hydro blue

i saw this on a JKU Freedom when i was shoping for my rubi and did not like it and thought it was "chick color". as i keep looking for me a JK that i really like i have been looking at the willy's and came across the blue in a JK willy's and im really diggin the color suddenly. the pix from the dealer are on a overcast day so it looks little darker. i think all the black really helps tone it down over all. but over all im really thinking of going for it. other choices are black or granite. decided against the amp'd and dont like it as well i thought.

does anybody have some pix of JK in hydro? i did a search and didnt find anything. i have saw a cpl JKU's.

am i crazy for thinking about it and is it really a chick color?

if i get it i will be swapping the wheels with Rubi immediately

I guess it was just the freedom that threw me off, those are sweet looking jeeps. Liking the half doors. I found a red willy's w/ halfs and loved it but i dont think i would like them in the winter so i'll stick to full doors.
Harley have any pix of it?
I would like to see dif models as well.

The blue is the only color I really like this year. I am a bit bummed because apparently I can no longer order a Willys in the blue (3 dealers said this) and the only ones that could be shipped are a automatic ... blech!

No reason for color insecurities.. I come from a sports car background and I don't see this in that arena...

Show your personality off, says me.!..... I love Jeeps in wild colors.. really works well, especially when contrasted against wheels and other mods.

FWIW...my wife has this thing about the color BLUE...although in our house it is Blu and Blu 2....a '12 JK Sport in Cosmos and a '14 JKU Polar Hydro..honestly depending on the light they look very close to the same.

I do think having the top the same color helps the Polar though....

the more pix you guys/girls are posting makes me like it even more. i too like the jeeps in wild colors, but 2014 really failed at offering them IMO, everything was a darker duller line up. the color matched top and flares are little too much for me personally, i like hte black to break it up.

I have a ton of pictures in my build thread. I have a Freedom Edition, but I'm like you, and thought it needed the black. I swapped the color matched fenders for stock black flares. You can see the rest of my mods in my sig.

I think hydro is awesome, but I might be a little biased. Mike said if hydro would have been available when he bought his jeep, he would have gotten it instead of billet.

Thank you, sir! I appreciate that!

It's an ongoing labor of love... and mod money!

I think some black, or at the very least some other contrasting color, looks best on a Jeep.

I saw an all-Dune 2 door the other day, a Sahara. Color matched fenders, Hard top, the works. It was way too much for me, and I generally like Dune.

Agreed. Saharas just aren't my cup of tea. But then you know what people say about opinions.

Both wife and I love the color. If we can get a Rubi in it for 2015 we might trade in our 2013 Billet. We loved Cosmos but could not get it 2013. The fact that Hydro is metallic makes it even better!

I currently have a black jkur but had an 03' sport in "intense blue pearl" that looked to be the same color. I was talked in to that color and really didn't care for it at first. I grew to love the color especially after putting a lift on and giving it a more aggressive look. I received LOT'S of compliments over that jeep. I regret not going a similar color with my current one. Compared to black blue didn't show dirt to bad either.
