What the DMV thinks of your JK's colour
 
I was going over my paperwork and looked at my Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (MARMV) vehicle registration form.

Frankly I hadn't looked at the registration since taking delivery on Aug 4th. I just assumed it was all ok.:rolleyes: Well:

It seems that the Massachusetts RMV has an "issue" describing my 2011 JK Sport "S".:doh:

The love of my life is Sahara Tan, but to MA DMV it is listed as being BROWN :facepalm:!!!!!!!!:rofl::whistling::rofl:.

THIS got me to thinking how would MA RMV describe YOUR JK?
DOZER
MANGO TANGO
CRUSH
What descriptions would they come up with here I wonder?:popcorn:

Check out my BROWN JK in the attached pic!

sneck 11-08-2011 06:20 AM

the dmv listed my color as "we hate you" :-(

also, someone scribbled "orange" on the sheet

kjeeper10 11-08-2011 06:41 AM

Ya, they use generic colors.

My silver Tj was listed as grey.

I'm gonna guess they can't mess up "black" lol

Overtrained 11-08-2011 08:17 AM

Brown isn't even close haha:facepalm:

kbwwolf 11-08-2011 09:42 AM

My '03 Liberty, which is green, has always been listed as tan. Shoulda done a few bank jobs with it, in hindsight. :D

Now I'm in the same boat as kjeeper. Black.

I dont know what the actual name of the color for my jeep is. Dark Green id call it. They would just label mine Green. LOL

scooby2003 11-08-2011 10:27 AM

I'm guessing they'll just call my crush, orange.....guess I should go register it.

Ah... Someone there at the DMV used to work in retail and hates the marketers for using names for colors that make absolutely no sense. I was unhappy to read in road test reports from the 60s-70s and see that such dumb names had already been used for colors by that time.

kjeeper10 11-08-2011 10:44 AM

Red rock = burgundy :facepalm:

keod 11-08-2011 07:54 PM

LOL. Mine is black so no issue with color but motor vehicles in Alberta describes JK 2 doors as a "station wagons" - go figure. I could never refer to my Jeep as a station wagon.........

Raziel 11-08-2011 09:22 PM

I need to check what they put for mine. I have the Natural Green Pearl. I would lmfao if they couldn't get the colour!

Station wagon? Last station wagon I saw was in the movie Used Cars, when the family drives off the lot, hits a big hole, and the tailgate falls off and dumps a buncha the family's kids into the street...

jkaufman_95 11-08-2011 09:25 PM

They asked me what color mine was I said "silverstone grey metallic" he goes. Uh that's to long... So I said fine. Silver.

You could have sadi to him "ok Grey!" :rofl::rofl:

You just gotta love the Station Wagon! They could have used the old British "Shooting Break" as that what they called them -----back then:angel::rofl:

roxbury29 11-08-2011 11:03 PM

They listed my JKU, Deep Cherry Red as Burgundy - Truck -, with a 7000 truck plate

greenjeepgurl87 11-08-2011 11:08 PM

If it makes you feel better I had.to go to dmv and get mine corrected. It said white... my jeep, is.def not white.

greenjeepgurl87 11-08-2011 11:11 PM

Now it just says green doesnt feel the same.

jkaufman_95 11-08-2011 11:15 PM

All thats for is for leo's to positively id the vehicle, and green is enough to id it in that respect.

Yozho 11-08-2011 11:49 PM

Florida DMV lists my Rescue Green JKU as being RED.

They listed my Deep Cherry Red as just red. I would have loved to at least get burgundy. :thumb:

HowardJ 12-13-2011 05:55 PM

Wisconsin DMV registered my Rescue Green as "Light Green"
I registered it in my state after purchase (Indiana) and the ladies at the DMV looked confused because they saw it sitting out in the parking lot.

.. More like a Goose Shit Green not Light Green :p

ndrugby 12-13-2011 06:17 PM

They didn't list a colour for my Jeep, but they did list the color as Green :whistling: :angel:

jeffk42 12-13-2011 06:22 PM
