Can anyone confirm if the Gecko is still available? This is the route i want to go.. but i've read on a few forums that the gecko is discontinued. BUT, Jeep still lists on their website.

Gecko ended production back in December so you can't order it anymore. You'll either have to pick up a left over 13 on the dealers lot (probably not that many left at this point) or go used.

As someone that recently (as in 1 week ago today) bought a Gecko green 2013 JKU, I feel for you. My local dealer had no stock. I painstakingly used the Jeep.com Search Inventory tool and found that for a 2013 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara in "Green" there were (as of 1.5 weeks ago) 314 showing, out of which 24 were Gecko. The remainders were the Commando Green (not my favorite color). As luck would have it, I wasn't interested in a lot of options, and the ones that were in the model I found "local" (as in within 100 miles of home) I could live with the differences to get the color.

So, if you really want the color and can live with someone else's build spec, I urge you to take time and scroll through the Jeep.com Search Dealer Inventory feature. Open the search up to 200+ miles from your home zip code. If you have an idea of what features you absolutely must have, spec it to get MSRP, and you can filter the search results to exclude those models with less cost than your dream list. That's what I did eventually.

Good luck. If your actual local dealer is really going to work for you, then they should be able to do a vehicle transfer to get it to you. Or, you could work over the phone with the long distance dealer and perhaps coordinate transport after the sale.

Thanks guys. Really appreciate it.

Unfortunately I wasn't planning on buying Until end of summer, around Labor Day. I'm sure my luck will have run out by then. I've had my heart set on this color and extremely bummed out.

Mine is stock-ish. Only changes are HID projectors (with LEDs), a Light bar, a CB, and some netting.

It has a build date of December 2012. I picked it up in March.

The headlights are from this website: ©2012 HID Projectors

I have them painted with black reflectors and black projectors, with a LED ring and a single halo CFL ring.

Here is a close-up.



They are a drop-in replacement for the factory housings. Just make sure you tell the vendor that it is for a JK so that he sends you the canbus cancelers.

I know, we had to drive it out of the showroom floor and since it was in their building they wanted to drive it out.

Got mine about 3 weeks ago. Last one they had on the lot for 2012. Swapped out the silver jeep logo for a black one.

Hi. About to be a 1st time Wrangler owner. I'm about to pull the trigger on probably the last base Gecko Sport Unlimited in the US (no Sport S's left, and I don't want to pay for the Sahara since I'll lift it and change wheels/tires). Thankfully, it has trailer tow and 3.73 (hardtop and auto too). No LSD, but I can't be too picky at this late game. The only other option it has is Alpine BUT NO SIRIUS!! Never have seen that. Can I buy the radio off eBay with Alpine and Sirius and add the Sirius antenna? Dealer said that is not easy. Can I do it? Will it work? I like the fact it has Alpine. Thanks, Stuart from Michigan

Yes you can. They have a Sirius kit that has the antenna and cable in it. Install the antenna and run the cable along with your radio and you're set.

Thanks Jeff. I'll try it. I just have to make sure I get the correct radio...it would be 2013 Alpine + Sirius with no connectivity. (Of course, I have to buy the vehicle first!)
