Mine stays cleaner looking than I thought it would. Having said that, I find my Jeep 2 door to be time consuming to wash. I love it though.
I still haven't washed mine since I bought it 3 months ago. The dirt really doesn't show much and the dirt that does show looks like it is supposed to be there! I will wash it this week so I can get a good idea of what it is supposed to look like again!

My Gecko is slowly gaining its personality. Gecko and Black just looks wonderful.

Not yet, but its on my list.
We have an Airraid cold air intake on our 2007 JK and really breathes now. Sounds louder but only improves MPGs by a very tiny amount. Maybe a gallon if even.

Slimer (2012 Rubicon)

Well, this is my pride and joy. Only had it for about three months now and wish I would have had one a long time ago.. The trailer is a 1960's M416 I just finished restoring.

Added a rugged ridge exhaust kit, rugged ridge front and back floor liners, rugged ridge entry guards and a K&N Performance Intake 77-1566KP. The engine sound much better now.

That is perfect. Nice job. Now you need black wheels on the Jeep to match...

Look great, much better than stock tires. I did the same to mine except I added 305/60r18 nitto terra grapplers.

Took delivery on the 4th, but ended up leaving it there until the 5th as the undercoating wasn't fully dry. Could possibly be one of the last Gecko's off the line.

We got the black appearance group, ordered sill guards, getting grab handles soon as well as a grill insert. A member on here makes some nice paracord ones and a seller on eBay makes a very nice aluminum insert, does powder coating as well. Tires and lift down the line when tires are needed.

My New Gecko

Thanks for this thread. I have been trying to custom order a gecko and the dealer could not figure out why the option did not come up. Yesterday thanks to this thread I was able to inform them that the color was not longer able to be ordered.

With that said, I sold my 2009 JKU Sunburst Orange Dec 5, 2012 and from that day started looking at the Gecko Rubicon. After an exhaustive search for the options that I wanted I decided to build one, but alas we could not.

I am happy to report that I just picked up my Rubicon today!!

Whoot!!
