I can guarantee it will be easier to keep clean than black. I had a white cherokee before my black SRT and I can honestly say this will be the last black vehicle I ever own!

Re: 2014 GC SRT Bright White...order locked !

When I wash my black jeep, within 1 hour you can see a fine layer of dust and it really stands out against the black, for some reason. On my white jeep it would still be dusty but you wouldn't notice it till you got close to it. Don't get me wrong both colors are hard to keep clean but the dirt/dust is definitely more noticeable on the black. It got to the point already that I don't even care about washing my jeep cause within an hour it looks like crap, in my eyes.

My next srt will be the bright white, no hesitation. The only thing I would do is color match the grill.

The only reason I can live with the black is that it is the fastest color.

Also if you get a scratch on a black vehicle it is more noticeable,compare to a white,it has already been establish by the color experts that white is easy to keep clean and maintain.

Don't forget about the damn swirl marks as well. No matter how careful I have been I see damn swirl marks in the black

That's all I use, since the day I got it. The swirls marks aren't that bad but they are there if you look at the right spot and angle.

It's a Jeep - dirty isn't a bad thing

I owned a black sports car earlier in life - from brand new so it had perfect paint through to swirls etc. Still, looked amazing when clean and when dirty... not so bad.

Invoice price

Below invoice price by x

Now i may not the smartest tool in the shed but no one sells below their costs if they did they would go bankrupt in a week.

Just don't buy the sales pitch
