I am going to the dealership tomorrow and will be placing my order VERY SOON. The last decision I am trying to make is between Gecko, Commando and Dozer. I cant make my mind up.

I wanted the Commando to be darker, like the rescue green. I like the color, but was disappointed it wasnt what I had expected/hoped. Gecko is a fun color, but I'm afraid its "playful" color will take away from how tough I want it to look when its all built. Dozer is great but I'm afraid I'll be holding it to a standard, and piggy bank, that it wont be able to keep up with<ahem WOL>!

WHAT SHOULD I DO!!! My gut is saying screw those pics and go commando! That mentality sure as hell worked well for me in college!:bleh:

AHHH Commando is really making its mark on me...especially since I havent seen one with any mods yet!

I say go commando! Hahahaha

But in all seriousness I think it'll be a good decision that will catch on and grow on you. I personally like the color and had the same feeling when I bought my rescue green JK. Now it's my all time favorite, besides the original military green of course.

All colors look good once the jeep is built up.

You know that is the same thing I thought when I bought my jeep but in reality once I bought it and started building it up I realized that it looks way tough! Then I went and called it Orangegasmic haha. On a serious note I love the gecko green color and think it would be very bad ass when built up! :)

Who has multiple? Pretty sure that Chris, like me, is replacing his current antiquated rig with a new one.

Commando!! Mark Allen just said in a recent interview Jeep finally figured out how to make production vehicles in flat finish, that will not scratch or show fingerprints. They were talking about making a true OD military green for productions

I really don't know what the color options are other than the three you have listed. I saw a bone stock, steel wheels, soft top, Gecko, and it was a little too playful like you mentioned, actually looked kind of wimpy. However, after seeing Dave Roberts' (here on the forum) Gecko JK during this past JKX, I think he nailed his build down! The combination of contrasting black Poison Spyder bumpers, sliders, fenders, ATX wheels and beadlock rings, all sitting on those massive 40" Mud Grapplers make that thing more of a SEMA show vehicle than "playful". That green needs to be on a vehicle that will be nicley modded. I think with your plans for suspension, axles and tires no matter what color you decide upon its probably going to be pretty badass looking.

I'm with you. Just got my JK a few months ago and still strapped from down payment and the monthlies. These things are not cheap. Hey anyone, I'm looking for a sponsor who wants to build up my jeep!!! ha ha. No, but seriously..... I'd take sponsors or donations. :clap2:

As for the color question. I'd go commando and get your build done quickly so you can be one of the first to post modded pics. Then you'll set the standard! Looks like Gecko has already been done (nice build for the JKX rig). Be different!!:thumb:

Im guessing this will be a special edition or something very expensive and unique. My heart wants this in a production vehicle, but my mind, and history, is telling me they will never do it.

IU like where your heads at!

I personally like the green that almost looks black, I'm not sure the "color" but it is HOT!
From a jeep/girls point of view! Nothing makes u look twice like trying to figure out exactly what color the jeep really is!!!
Nice lift and big wheels are also in notice.

You must be refering to(if I had to guess :thinking: ) is the 2011 Natural Green Pearl Wrangler. It was pretty dark and in low lighting could be mistaken for black. The 2010 jeep had rescue green, which was really good color, but wasnt THAT dark.

The Gecko is really cool looking, but any color looks good on a JEEP:cool: Good luck picking your jeep color. I am still waiting to find what they are going to do with my jeep!:thinking:

Well, I stopped by the local dealership today and they had 2 commando colored rubi's on the lot. Got to say, they looked pretty nice in person. The sales guy was all over me about trading my 07 in. I said sure if you want to give me an extra $10k for the upgrades I've done....then he got real quiet :idontknow:

Yeah, I'll be he did get real quiet! I'd like to see the Commando Green in person, because it looks like more of a diarrhea-brown over the net. The Dozer looked horrible online too, but I liked it in person. Unfortunately, I thought the Dozer was just too much of a good thing on an Unlimited, which I'd already set my mind on.

I thought 2012 was a bad year for Jeep colors, but I'm really not feeling any better about the 2013s. I do like the True Blue and I'd like to see the Natural Green. I went with Bright Silver Metallic when I got my 2012 in May.

Saw this one today at the dealer I was shocked it does look better in person! I saw the new Silver I like it better than the old one but its not my kinda color it has a light tint of purple or blue in it in person.

I vote Commando... It's a pleasant surprise in person, especially how it changes depending on what kind of light it's in....
