Hi just registered up with the forum been goin on for a bit and thanks to it did some great mods.. I noticed the 2013 green they called gecko is different on my 2017 and is called hyper green now.. My question is could I I still call this a gecko jeep even tho the color is not the same as the old green color offered.. Was looking to maybe put a gecko sticker on it..

Gecko green does not glow in the dark like the hyper green does. When I was a kid, my mom had a paint store mix up a pastel green to paint my room and it came out like hyper green. I called it puke green and had to live with it for years. I hated that color.

As jceffing said, it's your Jeep, do what makes you feel good. Don't worry about pleasing anyone else (except maybe your spouse).

Your Jeep, your name/theme.
If it makes someone in that rowdy gecko clan mad, get an even bigger decal and follow them around town!

LoL

rgreen65 --- Like many others, we like Hyper Green on Jeeps.

Had to laugh about your puke green bedroom "trauma."

Centuries ago, when I was a kid, the parents loved dressing me in bright red sweaters so I'd be easy to find in a crowd/public places. A practical parenting approach --- that gave me a life-long hate for red sweaters. I'm OK with red Jeeps (or any color) however. :happyyes:

Gecko lizards have the ability to change color, so who's to say if you have a Gecko or not? :)

Seems like everybody is pretty much on the same page we take our jeeps and make them our own and even tho my green is louder I like to think its in the gecko family of jeeps lol
