Same for me, but ordered on the 16th. Maybe ours will be buddies on the train in a few weeks.

All I can say is that it better get here soon because I'm running out of things to buy. Everyday I think of something else I have to have. More accurately, I'm running out of money to spend on it.

I will either be extremely envious of the commando green/tan interior combo or I will be extremely happy I didn't dump my 2012 lol.

There is something about the green/brown combo that just seems right, I just hope Commando green is the shade it should be.

just a few more mockups for you guys while you wait. these were all matched exactly to the hue/saturation of the paint chip, while maintaining the highlights and shadows of the original shots.





The first one was flame red, the second was that darker pearly red, and the third was dozer. The resulting reflections on the paint are very different based on whether you use a pearl color or not. At least it seems that way. I'd have to do a few more to be certain of this. In reality I suspect it would look somewhere in between. I suspect that the red and dozer ones are TOO flat, since they are such bright colors to begin with and end up showing less contrast in a photo, while the CG likely won't have quite as much super shininess of the pearly colors. If I can find a non-bright and non-pearly color, that would probably make the best mockup.

OK here's one more. I think this one is easily the best of the batch. Started with cosmos blue this time, and I think it resulted in a really exact match to the color chip pdf, and also a 100% believable/realistic image.

Thanks for the great PS work. Especially like the second one. If CG is close to this work I'll be thrilled when mine comes in!

According to the graphic on jeep.com the rubicon lettering will be black. I thought I would prefer this, but looking at your work i think the light lettering looks better.

ah interesting, yeah i didn't mess with the color of "rubicon" on what i did, i just left it however it was on the color i was starting from. I could modify the white ones to be black so it's a better representation...

here's that last one again, the one i am guessing is closest to realistic/accurate... but with the black "RUBICON" stickers, per the jeep website mockup.

So I called IAMJEEP back today, after the lady told me yesterday I was Gate line but to call back today because I may be seeing my CG JKUR sooner than later. Today they told me that it has already been produced and is scheduled for Train Departure on 8/31 with estimated delivery to the dealer on 9/03!!! I don't want to get my hopes up but WOOT!!! If I get it next week I will be getting it 3 weeks sooner than I had hoped for!!!!

They aint sellin nothin!
