If you want to see the color on a vehicle go to your dealership, there were about 5 different Dodges/Chryslers on my local lot to see the Billet Metallic paint on..

I wouldn't bet a paycheck on that assumption ... they've already deviated from the color name on the Jeep website, the web pages are a far cry from the color you posted from a chip that was released months ago.

Jeep has been changing colors like they change their underwear.

Its not too difficult to get web pages to reflect color accuracy... especially since they already have digital chips. The variation comes into play with different monitors. Your chip looks nothing like their web pages.

Something fishy going on with this color. The Pea Soup Green is fairly accurate. Time will tell who is wrong...

OK, lets be clear. I was just trying to have a little fun with photoshop. I never said it was 100% accurate. If I knew you were going to get all bent out of shape, I would not have posted it. The fact is, I ordered a vehicle and my order sheet says "Sales Code PSC, Billet Silver Metallic Clear Coat". This is the same sales code as you can get on other Dodge/Jeep/Chrysler products. Chrysler would not produce 2 different colors under the same sales code. As KThrash said, if you want to see the color, go to your dealer. Also, if you had been reading, the Jeep website has 2 different pictures for the billet. There is a lighter one in the 2013 pictures, and a darker one if you build a 2013. So, I would not trust the website...bottom line, go look at the color in person...

Just went to a Chrysler dealer and scoped a 300 in billet. Anyone else notice a slight blue hue to it? I'm hoping it won't be as noticeable on a wrangler with black accents.

I honestly cannot see the difference between bright silver on the 2012 website and billet on the 2013 website? I agree the build and order webpage for billet looks totally different from the other pictures. Looking forward to seeing the real thing in a month or two.

I agree! So, here is my last shot with photoshop. I went to the dealer and got a picture of a Silver 2012 JK and a Billet 2013 200. The 1st 2 pics are untouched, and the 3rd was adjusted to get closer to the 200. I don't claim to be a photoshop pro, but this is what I came up with. I really like the color. It's going to look good on a Rubi!! Can't wait....

I went by the dealership to take a look at Billet. First impressions were it is much lighter than I had hoped. However, it is noticeably darker than bright silver. It has a lot of "sparkle" with the metallic paint in the sun. It will look great, I was just hoping for more of a tungsten color.

In that third pic you can see the blue hue I was talking about. Did you notice that at all?

Yeah, me too! Got the Weathertech liners and Mopar door sill protectors on the way, and will undoubtedly order more goodies before my JKUR gets here.

I sure hope mine is among the first ones to be built/painted when 9/4 comes around. My VOTS has not been updated since mid-August...

kthrash, if your JKUR also has saddle leather we're pretty much twins!

I might be able to find it by searching but where or how do you find out the build is in D1 status and get a ship date? I have only been notified twice that it is in VOTS and that today all the parts are ready to start production.
???? Some help here????

That's pretty sharp looking. I normally don't like the painted fenders and top but I have to admit it is growing on me, especially in that color
