ckelley3 Hoping LA Car show in Nov will have a Gecko/Crush on display

2012-Rubicon It's a good thing I didn't know about this color before I ordered my crush. But at the current rate of progression I could Probly order this color and still get it sooner than my crush.

ladyjane I agree that the Wranglers look good in the bright colors. I see other vehicles in the bright colors and think they look awful, but the bright colors just work on the Wranglers. I am glad it isn't everyone's cup of tea because I don't want a lot of other Crush Jeeps on the road near me!!

I think Gecko is going to look good. If I didn't like orange so much, I would go for Gecko.

Strictly my opinion, and I understand why so many like their neutral colors, I just am glad I have the ability not to choose one.

My 04 Rubicon is electric lime green and I call it skittles.A lot of people ask me if its a factory color. They like it and then say you dont see many of those.

trennmaschine I think I remember seeing an AMC Gremlin in that color...

Matt10JK The gecko on the 2012 brochure is a best guess photoshop. It originally appeared back in late 2006 in the 2007 JK brochure as a detonator yellow. Look at the rear facing photo, they photoshopped in the 2012 woofer panel but forgot the check strap.

Most images in those things are recycled and airbrushed photos, done by the marketing dept.

CrazyBull I so wanted the Gecko but my dealer and Pat F both told me it wouldn't be released for production until Jan 19th. I don't have that kind of patience. So..I went with the more "ahem" mature Pearl Deep Cherry. Now I have to draft my moose head silhouette to paint on the hood once I get the bugger. And <sigh> I found the coolest 6' long lizard decal to go on both sides if I had gotten it.. Hopes, dreams...broken concrete... <sniff>

YUP, our Majave is getting a facelift sometime soon, a friend of mine has a graffics shop and we are going neon green. It should look great!

See and there's the other side of the coin. Wranglers are one of the few vehicles that can pull these colors off--a Gecko Camry, anyone? I thought not. I'm still a bigger fan of the deep blue, black, dark red (red rock crystal), dark green (forest) type of colors, but that's JMO. I get the "skittles" choices too.

I don't know, it kind of looks like the same color as the Geico gecko.

Ahh that is because I am mistaken! It must be lime green or something. It's lighter than my natural green but darker than the pics of gecko I've seen.

My apologies. :o

InfernoGirl Notice how they show it with half doors? Like you ever see a new one on the lot with halfs.... :rolleys: Heck, our dealers never even have Rubi's on the lot... I do LOVE that color tho'

Zmob If I didn't need a vehicle now I definitely would have waited for gecko to come out. It just goes so well with all the black accents/interior.
