Truth!

I get waaaay more attention in my Deep Impact Blue '14 Mustang GT, while doing the speed limit, than my wife has ever got, while driving like a yahoo in her lifted JKUR's, and she's had a red '07, a blue '12, and a red '14.

Re: Red colored Wrangler a cop magnet?

Years ago BMW did a study and came to the same conclusion regarding white. From a physics standpoint, white reflects all wavelengths of visible light so it makes sense it is the move visible color. I can also see issues where it blends in and a color like tennis-ball yellow stands out. My motorcycle helmet is that same shade of yellow and I get lots of comments on how visible it makes me. It is ugly, but may save my life.

Get the color you WANT and drive safely.

They found that white is the most visible at night, and lime yellow stands out best against cloudy skies and snowy backdrops.

If the main concern is visibility, you would be better off with Baja Yellow over Firecracker Red on a new Wrangler.

Re: Red colored Wrangler a cop magnet?

Years ago I had a red Camaro and got pulled over because I was speeding.
The cop told me I saw you coming a mile away. I started buying black cars from the on for awhile.
Point is as he was radaring cars the red on stuck out.
Same thing happened on a really bright blue Corvette as well.
