I'm guessing that Chief will be pretty close to this: http://blog.caranddriver.com/wp-cont...01-876x535.jpg

It's hard to tell until you see these colors in person. The chips don't always look like reality. Tank was almost black on the chip and it is a million different shades of green depending on the light.

True. Given that the concept was called "Chief" and the color chip looks very similar, I'd venture a guess that it wouldn't be far off.

Hard to believe the 2017 order banks open in just a few days... hopefully with that some of these mysteries might be solved. Which colors are available and with what model, etc.

The dealership I buy from doesn't have computers on their desks like most. I think that I will go to a different dealership first that does, so I can actually see pricing and such first. Then I can go to mine and order. I doubt the Jeep website will be updated by then so it's the only way to see.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So I'm seeing "late availability " on extreme purple. What does that mean? spring maybe? Or after the first of the year? If so that's a good thing for me, less pressure and more time to save up a little more down payment!! ��

Are we 100% sure the Hypergreen will not be available on the Hard Rock? We were told that for 2016, but it ended up being available.

Very true. We go thru this all the time. Its normal and should be expected.

There is a very limited number of paint colors that can be offered at the same time. To add a new one, requires a current color to be dropped.

Also, we can sometimes gleam a hint as to when a surprise color will become available, when the schedule shows there is an "empty chair" at the paint color table.

Its pretty standard that only the carry over colors are available for early orders.
