Amp'd - seen in person?

Hello all,

Has anyone seen a 2014 Wrangler in Amp'd? I'd love to see some true to life pics. Everything on the internet looks different and can't tell what it really looks like. None in my area unfortunately.

I have just ordered one this week. It's another one of those colors that look different depending on the light. There was one sitting right next to a Dune one on the lot I visited, and I thought the Amp'd looked like a brighter version of Dune, only a little more of a gold. Of course I liked it since I ordered one, but I have a feeling it will be a color that not everyone will like.

its your jeep! long as you like the color... no one else really matters! you'll find a lot of opinion on the forum i know... i know... say it ain't so...

i'm interested in seeing the color myself! might be in the market for a new JKU at the end of the year... we'll see...

I guess I just need to see it live. I thought it may have just been the lighting in the different pics, but to hear that's how it is in person says I should see it before ordering. Thanks for the info!

Same at my dealer. My teenager thought the two were actually the same color. To me, Amp'd looks like a metallic variant of Dune (that's not a cut, but simply an observation). I am surprised that Jeep offers both since they are so close.

Look at the "Are you amp'd over amp'd " thread. Lots of pics in there. As far as seeing it unperson, I do every morning and love the color. The kids have named the JKUR "The Golden Nugget".

Thanks jeepers29, I had not yet seen this thread. It should help to lessen the wait stress until my RubiX arrives.

Thanks for the info and pics. Here it looks like a cross between gold and the sun which is how I want it to look in person. Some pics it looks like green gold which creates some confusion.

Figured I'd share...

There's an AMP'd on the Benny Boyd DCJ lot on 71, just west of Bastrop, Texas if anyone close by wants to see one in person.

If you decide to go by, send me a PM and I will make sure my sales guy treats you right.

I will say AMP'd is definitely one you want to see in person. Pictures just don't do it justice since it is a metallic and pearl paint. So many shades it's hard to capture in a photo. Loving mine though.

It definitely is and when you see if you have to keep in mind that the color is different depending on the light at that moment. I'm loving mine! Up to 300 miles now.

Amp'd is really nice. I was surprised by how taken I was with it when I saw it for the first time up close and personal.

That's sure good looking! Oh about 12 hours from now I head to the dealer to pick up my JKU X. Same color combo as yours. I hadn't seen it yet as it was moved here late Saturday night from a dealer in Texas. I did see another Amp'd wrangler before I decided and the color is pretty darn cool in person. I normally buy black vehicles but this color grabbed me.

I parked my Dune Rubi next to an Amp a couple weeks ago, and took this picture...
