They have already stopped taking orders for it. Going to be a rare color.

I ordered mine after deciding against Dune. I had not seen Rugged Brown in person but liked the pictures of the Dodge trucks wearing the color. I have had it for a month and I really like it. Its almost black except in sunlight. Even when driving it during the day you could easily believe the hood is black. The soft top and half doors along with the fender flares are black so those help show the brown. I am in the process of changing out the stock bumpers for JCR's. I replaced my black TJ with this one so it was a subtle change.

I have seen one in Northern NJ. I thought it was black at first, then the sun hit it. It looked good--IMO

Look at the web site for Koons Jeep in MD/VA. Just type in Koons Jeep. They have pics of a rugged brown in stock, and more on the way

I saw a rugged brown at the dealership and it looked very nice.

I'll be only hesitation with the color is that I've never purchased a brown vehicle before and I'd worry about the resale value. For some, they'll have a jeep forever. I'll probably only have it for 2-3 years, so resale is important to me. I'm not one to "buy" into the rarity of color, special edition models, etc selling for one cares when the time comes to sell it...just my opinion :) :hide:

The return of the 1970s...

Needs to have the Levi Denim faux interior as well... Anyone remember those?

Maybe they will come out with a model that rips the rear pocket of our jeans off like the CJ-5 always did.
