blue here without possibly being kicked out of Jeep Garage. It's not so good. ; (
This is the year for me... I'm taking the color choices seriously.

Historically it has started appearing end of June beginning of July on the info threads but chips for the previously unknown colors have appeared a little later than that depending on when they would release.
