Can't decide on a color

I know that it is a very personal decision, but for some reason, I cannot decide on a color combo for our new to be ordered 2012 Unlimited Rubicon. What's the consensus here?

1) Black / Black Hardtop
2) Deep Cherry / Black Hardtop
3) Deep Cherry / Deep Cherry Hardtop
4) Tan / Black Hardtop

All of these will likely have black cloth interiors. With any of these, I want to add additional black/gray wheels and accessories.

Interesting to see different opinions!

I love the tan! I'm so upset I couldn't find one in my price range (i ended up going with a 2010 because it was so much cheaper).

Black is common and shows scratches easily.
Cherry red is ehh. It kind of reminds me of old ladies.

I think the all red would be something different, though I do like tan.... I feel like tan with a black top would look odd. Tan with a tan top?

I like when the jeep has the same color hard top as the main tub. Then you need to decide on tan or black soft top cause both would match with the red.

While ~I~ don't have a vote that counts here, the same color top/samosamo fenders do nothing for me. I like the different colors. And cherry isn't seen very often around here, nor is the 'stone-red' or whatever they call it.

For years I though 'white' was my choice; I'm very pleased that Natural Pearl Green w/khaki top showed up.

Almost went for Mango Tango though.....

I see way too many black jeeps out there and the next most seen color is red. I love my Detonator Yellow, I've only seen 1 other on the road since I bought it last month.

Owned too many black vehicles, hard to keep clean and shows every imperfection/scratch.

I agree with any of those combos except the matching top, looks less jeep and more rover to me...I'm also kind of on the same page as DetonatorX, I like my rescue green for the fact that I've had it since Feb and haven't seen one the same color yet

From what I read on the new 2012 thread, it appears the Tan will only be available for the first month of production, and then dropped, quite disappointing !!!

I also like tan tops, if the black or cherry was chosen, I would go with a tan top.

Good luck with your choice !!!

I have white and never noticed there were as many white as black until I got it. I personally like the tan of the options, but sure the cherry will be sharp. My Arizona pinstriping is only visible on the fenders and hardtop, at least it hides the scratches well. I saw 1 tan jeep on the road, had black top and black rims..... very sharp especially in AZ.
