What's unique to the 2012 JK?
 
How do you know it's a 2012 JK you're viewing? What's visibly unique about the 2012 that one can point to and say with confidence, "That's a 2012 Jeep JK"?

Are there some body colors/options that say "this is a 2012"? The major inside upgrade came in the 2011 model, is there anything particular about the 2012 interior that is unique?:whistling:

Deep cherry red and Cosmos blue were available on the '11. Visually there is no difference. The one thing that will definitely tell you that it's a 12 other than a few of the odd colors, is painted fenders on a Rubicon. :whistling:

Cosmos blue was available in 2011. Black forest green and deep cherry red--or nearly identical colors--were available previously as well.

Is the muffler is different on the 2012? Different exhaust obviously.

Same looking exhaust as far as I can tell. I went from a 2010 to a 2012. Visually outside they look identical. The 3.6 sounds more like a 4 cylinder than a 6 when driving.

On the Jk though?

Well, I guess that's visible once you open the hood, or if it leaves a 2007-11 JK in the "visible dust"?:dance:

So that's a new parameter...they sound differently?:whistling:

I'm not saying it's a parameter. It's an observation going from the 3.8 to the 3.6.

Hero!!

I asked if colors like BFG were used
in the past on a JK. That was my point. Maybe BFG was used on a TJ and not on a JK. Safe to say "unique" for the 12

Understand?


Edit... Merry Christmas :D

look at the radiator . the 2012 have two grill that overlaps

daggo66 12-25-2011 12:01 PM

yeah, that was clear as mud. BFG was not a previous JK color and is unique to the 12 (so far).

Only automatics have the tranny cooler.

What's that dark green we've seen in past years though? Looks just like BFG in pics. Jeff has one . . .

daggo66 12-25-2011 12:22 PM

Natural Green Pearl. BFG is almost black.

JIMBOX 12-25-2011 12:24 PM

:whistling:-HUH !

I thought that BFG always had kind of a "RUBBER" color !:rofl:

Clear over their shoetops, I didn't know they hada cow

When did COD MW3 and Arctic chill come out?

daggo66 12-25-2011 12:32 PM

They are 2012 special editions.

They really should have put a Pentastar emblem on the jeep. The engine is worth bragging about, kinda like the old hot rod days everyone wanted the displacement shown on the fenders:punk:
