I'd have to look at them side by side. Why do you ask? I saw the picture of hydro blue this morning that was posted and I liked the color. Which is why I commented.

I think based upon photos that Hydro blue is a bit deeper blue than Cosmos - but being a pearl color, depending on the light can be close to Cosmos....

Cosmos Blue


Hydro Blue


I tried to find similar photos under similar lighting conditions to better represent (not easy to do with very limited Hydro Blue photos out there)

If I can ever find a Cosmos Blue in the wild after I get mine I'll be sure to park next to it and take comparison shots....

That way I've got some idea of at least what the interior colors will actually look like.

I posted the same question in the 2014 thread, but no one there ever commented. I guess maybe I wore out my welcome over there.

Thanks! I appreciate it!
He's just a salesman :P you'd be better off sending Archer or Pat a PM since they've seen it in person...but I'd guess the interior silver accents is the same stock color found in the other Wranglers....

I'll end up pulling my vent rings (and if I can the ones on the steering wheel) and painting them Hydro to match.

As for the hood...no I don't have any inside information on getting one - not even sure I want to add another $1000 to my price just to add the hood...not to mention the longer wait time to get my Jeep after the dealership gets it while it waits for the body shop to paint it etc...

And after having looked around - I'm guessing the wheels that the FE comes with are the standard 17" "Moab" wheels which is fine because I like those a lot better than the weird things most of them come with these days...

Thanks, Paul! I appreciate it!

Not sure what I think about painting the accents hydro... I guess maybe if hydro turns out to be the same color as the blue SWS, then everything would match. But I think I am leaning towards silver/grey accents with a grey SWS.

Of course this will change at least 38465629 times before my jeep ever arrives!

I didn't know you were thinking about changing the hood. That seems like one HELL of an upgrade! I think the louvers are kind of cool, but I'd be TERRIFIED of Mike chopping up my baby! Anyway, I've got enough ideas to keep me busy for now.

Those are the mineral grey sparkle wheels? They aren't bad, better than stockers, but I'm still looking forward to Mike's black 33s.

I haven't seen the new Freedom yet, but I am being told the vent rings are the normal silver color we see on the other Wranglers.

Mopar makes an interior kit that looks like carbon fiber. It looks pretty cool with the black interior.

Thanks, Pat!!! I appreciate it!

Now I know what I'm looking at. Mike's Billet has the silver interior accents.

Side by side is the only way to tell. There was a crayon looking blue a while back that I didn't like at all. This one from the pics is nice, at least IMO.

I used to paint with my father before I joined the Navy. I have a good eye for color, but would never comment to a customer if I liked the color they picked for a room or the outside of their house. I saw some real gems too. In this case I will only comment on colors I like, and won't comment on any I don't like. LOL

What is SWS? And yeah I wouldn't chop the hood, I would replace it with the X hood, or maybe the AEV vented hood...

Thanks Pat for chiming in on my humble post

And Starbrite, my plans are to remove or repaint any of the silver accents I can (grille, bumper inserts, wheels etc) and stick with just black/blue

Sorry! SWS is SpiderWebShade. Just get tired of typing it out all the time. I should just add it to my auto-correct list. LOL

We have the blue SWS on Mike's Billet and it contrasts really well. We liked it so much we rattle canned his grill insert blue to match. I was thinking of trying to do the same to mine, but without knowing for sure what colors everything is and how they play together, I guess I am stuck waiting.

I definitely have enough time left to plan out all possible scenarios so that I'm ready to run through them all once it gets here.

And thanks again, Pat!

I wonder if there will be a decent but cheap rattle can paint match, so it doesn't all have to be done with MOPAR. That could add up REAL quick!

This top photo is not Cosmos Blue. It is called Surf Blue Pearl, a 2010 jeep color. Very similar if not exact match to Hydro Blue

See that's the issue. I have cosmos blue and they both look like an exact match to
Mine.

So I was parked and a brand new hydro blue was next to me....... They looked identical to me.

Do they rename the colors sometimes for marketing to get better results?

There are very very few jeeps my color out there be it cosmos or hydro.

No problem, just trying to help. Blue was on my Radar for years as i was shopping for my unlimited Rubicon.. the picture above I actually took the summer of 2010. I opted to wait till the motor/Tranny upgrade and ordered my 2012 cosmos in the fall of 2011.Think of hydro blue as a Mettalic Cosmos blue.. As if it were a silver base coat over a Cosmos clear... Either way its a bad ass color... I was at a Jeep show with over 200 jeeps, half of them JK's and I was the ONLY Cosmos

That makes perfect sense and why outside they looked identical. At the great American jeep rally yesterday with over 700 jeeps there were 2 cosmos/ hydro blue wranglers or jeeps of any model. Me and the new one I talked about.

I personally think Hydro is alot nicer shade of blue then the cosmos. i was leaving the saw grass mills mall this afternoon, and seen a true blue pearl. as nice as it looked i would take a hydro blue over that any day.

Yeah, I had a Patriot Blue Dodge minivan about twelve years ago which is almost the exact same color as True Blue. Hey, it's blue and that's good, but most of the time it looked black, especially if it was dirty.

Hydro Blue is DEFINITELY a more exciting color!

With my monitor those colors look the same, its the light they were taken under that is screwing things up. I would imagine they'd sometimes change the name of a color and not change the color itself.

Yes that is the 2014 Polar Edition Wrangler in Hydro Blue....it was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor show last week - so that is what the color will look like.

And I think this is Cosmos Blue - they are all very similar - Pat@fieldsauto.com said that Hydro was darker than Cosmos, and lighter than Deep Water.
