Are you asking us to vote? If yes, I vote for Hydro. If not...

I see very few Hydro's in our area and it definitely pops out. A guy I spotted driving in Rochester had a Willys with the doors and top off that looked really good. Haven't seen Tank yet in person but I think it'll look great with black accents of the Willys. I don't think you can go wrong with either color, or any color for that matter. I had the hardest time deciding between just black and anvil!

I've stopped counting the number of people that compliment me on my Hydro.

Well, we might wave at each other once I get the jeep, since I live in Rochester Hills!

I have always loved the blue, but I'm thinking going military theme (like beast master's), since I will have a set of mopar half doors to swap out in summer, regardless of the color I choose.
I think a tank willys with half doors will look awesome!

Problem is, the wife prefers the blue....

I was kind of down on Tank when I saw pictures start popping up in the forums. I saw it I'm person this past weekend and it really looked fantastic. I would suggest swing the colors in person before making any decision.

I love the hydro blue and went with that for my 2015 Hard Rock on order, but I really like Tank for the WW.

I would go Tank on a WW. The blue metallic color in my eyes fits better on some of the other trim packages. The Willys says simple options, flat colors and half doors to me. YMMV

All that being said, Anvil is obviously the best color for any jeep.

thanks everyone!
Yes, I figure I should see the tank in person before I make my choice, I have already seen hydro in person and I love it!

I also figured I would get a lot more votes for hydro from all the current owners!

Hydro, but I'm slightly biased.

I love blue in general, always been wanting a hydro willys, but the thought of a tank willys seems very appealing, especially since I will have a set of OEM half doors (in addition to the factory full doors).

Personally, I'm waiting to see Tank in person... so far from what I have seen from pics I like what I see... the Willys with the blacked out grill, wheels and with half doors on Tank would look super sweet... the Hydro looks nice, but flashier... a blacked out Tank Willys goes back to Jeeps roots and would look all business, no flash... personal preference... if I don't go Tank, I'll go Anvil... plan on going for an Unlimited Hard Rock and will mod to black grill and wheels... good luck with your decision, either way will be sweet...

If I were you I would have such a hard time with this choice, I had a grabber blue mustang which is basically the same color and absolutely loved it, but even though I have not seen tank in person yet the pictures are awesome especially with a ww. I think I'm gonna have to lean more to tank something about it just says jeep

That's tough. I have a Hydro Altitude edition and it gets a lot of compliments. That being said, I really like the new Tank color. I feel like Hyrdo is a bit more of a flashy kind of cool while Tank is a military style of cool.
