Just saw this Moab in person. I think the RL looks pretty fantastic on the Moab package! Must be all the black.

That subdued lighting is RL's best friend. It sort of fades out in bright light. Commando (what I have) does the same thing.

That's right. The first RL I saw was in the wild, and I thought "Good grief...". Just saw one on the showroom floor when I took my JKR Dozer in for service, and I thought the RL looked sharp. And the black parts really help. If I had a RL, I'd get black wheels, black out the grill, etc.

I also agree that Jeep should just use the real names for these colors:

Winter Chill = Baby Blue
Rock Lobster = Pink
Dozer = School Bus Yellow
Mango Tango = I'm From Texas
Black = I'm from New Jersey
Dune = Baby Poop Brown
Rugged Brown = Adult Poop Brown
Commando Green = Play-doh Green (after a bit of use)
Flame Red = Marilyn Red
Billet Silver = Recycled Silver
Deep Cherry Red = Red
Bright White = Star Wars White (Jeep didn't want to pay licensing fees)

I recognize it's love-hate color but I do not regret it a single bit. It never looks pink in person, but some photos may make it look that way. I remember taking two identical photos with 2 smartphones and one of them looked slightly off, while the other looked red. Check out the pics below, in the brightest of suns.

At the end of the day, if someone truly regrets it, then sell it. I know I won't.

It all depends on lightning. Have the white top on it now. Going into the body shop in a couple weeks to be painted RL to match. Can't wait!

I respect all Jeepers regardless of what color of Jeep they have and would never make derogatory comments if a color is not my particular taste. Guess what, we don't care what you think! Maybe you could find a thread to respond to where you can actually address the op's question.

It's kinda like being secure in your manhood enough to wear a pink shirt.
I have many pink shirts!

Correction...respect all Jeepers except you. Why are you posting in a thread for Rock Lobster owners? Maybe you should move along, there is a thread for favorite/least favorite colors.

I find in large that those who have RL don't see the pink hue but most everyone else does. Hmmmm

I do believe the OP was asking current RL owners?

I have one and I've gotten a ton of compliments. Granted Crush was my first choice but thinking back I don't think I would have liked it w/ the paint fenders. I did a blacked out theme w/ emblem flat black, black rims etc...

It's very bright but if you don't think you can handle it get white. I had a white one before and I got tired of it.

I definitely don't regret choosing my Rock Lobster Moab Unlimited. I think it stands out from the crowd - which I like for my vehicles. I've gotten lots of compliments as well - everything from "it's a very modern red" to "looks almost orange in the sunlight", but never once anything about "pink" (which I was somewhat worried about after reading these forums). I understand it's not for everyone, but I definitely don't regret my decision. Best of luck!

I certainly don't regret not getting an RL, but I don't mind the color. I tend to love red vehicles and wanted a flame red jeep, but they don't have that colour any more.

So I ordered baby poop because I live on a gravel road and it looks great dirty.

Flame red is back for late 2013 and soon to be 2014.

Black may as well be called "Greater Metropolitan Area." I'm in CT with my black JK and 85% of the JKs around here are also black.

I love black though- I've only owned one non-black vehicle and I spent all my time wishing it was black

OK, I'm willing to change it to "Metrosexual Black" - if that works for you.

Looks amazing with the AEV bumper and black wheels! I'm wondering what looks better on RL, black top or RL-colored top...
