I'm still hoping Billet is somewhat darker than the "actual" pictures that have been in this forum. Manufacturers have been known to reformulate paints during a model year. When I had fender flares painted to match my '08 Tundra, the body shop had several swatches for the color name on that vehicle and I was surprised at how different they were. The color chart at the dealer shows Billet as being quite a bit darker than Bright Silver. I'm getting ready to order a new JK in the next few days and plan to order Billet. So far, I'm at 2.2% below invoice and the dealer has offered to deliver it to me in Moab, 240 miles from the dealership.

That "one out there somewhere" can found searching Cars.com .... its on a dealer lot in Florida. What is strange is why only one... I would think they would build a batch the same color and we would see more in the distribution network.

Yes, easy on Cars.com. That's how I've keeping tabs on the various colors and dealers with pics. Auto Trader search engine sucks.

After you search Jeep Wrangler Unlimited off the main page, you can filter the year, style, color on the sidebar to the left... It even shows how many are out there next to the color choices.

Edit:
Make sure when you load your zip code you change the search default miles "Within" to "All miles" in the dropdown menu... scroll all the way down to the bottom.

Just noticed on Cars.com there's three Unlimited's listed out there, one under "sliver" and two under "gray" .....

All three are Sahara models. There's five more Sport models if you remove and change the filter to Wrangler.

But no pics yet ...

It just got a update on 9/13 with 2013's so I'm thinking that's stock pic from new brochure for 2013 wranglers.
The app has a few other pics that look like Dune and Rock Lobster.

I know it would be off topic, post the others. I may be interested in Dune.

I put down 500. The salesman said I only had to put down 100 bucks but I had 500 hundred in my pocked so I figured I will throw it down before I spend it on something stupid.

No email, but I have not received any. I don't think the dealer has my email address.
