|jimmyzwheelz||^^^ Well there you go! If you have your heart set on tan, then just bite the bullet and make a trip to get it! I've done that in the past and made a mini vacation out of it. Go pick up the vehicle and enjoy driving it home, sightseeing along the way.|

that deep water blue? I don't see very many of em, but I always assumed it was just unpopular I actually told the dealer I didn't care what color it was as long as he got me a right hander... guess I'm lucky

|Jakob101st||Not sure. It's not clear to me what information is released and when. I read a few posts that lead me to think that we may see a list of colors but not photos of the colors on an actual Jeep. So if the color is "Slate Blue or Dune" you just order it and hope they don't make a mess of it. Seems a bit risky.|

|Jakob101st||Would love to see a real green come back for 2013. Being prior service I have a liking to anything that I can make look like a military vehicle. Looking forward to buying some neoprene seat covers and G.E.A.R.|

Love some of the fox body 2 tone colors, like the bright blue / gray lower

I was really into the idea of the tan until I saw it on the lot.
As it is the wife and I fell in love with the Natural Green when we saw it.
It's very close to a beloved emerald green '91 Mustang she bought when we were first dating.
I'm glad we got it while we could. It's another done color.

Update: Well the guy picked up my Harley today so I'm officially without my truck and bike. I've decided to wait and order a 2013 in June instead of settling on colors and options. Looking forward to a Rubi. I hope it's worth the sacrifices. I've given up every single hobby and money hole I have in order to afford this.
Driving my daughters '95 VW Cabrio (she just got her written permit) until it arrives. At least it's a convertible, makes waiting for the Jeep a bit easier.
I'm planning to do some reviews of upgrades and such on YouTube in case anyone cares. I've found detailed reviews and videos on various bumpers, racks and such to be very valuable so I hope to give something back. I'll try to educated myself as much as possible until then.

Roger that. Just picked one up. 09, Deep Water Blue. Missus saw it and wanted it, BAD.
|04-05-2012 09:48 PM|
There seems to be a lot of false hits on Autotrader and Cars.com. I too want Sahara Tan. I can't find any '12 Unlimiteds with auto and a hard top. I have a '10 and wanted the new Pentastar engine, but now I am holding out hope the color will return with a diesel option!
I wrote Jeep and asked them to bring back Sahara Tan, so we'll see I guess. I will keep my fingers crossed with you!

|snikt||Oh, whoops. On the ones I searched through the country though I did select 2012, didn't realize there was still new 2011s on the lots|
|04-04-2012 01:41 PM|
The first one is a 2011 and and not an Unlimited, I'm looking for 2012. But thanks. I find them on the web but when I call the dealer they are sold. There are 2 in New Orleans also and another in St. Louis, all three are sold but they keep them posted.
I have 3 local dealers looking for me also. I can find the Winter Chills but it's $1,000 plus to ship it or I'll have to take a 12 to 18 hour road trip, not that it's bad but the with the 2013s looming I may just suck it up.
Funny, I'm waiting to hear back on a Winter Chill from that same Boulder Dealership.

Looks like there is 14 Wrangler Tans in the US
14 New Jeep Wranglers within 100000 Miles of 80120
and 9 Unlimited Tans
9 New Jeep Wrangler Unlimiteds within 100000 Miles of 80120
You might have to drive or have one shipped, but they are still out there

Yep I was right, 32 miles away
Sahara Tan Sport
2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport For Sale | Boulder CO .

Can't imagine it would be hard to find? Cosmos Blue ordering ended 10/7 but I bought one like 2-3 weeks ago 10 miles away. There was another one like 15-20 miles away also.
The Tan ended ordering 7/20, it's older but I would think if I found 2 within 15 miles maybe you can find 1 or 2 within 100-200 miles?

Update: Missed a Sahara Tan Unlimited Sahara by 1 day. What really stinks is that it was only 2 hours away.
Then missed another in VA by two days. So I went to look for winter chill and my preferred options. Found a few that were close and have one on the hook still but with it being so close to the 2013 order date I may just tough it out.
I've sold my truck and Harley in preparation of getting a jeep so it may be a LOOOONG summer for me while I wait out the deadlines.
Now I'm thinking that without the truck and harley payments, upkeep, gas and insurance I can sock away enough money to afford an Unlimited Rubi with all the options I want and just be done with the searching and settling. My only risk is that they will only offer the basic colors next year. And of course there is the waiting.
From what I can gather:
btw2: it's also been painfully obvious after dealing with several dealers in my state that salesmen are ill informed about their own products. They often contact me saying things like "we can order Winter Chill" or "if you are towing you want the standard 3.21 axle ratio". It's really crazy. Had one Sales Manager tell me it's been great working with me because they've learned so much about their product, lol.

|Jakob101st||Well I feel like a dope. I searched autotrader and came up with nothing only 6 days ago. I must have not done my search criteria correctly. Thanks positrak. I'll let you know how it goes.|

Takes under 90 seconds to search, less time than to contact your dealer
Find Your Car: New Jeep Wrangler Listings Near Young America, MN 55555 - AutoTrader.com
I plugged in any zip code, any distance from it, 38 brand new 2012 Tan Wranglers. Plug in your zip code, do an advance search which includes the options, and research. Be aware re-doing the search resets the model year. Reading some of the ads, from the dealers, they're desperate to sell. Cut a quick deal, you'll have it in a week where ever you find one.

|neekidoodle||I ordered my 12 this Feb and it just came in last week, I had a choice of winter chill and the Sahara tan, but went with silver. The tan is a terrible color, winter chill is not bad.|
|03-23-2012 03:14 PM|
|cmg427||You wont have to wait until winter to get a 13'. Im pretty sure I seen that they start taking order in June and we should see them on dealers lots probably in August just like the 12'. Wait to see whats being offered and then you can decide to either wait on the 13' or take your pick of the 12's that are still available.|

Wasn't Mango Tango also given a two year run? Might've been.

|craymond||Depending on what options you're looking for you should be able to find Winter Chill on dealer lots in mid April - early May.|

If you're a jeeper, then you've got a good sense of what can be done aftermarket. I'd focus on transmission, color (interior/exterior), doors (half/full), and power features (windows, AC, locks) first. Then top (hard color match/hard black/soft) and fenders (body color/black) second. Everything else--wheels, tires, gearing, limited slip differential, audio, navigation, towing, side steps, etc.--is pretty routinely modded after the fact.

MTH, fair advice and yes this is really a "1st world problem", lucky to have a job, be able to buy one in the first place kind of thing. Just thought this would be a safe place to vent silly issues.
Obviously the color isn't the only draw but paying 30K for a color I'm not happy with is silly. I grew up with CJ5s and CJ7s. I'm tied into jeeps for a million reasons.
It looks like I'll be looking for one on the lot and not worrying about the options that I can do something with aftermarket which isn't anything that bad.
Oh and I did join TL.
