Yeah, that's more like it! A little darker than Bright Silver, and not too gray. I agree, that'll look sweet, especially with all the black accents.

If you look closely this is called Billet Silver on the Jeep Website... I'm glad they didn't go darker. The old Bright Silver was too light.

I am loving the color the more pictures come out. Prior was very dark and it's looking more like bright silver. I can't wait till Monday when mine should hit priority build status.

Based on that pic of the 200 above, I can't wait to see actual pics of a '13 in this color.....

Seems like a lot of people are pulling for light sliver in this thread. I am hoping for dark!

I was waiting to order billet. I thought it was going to be darker based on the 2013 color PDF posted in the 2013 information thread. If it is that light I'll probably go with a different color. I would like a darker more grey silver...not almost white metallic.

Need to go check out a bullet Didge in person now. Either way it's silver... Just subtlety darker or lighter depending on the light I guess? I'm guessing it's just a little darker than the current bright silver? Would like to get a photo if them side by side- a bullet dodge next to a bright silver wrangler. Im not in love with any of the new colors yet... Makes my decision tough! This is my year to buy! Hopefully before first snow.

The picture of the 200 up above looks great, with the Rubicons black top, fenders, wheels and other black parts its going to look awesome. Any darker then it wouldnt be silver it be gray.

I am really anticipating what Billet is going to look like with the Sahara rims. I think it is going to look great with the darker rubi rims for sure...

I think a darker silver would look pretty good - I'm not really a fan of silver cars, but the darker the better. A sort of gun metal would be an interesting look.

That's what I picture Anvil being like.

Insert 50 shades of grey joke here.

The more I see black wheels , and they do seem to be everywhere now... The less I like them. Some visual contrast goes a long way. It seems I'm I'm the minority with my opinion though. Even if I don't like them for me, I love seeing people doing their own thing and everyone making their ride their own.

Great. Just great. I was just planning on grabbing a black 2013 equipped to my liking off of a dealer's lot this weekend and then I catch a glimpse of this cool billet color. Black is nice, but I love the billet. Now, since I only buy what's on the lot so I can scrutinize the snot out of it, I'll have to wait until some billets start trickling in to the dealer lots. This forum really knows how to tug on my love/hate buttons (love the info, hate when it makes me ponder).

To each their own but I, for one, will be glad when the black wheel fad is dead....

I'm with you guys on the black wheel thing being over-played. Of course, there are still people with Members Only jackets, mullets, etc. running around so I suspect we'll still be seeing black wheels for a long, long time.

Wheathertech black mats front and rear
Gorilla wheel locks
Bestop black spare tire cover

Planning on some more goodies i have a feeling this will never end.

Emailed Jeep today to see if they have my vin # sure enough they did... "At the present time, your vehicle is in a status of "Production Scheduled". An alternate resource also confirms that your vehicle is in the status of Gateline Schedule - Order Ready To Proceed On The Line"
