Anybody actually know how rare Geck Green is?

I spent a whole week and a half on vacation in Raleigh NC. (Without my Jeep of course!) I drove all over the state going to Charlotte, Wrightsville beach and up the outter banks. During my vacation I saw hundreds of Wranglers but only 2 gecko green ones. 1 unlimited and 1 2 door still on a dealer lot. Before this trip I have never seen another 2 door Gecko. I love my 2 door gecko and because I have only seen 1 other 2 door I love it more.

Does anyone have an exact number of how many Gecko wranglers were built in 2012-2013? More specifically 2 door vs 4 door?

I'm contemplating emailing Jeep if no one has an answer...

I would be interested in the response if you want to email Jeep about it.

I also have a 2-door Gecko, and there really aren't many of them around here.

While at the Bantam festival I counted 5 Geckos out of thousands of Jeeps.
In my local town there are 4 others. 2 JKU and 3 JK counting mine that I know of.

How many True Blue?

I was wondering about the True Blue Production numbers. It was only late 12 and early 13.

But as far as rare...I have a 2010 Plum Crazy Purple SRT8 Challenger. It was 1 out of 408 w/auto (total was 939 SRT8 PCP).

It ain't rare they came out with Plum Crazy Purple again in 2013.

But it's still fun to think our jeep might be rare.

I wasn't going to comment until bcsnave posted, but you have a 1 of 408 purple challengers, and that's pretty rare for a car built these days, they usually over build so many models its hard to get a future car that will be collectable. I have a 65 olds 442 convertible, 400 six pack, 4 speed with air, 1 of 73 built, and 1 of 12 known left to exist. Sorry, don't mean to thread jack, but I like to talk about my Olds as much as my Jeep.

I see quite a few of the Gecko greens up here....same for Crush. The only colors I don't see fairly often are Dune and Dozer.

I would say the rarest color that I have not seen too many for 2013 would be the Rugged Brown Pearl Coat followed by the Dune Clear Coat.

I have been searching for a gecko jku it is basically impossible to find. Found 2 in jersey very mod'ed and over priced. So sad over 2014 colors. There are a lot of geckos on Long Island. But I would still love my own

I think they are fairly common. Definetely not something rare. I'll bet that there were fewer winter chills than geckos or crush. You want something "rare", try rock lobster... they are still pink in the middle!

I've only seen one recently, a 4 door rubicon. My local dealer used to have 3 or 4 of them on the lot but they are gone now. I would have picked gecko over commando green if I could have found a 2 door sport when I was ready to buy.

I see quite a few around here, I see less in rock lobster, and those limited edition colors like winter chill. I would have bought a JKU in winter chill, i just didn't like everything else like the dash.

4 JK's but 0 JKU's on the lots within 200 miles currently. Although I know there are some on the lots that aren't listed.

No formal count, but like Republican Jeep said, I see way more Gecko than Rugged Brown (I've seen 1) and Dune (a couple). Gecko doesn't seem any rarer than Crush or other fringe colors to me.

I just traded in my 2012 geko two door for a rugged brown 2013 four door. Love the brown and haven't seen another.

When I bought mine there were only 3 in the state. My local dealer had 12 black ones for the plain jane crowd.Gecko is a cool color for a bad ass Jeep. Sorry Black is just another Jeep.

Even those aren't rare up here....most of them are still sitting on the dealer lot though. Doesn't seem to be a very loved color so far around here.

I am on vacation in Corpus Christi. I seen one the other day on North Padre Island. No others on the six hour drive here or the week I have been here. I live in the DFW area and see a couple from time to time. Most are 2 door JK's. I have seen quite s few the last time I went to Odessa. I would like to know the production numbers as well. I just know I cannot miss it in the Walmart parking lot!!!!!! I also got this color because I did not want to be like everyone else with a black, white, silver, or red one.

I'm curious about this too for the True Blue. We just got ours 2 weeks ago. According to the searches I did, there were 8 available in the state of FL and we drove 140 miles to get ours.
