New 2013 Owner!!

This week I purchased a 2013 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited and I love it. It is Flame Red which apparently is a late addition to the 2013 paint line. I owned a 2006 Wrangler Unlimited when I was stationed in Guam...the 2013 has so many improvements from my old one. I am looking forward to getting out on some trails and making some upgrades to it. Feels good to be a Jeep owner again!

That looks more like Rock Lobster to me. Anyone else!?

That's what everybody says online. But when a Rock Lobster and a Flame Red are side by side, they don't look alike at all.

Wow, must be camera saturation. Looks great. I like both colors.

Thank you. The pics were just from my iPhone which may be presenting a different shade of the red.

We have had a few Flame Red's and like most other colors, shadow vs sun shots make a BIG difference.

RK that is a very nice looking Rubicon!
It looks like I have a couple hours before it rains again, so I am taking the top off and enjoy a little sun.

I saw my first Rock Lobster on the road the other day. A bright sunny day in Seattle and I hate to say it but it did look like a real red that sat out in the sun too long.

Congrats to the new owner.

I am viewing this on my iPad now and it looks Flame Red. I have 'digital vibrance' cranked on my desktop so it looked RL.
