I received my production scheduled email today. I called to see if they had a build date and that is how I received my estimated ship date. So, yours might be right there with mine...

Get a dealer on the hook and then tell them that you don't want to order yet because you haven't seen the actual color. They might just offer to order a second one in a different color in case you don't like the green

But now, I'm rethinking my tire choice. The 15" Viper is 27 pounds. The 35x12.5x15 BFG KM2 is 62 pounds, and the Goodyear MT/R w/Kevlar of the same size weighs in at 67 pounds, only five pounds more.

I like the aggressive design of the Goodyear MT/R, so now I'm leaning that way instead of the KM2.

Now that I'm cooling to the tire of your choice Ken, what do you have to say about that!?

Anyone else have any thoughts on that setup? Black Rock Viper 15" with the 35" Goodyear MT/R w/ Kevlar.
Just curious - what's the weight of the same tire and wheel combo in 17"?

That's the same way a lot of us Crush owners were last summer... Nobody had ever seen it at the time, and we had a ton of posts in The Crush Waiting Room by the time we actually did see it. I applaud everyone in here!

Hope it turns out looking great!

BR Viper 15" = 24 lbs.
GY MTR 35"x15" = 67 lbs.
TOTAL of 91 lbs. This is what I just bought.

BR Viper 17" = 31 lbs.
GY MTR 35"x17" = 64 lbs.
TOTAL of 95 lbs.


The difference in tire price pushed me to the 15". But I also like the look of lots of rubber on the 15" tire.

The commando green color on the jeep.com website sure looks different in the JK picture vs. the JKU picture. Also, the new Sahara wheels in both of these pictures look much different (darker centers) than actual photos that have been posted of the new wheels.

I believe we're at the mercy of the Chrysler employee so dubbed "the Photoshop guy." The attempt is pretty bad.

I wonder if they have the same guy painting Dozer Jeeps and doing Photoshop work.

It could be either of those colors or anything in between and I'm sold.

I agree they both look good. I actually like the Sahara wheels in these pictures better than the real ones ...too bad they are not really two-tone like that.

You Commando peeps, who ordered at the begining of the allocation, message me with your Vin. I was actually able to get a CG Vin to pull up this am. If you ordered yesterday it won't show up.

This color is looking good, anything remotely military looking is a good thing for Wrangler.

It has been done.

I have ordered my first Jeep.

I was two days away from ordering a 2013 Gecko, when I saw the Commando Green pop up on the choices last night. What a lovely colour. I think the 4 door color is a bit lighter due to the photoshoped reflection of the beach in the doors. But if its wither the 4 door or the 2 door color I will be happy.

I got a 4 door Wrangler Unlimited S (with the 17" wheels). The only option that I got was the Max Tow Package with the 3.73 rear end.

This gave me an MSRP of 29,410. With my 1% under invoice employee benefit with the bank, and the $500 off Targeted Marketing Program, My end price was 27,603.

Now its only the waiting.

When did you get your targeted marketing info? Better yet, when was it set to expire?

I got it by going to jeep.com and requesting a brochure. A few days later, I got an email from Jeep. When I told this to my dealer he said. "Oh! I bet your in the TMP system, give me your address and I will look you up". Sure enough, I was there and he was able to get a code for $500 off. It ends 72 days after you request the brochure.

Another First timer......

Just ordered my first Jeep. A JKUR in Commando Green from Roberson Jeep in Salem OR. Many thanks for all the useful information on this site, including the Tread Lightly Affiliation Discount which went smoothly. Looking forward to delivery, and will try not to obsess over the calendar. Has it been 1 day yet? Have been wanting a Jeep since high school and finally fulfilling the desire. I, like many others, am already shopping around for accessories. I'm sure the list will end up lengthy....

Does anyone have a high res version of the CG Unlimited I can use as my new wallpaper? I am going to be beside myself waiting until mine arrives at my dealer now that the actual color is available to see on the Jeep website! Didn't order until 8/16, so I have a while to wait...
