I'm about as indecisive as they come so this input helps a lot. Great way to be welcomed into the jeep world.

xcoaste I have Commando Green, and haven't tired of it yet. I was thinking I would go Billet just because it was a safe pick, but from just having a silver car I needed to see CG in person. Drove over 2 hours to check one out on a lot, ordered it that day.

OP sounds like he really likes Billet (I think it looks good too) & you can't order Crush anymore.

markwoodlief do they not make the 'Jeep Green' anymore? That was the best color IMO..

TooManyToys I was between Commando and Billet, then saw the Commando in person... went with Billet- hides dirt very well too.

Now for the actual questions...

Those of you who have a deep cherry JK how does the paint hold up over time? I've seen some used ones where the paint has faded to almost a more burgundy... Is this something I should worry about?

For the bright white jeepers out there, how do you like it. Is it as much of a pain to keep clean as it seems it would be? I don't mind it getting dirty every now and then, but I don't want my white jeep turning beige after only 10 miles of highway.....

For you Commandos, how do you like it? Still love the color after having it for a while? I'm worried that army green cool effect will wear off quite quickly....

And Billet, well Billet is just awesome so ya, any input is appreciated.

Thanks guys in advance for any help. First time jeep buying is kinda overwhelming. So much info, so many options...
Pretty much answered your own question. Billet.

RB-10rubicon i just saw a commando green in person yesterday and loved it . if i didnt have alot of money tied up i my 2010 i would consider trading it in
02-27-2013 05:09 AM
jp2611 FWIW my RED Jeep looks clean longer than our BLUE one or the White Chrysler 300...realize that you are not looking at Blu but it is a comparison thing....anyway those with "faded" paints IMO never got a little love...yeah its a Jeep but I wax mine to keep it looking good.

I don't think you can order Deep Cherry Red any longer either, which was my first pick. I ended up going Billet, with Commando Green coming in a very close second.

@Charcoal - Have you seen any of your favorite colors in person? While White and Billet are pretty standard, colors like Commando Green really need to be checked out in person.
02-27-2013 04:19 AM
David M If it were me personally at this point in the game, and I didn't want to wait months to order a 2014. I would most definitely wait a tad longer and choose Rugged Brown Pearl Coat, with a saddle interior. That is, if it comes to fruition for the '13s, which I believe it will.

Good Luck!

jadmt I have owned well over 20 cars and trucks and I gotta say my Bright White paint job on my 13 is as nice of a paint finish as I have seen. I will say Silver was my first choice but ended up going white. I think if billet had been available I might have had to flip a coin. No regrets tho with the white. White is easy to keep clean and hides dirt much better then darker colors. I swear the guys at work ask me how I keep it so clean.
