I don't know Milkdudd... so far Gobi is looking okay to me. (agree re Sahara Tan though... )
Gobi and Chief... that's the decision I have to make.

I totally agree. I like the lighter tannish to cream color vs the brownish scheme. The thing about military colors is that there are a TON of variants to "green, tan, and brown".

In all fairness though, to each their own. I loved my Rescue Green. But by all accounts, it's a weird a** color.

As other people have posted, it would be amazing if you could pay extra for your own color choice. I would do it in a heartbeat, because then I would have a Jeep in Kelly Green...

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Edit: Nevermind. I read the posts below the one I quoted.

Given the issues with the first revision of the Pentastar that made it into the Wrangler in 2012 I hope they DON'T bring this engine into production. No Pentastar tick for me thank you.

What are the revisions and which models have you heard of it going into? If the displacement doesn't change, I don't see a gain in torque but peak hp might jump a bit. That is never a bad thing but it would be nice if they could raise the entire torque curve by 30 lb/ft.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Ram color choices are crazy to say the least. Last I checked there were three yellows and three greens? If I were ever deciding between two vehicles and could not make my mind up but one of them had 30 color offerings and one only 10, the choice would be the proverbial no brainer as I could get the exact color I am interested in.

I am surprised more manufacturers don't do this. Maybe switching paints on the fly is more costly than one imagines but since dealers only ever order black, dark gray, sort of dark gray, medium gray, gray, light gray, sort of light gray, silver, champagne-like silver, purplish silver, and white they can at least have more colors offered.

If Chief is going to look like I think it's going to look... it will look KILLER on a Willys. Let's hope its available across the board.

Firecracker red is super sharp in person. I went in for a different color but saw firecracker red and instantly knew I wanted it.

I will be sad to see it go but I'm trading it in for a Hyper Green. I will be ordering this week.
