Color help,,,Crush vs Bright White

Ok im about to order a 2012 JKU and have made the decision on getting a sport but we're down to 2 color choices, Orange Crush and Bright White.Now i am 46 years old and have no problem with the crush right now,,my kids who are 14 and 12 absolutely love it because its there schools colors.My only concearn with the Crush is it would get old after awhile.On the other hand ive always liked white and out of the standard fleet colors,black ,white,red,and silver,,,,white is by far my favorite.

So do i go with the Crush with a chance of it growing old in the future or do i go more conservative and order the bright white??

Thanks for your responses.

Crush. You'll like it more down the road because if Jeep keeps up the current trend, it'll be discontinued within a year.

Go with the Crush! I feel that Jeeps are one of the few vehicles that can pull of bright bold colors. Every vehicle comes in white, Not many come in bright orange! My favorite Jeep colors are Crush, Detonator Yellow, Sunburst Orange and Mango Tango. Until now I never realized that all of my favorite colors were orange/yellow. Sahara Tan is also high on my list though.

Put another way, there are hundreds of thousands of Jeeps, and you will see other Jeeps every time you drive it. How often do you want to see one that looks just like yours? For me it is important to be unique, even if every Jeep owner puts the same mods on haha.

Where are you located? My local dealer had a Crush unlimited but I just checked and they must have sold it. They have another one coming in though..Hardtop and Auto.

WOW Crush is almost pitching a shutout thus far.I realize that Crush will be a limited run and perhaps more desireable in the future but i normally hold onto my vehicles until i run them into the ground.

I will be ordering it with auto,limited slip,dual tops,infinity sound system,connectivity group,max tow package,possibly leather but still up in the air with that.

I have a '12 silver. I love the look of Crush but White looks good with black mods to it. Good luck choosing!

I'd say Crush. I ended up with an 11 Sahara Tan and love it because it's not so common. Of course, it's not as flashy as Crush, but that'd be high on my list as well, but only if it was not all color-matched. Black top at a minimum.

I go with white or silver with any vehicle that is going to go offroad. Hides the scratches to the clearcoat alot better and so much easier to buffout when you get around to it.

Plus in the heat... cant beat a white vehicle.

Is White even really a colour?

Crush is a really great colour!
Two months of loving it and yet to see any other.
BUT remember - any colour - it is a JEEP.
Like the United Colours of Benetton - They are all beautiful.

Oh ya - Is White even really a colour?
It depends upon whom you ask. Scientists consider black to be the absence of light (and colour if you like) and white to be the presence of all colors. Fine artists, on the other hand, believe the complete reverse: white is the absence of color.
