I have black which I loved at first but now hate since wheeling. It shows every scratch and now my "new" Jeep looks like a 20 year old one. I think for those that wheel in woods or on overgrown trails like I do, silver, white, or tan may be a better choice.

I got white, which I totally dig (all my vehicles have been white w/black trim). However, it looks like 2013s are getting Commando Green and Billet. Had they been offered for the 2012s, I woulda gone with either of those over white. Still love mine though...

I wanted Flame Red but that color was discontinued for 2013. Went with black and absolutely love it. Not a big "off roader", mainly an asphalt hound. Black should be easy to resell if that time comes.

I went with Gecko. Love it! In my area there are way too many black, white, and silver. I guess if I didn't want to stand out so much I'd put my pants back on, and the doors.

The new one is commando and I'm pretty sure I hate it. Sometimes it's ok, but mostly I hate it. LOL I'm gonna miss my natural green - that color I really liked.

Gecko

I purchased my 2011 with green in mind. After looking at all of them together I chose black because I figured it would look better all blacked out. "All black accessories". I only wish they would have had Gecko when I bought it, because thats what I would be driving now. I'm still happy with it though.

2012 JKU in Winter Chill <---Love it more now than when we bought him!
2011 JK in Bright Silver <---Classic, great color. Still love it! I was drooling over the Sahara Tan when we bought him. Sadly, they did not have one configured(nor could they get one, as the 2012's were about to roll out) how I wanted, so we went with the Silver in the 70th An Edition.

Nice 70th!

Don't see too many up here in MI. We've seen JKU's in all three colors, but only have seen the JK in Silver, and that's ours!

I told my dealer: "I don't care, as long as it's not black".

Black:
-Gets hotter in summer time
-Shows every finger print, scratch, and dent like it's being magnified
-Shows swirl marks the first time you wax it
-Is VERY hard to touch up if needed in the future
-Is the hardest to keep clean
-Fades more quickly over time
-Is boring

I wish they'd bring back Deep Water Blue. One of the best ever. Atlantic Blue would also be nice. Anvil is going to be the best '13 color by far.

Dozer is a very......happy color.

I like it better on Sport's and Rubi's than Sahara's....especially on JKU's. I seem to like it more in pictures than in person...but I do like it enough to consider one. It isn't as intense as Crush, and I probably like it because it reminds me of a lot of good things from my childhood. Tonka trucks, Mac and Cheese, and Nachos. Then again....it also reminds me of school buses.....

On the lot I really liked the Dozer & Crush. I thought Gecko was too bright but the more I see it, the more I like it. The artic chill (blue) was nice too.

The only one in the area that had all the features I wanted was Deep Cherry Red Crystal Pearl. I was more concerned about features than color but the DCR really looks good with the Saddle Leather seats. It also looks different in varying levels of sunlight.

I didn't realize how close in color it was to my Harley's Red Hot Sunglow until parked next to it.

I really like them.

I originally wanted a 2013 Deep Cherry Red Jeep Sahara Unlimited, but had a hard time finding one with the options I wanted. Then decided I would take a white, Billet or a Black one with the specs I was looking for.

In the end it turned out I got a 2013 Black Unlimited Rubicon. Even though Black was not my first choice, when I saw it detailed and shiny it took my breath away. Now I love the color.

'12 Unlimited in Sahara Tan, and I love it. Only color I wanted, and I got the last one within 500 miles.



And a '52 M100 1/4 ton trailer to match.

I'm already thinking of adding a second to go with my Crush. Anyone know what colors are on the horizon for Wranglers in 2014? I was disappointed to hear that Gecko, Dozer and Crush are being discontinued.

I lived in the DC Area for 7 years (Arlington, VA & Crofton, MD). I still have Skins season tickets, that I sell to a buddy back there. I paid that huge initiation fee that Dan Snyder demands, so I'm not just giving up my tickets. RG III will be a good one. He just needs some more talent around him on offense.

Like your jeep.

I've never seen that color on a Jeep. That is beautiful. I'm getting ready to finally order a 2013, but I really don't like the colors for the 2013s. I preferred the blues & Mango Tango of 2012.
