Hello All JK and JKU fans,

I very seldom post on forums, but feel very compelled to ask all of you an important question!

I will be ordering a JKU very soon, and can't help but say something about the colors that are available to order and truly feel that there are colors missing that jeep truly needs to offer, especially since they just discontinued 2 colors (sahara tan and cosmos blue)

From reading this forum avidly, i know that many (seems like the majority) of you prefer the BRIGHT colors like Crush Orange, but I am one of those fuddy dud conservatives that like subtle colors.....

I think the following colors would be great sellers as well for JEEP! Maybe with any luck, someone from Fiat/Chrysler/Jeep will read this and add some colors!

CHARCOAL METALLIC
NAVY BLUE METALLIC
CHOCOLATE BROWN METALLIC OR NON-METALLIC

What do you guys vote for? and your thoughts on other colors?:)

Black.

Isn't charcoal...black? Though I'd CONSIDER a medium gray.

Did I mention I like black? :D

I was kinda sad that they discontinued Tan. I ended up with Crush and I'm happy with it but my original order was Tan. It was built wrong so I rejected it. Navy would be cool and I would have considered it. No interest at all in Choc. Brown...

I like the more muted colors as well. Bummed about Sahara Tan being gone.
I'll pass on chocolate brown, but would love a midnight blue or charcoal gray.

I had charcoal grey on my YJ, great color. I would like to see it come back.

I like white and silver. They hide stuff. Out of the colors you mention, Navy sounds enticing - I think it would be gorgeous. I wouldn't buy it for my usage, but I would drool over it.

I just picked up a Sahara in Black Forest Green and am having a lot of fun trying to convince people that it's not black, especially on cloudy days.

First few times I saw pics that people had posted of their BFG Jeeps I thought, Dude's color blind, but I'm not gonna point it out cuz I don't wanna wreck his Jeep pride...

My first Jeep was a '97 TJ that was Dark Blue with a Spice soft top. I think it was a great color combination and would have gone with that again if it was available when I bought my JK. Not sure about the brown but I think charcoal would be a pretty sharp looking color too.

My 2012 color choices in order:

Sahara tan

Black forest green

Dozer

Couldn't find sahara tan or black forest green. Purchased Dozer. I wanted the dark saddle interior and couldn't get that either.

They list all these different color options in the 2012 brochure and then they discontinue some of them. Weird. Makes it hard on the sales reps.

I sell Caterpillar heavy equipment and your color choice is:

Cat yellow OR Cat yellow.

Nice and easy.

Nope Charcoal isn't black in paint. It has a dark smoky look. Not sure why. But I have one of the few Charcoal color Jeeps made. They made the color for only two weeks in 2010. But in grey dark cloudy days or in the moonlight mine does look black

I think the new colors are mostly terrible.
Would like to have Tan back. Isn't anyone patriotic ?

Jeeps should be fun colors!
Purple
Lime Green
Smurf Blue
I think the brighter colors look better on the 2 doors.....or at least on 4 doors without painted tops and fenders.

I think a Gecko Sahara Unlimited with a painted top might be too much green for one person to handle looking at everyday for the next 6 or 7 years. :D
