I have a soft top. I really want black rims but my A/T tires get through a ton of ****. Went off-roading the past couple days in deep mud, sand and rocks. Did a great job! Really impressed with my machine.

I love bright colored Jeeps.

My wife wants a WK2 and I think their colors are boring.

Find someone that does powdercoating. I did my stock Jeep rims black and it holds up a heck Alot better than paint jobs or black rims..

The colors are cool; the engine...time will tell. I know for a fact, since I have an xj with 200k on the 4.0, and a tj with the 4.0, that these engines are burly. Never an issue. The pentastar does have more power, which is great, but longevity? I've already heard about some issues with the pentastar. This is why I bought a tj instead.

I just got back from miracle Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Gallatin tn, almost got a friend of mine into a crush orange sport, but they only wanted to give him 24,000 for his almost new ram.. Stickers at 37 and he's only driven it 7 thousand miles... Too bad. I drove one with 3 miles on it, crush, softop, manual. It was noticeably smoother driving and more ballsy than my 2010. Kinda want one.... Too bad

I LOVE the look of the black rims on the Crush JKs. I have them on my Deep Cherry and they look good there, as well. However, they seem to really make the orange POP that much more. Great looking JKU!!!

/agreed!

Seriously a good powdercoat can withstand some serious thrashing. You can also get custom with it.... Like if you have an Orange Crush colored jeep, get the wheels with a base coat of orange crush and the powder coated black with a crackle coat. It will make small veins of orange peek through the black powder coat and look really trick up close.

Do Wranglers really retain their value as much as the dealerships say they do? My last ones 25 years old so i wouldn't know lol. I wonder if I pay off about half my '10 jk if in a few years I could get into a brand new one For around the same payments

I love and miss Rescue Green and wanted a Gecko one (of course, I want a new Challenger in Sublime...but the new green isn't close enough for me) but the wife really wasn't sold on driving it daily with the Gecko. So, we settled on Crush and love it. I agree that the black wheels look fabulous on it. I just saw a Sport model in Crush with the steel wheels that the guy had painted black and put some bigger tires on. It looked fantastic!

This is all that you needed to post. The rest of the irrelevant information is exactly the reason why threads go sideways. Keep it relevant to the topic header.

They do hold their value the best in their class. Now, that being said, there isn't many vehicles that are in the same class. I think it's just between Toyota FJs and Honda CRVs...but we have 2010 Saharas priced the same as new sport unlimiteds...and I've seen good trade values on them coming in and that's the reason I went with a Jeep after seeing my previous trucks valued top to almost nothing.
