Hydro Blue?

I showed a few of my friends the Hydro Blue color and all of them seem to think its a girly color. Of course, my wife like its too. It certainly stands out in a crowd that's for sure. I know people on this forum love it. Does anyone else get these comments?

I heard people saying that on this forum too. However, last weekend I took my Hydro Blue Willys to a small gathering, and everyone really liked it! And these are some long time Jeep owners too, not just a bunch of mall crawlers. One friend has a 2012 JKU MW3 with all the bells and whistles and cool mods, in black, and he REALLY liked the color.

Besides, it seems like everyone has Granite or Anvil, or any of the other colors available. Not a lot of people go for the Hydro. In fact, I had to go to Texas from Missouri before I saw another Blue Jeep!

I say GO FOR IT!!

I like your thinking I really wanted the granite but I want a 2015 and it doesn't look like its coming back, except a rumor that it could be for a limited run. I don't really care for the anvil. Too plain looking. I see a lot of black, white, and silver as well so those are out. I don't want orange, yellow, brown either. Tank is interesting but I was hoping for a darker green. I guess I am between the hydro blue or the firecracker red. I preferred the Flame red on that though. can't win. I think the hydro would look awesome with black fenders and a black top though.

Btw, how is the hydro blue with regards to scratches, etc. Does it show swirl marks? Being that its metallic I bet it does a good job of hiding them

I concur with you foolproof. Phatmac just add a few masculine mods and it'll look Badass. My thought is that its just a fun color and definitely stands out from the usual solid-safe choices(Not that there's anything wrong with those!). It's just that I've always had a black,gray or white vehicle my whole life. Time for a change...
I ordered my Hydro today and cant wait for it to arrive.

Right after I signed the paperwork on my deep water blue jk, the sales manager said he had thought about buying it for his mom. I immediately started thinking I had just bought a girlie jeep. My wife and both daughters love the color too, which in that moment was not helping. Anyway, a set of black wheels and big rubber solved any of those issues. Now I get tons of compliments on it bc like has been said, there aren't that many blue jk's out there. It stands out. I say go for it.

Blue is my favorite by far. I went in to buy an orange jeep, but when I saw the blue one in person...I was sold!

But then again, I could not possibly care less about other people's opinions when I do things (like buy a jeep).

I don't think I'm hydo blue, but blue can be very masculine or very feminine. I thought my Jeep looked very girly, but the guy had it all chromed out, lol.

You guys all make valid points. I just asked someone else who works for Honda. He says in the car business, blue is known for "no sale blue" He's not helping

The other color I am looking at is firecracker red and that looks too bright compared to the flame red.

When I first started building Jk's on jeep.com a month ago. It was all granite. I didn't want anything else

Then, the site popped up 1 time and had hydro blue showing. I knew then I was going blue. Bye bye granite.

Currently own an '08 jku in jeep green. I say go for it

Ha. It was all Granite for me too. I have been pretty bummed since they dropped it. I have been into the blue since I first saw the freedom edition. My wife is totally into it. I kind of paused after that...

Honestly its not feminine, if it makes you smile buy it. If people mock you for it, they're probably not worth your time. Lifes too short to play it safe. Get what trips your trigger and have no regrets. I went from copperhead to white and now I'm waiting on the 15 Hydro in sport so ill have black fenders which make the Jeep look a little more "masculine" maybe that's all you need black top, black fenders. Great color that's toned down with the black. For me regardless of color I just dont care for the top AND fenders being all the same color. But thats why you have many choices for different tastes. Who knows maybe in a year Ill get bored of the fenders and trade someone for colored ones. Anyway that's my 2 cents worth. Good luck.

I think it could look awesome since I am getting a rubicon. Black top, black fenders, darker wheels. Then eventually, lift n tires

It makes me happy that people are having reservations about this color. The fewer people that have it, the more awesome it becomes!!

Plus, let's be honest... A Jeep is just about the most ridiculous vehicle available. It is a giant toy that we are allowed to play with, AND drive on the road. Why not get the color you like?

There is a Hydro Blue JKU running around my neighborhood and I like it a lot. Prior to my current Flame Red Rubicon I owned a dark blue Rubicon. I really don't believe there is a bad Jeep color. I was not real keen on Dune for a while but now I enjoy seeing that one as well. Keep em coming, I am not bored or disgruntled yet.

I have a 2014 JKU Hydro Blue, Freedom Edition. Not the color I wanted, but had most of the features I did want at the time.

When I first saw it, especially with the military star sticker on it, was that seemed like something they'd drive in the Air Force. Being ex-Army, it made me hesitate.

Women do seem to like the color, I've gotten several compliments on it, all from women. Being single, I count that as a potentially positive thing.

Besides, it can always be repainted someday.

How does the color hold up to scratches and swirl marks? Does it hide them well with it being a metallic style?

So far as I know, I haven't scratched it yet in any way. It's still pretty new, only got it May 22.

I get the sense, though, that it'd be hard to make out any minor scratches. Then, in my case, they'd all be covered up by dust and bug guts, this thing's better than a bug zapper at finding the local insect life.

I personally think hydro blue is the best color of 2014 bar none. But I could be biased.

Not a girly color at all in my opinion. I think it looks awesome and photo's don't really do it justice.

I guess I'm old school but when I was growing up blue was not considered a girls color. He'll when I was shopping for my jeep I was asked why I wanted to buy a girlie vehicle, because around here probably more than half the owners are woman. Perhaps our jeeps have become to plush and comfortable. I'm not really into stereotypes though so who gives a F

I'd figured yours would be darker than that. You've been waiting. Long time for your jeep to show up
