If I end up getting something else, I will be OK with that too.

If they revisit Mango, it'll probably be when they switch back to "the minivan motor."

Still a whole bunch of Pez colors to do first.

Some people can't handle black.

im sure someone else said it, the 3.6 is still a minivan engine. the jeep is not a replacement for a sportcar. i wont mention the fact that once you armor up and swap to offroad gear, it will drive even more like a boat. but really, if speed is what changes your mind between 2 wranglers; youre buying the wrong vehicle. my jeep does fine of the highway; and you should see it when i actually use it. get the jeep youre proud to be seen in, no one will notice the difference between the 2, especially looking at it. but ill be damned if i drive around town and men dont stare at me in envy. because mango is one sexy color, and on a wrangler it just is the all around sexiest

No. Indeed, even some 2012 colors can no longer be ordered.

Your options are to accept another color, find a Mango Tango from 2010 or 2011, or pick another color and paint it aftermarket. That's it.

Just last night a lady chased my hubby down on the interstate to find out what color our Mango Tango is called. but she started off saying "im not a nutcase, but....." lol also wanted to know about the new wheels we had just put on. She wanted one for her daughter, and just had to know more about it. We got the last MT in Augusta! Funny thing is, we had never seen that color before. We love it!!
