What color SHOULD Jeep offer?

I've seen a lot of threads asking which color to get. I thought it would be fun to post up what colors the Wrangler doesn't come in, but you think it should.

I would love to see a dark gray color, I think it would look great on a Jeep. Something like the Night Armor color on Xterras:

They used to offer a dark grey called Steel Blue on the JK.



They need to bring back a dark blue like the previous Deep Water Blue.

in the right light (usually at dusk) cosmo blue looks pretty sweet and "un-smurfish.'

2011 Cosmo blue Unlimited Sport- stock for now.

i think steel blue is more blue than grey... and personally i never liked it.

as far as grey, they had the Dark Charcoal color in 2010.

Dark Charcoal




I think they need to bring out the Dark Khaki they had on the Grand Cherokee and Liberty. It's a great color that looks different in different light..

here's a couple shots my wife's old Liberty in Dark Khaki.

They must not have sold many of those Dark Charcoal Wranglers. I've never seen one or even knew they existed! I do like the color of your Liberty as well. Thanks for posting the pics!

It was a very limited run of it in late 2009. Here's a lifted unlimited in that color.

That one in the for sale section, I think it's the first one I've seen.

I'd like to see OD Green, i know there was a gloss version of this a while back but it's wasn't offered in 2011 or I would have had it.
I would also like to see the dark blue from the earlier model years I think 2010.
Finally I'd add a charcoal grey like on the Ram trucks.

Funny I was thinking OD Green too.

We have the Jeep Green Metallic and the Sahara Tan turned out to be a great color. OD would hint at the Jeep legacy as well.

Never start a sentence with "Ill probably get flamed for this".

I like the quirky colors. Probably wouldn't be a bad option. Not necessarily my thing but a lot of those weird 70's Mopar muscle car colors seem to do well on a Jeep.
