I love my Black Forest Green 2012 JKU Sport S. How many of you have friends or family that think your Jeep is Black? I get that all the time. But in certain light conditions you see that Green. And I love it!
I'll have to try the buffer & polish. Thanks for the tip.Except for rare instances like the setting sun, you couldn't tell mine was anything but black from January when I picked it up until around late May early June when we started getting towards the brighter summer sun. I also found that giving it a proper polish with my buffer and seal/wax really brought the green and the flake out more.
It's amazing how different lighting affects the color! I love that.Most of my friends an coworkers see it as a black Jeep and comments like "Oh, I think I see some green. Maybe."
But when I went out to Kamloops BC over the summer to visit family, my sister saw it mostly as a green jeep. But Kamloops is very sunny.
I do like catching people doing the double and triple takes trying to figure the colour out. Damned cool.
In July 2012 I only found a couple of Black Forest Green JKU Sports in SoCal. So I found this one in Huntington Beach. It was a gloomy day (It rained on the way home.) When I went down to buy mine I got to the dealership and they couldn't find it. They were looking for a green wrangler. I went in back with them and I found it. It even fooled them. lol
You guys do know that there is already a thread for this color...right?
Just kidding...of course
I never liked it on vehicles like the Honda Element, but for some reason the Jeep looks good with it. I think also when you realize the hard top is actually a textured flat paint and not just unfinished plastic it helps.Love mine.
Some do not like the painted fenders and hard top of the Sahara but plastic always struck me as cheap looking.
Yep, mfr's don't give normal mass produced vehicles a proper polish before they send them on their way, really only the super $$$$ hand built stuff gets that. The paint is pretty good from the factory, but polishing it was like that Claritin commercial where they take away the gray that you didn't notice and everything is all vibrant. Here's some pics from my polishing and sealing that I did.........I'll have to try the buffer & polish. Thanks for the tip.
