Hey TopTomato, to access the '13 colors, just follow this progression - Jeep main page - Shopping Tools - Build & Price a Vehicle - 2013 Vehicles - then select a JK or JKU - then select a model - and click Next.

Or, forget all that, and just click this link.

Jeep - Build & Price - Colors

Hopefully, they'll have a dedicated 2013 webpage up soon.

Oh yes! Well, I'm still putting together the shopping list in my head (also pinged Joe at Quadratec, as you suggested), but I'm pretty sure the aftermarket goodies are going to start piling up weeks before my Billet JKUR gets here!

Nope; all I have so far is the "congratulations" email from ordertracking@Jeep.com (rec'd 16 Aug), which promised me the VOTS login information when my Jeep is scheduled for production. Is there a way to get this information quicker? If so, I might as well start obsessing now!

My Fleet guy that i bought my Jeep from emailed me my von # so i went on vots and all my info is there name etc etc and the options that i picked and it says production scheduled. Its already been through confirmation. Next step is frame but i dont think thats going to happen until sept 4th?

Doh! I had the VON already, printed on my "Priced Order Confirmation" (POC) sheet. Sure enough, I was able to log on to VOTS with the VON and my last name; lo and behold, there it was, "Production Scheduled"!!!

Still no dates or any other specifics, but at least all the vehicle details check out. Guess I'll be logging on to VOTS several times a day from now on!

Thanks for letting me know. Looks like a couple of us will be in a close race for the first 2013 JK Billet to be delivered!

Door leeks, and primary problems were the dealers i went to did not do any of the repairs properly and just made things worse every time. At the last trip the doors leaked top by the header and by the sound bar and rear hatch glass.

Yeah.. definitely black rubicon decals.. will they be silver in production ? That is a nice subtle thing to customize. reflective black could be cool. Not feeling the black rims though.. i think the the silver sets it off and balances it better.. to each, their own though.. thats part of the beauty of jeeps!

Nice color choice! Iam not sure about the black hardtop fading as this will be my first jeep. But looking at jeeps around town doesnt look like the hardtop fades or atleast that much to notice... i know 4.10 is better for towing

Yeah, that doesn't look at all like Dodge's Billet Metallic! I'm hoping for a darker color as well; this one is just like Bright Silver. Since most of the other '13 colors also look out of whack (and too bright), I'm hoping this was just a "quick & dirty" photoshop job without much basis in reality...

Keeping my fingers crossed....
