Will these colors be available to order all year (amp'd & granite) or will they close at a specific time when others open?

Who knows...
That is the thrill of buying a new Wrangler. My pure guess it that granite will be around all year because there will always be some shade of silver or gray offered. But maybe Granite is a short term color and Billet stays? Amp'd? Again, who knows....probably depends on how popular it is.

Thanks.
Just have a picture of it being unloaded from the hauler so far but our's appears to just have the standard rails. I had hoped so as I planned to install ACE rails underneath 'em almost immediately.

Granite is so close to billet silver, I had my Jeep right next to a granite GC at dealer. Just a TAD. Darker, so close of colors in my book

Billet and Granite are the opposite ends of the gray spectrum IMO. I have a Granite Crystal Charger R/T and friends of ours have a Billet '13 JKR. Not even close. The Granite is a charcoal gray w/ a bunch of silver metal flake in it. The Billet is a light silver with metal flake but that one shows some beautiful pink and blue in the flake in the sunshine.

^Billet isn't light silver.

I despise light silver...and the pictures of Billet online almost made me not get Billet.
Billiet is storm/smoke gray with TONS of metal flake it it. The flake is what makes Billet look brighter (in the light) than what it really is.

This is a close-up shot of Billet.



Here is Billet, Bright Silver, and Tungsten lined up.


Bright Silver is at the opposite end of the spectrum.

That first shot is NOT representative of what Billet looks like. That looks like the Granite on my Charger and Billet is NOT that dark.

Here's my Charger. Granite Crystal. I just want those that don't see these in person to have a good idea of what the colors are.

Was trying to read older forum messages from last year, to get an idea on how far into the model year the Freedom Editions are traditionally released. It appeared to me that last year they were in people's hands in October. Does anyone remember when you could start ordering them last year, the year before or both? Searching on those terms brings up TONS of hits.

Also, does anyone know if you can get a Freedom Edition in a hard or dual top?

I'm thinking you will be able to order in September and yes you can opt for the hard top or dual top group.

That is a bad pic of Billet in the light. Billet is very hard to photograph...especially if overexposed. The flakes blend together, and it looks like solid bright silver, but it isn't. In almost every pic online, Billet looks like silver...it is hard to find one that shows what it really looks like.


When I saw early online pics of Billet, I thought it was just another version of light silver that I would hate. What I had originally wanted was something like Granite or Tungsten.....until I saw it up close.

Here are the paint chips side by side. As I said, in bad pics, Billet looks like Bright Silver.


Here is Billet in better lighting. I remember when this pic was first posted, I kept thinking....I hate parts of the hood, but I love the grill. What is the real color?



This is the Jeep promotional pic. This is what I was hoping Billet would look like....and it does look like that....sometimes.


I remember taking this photo and posting it because I wanted to show how different Billet looked compared to some of the early photos taken. I almost purchased this one....but ordered instead.




I'm not saying it is as dark as Granite, but it is isn't the opposite of Granite....that would be Bright Silver.

I just saw a new rubi at my local dealership and it did not have the 10a rails

Any pics on a sunny day, about 2PM in the afternoon, little puffy clouds dancing in the sky?

Just kidding, thanks for the pic. I was thinking about something along these lines. It just always seems like everyone takes pics after it rains...

Weather permitting tomorrow I'm more than happy to oblige! Will walk out at 2pm and snap some pics. I appreciate panthermark's pics but IMO, it really looks more like the Bright Silver chip than the Billet chip posted. It's not that dark.

That is the funny thing about that color.

When you say it looks more like the Bright Silver chip....I'd have to agree...because often when you see it in a lot of light, or in photos, it often looks like silver.

But on the flip side, the Billet chip is the actual color...that close up pic of the paint...I took that photo myself...but I got really close, so all the metal flake wasn't reflecting in the light....and the sun wasn't overhead.

Heck, when I take pics of my own Billet Sahara...it looks like Bright Silver in most of the photos. It is really hard to capture Billet in a photograph.

Go to the dealer, look at each color, form your own opinions. I swear... Have you ever tried to explain the color red to a person who was born blind?

Yes, I tell them it tastes like Tomatoes if it's bright red, or like choke cherries if it's dark red.

seriously though, as far the great silver debate goes, look at the 2000's model Buick regals, with the two tone paint jobs. Bright silver on top, granite on the bottom.

In all honesty, I think you two are arguing the same point just using different fact, like dozer and crush. They are both orange. People with different tastes are drawn to different oranges, crush looks horrible on my monitor, but love it in person. Billet and Granite will produce the same sort of results. We all know color is important to the individual but we all have different individual tastes.

Why is it we will debate colors on jeeps all day long, but if someone asked you the color of plates, or your towels answers would be blue, black, white, orange, red, green, graphic, etc. but here we are literally arguing over the amount of flake, and type of flake in a certain base color.

Rubicon X order date

Anyone have info on when the X package will be available to order on the 2014? Also, I've heard rumor of a back-up camera. Any info on these would help greatly. Glad to become a part of the crowd!

Freedom?

Just got confirmation of shipment from my 2014 sport s in Anvil! WOOO....but... It says "freedom edition?". Is this a mistake or am I going to have to deal with a grey grill and a big ass star on my hood when it gets here?

I did not even think the 2014 freedom editions were available to order yet?...maybe I just need to call my dealer.

I can say I was tired of waiting for the new color releases so I found a 2012 COD: MW3 still on a dealers lot with 26 miles so I snatched it up. I hate silver but the bumpers, hood, and interior make up for the color. I wanted Amp'd but the MD jeep dealers suck and wanted to only order me the available colors.
