Here's my question...how does Jeep justify not offering some variation of "GREEN" on a Willy's. I can't wrap my head around why they didn't at least offer Eco Green.

I assume you are drawing on a military theme? Willys is simply a brand like Jeep. I know you know but it's worth restating.
If it was the Willys Quad I could see a green. Or some special military lettered Jeep, ala 2004 TJ Willys. This doesn't appear to be military.

That's definitely the Chrysler site, I believe it. I'm so excited for this. Does anyone know when this edition is expected to be released? I know pat said something about spring but haven't heard much since. Also that price is great! 26 to start? I'll take it!

So far, the only word is "early next year."

I am interested in hearing when they will be available to order.

According to this story, the Willys Wheeler Edition will debut at the LA Auto show November 20.

But check out the AEV Filson Edition. And...it's green. Why can't Jeep corporate offer this color?

I thought Jeep did last year. All the people who wanted green, bought one then.

Hi fellow Jeepers:

Does anyone know if Sahara side steps from 2012 JK 2 Door will fit a 2014 JK 2 Door? Thank you in advance.

Okay this for personal knowledge more than anything.....I already have my Polar Edition in Hydro.....but is Hydro going to be used on any other Jeeps this year besides the Polar and Freedom edition? Second question...Did the HT supplier get the "bugs worked out" on the paint issues for the Polars? Heard a rumor that those were "waiting for HTs" because supplier had issues with getting tops that are "properly prepped" before painting, which in turn created the bottle neck...not sure if it was only the Hydro or all "Painted tops"...any truth to this rumor...has anyone received a '14 with a painted top that was complete AFTER the 26th of OCT? That is the date I heard things went on hold....Just asking not trying to start any rumors...attempting to verify.....

I have a Hydro Blue JK Polar ordered with the dual top group and it was completed yesterday and is awaiting final inspection so I know they are making them again. I can also say that I have seen in person 2 Unlimited JK Polars in HB in the last week, one in Texas and one in Louisiana and they looked fine to me. I read a couple of post indicating it was more of a paint supply issue than anything else. Maybe they weren't prepared for the demand on HB. Hope that helps.

Well it does sound as if they are making them again and got paint issue settled...I know I really like ours.....tough to tell the Cosmos from the Hydro, we have both...that only leaves the second half of the question...is Hydro truly gonna be a limited color this year?

One thing you CAN count on is any color, any "Special Edition", "Limited Edition", special rims, seats etc. Can and most likely will be put on another run at any time they think sales numbers will justify it. Just how they conduct business. So I would assume the answer would be yes so I was not disappointed later when it is. Just me.

Well I've been holding out and stirring the pot a bit lol. From everything I'm gathering hydro is going to be available second half. Over in the hydro thread someone from Canada has already ordered a hydro Rubicon and if you look closely at the jeep brochure it states late availability. So still holding out and double finger crossing for hydro x lol!!

I think it has been mentioned by Pat and some of the information sources that Hydro Blue would be available in early 2014 (springtime possibly). I would be a shame for Jeep to not make Hydro available on other models later in the model year. And with the demand for Hydro on the Freedom and Polar that decision may come sooner than later IMHO.

Will do!!

How are you liking your new jeep?

I only got to drive my jeep for a day before I left it at the dealer in Co. It's worse then the original wait.

He called me today to let me know they were starting on my Mopar stage 3 lift and my winch install as well. I'm excited but I think I should have waited to at least see how they ride stock.

Tell me where in NJ those shots were taken? Please!! Or where I can see stuff like that! I can't believe how beautiful. I feel sheltered being from Ca.

In a press release someone posted about the new Willys edition, it said that I would be available in ALL jeep colors, which for me says hydro. The ONLY reason I got a Freedom Edition was to get this color...

Am I sad? A little bit. Did I expect it? Of course I did. Do I wish I would have waited? HELL, NO!!!

Well said StarBrite!!! My Hydro Blue Polar will be arriving in a couple of weeks and I'm glad I ordered back in October. No way I would have waited any longer. I have a gut feeling that this color is going to be a very popular color when it is released for all models.
