Hydro Blue Pearl Thread

Well I felt it was about that time that we get our own love fest thread for Hydro Blue

Currently only available on the Freedom Edition, but later to be available at least on the Polar Edition in Europe (and possibly the US) in the Spring of 2014

I've got mine on order and of course will post a ton of photos once I receive her

It's like Cosmos Blues slightly darker sister...

BEHOLD!

Hey, Paul! Thanks for starting this thread!

I ordered my FE yesterday, and now I am IMpatiently waiting for my VIN email!

I already have my first mod in hand, and it didn't cost me a penny! I won a set of Rebel Off Road grab handles.

I don't particularly care for those types of grab handles for entering/exiting the jeep, for those I will order a set of Welcome Distributing GraBars. But the Rebel's will be nice for a place to rest your hand during normal driving.

Other things I'm thinking about:

Swap painted flares for black takeoffs
Swap wheels/tires with Mike
Lift
Rampage bumper
ACE silders
SpiderWebShade
Console cover (can't remember who makes it. $16 on amazon)

I can't wait! This will be the LONGEST six weeks in a LOOOONG time!

I had originally considered the whole swapping painted fenders for OE takeoff's - but after seeing the pics of the Polar edition - it doesn't look that bad with painted fenders either so I'll bump that down my list.

I do like those GraBars - will probably consider a set myself - one of the first things for me will be to paint/plasti-dip the grille black instead of that grey color it comes in and to pull the star decals off the hood and quarter panel.

I've got a #2 pool ball shifter on order along with a 24" AntennaX replacement antenna (should be here next week)

Other plans include -

ACE Rock rails (their shop is about an hour from me)
Painting stock wheels black
Truck-lite LED headlights
Clear LED sidemarkers and turn signals
Maximus-3 Grille Guard


Eventually a 2.5-3" lift (probably BDS because I know one of the owners) and maybe 35's

to what are you referring to LENBO? the Jeep itself? the pictures I posted are of the Polar Edition due out next year - but the color it is painted is Hydro Blue Pearl and the only real world examples so far of the new color.

Jeep.com hasn't been updated so you can't build one online, you have to talk to a dealer.

Oooh ok. That's interesting. It's a shame you can't use the graphic on here. Maybe you could get it made into a decal or something?

Didn't Pat or Milous post a 2 door version of the Blue Freedom edition?

I could have sworn I saw that somewhere and it looked real nice.

Milous did - but I'm not sure that it's an actual shot - or a photoshop

Pat said he's hoping to have pictures of Hydro Blue this weekend....

Fresh from Pat@Fieldsauto.com - Polar JK in Hydro Blue

Think I might peel my Oscar Mike badges off and replace with Polar ones when they become available :P

Hey Paul, don't we get clear turn signals on ours? I know the side markers are still yellow, but I thought the fronts were clear...

Ahha! I missed the key word ...LED!

Sorry, guess this cold medicine is making me loopy. I'll try to stay on track.

Has anyone decided what accent colors they want to use on their new hydro jeep?

I'm thinking grey or silver or more black. Not a sports fan really, so I don't want a college or NFL themed jeep.

I thought it'd be closer to the Deep Water Pearl Blue I had, but it looks closer to the Cosmo blue.

Hey Paul,

Can you ask your roommate a question for me? On the spec sheet for the FE it says that it comes with silver accent trim on the vent rings, steering wheel front grab handle, etc. I'm trying to figure out if it is the same accent color as is on a Billet jeep. 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!

Is there a difference between the hydro and the cosmos? I can't tell.

I'm guessing from Argent's comment that must mean hydro is a little darker than cosmos...

I was at the rally today in CT and there was one other jeep that looked my color ( I have cosmos) and its so rare I have only seen 2 others my color... But he said it wasn't cosmos. It looked identical. Maybe it was hydro....

It's so close in color why bother making a new one lol.

The new color. I wasn't a fan of the crayon looking blue they had a while back. The new blue is nice, it would be a toss up now for me between hydro and granite.
