It was partly cloudy late in the day and it appeared silver to me no matter the light conditions. so I just put a dp on a baby poo green Sahara Unlimited, because the billet was too light and the tru-blu too dark, the rest of the colors too Smurf. I wanted Black fenders and Goodriches but that would have meant moving up to a Rubicon, and I can just barely swing the Sahara. I hope I didn't make a mistake with the commando, there's none around here yet to look at.

Did you forget about DCR? I don't think it could ever be called "too smurf"...

I've already contacted Chrysler Incentives. They located and confirmed my certificate but say they can't really do anything because the program rules specifically state that there is "no sold order protection." So unless the program is extended again orI take delivery by Oct. 31, I seem to be screwed.
I got that card in the mail too. I think the incentive was for 2012 model only.

Nope...the people in the incentives department confirmed for me that it could be used with a 2013. I specifically told them the vehicle I was looking at.

Here is every pic of Billet so far..








I need to go back and take more pictures of Billet in bright light. If it is really closer to the below pic in the light...I'll love it.


I have not seen Commando Green in person yet, but the pictures of it in the light have me a bit bummed. I guess I dodged a bullet when I tried to order it sight unseen but they didn't offer the saddle interior. When I went and looked at Billet, it reminded of the silver in Winter Chill.

All of the incentives that I've been sent from Chrysler in the past few months apply ONLY to 2012 models. Or at least that's what they say in the small print. Billet is a really nice color though. Best one they have offered since Sahara Tan. MUCH better than CG.

I've had two different $500 bonus cash incentives that have applied to both the 2012's and 2013's. The first one I got was way back in early June or so that had expired August 7th. In early September, I got another one at a different zip that expires in November. I wish I could get my hands on a $1000 bonus reward!

The more I see Billet, the more I like it. But it may be an issue of me simply not liking the pics of Commando Green as much as I thought I would.

Sahara Tan, Mango Tango, Natural Pearl Green, and Winter Chill are still my favorites (in that order). Plus some of the older colors like Red Rock Crystal Pearl and Dark Charcoal Pearl.

Now....it is a toss up of Commando Green, Billet, Dozer, White, and maybe Rock Lobster. But it seems like a lot of the 2013's colors that I thought I would love are all just a shade off.

Commando Green = too much yellow
Billet = too much silver (maybe)
Dune = too much peach (maybe)
Rock Lobster = too much orange/pink (maybe)
Anvil = too much time between now and when it is available!

I'm afraid to order any of those colors sight unseen.....

I have one of the $1000 bonus cash certificates, however it says it expired Sept 4 and is for 2012 models.. I can only hope they extended it to the end of Oct and is good for 2013's cause my Jeep is still NOT BUILT...

Gt I live in the Chicago area. I'd be happy to drive it down for you lol. Where is your dealer. I might find time to go take a look at it and send you some pics.

My dealer told me my billet unlimited rubicon with 6speed manual is scheduled to ship on 10-5. I ordered it 8-31. getting closer.

I saw a Rubicon parked on Main Street in Moab yesterday (surprise). It was a color I have never seen on a Jeep before. I'm hoping it was Billet. This vehicle was heavily modified (lift, tires, wheels, bumpers, trektop, etc) and looked absolutely brand new. The top/windows looked new. The tires looked brand new. The interior looked new. The bumpers looked new. It had South Carolina plates. I parked behind it hoping the owner would return so I could ask if it was a 2013 and was the Billet color. He (she?) did not return while I was there. The color was significantly darker than the 2012 silver and the letters on the hood were white. If the color wasn't Billet, it's everything I hope Billet will be.

Has anyone gotten a Billet JKUR manual transmission yet? The nice lady at Jeep says she has no idea when mine will actually be assembled just that it is gateline ready.

Seems to be a bit of a red tint to that silver.

...seriously, though...it looks sweet. I'd be happy with that color without a doubt. At this point, though, it doesn't matter if I'll be happy with it or not, it's already ordered.

Ocho, Pat at Fields Jeep has mine on the lot. Feel free to get som epics if you are around that area. I will be there at 10:00 am(if not a little early) to pick her up Friday. Saturday will install, Ace rails, Hitch, Door sill protection (all stored in my office for the last five months - originally purchased for the blown up 2012 long story) and after lunch will start the 3 inch BDS lift, remove TPMS sensors and install in new Moto Metals with 315/70R17 MTX. Hopefully I will finish late in the day. Check Alignment and such on Monday and flash the Procal Monday as well. That should get me started... Of course there will be before, after and knuckl busting pictures...

Came in a Day early! Just got her home. I'll try to get some pics up tomorrow.
I am a "Silver" fan and I think it's a perfect shade. Maybe two shades darker than bright silver, definitely not as dark as the Jeep build site has it or some of the other Jeep ads I've seen. The Rubi above pics are spot on, just wasn't sure until I saw it myself.
Looks awesome with the black fenders. Does appear to change shades depending on lighting conditions.

Sort of -- my JKUR stick billet/black/black/saddle & black cloth came in last night and is awaiting me at the dealer. Should be able to get it tmw!

Ordered 8/14, so pretty much 6 weeks to the lot.

I haven't seen any of these in person mind you, but I think Billet is the sharpest one I have seen pics of. The Commando Green is horrible, just so far off. The Dune might look good I think, it will be interesting to see(Sahara Tan is one of my favorites). But, for my money, if I were ordering right now it would either be Billet or take the chance on Anvil. My fear with Anvil would be that of black, that it will never look as good as it does the first day you bought it. Billet is light enough to surrive the wear and tear.

I was told that anvil could possibly be an anniversary only color on the rubicon.
