Still contemplating on color for my new JKUW. Red has really grown on me. Many positive comments on Flame Red, but couldn't find many comments on Firecracker Red. Differences?

I've been planning a new JK since 2007 when I decided 2-dr was better for me than the Unlimited I purchased. I knew it would be red or yellow. Flame Red's ill timing (and the TJ I bought as a stop-gap) notwithstanding, Detonator Yellow wasn't quite the right shade for me. Rock Lobster looked pastel pink at some angles, Firecracker isn't for me, and the yellow I was looking for finally arrived. They made the decision easy for me. All this is to say that I preferred Flame Red over more recent variants, if you can still find one.

I'd love to see a side by side pic. If anyone knows if that exists on this forum and can point me in the right direction, it would be very much appreciated.

Very sharp Willy's TexanJK. I was able to see the difference in person at the dealership this morning. Firecracker Red is a little lighter, but also brighter in my opinion, which is what I'm looking for. I was also contemplating sunset orange, but after seeing it on the lot this morning, that is no longer an option. They also had a copper brown, actually didn't look too bad, nice color with the metallic in the paint. There is definitely no pearl in the sunset orange like the color states.

I've always loved red Jeeps. I tend to like it a bit deeper than what I have....Firecracker Red matches my foul weather gear!

Love it better than any other 2015 color choice, by far!

what i like about Flame Red is that it more resembles Fire Engine Red and still appears red in bright sun. Firecracker Red can sometimes look orange.

i went with Firecracker Red since it was the closest to Flame Red that Jeep offers.

Yeah. When the sun hits mine and if it's clean (yeah right) it's a real attention grabber. Bright bright

I like Flame red better. Firecracker red looks more orange to me.
I agree the Firecracker looks a little orange. My vote is for the Firecracker.

Firecracker read is an awesome color. Has a bit of an orange tint to the red. Soon as I saw it I bought it lol. However, its on the trading block waiting for my Hyper Green to arrive.
