Most Popular 2012 Colors Ordered

I don't want to beat a dead horse but why are 99% of early 2012 orders for Tan and Natural Green ? If these color 2011 jeeps were just sitting in lots all year with no buyers, why did everyone bust their A%SES to get a 2012 in Tan and Green before they were no longer available ?

Ah, a philosopher! That's just the nature of man: he must have that which he can't have. Marketers know that, too!

Hi

I ordered a 2012 for the better engine, and for me a Jeep is green and a military vehicle. I ordered a green one before I read that "natural green" will disapear.

I am waiting for the black forest green, if it look to black I might buy me a green Suzuki Jimny instead and cancel the wrangler order.

As a naturephotographer I want a green 4x4

I am looking for a sample of black forest green, the closest I've seen is a Hyundai with a color by that name - it was really sharp, but Jeep's take on a color by that name could be completely different.

Any actual samples or pics would be appreciated.

Green is my favorite color and the jeep I have now is green but I opted for the Fire engine Red this time.

Man that Dozer is nice.
I was expecting Caterpiller or more school bus yellow/orange but I like that.

I did the re-order cuz my build on the original order apparently can't be changed to incl the 3.73 axel...which at the time was incl with Auto/Tow...but not now...blah blah.. This is a backup order and I'm liking it more than the original Tan ordered...but I'll take either if the gears are right.

I was looking the other day at my Kubota tractor and thought...what a perfect color for a Jeep...not that is Orange Pretty close, actually.

I ordered 2012 Rubi JKU in Natural Green Pearl. I feel it's a more classic look (personal preference), and would blend nicely with the tan leather, and any other add-ons I'm likely to include in the future.

I ordered my 2012 JKU Sahara in Cosmos Blue. Many people that I have talked to do not like this color but I absolutely love it. I test drove a 2011 in Detonator Yellow because I always wanted either a bright green or yellow jeep. Since there isn't a bright bright green offered I opted for the yellow. Unfortunately even detonator was not a bright enough color for me. So I went with the smurf-like cosmos blue. I am a girl and I love bright colors. Seems like a perfect fit. Though I do like the look of Dozer, now that I have seen it!

We ordered silver because we aren't keeping this Jeep forever and wanted something that would be easier to sell or trade on a new one in 5 years. We don't want the hastle of having to find someone who wants one of the niche colors over someone who is willing to settle for one at a reduced cost if they aren't popular when we're ready for a new one.

Silver is one of the most sought after colors in America. Just not in the wrangler world.
Who purchases used wranglers? What niche? Under 30 crowd.
What colors do they usually choose? silver? nope

If you were selling a Mercedes ,you would be right on.(Silver is their color).
But the youth loves the "niche" colors like dozer,Cosmos... And they will 5 years from now.The more it sticks out, the more they like it.

Just trade it in in 5 years.

We just traded a TJ on a 2012 Rubicon Unlimited. Black was the color of both. Our daughter just traded a blue GC on a natural Green Pearl 2012 Sahara. The dark green color does look good, especially with a black hardtop and it's not too dark so that it looks like black at night.

I think that the reason that the 2011s sat while the 2012 orders were placed was because most buyers knew about the minimal power of the 3.8 V6 and wanted to wait for the Pentastar and 5 speed automatic. I know we did.

My next wrangler will be either white or silver. So far I have had red...then patriot blue...and my current TJ is that light/steel blue. I guess I am fading away.

Can't wait to see Crush. Dozer is a bit too loud when I looked at a photo of a new jeep in that color. Would likely be better with a black top though.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but that's not Dozer, that's Crush. The color guide was posted on page 14 of the stickied thread.

I actually have not reordered yet. That pic was on this thread somewhere and labeled as Dozer. I dunno of my own knowledge. All I've seen of Dozer was on the allpar.com page. This one. I'm a bit color blind to Red/Green so I might not be seeing what you are on these. Is there a pic of Dozer someplace besides the color chart ? This was on the Allpar page. If the Real Dozer is like this I think it would be fine. I've looked at some older jeeps from the 2004-06 era which were 'Toxic Orange'....a bit darker...and liked them a lot.

Yeah, that pic has been floating around for a while, hopefully nobody ordered based on it. I'm trying to decide between Dozer and Crush right now and have no idea which one I like better.

I will not order until I see better representations of both. They are so close on the color chart and I don't trust that on a computer screen...or even if I print it out.

Edit: I just went to p14 and looked at that color chart, which I've seen before, and I still say the one I said was Dozer is Dozer. It's lighter/brighter than Crush on the chart. This, below, is Crush aka Header, from the color chart. Bottom line: None of us really know

Dozer is clearly yellower than crush. The picture of the Jeep above and the paint sample shown are both Crush.

Remember though, you can't know how it's going to look from seeing it online. That's what's frustrating me, I'd like to see one before I order but don't want to wait.

We do agree there, and remember I'm a bit color blind....I'd like to KNOW cuz I don't wanna wait either ..

The paint sample I showed was Crush/Header but it, to me, looks less yellow than the actual jeep pic I posted (not the allpar pic) which was posted some time ago and said to be Dozer...and the confusion continues. I do like the pic from the Allpar page and it's saying Dozer.
