New banner wtf?

Is it just me or is it odd that the new banner has two crush jeeps? I can understand updating the jeeps across the top, but there are other "new" colors, such as my beloved Gecko, Dozer, Red, Cosmos blue? Just curious what others think?

Gecko is considered an "eye-sore". Won't work for advertisements!

That's probably because that's who showed up to the photo shoot... I missed the memo.

Do you know people that own jeeps in all those new colors, and that you can get them all in one place for a photo op??????

Then get the photo and submit it for a banner.

I'm appalled that there are 3 black Jeeps in the banner. I'm going to have nightmares about finger prints, scratches, clearcoat swirls, being able to scramble eggs on the hood, and body panels that are noticeably different shades tonight.

Colors could easily be changed in Photoshop. Not sure the actual owners of those Jeeps would approve... Just an idea...

If my jeep was proudly displayed in the forum banner and someone came along and decided it needed to be be blue instead of black, I'd have to make a part of them black and blue.

At least they didn't include a disgusting '13 in the pic.
Thank God for that!

Just kidding the kidder.
PS Like the new banner -- looks cleaner.

Dude don't take it personally. It was taken from a recent Jeep trail ride get together by some of the members of the forum. Just happened to be 2 Crush Jeeps that showed up. Besides, is there a better color?

I like it.

Of course, it helps that there is a white JK and a white YJ in the lineup.

The photo was taken last weekend on a run organized by some long time members. It was a planned run and an open invitation.

There were many photos taken throughout the day, when we were on the top of a hill with a scenic background we decided to take some group pictures.

We were fortunate enough to have a member that knew the website was looking for a new banner decide to submit his photo, a damn good photo at that.

There was no planned photo shoot and there was never any colors requested.

I'm a little surprised by the comments. I thought the original banner was cool since it showed that owning a Jeep brought so many people together to enjoy the sport of 4-wheeling. I couldn't even tell you what color Jeeps were in it. It's sad that instead of thinking of the positive, people are feeling slighted because a certain color was or wasn't in the photo.
