While I'd love to have a new commando green Rubi as soon as possible, I'll need to see it first before I drop 35K.

Did I mention that I hate the new rims?
I agree with wanting to see it in person...but is poses all sorts of problems.

That is how I was last year when I first really started shopping for Wrangler's. And what I've found out is that the staggered release and allocation process makes this a pain in the rear end.

If you want to see Commando Green in person before you buy.....it means that you won't be able to order until September.
And that assumes that you are able to order soon enough in September to catch an October build and a November delivery date.
Of course, if you miss the allocation...or want a stick and the October build date is full, it means you won't get your Wrangler until December....and by that time, you might be able to find a Wrangler on the lot and get a screaming year end sale.

This is all while hoping that another color you would consider does not close out.

I guess I don't see the problem with waiting or shopping around. I don't need my Jeep tomorrow. I don't want a build that is completely rare or an odd color, so I have faith that if I don't want to order, I will find something I want at a dealer. Color is also not set in stone with me. I have a list of colors I would be happy with.
Also, I would rather test drive it first. Am I certain I will like it? Sure. But what if I don't like the new seats or something else. I would rather know for sure before I go through any purchasing discussion. I'm not the type to put down a deposit, order a jeep, and then back out for a reason I could control

I'd probably be happy with an actual photo of a Commando JK from Jeep. I'd be surprised if they haven't already painted at least one for evaluation purposes.

Did anyone else see the Jeep ad inside the June 2012 Maxium magazine front cover...Its a green Jeep in the picture. Looks like a shiny olive drab color.

There is a pic here...on page 8 of the German PDF for the 2013 wrangler...but it is SMALL:

http://www3.jeep.de/pdf/specs/jeep_w...und_preise.pdf

Somewhat similar to the color in the pic with the white background posted on page 1...but the color in the PDF seems to have more of a 1970s refrigerator vibe.


I have been playing with the URLs on the Chrysler website trying to find staged 2013 content...but so far no luck.

Here's the ad from Maxim magazine:

Don't mind the flash.

Considering it is an ad for a 2012, that's not Commando. That's likely Rescue. That's also not really what I would consider close to Olive Drab.

I'm anxious on seeing the commando green in person. I have always wished I'd gone with the rescue green from 2010 when I got my silver jeep. Love the silver too but that shade of green or close to it (commando) is really something I want to see up close.

My local dealer contacted me at 9am CST and said he wasn't able to bring Commando green up in the system yet. Said it must be Monday. May check another dealer this afternoon in case it gets updated later.

Where is that dealer located? Of the 3 I called in Georgia, only 1 has told me to come in and order. The other two said it was not available yet.

Same here. Was hoping for a possible early release like Pat hinted at, but it's a no go with the local dealer. Hopefully Monday I'll get to order!

That one was in Monroe, WA. I find it strange that he could see it, but others can't. Doesn't make sense.

He was in Monroe, WA. I can't understand why some can and some can't. Strange...

Checked 3 dealers this morning about Commando. PGH Commando isn't showing up. BUT ~ I did end up going from 1% under Inv to 2% under Inv for my trouble. I'll be heading up Tuesday.

If you want to see Commando Green in person before you buy.....it means that you won't be able to order until September.
And that assumes that you are able to order soon enough in September to catch an October build and a November delivery date.
Of course, if you miss the allocation...or want a stick and the October build date is full, it means you won't get your Wrangler until December....and by that time, you might be able to find a Wrangler on the lot and get a screaming year end sale.

This is all while hoping that another color you would consider does not close out.
How far in advance do people know about a color close out? I'm pretty set on CG, but would like to see Dune and the 10th anniv Rubi (Anvil maybe?) before pulling the trigger.

I guess if one door closes, a window opens up.

Pat or Milous usually ets us know well in advance.

We do know that certain colors will end this year. For instance, Crush will end production on 11/9/2012, which means that you will probably have to order in October to make sure you are in the November build. Rock Lobster starts production on 10/1/2012. So if you want to see Rock Lobster in person before you order it...and Crush is your back-up color....there is a good chance that the window for Crush will be closed before Rock Lobster actually hits dealer lots. It will really depend on when the window for the November build closes (in October) and how long it will take for a Rock Lobster get built and shipped.

It is what it is.....

I'm getting a quote back on monday. Unlimited, soft top, six speed. Even if it is close I think I can drab it down with a bit of work. Maybe have a shop scuff it with 2000 and shoot a flat clear on it.

Wow, never noticed that. Wonder how close the tan background is to the saddle interior? Below are capture of the web page colors and swatches side by side. More difference that I thought there would be.

Thanks for the link, it's probably another rendering vs a real photo but does provide some info. Commando sounds way better than avocado

It's amazing what you can find when doing some url guesses, especially when someone forgets to block directory listings.
