I am assuming the 430N and the 730N haven't changed, can anyone confirm that?

Do you have a mockup for Rock Lobster as well

Thanks, Milious!

That is a great looking color and I really like the new wheels.

Curious...do you have the pic for Dune as well?

Quick, someone mock it up in DUNE! I have no skills other than drooling all over my keyboard and running numbers in my head!

Same and I thought I'd be ordering a Dune for sure but now I'm thinking it's going to be Commando for me.

There is a 2012 Sahara Tan Unlimited for sale only 88 miles from me and I'm so tempted. MUST...BE...STRONG!!!

That Commando is everything I was hoping it would be, and man I'm loving the new wheels. Just got wait for a mock-up of Anvil and decide between the two. Going to be a long, hard wait.

It sucks that Commando does not open until mid-September...BUT....that gives Jeep several more months to get though the supply of possible ticking engines.

O yeah, loving the commando green!

Now I've just got to wait for Jeep to accept orders for that color!

I can't tell you how happy I am!

Yes, start of production, ordering should open well ahead of that, don't have an exact date yet.

Could be a few months before the wheels would be available via parts... check out the Jeep etching/image in the wheel:

Placed 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon order



The one wild card here is that the system didn't have the new ALXV code for two-toned black/saddle leather seats. The old PLXV code for saddle seats is gone. I was told I could change options up to two weeks from now, and then the order is locked.

Does anybody know if this is a good price or if I am missing something? I have until the jeep comes in to watch for incentives and other stuff. I'm going to charge as many bills onto the Chrysler credit card between now and when I have to pay to build up points.

Regards,
Jeffrey

Shouldn't they have called it Commando 'Brown' or 'Khaki'...? I'm not seeing green as the predominate color in Commando... sucks...Rescue Green--bring it back!

Here is my rather poor photoshop of Dune.

Could not figure out exactly replace a color from the provided swatch so got as close as possible just using hue and saturation.

Ready to order the Commando JKU .... That green will save me some green....since it will look good with black top and fenders...will go with the sport...

....anyone know how much getting half doors from Jeep would cost?...just curious as I want both kinds (full with the hard top and halfs with the soft) but will most likely get them from quadratec (painted to match) but if the actually Jeep brand was about or close to the same $$$ would go that route

I'm not lovin' the wheels. They just don't scream "Rubicon" or even "off-road" to me for some reason. It looks like it should be on a STI. I do however love the etching.

This will take a bite out of the aftermarket wheel market! Not everyone will love these but they're 10x better than the old Rubicon wheels IMO, so much so that I likely won't be swapping them out. I've had much better luck with the durability of the finish on OEM wheels than aftermarket wheels over the past 20 years, New England winters really punish aftermarket wheels if you run them year round and I've yet to find one where the coating holds up like an OEM does.
