No more Detonator Yellow?

Am I crazy, or do I really not see Detonator Yellow on the Jeep site right now for a 2011 Wrangler? Do they sometimes go into production shortages and remove the option? Seems weird for paint.

Not that it matters to me, just something I noticed.

I have a 2011 Detonator Yellow. Dealership where I got it, had 2-3 other yellow ones.

Only other color I wanted was black. I like the orange and the dark green, but the Mrs, and her 5 yr old really like the yellow, so it won out.

*edit- I almost forgot, make sure you aren't only looking at Rubicon's. For some reason a little voice is telling me the yellow is not an option on the Rubicon, or maybe not even the Sahara.

That's disappointing and a bad marketing choice IMO. the yellow is an iconic color for Wranglers. Its not like them taking away the Rescue green. I feel like the yellow is one of the most demanded colors.

Are there any reasons for this Pat? They were certainly not having trouble selling the Detonator Yellows. I couldn't snag one anywhere when I got my 2010, so I settled with the Rescue Green and a good price for making me 'settle' on the color

I thought the Dark Charcoal Pearl was a nice color too. They stopped it this year also. But since there was not that many with this color it makes mine a little more unique in the future.

Yeah, I'm not sure why they'd choose to stop producing yellow of all colors. Could probably do without one of the others first... I wouldn't think yellow would be the worst seller. But maybe I'm wrong.

I'm not looking for one, I have a 2011 Yellow 2dr. Just observing

My guess is they put in a paint shop to do special colors (like the anniversary edition) and chose to stick yellow in there to start off the year since it was gone in 2010. If true, I'll bet we'll see a lot of special edition colors in the years ahead.

Where's Detonator Yellow

My girlfriend & I really DID like Rescue Green( 1 2010 on the lot) but liked the 2011 interior so bought the Detonator Yellow, Kiss of death if I like the color, I guess, Redz1 we'll meet up sometime @ P City swap Jeep stories!

always seems to happen that the yellow "appears" again during the summer months. glad I got mine before they removed it from the color line up!

Your little voice should stop mixing prescription drugs with tequila. I ordered my Detonator Yellow 2011 JKU Rubicon in November. I think they stopped offering Detonator Yellow because it was too awesome and they couldn't sell any of the other colors.

It is. There are 2 detonator yellow Rubis here, a 2dr and a 4dr.

IMO chrysler is notorious for having colors available only for a short time. They have been doing it for years. I have quite a few yellow JK/JKU on the ground here, in my immediate area it's not the best seller. We do better with black, silver, cherry red, mango tango and sahara tan.

We bought the JKU with the Yellow top and yes it was tough to find. The dealer was less than eager to locate one so I googled and found only 3 in the province (Ontario) so we drove and bought it. In the US I was using cars.com to locate vehicles as I was thinking of importing one. Last I checked there were only 264 4D and very few with the yellow top. One rare and tough find. We love it - we saw this combination at the auto show during the winter.
