Granite Crystal for me.

i found a photo of a Sahara with the wheels i'm looking for and Klinkenstein here was kind enough to show me what my future Sahara may look like. so yes i'm impatiently waiting for Granite Crystal also.

Me Too!

I'm down with GC unless Jeep pulls a fast one on us and by the grace of God re-releases Rescue Green. Then I'm jumping ship!

BTW- Based on the GC I've seen in person, I think your photoshop rendering is a little too brown. I think the final color will be more gray / silver. But I like your brownish version better!

I actually went by a dealer I hadn't spoken with yet to test drive a 2013 Rubicon unlimited. They were the only dealer in my area that had one on their lot. I had never driven the rubicon so I wanted to test drive it. The one I test drove had 15,000 miles on it and was an automatic. Drove good, but felt weird. I told my wife and I still can't explain it. It didn't feel like a Jeep. The leather wrapped steering wheel,etc. I'm not saying it isn't something I can get use to, but I still can't explain the weird feeling. I think I'm gonna have to test drive a manual again. But I think the auto is the best fit for me in the long run...

When I was talking to the salesman yesterday I told him I was wanting to order the granite crystal so he talked to the manager and came back and said, "The manager thinks we can order this today. If we can order today would you consider ordering it today?" I said, YES, but I'm pretty sure it isn't available yet. Anyway, not available to order(no surprise to me). He said the allocations open on August 7th or 8th and they should know by then. I really hope granite crystal will be ready to order in the next few weeks. Hopefully we will all get some good news next week on when we can order!

Here is another photoshop picture of the granite courtesy of Klink What I'm hoping my granite crystal and half doors will look like

That's the day that they will announce the production dates of the colors, but I don't think you'll be able to order all colors next Friday. Chrysler staggers their production dates for colors, special editions, even some options.

Pat confirmed that 2 new colors will be available to order next week! I am hoping granite and copperhead are the 2 new colors, but I would settle for Granite and Hydro

Pat said he will confirm which two new colors will be available on monday. Fingers crossed

I'd *like* to get the Granite, but if it isn't available soon I'm going to have to fall back to black instead. Next week will tell.

Or maybe Wednesday or Thursday! One of the dealers I spoke to said their allocations open on the 7th or 8th so I am hoping it is earlier than Friday, but Friday is fine also. I'm ordering as soon as I can! Can't wait to join the 2014 Waiting room

If this is what the granite is going to look like, I may have to take a bath on my 2013 billet and trade it in for a 2014. That color is BA!

I love it - saw it on a couple Chrysler cars and thought it would be perfect on a Wrangler.

It's my new first choice when I'm able to order the Rubi X.

Sweet color!! I wanted the billet for my '13 but wasn't available at the time so I will just have to love my white for awhile.

So excited to order this week. Was thinking about a sport s optioned up with the wheel package. Now that it adds suspension why not get a rubicon. Decisions decisions.

ProComp Series 8179

The wheels are ProComp Series 8179. I believe no longer manufactured but still available at various dealers. I am now considering BirdDog wheels.
