Definitely lighter than the mock up. I doubt the final product will be matte though so the look could still change.

The Sand Trooper is called "Dune-in-Matte" so its probably just a matte version of the production color.

So I stopped by the dealership when my Patriot was in for servicing, and picked up a 2013 brochure and other goodies.

The pics from the brochure that Pat, tvrbob, panthermark and others have posted are from a two page spread, which give a full shot of the front seats, including a little body color showing in the reflection in the driver's side mirror, a little of the body color on the driver's interior door...



(that pic should be rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise. That's the driver's door handle reflected in the pic)




You get a little more hood going left to right....





...along withe the interior of the passenger door (which I have not seen on the forum, and my cell phone sucks).

Included in the brochure was the 2013 buyer's guide, which does include the color swatches:




My impressions? The pics from the SEMA show, including the outdoor pics, and the LA Auto Show seem to match the actual brochure body pic closely, while the color swatch matches the mock-up. The swatches appear to be SUPER dark. The commando appears to be a very dark OD (as we know is not the case). The swatches/mock up appear to be too dark.

The overall color appears to be a very light brown/dark tan (think 'peanut butter') with no yellow hue I can notice.

The color may be very close to the brochure/SEMA pics, and while the brochure pic does not appear to have a glossy paint finish, I doubt it will be matte.


Amyways, that's my 0.02, and now back to the excrutiating wait....

I think it just depends on lighting. These low saturated colors seem to adjust depending on light. Dune will look cool.

Happy non-build day, Dune. Donlen still has your production date for today:

Initial Production is scheduled to begin:

Anvil Clear Coat (PDS) - 03/04/13
10th Anniversary Rubicon (2TJ) - 03/04/13

We know this isn't the case. Any updates?

Yeah, and at the top of the page it says last updated 12/05/12....WTF!? If Pat is right then it's only 8 more weeks.

Would any of you order sight unseen? I think I would.

Did Pat say it was 8 more weeks? I knew it was extended, but I didn't know that a new order/production date was given.

Have a link?

I just said 8 more weeks because Pat said earlier that Dune would open up in February (8 weeks from now) for March production. I'm just going by what he said. It's unofficial so I don't have a link. From what I've seen on the forum he's usually right about most things Jeep so I'm just assuming he's right about this too.

Oh how I wish he wasn't though.

Gotcha. Maybe it's on the same date from December (6th). The Donlen website updated 12/05, but still hasn't given a new Dune date.

I hope you're right, and we're not looking at February 28th!

Yeah I just looked at the donlen today. I'd like to order a Jeep as soon as possible. I'm really thinking of just getting Billet but my gut is telling me to wait for Dune.

You know I was just thinking that Dune might be one of those colors that is only available for a few months. Isn't that how Sahara Tan was? Even more reason to wait.

As of today Dune is still February order for March production

I thought the only color I would ever consider on a JK was Black.

But after seeing some of the pics from SEMA it looks super cool with the black accessories.

No can do, Chrysler considers it an export sale and your warranty is gone.

God I love Star Wars! If I get a Dune Jeep I might have to make it a Tatooine or Sarlacc Edition.

Got tired of waiting, and got nervous about what this color will really look like in person...so I went out and found a lightly used Sahara Tan Rubi. Couldn't be happier.

I would have loved to have gotten one with the 3.6L.


On a side note, boomerang is offering the color-matched rigid tire cover in Dune:


Jeep Wrangler JK Rigid Painted to Match Tire Cover

(Dune is the 2nd to the last in the dropdown

I wonder if they get the color directly from Chrysler:

Looks like someone from the forum was there, and the Sand Trooper was the only Dune Wrangler. I'd love to hear first-hand impressions:
