I don't regret it at all! In fact, I just had more of mine painted to match! Just picked up my now matching hard top! Love it!!

With all of the optional colors available, why would anybody pick Rock Lobster, it's awful, YUK..............
Females may like it, but to see a man driving one would be humorous!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now with all that being sad, what is the first thing that you will see when walking out to your ride every day, why of coarse, THE COLOR...............so if you like it and it makes you feel good when driving it, then go for it................Our comments really should not persuade you one way or another!!!!!!!!!!

I bought RL because I couldn't find a Dozer or Crush. My wife loved it but I was worried about the pink factor. It's two months later and I love it! It really stands out on the trails next to all the other jeeps. In the city it shines bright and everyone notices it. I have never really noticed it looking pink.

About the pinkish hue, if you look at pics of the Flame Red wranglers, you will see the same effect when under the sun. Both are red, it's just that RL is brighter. Another thing to note is when it comes to rare & bright colors like RL and Gecko, cameras can often get these colors wrong (especially phone cams).

Some pics of my car in different conditions (1st one is off, should be darker, 2nd one is spot on):

It's one of the colors that looks very sharp blacked out. Also, if a person is into rare colors, that would be a consideration. I've seen one in Northern Utah....and it looks good.

I do agree that with some mods and blacked out wheels, it's going to look great when finished..


On a side note, while having some beers with friends.. We were talking about my RL color.. Friend replied that's not RL,, looks more like Burt Reynolds Red...

Lol..

Love my Rock Lobster! I wanted Crush as well, but waited too long. Gecko was another option - but I couldn't do it.

I LOVE mine, so many people have said "what color is it". Sometimes it is kinda orange, some times red. Everyone (so far) loves it!

Had a guy in a BMW X5M ask me all about my JKU, he was very impressed with the colour.

I love RL unless it doesn't look like a lobster - more like lipstick.

It's the perfect color to find your car between all the blackish, silverish at the parking lot on first view. The girls like it too and the maskuline approach appears when (and how) you leave the car. Depends on you...

Each his own, if u like it, cool. I own scratch defying, boring silver. Next to a pink color, sure it looks red, but.... I saw one today solo on the freeway, definately picked up the pink hues, in it. Looks like a lipstick color, IMHO.

Pink, Red, Orange. I couldn't careless. I love the color and I'm secure in who I am and comfortable with it.

To each their own!

Do yall think 2013 Rock Lobsters still on dealer lots are worth any less now?

There is one I've had my eye on at the dealer down the street for the past few months. I think no one's bought it because the fenders and hard top are also RL. It's a little too much RL. But I figure swapping out or plastidipping the fenders would take care of the issue.

I was at a car show over the weekend and saw this Rolls Royce convertible. They offered a color very similar to RL back in the 80's. The camera had trouble capturing the exact shade and the light played tricks on it in the same way.

I bought mine 2 weeks ago and got over $6000 off the MSRP. I agree about that one having too much red, mine has the black top.

Got mine 8 days ago and couldn't be happier, both with the JKUR and the color. And chicks dig it! My daughter says it reminds her of a Glacier Park bus.

It's red orange, and anybody who thinks it's pink is colorblind or (more likely) trolling.

Pink maybe not...but salmon is definite.
