At this point I am sticking with Copperhead and gonna build my own X package of sorts. But that could all change when the configurator on the Jeep site is finally fully functional. I could switch to Flame Red and take the path of least resistance.

Granite is going to look awesome. Imagine that with four doors (if youre into that kind of thing) with a lift and black wheels. It's going to look really good. I hated the pics I first saw of Commando Green but went and saw one in person and loved it.

Good luck to all who have been waiting so long to order!

Ok, so I hate to be negative Nancy here but Granite Crystal looks exactly like Granite Crystal on the GC. It wasn't a mystery what the color would look like considering thousands of other vehicles have been built in this color.

I like the way it looks and in person it has a good depth to it, but I really don't understand the hysteria over an already established Jeep color.

A color can look totally different on two different types of vehicles. Just because it's great on one type doesn't mean that it's a winner on all types.

I suppose it's a matter of perspective.

When I was on the dealer lot today standing face to face with a Granite Crystal GC I thought, hey it's a nice color but it's still pretty much metallic gray.

When I saw the picture of the JKR in the photo's above I thought, hey that's exactly the same color I just saw a few hours ago. It looks nice and matches the wheels.

Again, I'm sorry to be so blase about this, but it looks pretty common.

Not really crazy about any of this years colors, I find them all fairly boring, but I decided to go ahead and get a new Rubi X

Granite is effing awesome in my eyes = all that matters to me.
Don't get me wrong.. I don't hate it, I'm just glad I chose Billet, as for some reason I did think it would have a bit more contrast with the flares.

Billet and Granite were my top two choices.. Granite is just a bit too dark for my tastes.

NEW 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK

I LOVE IT ! The Power is awesome, I picked the FLAME RED 17" Aluminum wheels, but there coming off soon, anyone need new wheels and tires ?? I did own a 2007 JK, I liked it except the lack of power, the new 3,8 has almost 100 more HP. SOOoo many improvements, and the price did not go up that much, compared to the past years. The stereo is very nice, it comes equipped with U-Connect, This Jeep takes over my I-PHone, It's a pleasure to drive, my 07 was a chore to drive. I want to upgrade my Wheels and tires, and put a KICKER SOUNDGATE INSTALLED. Is a subwoofer and a awesome power Amp. You keep the existing speakers, it make Jeeps sound system, Sound Better, Anyone have this system ? I would like to here from you. If you have any questions about the new JK, please ask.

Thanks

Thanks for everything AA, great info and gave me a good laugh too. If Pat's getting a case of scotch, then I vote AA ought to get a keg of beer for his contributions.
