Show us your Gecko
 
Since it looks like Geckos are starting to hit the forum (and some really spectacular ones as that), I thought it would be cool to post up our unique Jeeps in one thread.

So, show us your gecko :cool:

PS Hope to have my Rigid Dually's up on Saturday.

Cheers,

Just noticed your "GECKO" on the hood. I like it!

Once I have some better pictures of mine I will put them up.

Great idea, Bob. Here is mine. Not many mods ...just a bug deflector, for now. :)

Of all the special edition colors, I think I like the Gecko the best. I have an OR Fab tire carrier and their logo is a Gecko. Does that count?:flipoff:

Where did you get that G E C K O decal? It adds a really nice touch! My Gecko factory order is getting delivered in two days! 2dr Sahara dual top!

I'm not sure if he got his here or not but you can have them make you one: pixeldecals.com


I've been thinking about getting a "wrangler" one for mine but am also considering something more custom.

Got my Gecko last Friday finally - after waiting a week for the AEV hood to get painted.. It was definitely worth the wait. :D

Thanks.. crazy enough - I didn't think those storage end caps on the bumper would come in handy but I've come to realize I was wrong.. I've got recovery gear in there, gloves and jumper cables. Less I've got to keep IN the Jeep. :D

Dang, can't wait to order mine.
That color is so freaken awesome!
Anyone want to buy a Harley Sportster so I can order my Gecko?

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it seems that Gecko is not coming back for 2013, and ordering of 2012s might be over. Only option remaining to find one on the lot.

Pixeldecals.com it was.

I did the special order and they contacted me back with some suggested changes and - voila - I really dig it. Next up I am working on replacing the gecko decal on the side with some custom artwork... basically a gecko crawling out of a javalina's skull. I gave pixeldecal a copy and asked their opinion -- turns out the resolution is too low, so I need to photoshop something up.

No mods yet (not much in plan). I just ordered some IPF 968 with windshield mounts and a MORE dead pedal. Other than that, I'm looking for ideas to equip my new gecko for a 5 week road trip to northwestern Canada.

Seen a gecko today, not sure about the near neon glow, we will see. Give it time to grow on me possibly. Congrats though on the new Jeeps peeps : )

Wow, looks great. If I can ever afford that -- hope you don't mind if I steal your idea.

So, I tried Reddington Pass and was looking for my next weekend outing. My daughter was in town from college, so we went up the back way to Mount Lemon from Oracle, AZ.

What a freaking blast. I still don't have my Tereflex BB, new shocks & springs, or JKS quicker discos on yet -- but didn't need them. With my tires I felt very capable. Didn't go into 4Lo, but still had a great time. I was in 4Hi in 1st gear for a long while.

Had it at a provincial park on our long weekend. Managed (just barely) to get the soft top on the day before.

It disappeared pretty easily with the colour of leaves. How unexpected. ;)

Glad I picked mine up when I did then. This is my 5th Jeep and even though the hubby's is a rubi I'm in love with my Gecko

Driving my Gecko home today, I discovered the color camouflages bug guts perfectly! Bonus! :)

richter 05-28-2012 09:34 PM
