The fact that the fender and body are close in color is consistent with my viewing of a Grand Cherokee with Granite on it.

Click the picture twice to fully blow up size.

I just wanted to post b/c I know so many members were waiting on Granite



Glad I went with Bright White

Think the only other color we would've purchased was Dune

y'all need to send Pat @ fields couple gallons scotch, bourbon and ceegars, with the incessant pestering that he had to endure. IMO.

Yes, after seeing granite I'm pretty much sold on red.... Still want to see hydro first though.

Granite crystal looks Soo much like the mineral gray that is in the wheels. While mineral gray is a nice color (I have a durango that color). It just doesn't pop like some of the other colors.

LOL to all the people judging granite by a single picture... BTW, that is a freakin terrible picture. Is there a Jeep behind those two guys?

Granite is effing awesome in my eyes = all that matters to me.

I'm glad I ordered Anvil when I did....now I'd be paying more and arguing with myself between Anvil, Granite and Amp'd.

Granite is what I hoped Billet would look like, and while I love the "battleship" color of Anvil, Amp'd makes for a fantastic Purdue Jeep.

Maybe I can talk my wife into selling her Gecko to order Amp'd....

Glad you got yourself a blue jeep instead


I'm only having fun.

I'm waiting for someone who ordered a rock lobster to chime in on how glad they are that they bought it over a granite.

Question for Pat on the colors updated on the first post.

It now says, on the new colors:

GRANITE FIRST ORDER PERIOD 09/10/13 - 09/18/13

What does 'First order period' mean?

And...will there be any new colors in addition to those announced? (If you are allowed to divulge).

Thanks!

^^^ The less people that like Granite, the better. That will mean i won't see 100 other JK's the same as mine running around town Never want to be like the sheeple. Of course I'll be trying my best to personalize my new Sahara. Come on tomorrow.

My dealer is ordering a Granite and an Amp'd Rubi X spec'd the way I want it and I can take my pick.
He's at invoice plus the holdback..sounded like a good deal to me.
Now if we could just get the orders in...

I was hoping for something that wasn't so bland.
Something that had a nice contrast between the body and trim.
More Earth tone so I could disappear when tshtf in to the woods.

I agree. I need a couple more pics though. I have been wanting the granite Rubi or Sport with the X black wheels. If I decide against granite not sure which way to go...

BTW if I order one and anyone in Ohio wants to swap the mineral gray wheels for new black Rubi X wheels let me know

go to the SpiderWebShade FB page- there are more pics there. I don't personally like the black wheels all that much. I think the Granite will look good with the silver moabs that come on the sport.

I think it needs a black grill.

Don't give up on granite bud! That is a really terrible picture. I'm sure in some situations there won't be much contrast between the black fenders - It all depends on the lighting.

I thought I had decided on Copperhead, but these Granite picks are really swaying me!!!

I'm still going to be patient and wait to see them in person.
