2013's limited colors??

I've been waiting for the 2013's to be released to custom order one in Flame Red and they currently don't offer it?! Does anyone know why this is?
Thx

Rock Lobster is the closest you're going to get this year. Jeep loves to switch up colors throughout the year. Sometimes they only make them for a couple months.

Flame red was never a color that was available for the 2013. Jeep has a few hold over colors from 2012, but they are only around until paint runs out from those colors.

Rock Lobster should be opening for order around Sept 12. Maybe that'll do it for you.

It is important to note that you can typically order a color the month prior to its production. Billet and Commando were order-able in August.

I see that.... note CG's were delivered before 9/4. Not sure when these production schedules were released.. the latest update was on August 28th, but didn't see an impact on the Wrangler.

According to this data, there are different sales codes for Billet Metallic... this may imply its a different color for the Jeep line.

Jeep Wrangler (PX8)

Chrysler 300 / 300C (PSC)

My best guess was that they didn't expect the demand they had for Commando and started early.... especially if they have a lot of Commando orders and not much of other colors. They won't stand around doing nothing just because a date hasn't been reached yet.

That kills me, my 95' is flame red. It's such a staple color. Wonder how close that red lobster will be...I guess there are always the 2012's...

The red of 2012 (deep cherry) is still available on the 13s if you do it soon.

Here's the swatch for Rock Lobster vs Flame Red. Take it with a grain of salt.

That's a bad ass color. On a bright sunny day you get pearl metallic or under night light too. At night or clouds you get flat deep monochromatic looking red. Bad ass! I should know. Lol

Directed at the color, not you. I don't know you. Don't be so grandiose.
