Any Chance Jeep will bring back Mango Tango?
After having my jeep for two weeks my brother is already gearing up to purchase a Jeep. He LOVES mango tango but i guess that got discontinued during the 2012 MY period. He wanted me to ask you guys if there is a chance that jeep will bring back mango tango or a slightly different variation for the 2013 MY. he's not crazy about the 2013 color options and thinking he'll just go black if there isnt a chance that Mango will be back.

TIA :thumb:

Mango Tango went out in 2011, as di many colors. Chrysler's paint used pigments from Japan. The supply was severly disrupted because of the tsunami and radiation issues. We have no way of knowing iif there will be a similar color. I love Mango Tango and wish it had been available in 09. Don't hold your breath waiting for a come back.

Agree that mango was a great choice. I wish they'd bring back rescue green too.

There have been some truly awesome Jeep colors over the years. I hope they don't bring them back. I'll end up going broke trying to buy new Jeeps I don't need. lol

thanks guys :(

Every time he sees one on the road he drools over that color, but he wants the new engine so used is out of the question. I guess he'll do a black on black on black, not like that hasnt been done before :rolleyes:

Makes me love gecko even more cause i know this color will probably never come back :thumb:

Mango Tango
Had that color in a 2010 unlimited with Chrome package. A month later there had to be a dozen of them in our small town once they got a look at mine. Did a few mods, leveling kit, some 33" Cooper STT's, etc. Loved the looks but the lack of power and poor mileage with the auto made me think I made a poor choice. Ended up trading it a year later and got ALL my money back on a 2012 Dodge Ram Sport. Got the bug again and stumbled into a 2012 Freedom Edition Oscar Mike True Blue soft top six speed. Now I'm really in love. Order the same leveling kit from TeraFlex along with the same tires and this will be the Special JK that will be around for awhile. This is my toy since I got rid of the sports cars and cycles. It is a Jeep thing once you have one.

The Dark Charcoal pearl that was a very limited color is supposedly coming back in 2013 so you never know. It could
