Really odd picture request

Go ahead, laugh... I know you want to.

When I went to buy a Jeep, I was looking for yellow, but decided against it when I saw the color in person. Found the Jeep I eventually bought on a lot that had a total of 4 colors in stock... black, white, red and my jeep (Red Rock)

My windows sticker says my new Jeep is Red Rock Crystal. But when I look at threads with the Sunburst orange Jeeps, that color is so close to mine, that I am starting to wonder if the wrong window sticker was on the Jeep. (VIN matches.. LOL )

Anyone got a picture of a Red Rock and a Sunburst Orange side by side?

I haven't seen any other Jeep this color (or either color) in my area so I have only online to compare them.

I was hoping someone had a real world shot of both colors side by side (a meet, a run, someone that has two jeeps etc)

In bright sunlight, it looks more orange that red... don't have a decent pic of that effect (and it has been raining for a freakin week here...)

Dang.. those half doors look hot... wish I had thought of that before I bought.


I just figured if they got something simple like the color wrong, what else might be off on the sticker?

Makes me feel better Heh....

No, I'm almost positive yours looks like red rock

They look close to the same, but you can see the difference. Red rock is dark maroonish and sunburst orange is a slightly tinted orangish.

Yours is not orange

You would know if it was sunburst orange. Not a hint of red in that color.

Being a new owner and not knowing anyone who owns a Jeep, place like this are the only places I can ask stupid questions

Could be your monitor. Depending on the age and model it may have some resolution/color issues. Do an on-line search for dealers that have some on hand and go compare, if its really bugging you. Colors on the net can be less than accurate.
