Gecko color release?

I have been stalking the forums for a long time but decided to go ahead and post up a question. Haven't placed an order yet but does anyone know when Gecko will be opened for ordering and when it will start being produced? Any better pictures out there of what looks like? The fleet PDF is hard to tell since other colors look a little off. Any thoughts on the above?

Looks like everyone is in the dark about this as much as I am.

just looked on 2012 wrangler information thread, it says Gecko Green is a late release but with no specific date. Maybe early 2012?

Thanks, I guess I am just really anxious to know when it will come out so that I can decide to order now with a different color or wait it out.

I may have a TJ, but I did do research on the new wranglers. Found out there is a 2011 Mojave gecko wrangler two door that is currently available. If you look up gecko edition wrangler, you'll find a site with pics of it. On the official jeep site, it's called the Mojave edition. It includes leather seats with the lizard logo. But the site I found on google is a sand tan like color with several orange colored geckos.

Thanks, I saw that but I am actually looking for the color being released on the 2012 JK that is supposed to be some kind of green color.

It states that it may never make it to production and be replaced with Cactus green instead..
(my wife wants a green one)

Ah, I didn't think of it that way. I was thinking it would be released for a little while and then later on be possibly replaced by cactus. I am in the same boat as you, my wife wants a green one but not a fan of that cactus color.

Pat, once again you came through with some good info! Even being tentative, it is more than I knew before. Thanks! Have you heard if it is more like that light green (jeep liberty cactus) or more of a true Gecko looking green? I am hoping for the brighter green.

This is from another post courtesy of Xia Wu in the Wrangler june 2nd thread. I would be good if this turns out to be close to accurate.

We'll see what it looks like when the official paint chips finally come out. I like having loud colors on my vehicles but this one is the wife's so it will be her call.

Wranglers need fun different colors like this to further stand out. Too bad my wife insisted on boring silver which is the same color of half the vehicles on the road.

Turquoise and pink were "cool" colors in the 80's and early 90's.


If you want a bright green Jeep go for it. It's your Jeep and you can do with it whatever you like.
If others don't like it, tough $hit. They can buy thier own damn jeep in whatever color they want.

I went for "Jeep Green". But hey, thats just me and thats just my Jeep. To each thier own.

What year did they offer that color? IMHO, Black, White and 'Jeep Green' should be standard colors every year. I see a Natural Green for this year, but I don't think it looks like that. Way different lighting tho.

Since Orange Crush looks like Header/Toxic Orange in the Dodge line, I wonder if Gecko might look like Green With Envy...

I ordered mine yesterday, Unlimited Sport with half doors (and the connect package -- got hooked on that in my ford).

Still waiting on the confirmation email...

Since the color doesn't officially open up until tomorrow, I expect that is when the order will actually be placed.
