Talking My New Orange Crush Sport

I picked up my new orange crush Sport yesterday. All I can say is really nice interior, and feels way more solid that my 09 JKU Sahara:

Thanks. Normally i don't like black wheels, but I think with this color and all the black that is already on it, it would look good. But I think I'll wait a bit to make that change.

I can imagine, so far they've been positive, but I know a lot won't like it.

I like black, but if it isn't black I like to go for a bold color. It reminds me of the Hemi Orange on the Challenger.

I went Crush as well, although the color reminded me of the Carousel Red on a '69 GTO Judge.

Crush is the same as Header Orange, I believe.

Wrangler are one of the few vehicles that can successfully pull off a color like that. That color screams "fun" and you will find other motorists staring so easy on the nose picking. Ditto on black wheels and start engineering a garage hardtop hoist.
Enjoy

I agree, they are supposed to be a fun vehicle so they should have a fun color.

I had a JKU and built a rack on my garage wall to slide it off on. This should be easier as the 2-door hardtop is alot smaller/lighter. I didn't get a soft top with this one though.

Thanks.

I have a question: Do these now come from the factory with wheel locks (lugnut)? My 09 didn't. This has locks but I can't locate the key anywhere.

I'm not sure..I never looked. It's most likely still at the dealer.

It IS Header Orange on the Challenger. I'm just wondering if Gecko is the same green as on the Challenger.

Totally why I got white. From what I can tell though, it's the eating that really freaks out the other drivers.

In all seriousness that is a sweet color, enjoy.

Hmm maybe it is the same color then. Next time I see one I'll have to compare.

I picked up my Wrangler Sport in the Crush color last week. I love it, but the only problem I have with it is I can't get my wife out of it!!! Can't wait for the warmer weather.

Well, you said Hemi Orange; we're saying Header Orange. They are two different colors. Header Orange and Crush are two names for the same color.

Current Challengers are available in Header Orange. Hemi Orange ended in 2010, I think.
