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.

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:
  • Last day to order a 2012 is either 5/2/12 or 4/27/12 depending on the source.
  • 2013 prices will climb about $700 across the board. Options?
  • Orders open for 2013 on 6/6/12
  • Production for 2013 starts 7/23/12
  • Earliest pickup date for 2013 is 9/15/12
btw: the responses from wranglerforum.com are far and away better than the other two jeep/jk forums out there.

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 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.

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.

Jakob101st 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.

Hamidar05 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
Jakob101st 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.
04-04-2012 10:09 AM
snikt 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

snikt Yep I was right, 32 miles away

Sahara Tan Sport

snikt 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?

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.
03-23-2012 04:48 PM
positrak 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.

Indeed - Deep Water Blue Pearl - 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X 4x4 - Dark Slate Gray/Medium Slate Gray Interior | GTcarlot.com - Vehicle Archive #5511950

Wasn't Mango Tango also given a two year run? Might've been.
03-23-2012 12:56 PM
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.
03-23-2012 12:52 PM
ESP First wrangler I test drove was a 2010 rescue green. Really liked that color in hindsight.

There's no guarantee Sahara tan will even be offered next year. Mango tango, deep water blue, charcoal grey, rescue green, and other desirable colors have all only made brief one or two year appearances and are now gone without any word on whether they'll be offered again.

Those buyers who are "in the know" will scrupulously track when order dates for their preferred color will open and then order immediately. The forum ends up with whole threads dedicated to folks waiting to order and then waiting to receive their chosen color.

Unless you're among that group, you're better off being flexible on either color or options so you can more easily buy off the lot. Keep in mind you can add almost anything to a wrangler aftermarket, but you're probably not going to want to repaint it.

Now there's a plan that works. I think if you broaden it out to Sahara Tan and Winter Chill, you'll have a reasonable shot at getting something close to what you're looking for. More so if you can add perhaps one more color.

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.
