I'm new on this board. I have my JKUR Billet on order. I find it interesting that there are lots of CG pictures on the site but so few Billet. I started out ordering CG, but quickly changed when I saw the actual color...it's baby food pea green. Switched to Billet. Anxiously waiting.

Picked up my Billet JKUR yesterday!

It is hard to get a good picture of the true color but looks great in person.

At the dealership they had a 2012 silver close enough I could do a quick compare back and forth. My opinion, this new Billet color is definitely closer to gray then white and has what I think is some small blue flake in it. Pictures posted so far are a good representation of the color overall.

I will try to post some good ones as well.

After all the pictures posted im 90% sure I want to pull the trigger on Billet... I think Commando green was a flop...and my other choice was Crush but I feel like I would get tired of such a loud color after awhile.... I think a Billet JKUR is in this guys future

Please do post some pics later. I'm glad to hear it's closer to gray.

I just posted this in another thread...

"The dealer around me that gets new colors in early FINALLY has some Commando Greens coming in. This is the same dealer that I went to to get pics of Winter Chill last year, and Billet last week.

I'll be able to see Commando Green and Billet under the same conditions at the same time. "

I'm in a similar situation. Commando Green was my original choice, but Billet is rising up my rankings while Commando Green is falling a bit. Dozer (instead of Crush) would probably be my 3rd choice. (And the clock is running out to order Dozer).

I guess one issue that I have is that I'm not really "in love" with any of them (not the way I loved Sahara Tan and Mango Tango). Maybe it will be better in person, but Commando Green isn't what I expected, and I simply despise silver vehicles.....so there is a love/hate relationship with both CG and Billet for me depending on the light.

I started out thinking I wanted Commando Green...then started seeing pictures of it and backed off that color. I ordered Billet and almost switched to Deep Cherry Red after seeing this picture:



Almost made the switch...but I'm sticking with Billet. I think long term I'll be happier with it. Also, I think it looks a bit "classier" than the bright colors.

I like this color. I was optimistic regarding CG but was disappointed that is so "blah" I was hoping for more of an OD color. I bet billet will have better resale....and it will look great with black accents....keep the photos coming!

my current car I have had for a while now, I love silver and wanted a change of pace since I see silver everyday. My last Jeep was white which is my final safe choice when all else fails. I'm going billet since Pat at Fields jeep told me anvil might be only available on the anniversary Rubicon

One of my all-time favorites is Candy Apple Red. This Deep Cherry Red is the closest color Jeep is currently making. The local Jeep dealer had a Cherry Altitude which was worth looking at twice. It's not a 'bright' color at all - just a very classy deep red. If you want bright, check out the Red Rock Lobster when it comes out. Billet is definitely a classy choice too, altho I haven't seen one in person yet.

I'd like to see a pic of Billet and Silver together.

I've got a DCR JKUR on the way... even though it's been available for awhile now, I'm still stoked for the color!

At what point can you track via Insight? I have my VIN, but I just get an error when I go to insight using it. I thought I would be able to see my status on insight, regardless of what it was, once I had my VIN.

I'm still in Production Scheduled status, but my dealer said the tentative ship date is 10/6.

Same here. Insight is just telling me that my vehicle can't be found, and I also have a VIN. Have been in Production Scheduled for 6 weeks now, with zero useful updates from Jeep or my dealer. So GD frustrating...

Seems there's no way around it, Billet is silver. A bit darker than bright silver, but silver none the less. I'm sticking with it, but I wish it was a bit darker.

I can't get it to work. I know my vin is correct as it's what I used to log into VOTS. I'm double checking with my dealer. If you have any other thoughts on how to make this work, please let me know.

Agreed, nice Jeep, but a bit more silver than I would prefer. I'm basically 35/35/30 on Commando Green, Billet, and Dozer.
