Days like these... (pics attached)

Days like these make me curse my college classes for taking up my whole day, while I could be offroading or going to the beach. I feel so trapped in these parking lots!

BTW this is my Jeep's first time fully naked!
Please don't comment on the stock-ness of my Jeep. I know! Moneys just not easy for a college kid.

The police report won't be entered in for another 2 weeks or so. So its just a waiting game right now.
I mean, the damages are so minuscule I'm in no hurry. Thanks for asking!

Didn't your wheels get chipped or something? Got pics?
Btw, rescue green was the only other color I would have gone with.

Enjoy college while you can! Those are some of the best memories and relative freedom that I can remember and that was 25 years ago... There will be plenty of time to enjoy your great Jeep! (especially if you're in FL)

Good luck with school

Yeah, I'll post some close-ups on the thread about the accident right now. Its really not too bad, but her Toyota was totaled. Serves her right for making an illegal turn because she was texting or something.

See this is why you need a lift. Then when the police come to take pictures that you can share with us here, we can all see your Jeep sitting on top of her toyota.

I'll second that! Rare and interesting colors are very cool!

Check this one out. I call it Kermit took the governator's steroids:

It was for sale recently for $47.9 which wasn't a bad deal considering it had at least $90k in value for mods and only 7k miles (mostly for shows and photo shoots). The biggest issue was the motor that really needed to be what the new Pentastar offers... tempting.

Thanks guys! When I first went shopping I wanted a Sahara Tan, but couldn't afford a 2011 when they gave me such a good price on a 2010.

I'm really glad I ended up with the Rescue Green. Its a color you don't see around.

IMO rescue green may be the greatest color for a jeep.

The Surf-Blue Pearl was a color I didn't want to admit I really liked.... The color the Islander Wranglers came in. Its actually quite refreshing to look at lol.
I really liked Detonator Yellow as well.
I love how Jeep always changes their colors. It sucks if you wanted a color that stopped production, but its awesome because it makes every color unique.

Dude, that is a nice lookin Jeep. And don't fret about the 'stockness'. Part of the fun is doing what you want to your own Jeep when you can. I couldn't afford to really mod mine until I paid it off.

Ok you all have forced me to do this. Here is my color choice chart.

1. Rescue Green
2. Mango Tango (I know it's a gay name but the color is righteous)
3. Detonator Yellow (because who really doesn't love a yellow Jeep?)
4. White (there's just something about a white jeep)
5. Deep water blue (ok in the top #5 so I don't get beat up next trail ride)
6. Tan (this color is amazing especially when paired with black flares and tinted soft top)
7. Red rock pearl (do they still make this?)
8. Black (if done right with a good looking lift and mud, this is good stuff)
9. Flame red (nope not a fan, just picking a color to take the #9 spot)
10. Clear?

^^Dude, did you just disown your own Jeep? I think I hear it crying quietly outside . . . .

But yeah, deep water blue is sweet.

Yep...I didn't include Bright Silver Metallic because everyone knows it's the greatest thing since peanut butter and jelly.

^.....+1 to what he said. I love my silver jeep! Always been partial to black (last 2 trucks where debadged and blacked out), but not on a jeep. To each their own I suppose.
