I purchased a Black Rubicon and really like the color!
They also had one in Dune and personally I did not think that it did the Rubicon justice. It lacked the luster and appeal that I was looking for..........

Any recommendation for a starwars edition for a flame red JK. Trying to do mine but can come up with a red option

Well since my dune jeep is a moab edition I can't really do a star wars theme. If I had a flame red I would probably dress it up in some x-wing decals or something

I went with 17" Mickey Thompson Classic Blacks with Toyo Open Country AT 2s. I can't wait to have me jeep. I love the look of dune on wranglers! Oh, I went with black leather.

Congratulations on your new jeep!

She's a six speed. I'm picking it up tomorrow so will post interior shots. The two tone looks fabulous. It's the only one there and people are raving about it and upset its sold. They have a rock lobster one as well. That's an interesting colour. Kind of the gecko or crush version of red I guess.

If I'd ordered Billet I'd have gone all billet, but I like the black accents against the dune. Mine has a garage at home and one at work, and I have 10 km of gravel every day, so it will be too dusty to ever fade!

If you follow Frank Herbert's "Dune" series, you could do a Moab Dhib edition!

Mines going to be called Arakis or Worm after the sand worms of Dune because it will be doing some digging.

I gotta say..this color is really sweet! Kinda reminds me of caramel in a sense or a deeper sand type (although I REALLY miss Sahara Tan!) Love the jeep man and that thing will look rediculous with big tires and classy rims!

Congrats!

WOW...that is really close to Lambo yellow (first shot)! freakin sweet man! Bout time they got around to making a really nice yellow hue that doesn't blind ya like the sun (Detonator Yellow!) LOL

I saw a Wrangler MOAB in dune color today at the dealership. It looked good but I wish they would bring back the light Khaki used years ago.

Delivery was scheduled for Wednesday but I talked to the dealer this morning, he said it's now suppose to get in tonight between 8pm and 3am. What a great surprise! I should be able to pick it up tomorrow or at worst, Wednesday!

In the right light, it can look like dozer. The colour is not that far off from Caterpillar in general. I had a Ford Courier 1/4 ton when I was a kid and they had a colour that was very close to Dune that I really liked at the time.

I quite like mine. It's got 250 miles on it already since picking up on Saturday evening.

Had a scratch on one black fender that was really quite noticable. Initially the dealer guy said "thats just the way they are, live with it", but on me saying "huh?" in just the right way, they said they'd buff it out or replace, and created a fix order re same.

My wife thought I was worrying about nothing , but at over $41,000, I thought their detail guy should have addressed it before I ever saw it and it should have been as close to perfect as possible on delivery. In my mind if " its just the way they are" , then take the unscratched black fender off one of the 20 on the lot and swap it with mine. I'll add my own scratches, thank you very much.

One of my daughters did the "squat lift" technique to lift the hard top while I wrestled with the factory installed soft top to remove it per label instructions. I really can't see how it would get damaged under there, but hey, with my luck... Too early for soft top up here with lots of snow still around.

IMHO, something dealers should advise of prior to delivery and do for new owners.

My last stick was a diesel Jetta, and I'm finding the clutch a bit of a long travel in first in finding a happy place to launch. It's got enough torque to move with zero gas pedal, put ever so slowly, and would benefit from more bottom end torque.

All in all, I quite like it, and already pillowed some deep snow in bull low!

So no one has gotten a rubicon unlimited with the color matched hard top and fenders? That's basically what I'm getting.

Along with the two tone dash and brown leather.
