If it looks like the picture in the 2012 brochure, it should be awesome. But I don't know how accurate the picture will be. I'm waiting to see it first hand before I order.

I agree. Photos of the more unique colors are tough to capture. Like dozer aka velveeta cheese.

I think Gecko will be a really good color. Not sure that any of the dealerships around me will order one, though. Personally, I think the bright colors look great on the Wrangler!

Go ahead and order - lots of us ordered Crush before seeing it!! Not having seen one just adds to the excitement!!

It's different. I think if you purchase one, it should be a keeper. Resale might be a little hard. Not to many people like a bright green. But I also though this on the crush color. The dealers around me can't keep them on the lots. They sell as soon as they come in.

Dozer is as adventurous as I can go.

I can't wait to see the Gecko though.

SOON™

Still debating on ordering a Gecko or picking up an Arctic off the lot.

Gecko means I would have two bright green Wranglers around.

Yep, definitely going Gecko. Remembered how happy it made me.

My current plan is to load up a Sport S similar to a Sahara, but I will be saving a bunch of money for items like dual tops. A Sahara with the extra options I want is easily $31,000. A Sport S with options that make it similar to a Sahara in features is around $28,000. However, I would not get the painted flares, 18" rims, or a few other little things I would end up breaking.

I did consider a Rubicon, but my LJ is already an off road beast.

allocation question

I went to a local dealership who said that they couldn't order it until 2/10 because that was when allocation was open. Do different dealerships have different allocation dates?

Any idea if the date to order Gecko will be any different for Canada? I do qualify for the friends and family discount so that will save me some money on my Jeep.

As Pat said, I will be in the dealership on 2012-02-07 ordering! I am already technically starting my wait, for Tuesday!

Currently going to spring for an Unlimited Sahara with painted hard top, automatic, connectivity, limited slip differential, and remote start. Full Gecko all over!

I have a hefty down payment so far. Hopefully for some mystery reason I do not get denied for credit. That would make me very sad.

ordered

I have a VON too My concern is that I had the option to order Katzkin black leather, heated seats on the JKU Sport S, but according to the brochure, this is only supposed to be available on Sahara and Rubicon models. I want solid leather, not leather trimmed cloth. Does anyone know anything about this? Congrats to everyone waiting for this day....it has FINALLY arrived!

Four to eight weeks, but I am assuming it will take the full eight weeks.

Jeep's Build My Own configurator on their site allows it to be selected on the Sport S, but requires the 7-Speaker Infinity sound system to be added. The package seems to also include 115-volt outlet and heated seats. Normally Sahara and Rubicon features, but it seems to be a back door way of getting them on a Sport S.

I did not end up with an Unlimited. I told him to order the first things that came out of my mouth, my passion for what I want! Wrangler Sahara with painted hard top, connectivity, limited slip differential, and automatic transmission. $30,142, exactly 1% under invoice, no fees!(Damn taxes though...) The Unlimited put the cost too far above my budget.

Thanks (sigh of relief). I was worried that it would delay production or, even worse, that I would have paid a lot of money for something that I didn't want. I was ready to have aftermarket leather added until the SA saw it as an order able option. I can't wait for people to start posting actual pics. Now on to my next worry/google search.... Says I am a priority 99.... Doesn't sound like I will get it anytime soon. I have learned SO much in this process. When I walked in and told the salesman what I wanted, he said I was using words that his manager used in the sales meetings.

Hahaha, me too! I confused the salesman a couple times on a few things. I am going to call them on Monday to make sure they have my financing correct.

There should be two priorities. Scheduling Priority of 1-Sold Order and Build Priority. The scheduling priority of 1-Sold Order puts it ahead of the dealer's normal orders for on the lot stock. The build priority generally affects dealer stock orders only. So if the dealer orders ten vehicles they are built in order of the priority they put on them. So unless you are ordering ten Geckos! :P I wonder how it affects multiple orders from the same dealership for customer orders. Either way they put a build priority 01 on mine.

Congratulations on your new Jeep. It sounds awesome. I will be ordering mine in the next week or two. Unfortunately work is keeping me busy and I have to finish renovating a bedroom this weekend. Next weekend I am heading to the Jeep dealer of nothing else comes up. Curious to see how long it takes for yours to come in.
