pat@fieldsauto.com WRANGLER Gecko Green (PFM) paint will be orderable in early February.

GeckoJK Gecko is an option on the Jeep.ca site now. If it is available as an option on there then it would make sense it is available for order now

I have the brochure, too, and unfortunately you can not rely on these pictures. The one showing the Gecko is exactly the same picture that was showing a different colour in the previous year's brochure (I think it was either detonator or blue). The colours are just photoshop-ed in over the same picture by the marketing department. I am also looking at ordering the Gecko, but would like to see it in person first.

tgeep Anyone with Cosmic in there name can certainly say rainbowy. The Charger a few years back had a lime like green that was flat and less shiny than I suspect a pearlcoat to be.

It refers to the finish style - some are metallic coat (metallic flakes that shine in bright light), some are flat (straight clearcoat), some have pearl coat (that pearly "rainbowy" look).

Yes, I said rainbowy.

This is the Kawasaki green I am familiar with, if Gecko is the same that thing will be bright. I had a 1990 ZX-7 identical to this, what a fun bike that was.

lulu13 I have been stalking this site for a while for any news on Gecko and finally to join & chime in. I see that Gecko is listed as pearlcoat on the Canadian website. Also to note, if you belong to Costco, gecko is listed as an option in their auto program. Does anybody know if you can tour their Toledo plant once production starts to see what the color will look like as it comes off the line?!? I want to order one ASAP, but the color variances in photos scare me a bit.

The Chrysler Fleet Guide does not show it as pearl coat either.

GeckoJK I have been watching the Jeep.ca site for a few days now. Yesterday Gecko showed up but it says image coming soon when you build one. I am hoping this is a sign it will be available for order soon

Gecko

Mel143: Thanks for the information regarding your frustrating call to Adam at Jeep Customer Service. As you said, most of the times I've called there the people are as helpful as they can be and consistent but this Adam seemed clueless and useless.

Dimisani: Hopefully Gecko, if released, will look vibrant and better than in the Wrangler vehicle picture in the brochure. Most of the colors shown as stones in the brochure look somewhat different than the already released colors (Dozer and Crush) that we have seen in the metal so Gecko may be better or worse than those stone colors. If you do go with XTerra you mentioned the color they call "Metallic Blue". I saw a new XTerra in a parking lot with a super cool and vibrant green that Nissan's site calls "Metallic Green". As on the Jeep internet site, the green looks crummy but in the metal its a knockout. I'd get my Rubicon this moment if they offered that color. Check it out and good luck.

Gecko Rubicon

This is gonna be the longest time I was obsessed with expensive item. Hopefully Gecko will come out and I get my JKUR. Otherwise it will be XTerra in Blue. Hopefully Chrysler won't screw it up and collect my $33K. But it seems idiocy rules up there - I can't believe where this marketing strategy came from!

Boy, that's interesting. I've been in touch with several people at the Jeep number over the last several weeks, tracking my JKU Crush build. A few days ago my status changed to shipped, Adam told me he couldn't track my car once it was on the railroad. I knew that wasn't true, so I called back 10 minutes later and spoke with someone else. She gave me a lot more information right away, and apologized for Adam. I ratted him out too. With that one exception, I've been very pleased with the Jeep staff's attitude and helpfulness. My advice: If you call and get Adam, hang up and call right back.

pat@fieldsauto.com I haven't seen Gecko, I did get a prespec call of duty. I'm still waiting for a response from my contact. I too am waiting to see gecko before I buy one. If I don't like the gecko then I'll order a black one.

Since you have seen Gecko, is it a dull flat color or shiny and vibrant and do you like it? I would prefer Detonator Yellow or the new Stinger Yellow in the new Challenger and Charger special editions.

This is very frustrating!

Pat, can you verify this? And possibly would Stinger Yellow become available instead?

NFRs2000NYC I think the saddle/black interior is the most "luxury" looking. People always drop jaws when looking at my Sahara, in disbelief that a Wrangler can have such a nice interior. It's still just as capable offroad, just that I can get there in style too.

Thanks for the update and please keep us posted. My wife and I have been waiting for Gecko but we may just do Crush instead.

Cosmic Charlie There are a lot of things missing on the jeep.com site. In the Build Your Own, there is no longer a selection for a hard top or a body color hard top. Not sure what's going on over there...

i2canoe Gecko is missing now on the Jeep.com site but still offered on Jeep.ca.
Strange.
Nice colour for sure.
