Any firecracker red owners?

We recently bought a black Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude and love it. Thinking of buying another one for the wife now since I stole her black one.

We are planning on looking at a firecracker red one this week. Any owners here? How do you like it over time? Can you post some photos? Any comparison pics of it and flame red?

I am not sure if I have ever seen this color in person. I saw a red JK once and it REALLY stood out, thinking that was firecracker.

I just picked mine up last weekend. I love it. In certain light it looks orange and others it's fire red. I don't see too many running around here, so it's nice to have something different then everyone else.

Nice colour! Looks like they darkened the Rock Lobster. The Orange soming through in the sunlight looks like the orange that shows on my RL

How do we check the status of our newly ordered jeep? I'm not getting any emails or anything? But then again it has only been 2 weeks since I've officially ordered it,..?

Hi there! We love our 15 Unlimited Red! Led headlights and driving lights. Just put a 2-1/2" Rough Country lift, running stock wheels with 1-1/2" spacers, wrapped in 285/70/17 Kelly Safari TSR's! It did great up on Drummond Island this past weekend? and Jeep the Mac Event!

Yep, got mine a couple years ago and have no regrets. While searching I couldn't find any firecracker red ones in my area. There were a couple of orange ones, but I didn't want to settle... I had my dealer ship mine from the next city over.

I still feel the same about it as I did the day I took her home.

i have Firecracker Red. i would have preferred Flame Red which was more of a fire engine red. the one issue with Firecracker Red, is that in direct sun, at an angle it can look orange'ish but only at certain angles. Flame Red on the contrary, simply looked more bold in the sun.

alas, Flame Red as you know is no more. Jeep dabbled with an odd color called Rock Lobster when they eliminated Flame Red. it flopped, so Firecracker Red was its replacement.

Wow, old thread!!! lol

Firecracker is the best, truest red I've ever seen on a jeep.
And my girl agrees.
It looks amazing in the sun and even when it gets dirty it doesn't show it much.

Yo!

I've had it almost a year now. It's a '15 JK Rubicon.

My 2015 Firecracker X Games Edition

its being traded in any day now... I am having a 2017 Rubicon Recon being built right now, and I decided on Gobi for it.

I loved the red, but didn't want the same color two jeeps in a row.

I love red vehicles, and have had quite a few. Here is my JK last summer (it has different wheels now):

Did you fly DC-10s? I worked at Douglas Aircraft for 10 years on the MD-11 Program.

Oh, here is my firecracker red. Picked it up 3 weeks ago.

my 2nd Jeep, the 2017...is actually on the verge of qualifying for lemon law in Pennsylvania. i've had a bad string of luck with Wranglers honestly. it's a shame...i've wanted a Jeep since the mid 90's so badly. finally was in a financial situation to do it and it's just garbage after garbage Jeep out of Toledo for me. it's like when they see the order "Made Especially for Medic"...they go out of their way to make it especially like crap lol
