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.

Nice experience, it is a color we have to see in person.

I went to the plant in Toledo 2 weeks ago, fortunately I found a 4door commando green, it looks like “burnt sugar and matcha mix”, I also confused why many pictures of this color look completely different..

After that I found some pictures of 2door, I think the commando of 2door looks better than the same color on 4door especially with the black soft top on it.

My 2door sahara will delivery next week, if I do not like this color I think I would like to paint army camouflage color

mines not even on the can. Just Production Scheduled. No other info. No vin. my only concern is my loan stuff is good for 30 days, after that I have to reapply. It's been about 2 weeks since I got the approval. I don't want to take another hit on my credit.

What does your current status say on insight? Mine still shows ramp compare inventory and I have no idea what it means.

That's a lot of the reason why I had waited to figure out loan stuff until my jeep was built. I knew it would be close on the 30 days.

Like many others here I am dissapointed with the Commando Green and have spoken to my dealer hoping to order another color. If Dune does not look the part then I will wait for Anvil as it is hard to go wrong with a darker Gray.....and of course there is always the Deep Cherry if all else fails.

I was hoping for more of a Military look such as the Army Green on the Toyota FJs. That shade of green is a little darker and has a semi flat look to it and just looks much nicer to my eye. Regardless it looks like it will be a long wait for my 2013 and this crazy color game Jeep is playing is frustrating for a new buyer like myself.

I knew this color would be different and I am all about it still even after seeing how dynamic it looked in every picture. But I took this time waiting and bought about 15k in a lift shocks tires gears rims bumpers doors and cage stiffeners. Mine will be sitting high and looking mill
