And this 3 week old release has what bearing on the 2012 Wrangler??

The pigment issue (Japan) should be long resolved by then.

How exactly would this been long resolved if one of the factories that supplied the pigments has actually been fully destroyed in Japan?

It would Chrysler paint options will be limited to those colors listed for the model year 2012.

We were told that those colors are out for the remainder of the 2011 model year. Nothing about those colors being out for 2012.

"one of the factories".

There is no way the world car industry is going to sit on its hands without pigment until a plant in Japan gets around to rebuilding itself.

There have been reports of alternative sources being retained. It's just a matter of ramping up their production.
