Gecko

Gecko looks like a good color that will look sweet with 35's and blacked out wheels.

I agree 100% I told Treyngler earlier today that my next one might just have to be a Gecko..... Gotta start saving up now, maybe I can afford one in the next 10 years...

If I didn't need a vehicle now I definitely would have waited for gecko to come out. It just goes so well with all the black accents/interior.

Thanks. I'm a fan of all Wranglers but is this not "lime green"? It's cool, but it's sort of lime, yes?

Ahh that is because I am mistaken! It must be lime green or something. It's lighter than my natural green but darker than the pics of gecko I've seen.

My apologies. :o

Skittles colors are great for Wranglers, IMO.... Not everyone's cup o' tea, and I understand that, but I would drive one all day long and be very happy about it Personally, if I never saw another silver vehicle it would be fine with me... I never understood the idea of pavement colored vehicles.... Especially at dusk or dawn in the rain...... Camo is good in the woods if you want to hide from varmints, not so good on the road when you don't want some asshat running you down....

Strictly my opinion, and I understand why so many like their neutral colors, I just am glad I have the ability not to choose one.

I don't know, it kind of looks like the same color as the Geico gecko.

See and there's the other side of the coin. Wranglers are one of the few vehicles that can pull these colors off--a Gecko Camry, anyone? I thought not. I'm still a bigger fan of the deep blue, black, dark red (red rock crystal), dark green (forest) type of colors, but that's JMO. I get the "skittles" choices too.

Easily done aftermarket. Just get the jeep in Gecko and take it from there.

YUP, our Majave is getting a facelift sometime soon, a friend of mine has a graffics shop and we are going neon green. It should look great!

I so wanted the Gecko but my dealer and Pat F both told me it wouldn't be released for production until Jan 19th. I don't have that kind of patience. So..I went with the more "ahem" mature Pearl Deep Cherry. Now I have to draft my moose head silhouette to paint on the hood once I get the bugger. And <sigh> I found the coolest 6' long lizard decal to go on both sides if I had gotten it.. Hopes, dreams...broken concrete... <sniff>

The gecko on the 2012 brochure is a best guess photoshop. It originally appeared back in late 2006 in the 2007 JK brochure as a detonator yellow. Look at the rear facing photo, they photoshopped in the 2012 woofer panel but forgot the check strap.

Most images in those things are recycled and airbrushed photos, done by the marketing dept.

My 04 Rubicon is electric lime green and I call it skittles.A lot of people ask me if its a factory color. They like it and then say you dont see many of those.

I agree that the Wranglers look good in the bright colors. I see other vehicles in the bright colors and think they look awful, but the bright colors just work on the Wranglers. I am glad it isn't everyone's cup of tea because I don't want a lot of other Crush Jeeps on the road near me!!

I think Gecko is going to look good. If I didn't like orange so much, I would go for Gecko.
