I think is color is going to be something close to Porsche's Guards Red or the red that's on the new Focus. Bright red with a slight hint of orange

That could be nice. Since billet was not what I thought it was I'm keeping my options open. I'm thinking how can they go from one bright red to another without adding a hue from another color. Orange hues in red could be cool.

Sorry, but I can't help but think of the B52 song "Rock Lobster"....

Somebody posted on the forum a pic from a Toledo paint factory of what could possibly be rock lobster. If that was the color of it I would be more than happy to order it sight unseen.

I hope it looks as good as Flame Red did. I chose to go with Gecko when I ordered but Flame Red was a very close second choice.

I just sold my Harley to get my jeep. When I make up my mind of course.

If the Jeep Rock Lobster is the same as the Harley version that will be the business!

I have been hoping it will be the same or VERY similar.

I've been on fence about the color. I like bright red, just afraid it could be pinky. If you order it and when it comes in you don't like it, do you lose deposit or anything.

I'm hoping it's going to turn out to be similar to the reddish orange paint job on the f150 raptors.

Looks like it might be a faded red....never been a true fan of any red, but looking forward to seeing the real deal anyhow.

I suspect this varies from dealer to dealer -- but mine said tough luck. If the vehicle arrives and you don't want it, they keep the deposit. So time to look for a new dealer?

They also said that the order can't be changed after it's placed, so no changing my mind on the color.

I wish they had kept Flame Red. Perhaps Rock Lobster will be better but I would sure feel better about ordering if I could see a real picture of a Jeep in Rock Lobster or better yet -- a real life example.

If orders are open now, when will the first units hit the dealer lots?

Thanks!

my dealer said that the only time they keep deposits is when people order unsellable vehicles. like 4 door/ no power anything but with leather. 500 bucks isn't that much to lose anyway considering you're custom ordering a 25K+ something and then bailing. serves you right!

I'm pretty sure it's illegal for them to keep your deposit if you don't purchase, but I could be wrong.

The thing that blows my mind is that Jeep doesn't have shots of every color before they release them to put on there website. I will never understand this, they could easily set up a picture backdrop and take pretty nice pictures in every color as they develop these new colors.
