So I am down to the following 3 choices. I love them all but leaning towards the Rubicon models versus the Artic as I can upgrade the rims which I do like on the white Jeeps. Also torn if I go with the white to have black fenders or body color! I feel the crush fever coming on though.
Love your thoughts and I think the photos I have are all from dealers so I hope that it is ok to use!
All three are so different I can see why you're having such a tough time. I wouldn't go with the painted fenders and top of you plan on doing any off roading. So that leaves color vs black and white. Since you put up two pics of a white jeep I'm going to choose the black/white one for you. White = safe which indicates you may possibly get sick of the orange later on.
Red!! Oh wait, that's not an option? Well then based on your selections I would go with white with black fenders. White is a safer color, but it doesn't stand out as much as the crush; just make sure you get a color you don't regret
Pearl green/khaki.....oh...wait....did I say that out loud?
Whatever the color, I still have never quite adapted to the same fender/top color as body. But it's YOUR dime here....
For literally decades, "white Jeep" and "white Austin Healy 3000 MkIV" and "white Porche 356b cabriolet" was prominent in my fantasy life.
The orange/yellow variety Jeeps were interesting but I decided would fatigue my retinas before long.
Living in the forested Outback as I do, my choice is a close camo for the environment.

Crush is a nice color, though its "loud" meaning you can definately see it coming. It is too vibrant of a color for me, but thats my opinion. I voted for the Arctic, I was thinking it was the bluish color though. I personally don't like the painted hardtops, looks too hummerish to me. You could always just get the White/black fenders and upgrade to the Bushwacker fender flares later and get them painted if you wish.

You are wrong – a Healy should be British Racing Green.
Former owner of an Austin Healy 3000 Mk III in British Racing Green with things like a Blue Printed Engine. Like a fool, a woman convinced me to sell it – I should be more responsible.
Also have owned a Ferrari Mondial t Cab in white with red interior.
Not bad for a poor boy who came from the wrong side of the tracks.
A Mondial t was used in “Scent of a Woman” and other movies (different color). I only drove it sometimes with my eyes closed.
Currently in the process of ordering a Crush Rubi Unlimited. Saw a Crush at the dealer across from USAA in San Antonio with painted fenders and a black top. It looked sharp and sold quickly.
Like the painted fenders but not available in a Rubi and probably not good off road.
Either a Crush or White would be great. Fun factor great on either.
The Arctic only makes sense if you like the interior, if the white trims and orange stitching leave your feelings neutral then buy a Rubi. I have painted fenders. Although they look nice, all shopping carts are my enemies. Wife's Wrangler has unpainted fenders, finding a suitable parking spot is a way lesser event for her.
I usually end up going for which one has the features I want. I'll usually have 3 colors that I would consider. This time I wanted in order: Black, Silver, Green. The one I found that had everything I wanted was Black, so that's what I got.
Lighter colors are better for wheeling because they don't show the scrapes. In the future I would get Silver because of this. I'm not a white fan, but would get that over the Orange because it won't show the scratches as much. This is also a reason to not get the painted fenders. They won't look as got if they get scraped up. Of course, if they get thrashed, it's a good excuse to buy flat metal fenders.
