Angry Am I a Detonator Yellow Misfit?

I purchased my 2011 2dr Sahara in Detonator Yellow, the first and what
appears to be the only year a painted fender Sahara was ever offer in this colour. I've seen Detonator 2dr (unpainted fenders) Rubi's and Sports (X's), but in all my travels (and I'm a well travelled), I've never seen an another single 2d Detonator Sahara. Am I a Detonator yellow misfit?
Anybody got one too?

I think it's very unique as I've never seen one. Prefer the black fenders though! Kind of like a hornet or something. =) Do you have the body color top as well?

I've never seen one. Around here, Saharas are few and far between - the most popular color for them is [USPS] white for some reason.

Don't know what year. Or trim package. But this was on a Jeep jamboree with me. Yellow color matched fenders and hard top. Its the TNT customs JKU.

Have always loved a yellow jeep. Seriously would consider it a color choice for our next one but I'll have to wait and see what the shade is if/when.

I'll do yellow, only if it's abnoxious as possible. I went in to the dealer looking for orange or yellow......they had mango tango on the lot. The rest is history.

This was a very short thread, and there was only one Sahara with painted fenders in it. They were in Canada.

That's kinda what I did I had MT as my #1 then DT yellow as #2 I went with the MT Cause I thought it was just a bit more obnoxious.

Unlimiteds, yes I've seen a number of them. Dealership I purchased my 2dr had two on the lot. Their gone now so someone had to have purchased them, but my was and is the only 2dr I've ever seen. Have never seen a 2dr with a Detonator painted hard top. In 2012, the Wranglers got the new motor, but Detonator yellow was replaced by Dozer yellow.

Thanks for the pics- my Detonator Yellow JKU project is just starting, and the main appearance mod will be body colored Sahara fender flares- just scored a set on Craigslist.

Maybe most owners keep em on the street... to shuttle kids around? Only a small minority are on these forums.
