I appreciate your info. Any chance you want to go back to the dealership and take some pictures instead of altering one? Thanks all the same.

Supposedly the plant operates 2 out of 3 Saturdays if I remember correctly. There is a post about it in this thread a few pages back.

My CG hit KZ last night! Scheduled to load on a rail car right now and delivery to the dealer estimated for October 1! The registration on my Cherokee expires October 1 lol

Yeah it's the same color, just more commando on the unlimited. Most of the pictures have been of unlimited or body color top. Now just waiting to see a 2 door sport or rubi in commando! I think it will be just the right amount of contrast for me.

That looks great! Looks like it could almost be rescue green in the first picture, but less green. Thank you for posting! =D

Now I can imagine what my Sport will look like with side steps and different wheels.

Nice Jeep...
The color in those pics don't look as washed out as some of the other pics floating around. I'm looking forward to seeing GC and Billet in person.

No dealerships around me have any CGs yet. I still haven't seen one in person.

Saw a commando green sport today at a lewisville, TX dealership and my wife and I both thought it had a yellow tint to it. ...... So we are still undecided! Had our heart set on a 2013 commando rubicon but now we are not sure! Didn't like the silver stickers, should be black instead.

All the photos I've seen hint at that yellow tinge. I was hoping for something much closer to an ammo can from the surplus store. Seems like I'll need to paint it myself to get what I want. My stickers will all be removed so those are of no consequence to me but I agree black would be a better fit.

I saw a Commando Green Wrangler today at a dealer's lot and I want to share my impressions of it. I'm one of those guys that really wanted CG to be dark and look as much like U.S. Army Olive Drab as possible. I was very disappointed when I saw the first pictures of it because I thought the color was entirely too light.

For a reference point, I'm gong to refer to the 2 door and 4 door CG pictures on the Jeep website. In terms of lightness, I will rank the 4 door picture as a 1 and the 2 door picture as a 10. Given this scale, in person and in sunlight, I would rank the CG as a 3.5. It really doesn't look anything like the 2 door CG pictured on the Jeep website and it looks darker than the picture of the 4 door. In my opinion, both pictures from the websites got it wrong.

The color really changes from the angle you look at it and the amount of light hitting it. It the shadows, it looks more like olive drab green, in normal sunlight my wife described it as "avocado green", while in direct sunlight, the green kind of washes out and it looks yellowish brown. This really is a color you have to see in person to appreciate.

In my opinion, all of the pictures (not photoshops) that people have taken and posted here are pretty much right. The color just looks different in different situations. I recommend ignoring the two current photos on the Jeep website. Am I disappointed with the color? Yes, because the name is misleading. It never should have been named "Commando Green". The color isn't an Army green type of color. Having said this, the color does have a charm of its own. Once I got past my commando expectation, I really started to like the color. I saw it in a big row of black, white, and red jeeps and it really stood out of the crowd.

I ordered a CG a month ago. I was seriously considering buying another jeep because of my disappointment with the pictures of CG jeeps. After seeing it in person, I'm keeping the CG jeep I ordered. I think you really have to see this color in person before you decide.

Just my 2 cents.
