Well.....looks like I'll be ordering either billet or rock lobster (saw rock lobster today on the dealer lot and it is pretty damn sweet).

Someone PM me their email address, I asked a salesman for info on Dune, and he sent me a pic, it looks white to me. For some odd reason I cannot get it to copy and paste out of the email, it's really strange. I'll send it to you and you can see what you think. It might be the lighting, or it might not be right at all, but it's what I was sent by a Jeep dealer when I was inquiring on colors, as I ordered my Billet Jeep from him.

I saw no pink in rock lobster. It reminded me of a bright red stop light.

Lol it was just a quick drive by. I'll check it out again tomorrow. I do admit that billet would look bad ass with some blacked out wheels and a darker gray or black grille. Might have to drive an hour to go see one in person.

Like I said, I wasn't sure either, but I asked if he knew what Dune is going to look like and he replied:

"Dune will be available to order in January for February production. It will be like a beige sand color with a tint of yellow."

and sent me that picture..

The early pics of commando were mostly photoshop jobs and most of them looked awesome. Foolishly enough I took the bait and ordered. I remember someone snapped a few pics of the actual color in the factory while on the assembly line. Those pics were close enough to make me doubt my order and from what I remember were pretty accurate.

I am sure a real photo would not be truly accurate however it would be close enough to form an early opinion. If nothing else it would allow us to see how it looks in stock form with factory trim parts.

If at first glance it does not truly grab me I would most likely skip it as I did with commando. Most peoples first instinct is correct and even though I was in denial when I saw the first real photo of commando I knew I would not like it just based on my gut reaction.

I spoke to my dealer today who said yes she still had my deposit and was waiting for me to come order. She confirmed Dune is on hold for now and also said the 6 speed tranny was on hold as well. I have to be there this weekend to go over some options. I was tempted to wait for Anvil however I feel that will be limited only to the 10th anniversary Rubicon.

While that sand trooper looks very slick the color from the actual photos gave me the same feeling as commando when I saw it......was just not feeling it so looks like I have to choose between something other than Dune.

Nooooooo!!!!!! So we're talking late March before they hit the dealer lots? I hope I can get a new $500 cash allowance around that time, mine expires 1/31.

Looks like the waiting continues.....

I didn't want to wait. I did DCR and will hopefully have my rig by New Years. Now had Dune been December as planned.........

Was going to wait to see dune, but time to move on. Circumstances just won't allow me to postpone any longer.

Worst movie ever...

I didn't understand it as a kid on HBO nearly 30 years ago....and I tried to watch it about two weeks ago. I was still like...WTF is this crap? What is going on? How bad are these special effects?

Maybe if I didn't live 2200 miles away :/ I'm sure Dune will be displayed. The auto shows (Chicago, Detroit, LA) are when auto makers display the up-coming models and colors. If it's not there then something is seriously wrong with Jeep because I think this color has been talked about for a while.

Heh. It's David Lynch. If you didn't like Dune, stay away from Eraserhead.

Do you know where Pat got these pics, Panther?

99% sure that he is referring to the 2013 Wrangler brochure, the one you'd get through Jeep.com or your local dealer. They are cell phone photos that Pat took of the brochure.

Here are two more that he took:

From what I've seen, the "Sand Trooper" concept in Dune made an appearance.

There are other pics of the "Sand Trooper" out there:





















How does it compare to the mock-ups:






Pretty decent match, if you ask me. Loving it so far, please release it sooner, Jeep!
