White 2013 JKR.





It's my 4th jeep and 3rd wrangler. Last one was Steel Blue Pearl. Before that was Dark Blue Pearl...and before that was a red that looked like Flame Red.

I always thought that I might try White. It's easy to keep clean, hides scratches, easy to touch up, and cool in the summer....so when I found one on a lot with all of the options that I wanted (including 4.10 rear), I pulled the trigger. I have driven through a lot of bad weather since I've gotten it and up close you can see the dirt...but back up just a little and it looks 100% clean.

IMHO, White, Flame Red, and Black are the classic colors. Those are the only three colors that Chrysler doesn't seem to play games with...or screw up. There are a couple of shades of green that I like, but Chrysler screws up green more often than not...and I am not a fan of the new Commando Green. Besides, I had a green M151 when I was in the army, so I don't need to play soldier anymore.

Of the 2013 colors, I only considered White, Black and Deep Cherry Red. DCR is pretty damn good looking, especially with black trim...but I was up for a change....and red often doesn't age well.

I love navy blue, but it's another color Chrysler seems to screw up a lot. If I could choose any past color, it would be Deepwater Blue. That is a really sharp color...but then again, I like blue. The bright colors aren't really for me, but I will admit that when Crush and Dozer are built-up, they look very cool. Gecko? Not my thing...at all.

DCR for me.... it's great when clean bit it does not jode dirt well. an go Tango was great too... I might have gotten that over red but it isn't a 2012 color.

Crush has grown on me a lot since it first burned my retinas.

Gecko....and YES, I love the color. I was in WM parking lot the other day loading some groceries and a middle aged guy yelled across the parking lot, "GREAT color on a Jeep, GREAT color!"

Around here, EVERYBODY has a white one, a black one, or the odd ball red one thrown in. Black, white, and silver are just too....IDK....too much like some mid-sized rental car colors to me. They don't scream "Jeep Fun" to me.

I had a dark green TJ with a tan top and that is a very classic color combination that tends to come and go from time to time.

I LOVE the Gecko, but if I hadn't bought a 2013 Gecko, it would have been DCR....beautiful color....but maybe too "dignified" for a Jeep.

I also have a Gecko and love it. On a tight small street the other day. The kind that you need to pull off a little to let someone pass, a guy stopped even with me and said, "hey, I have to know the name of that color". I said, "they call it gecko green". He goes, "awesome, just awesome".

I feel like a 12 year old driving around a matchbox car, it's so much fun (I'm 40, btw). My kids also love it...

I actually think the bright colors won't go out of style, on a Jeep. I agree they do on other cars. I see older Jeeps driving around with bright colors and still think they look cool.

My 1st Jeep and it is White and I think my Wife is going to want her own ;-)
We both love driving it more than any vehicle we have ever owned.
Been driving since 1970 and have had many pickups, vans and SUV's.

2 emerald greens, 1 white, 1 red rock, and currently a Dozer. I like the Dozer enough, but I wish they would come back out with a better green with khaki interior and khaki top again.

'12 Dozer Sahara here and very happy. Had all of the regular colors on other cars owned in the past so wanted either a crush or a dozer. In the end went with dozer, as we found the crush to be way too orange after seeing a bunch of them in different lighting. Really like dozer, looks awesome in pictures on trails and in the city it turns lots of heads (to my surprise). I think it's hands down the best color out of the ones curently available, if your goal is a FUN sunrider to take on trails topless... If you want a classier look, dcr, black and white are GREAT colors, but that's not what we were going for.

Originally wanted a white one then considered Gecko Green but the more I looked at the Orange Crush JKU Rubi I went with it should be ready to go in 3-4 weeks. I'm excited I sold my Silver TJ 2yrs ago and have missed it ever since.
