Forgive my ignorance but could you explain what that means?

Thank you.

It means that after October Allocation both Winter Chill and Rugged Brown can no longer be ordered. I posted it so folks that are thinking of ordering a GC in one of those colors know to get their orders in asap. Both colors will be gone.

Bummer. I was hoping that the rugged brown would stick around for the 2014 diesel Overland Summit or other models potentially.

I liked the winter chill color but not on the jeep. It just didn't fit IMO.

Any idea of what colors might replace the brown and the chill?

Or do you think they will revamp all the color choices for the refresh?

Thank you.

I think we will see new colors for the refresh. I know rugged brown will be available this year on the Wranglers.

I agree on the winter chill, I just don't like it on a GC. Rugged brown is beautiful IMO.

Makes sense as I saw this on Donlen.com



Final production is scheduled to end:
  • Rugged Brown Pearl Coat (PTW) - 11/01/12
  • Mineral Gray Metallic Clear Coat (PDM) - 11/21/12
  • Winter Chill Pearl Coat (PBA) - 11/26/12
  • Bright Silver Metallic Clear Coat (PS2) - 12/14/12
Was told Donlen was pretty accurate source for this type of info.

I really do like the Winter Chill...so I bought one. :) That said, it's nice that you posted the warning so that folks who do want those colors can get in the queue. I do hope that they have some lighter colors available going forward for folks who want the Summit as there are many of us who will not buy a dark color, such as black, dark grey, dark brown, etc.

I hope I didn't offend you, I post info that I think might be useful but I also voice my own opinion.

I know what I like wont be what you like and I'm good with that.
