Pat,

Do you know cutoff for ordering BFG?

My wife can't decide between the two. Wish we had shot of gecko on a vehicle instead of just paint sample.

From what I know there won't be a cutoff of the BFG. Wranglers will have 2 greens available.

I really wish Jeep would release a live shot of it.

If it looks something similar to the 04 and 05 tj's that had electric lime green then it will. My 04 Rubi is electric lime green.

OP here. Thanks everyone for the information. I want a new Rubi but waiting for Gecko....I just have to see it! If it is lime, I will order immediately. Don't go into local dealers here in Boston anymore because they just try to "sell now" and nobody will help me or follow up with me because they aren't going to get a sale today. Really makes me mad.......don't know where I am going to buy when I finally purchase but I am willing to drive a great distance just because I don't want to buy from anyone around here after the way they have treated me. Too bad Pat isn't closer, I sure would love to buy from a guy that helpful! Maybe it's just me the Boston dealer treat so bad, after all I am probably not your typical buyer....I'm a 55 year old woman....but heck I drive up to the dealership in my wrangler and tell them how wranglers are the only vehicles I have ever owned and even though my friends keep telling me it is time to buy an adult car - I keep saying "naugh"....why not take me seriously!

Another thread noted the Wrangler Ipad App, I downloaded it and the Gecko looks awesome...I saw above that they will start building in Jan. Has anyone been able to order one yet? I was thinking Dozer, but if I can order Gecko soon......(I'm looking @ ordering next weekend, shooting/hoping for a February Delivery)

Sorry to hear you are having such a hard time. I'll PM you if there are any updates to the release of gecko. And any questions just ask, this forum has folks on here that know just about everything that has to do with wranglers.

What's up with Jeep dealers?

I sent out dozens e-mails to Jeep dealers around Southeast US about ordering Gecko Rubi unlimited. No one is interested in ordering it for me. Just one e-mail to Nissan dealer about metallic green XTerra brought up a very reasonable offer. What can I say about - Chrysler doesn't want me as a customer... No wonder Italians running that shop!

I can order one for you when it becomes available and you can pick it up in Sanford Florida.

well sboyes, you only have a year on me. from what i can tell, as stated, like the lime green from 2006. if that doesn't work, remember the dusters and baracudas of the early seventies, same color except a better shine due to the clear coat paint.

I'm not a wild color person, my '12 rubi is white, but if I had the patience to wait it out, I would've seriously considered gecko...something about that color green just gets me.

I'm assuming it's like the color of the Gecko Green VW bug..
Would be cool if it was more like the Rescue, but sorta different obviously

I spoke to dealer in GA today and he told me Gecko was cancelled. What a bummer! That's the only color I wanted, besides may be Blue that is not available anymore. Does anybody know for sure if Gecko cancelled or not?

Seems strange that they would cancel the color when they have a JK painted that color in the 2012 brochure pg 24. Pat can probably confirm though

Gecko is on the books for Jan 17th. That could change and I'll post it if/when it does. I'm guessing the dealer is trying to push what they have in stock or what they can get from another dealer to hit this months quota.

It is amazing how different everyone's taste is.

I've been waiting to see colors in person before I order...but I have no desire to see gecko at all.

Knowing my luck...I'll probably dismiss it...buy BFG...and in a month....see it and love it.

Of course, since I only want saddle leather...I can't say gecko green and saddle are a good mix.

Gecko is essentially the same color as Kawasaki green, very bright and nothing like Rescue Green.

Here it is from the brochure:

Would that green be too blinding on a 4 door? If I have to wait until January 17 for somebody to order one, then wait another 2 months for it to arrive to see the color in real life, then if I like it, order one and wait another 2 months, heck, it'l be summertime.

Gecko ordering timeline

Does anybody know how long does it take for color like Gecko to be built after one placed an order?
Could it be longer wait than normal color? I am patiently waiting for ordering time... I am amused by marketing at Chrysler to create color palette with such poor choice of 4 reds and no bright blues or greens. Certainly one khaki shoul suffice, but ...

WRANGLER Gecko Green (PFM) paint will be orderable in early February.

WRANGLER Winter Chill (PBA) paint for non-Arctic units will be orderable in early March.


It won't take any longer to order the Gecko. Figure 4-6 weeks

Pat,

is it really true that i will be able to order winter chill on a non-arctic? and are you positive on march being the order date?

the dealer i'm working with has reached out to their rep, but was only told that i can't get winter chill in anything besides arctic. if i can get it in rubicon, that'd be my ideal jeep.

thanks in advance for the confirmation.

Pat,

Hate bothering you but will that color be available on 2012 Grand Cherokee? My wife is torn between at GC and JKU.

Man, that Gecko is as "Hot Wheels" as that Dozer is "Tonka".

SO COOL! (not for me) but SO COOL!
