I tell you what; I have never seen an enthusiasts forum where....

... A bunch of dudes obsess over color as much as this forum!

I wonder how much shorter the 10th Anniversary Rubicon thread would be if Anvil was just plain old grey. Then there are threads dedicated to: "X color waiting room," or, "Show me your Y color Wrangler with Z color wheels (usually black)." Speaking of black, we can't forget about Plasti-Dipping... With all this fretting over color perhaps Wrangler owners could moon-light as interior decorators? Maybe not, data from the, "what color do you have, hmmmm..?" polling thread indicates the majority of owners just buy black Wrangler. Ironic.

In actuality, I see all this talk of color for what it is: pure enthusiasm! I think it's great! I also applaud Jeep for giving owners the opportunity to buy a vehicle in an interesting color, which can actually convey something about the owners themselves. The last thing we need is another line of vehicles that are five shades of boring, OH(!), and burgundy because - you know - we don't want to be stuffy. The most interesting color offered on my last car was Mayan Bronze (read: brown). Yay!!....meh.

So keep the threads coming because I see it as just another great thing to talk about regarding jeeps!

This is so true. It seams like %70 of of the threads deal with the way a jeep looks lately.

I asked the dealer for a basic model without all the power crap. (just more to fail and cost me down the road) Just give me the window cranks and A/C. Even the manual Trans. I like. Turned out the only unit he had to meet that criteria was black.
I'm OK with it. Color really doesn't matter much to me.

I didn't even know you can get a basic Jeep anymore.
When I bought my Black 04 TJ, it was a manual trans 4 banger with no stereo, speakers or antenna. My air has been broken for years, except for the heater. I'm pretty much topless all summer and I would even get one with no air if I could. Good to know you can still get a Jeep with as little bells and whistles as possible.
