That's your opinion. As I have said before, I love my dune colored jeep
I just saw my first Dune in person the other day, a different colour for sure, but I thought it was pretty cool! People can say what the want about Dune or Commando but I've never seen another vehicle that same colour, and they both grow on me every time I see them!
As far as colour, I am currently driving an 08 JKU white with black top. I like the combination, the jeep looks cleaner longer, even with mud all over it. However I just purchased 13 JKUR 10 Anniversary in Anvil. I won't be getting my new ride until the end of June, but from all the pictures the colour looks great to me! I have a question that someone myself able to answer. I heard that when they designed the anniversary edition, they were looking for a colour that would only be used on this model. The engineers were all trying to decide what colour to use. One of the engineers picked up the old bluish grey garbage can in the room and said that's it. That's the colour we will use. Does anyone know if this story is true? Has anyone else heard this story? Oh and for my American friends please ignore my spelling of the word colour, just replace it with color.
I looked at a 10th anniversary anvil color JK yesterday. From pics the color ranged from looking good to a battleship gray. In person it actually looks ok although I prefer more contrast with black fenders and top.
New Jeep: 10th Anniversary Rubicon, Anvil with Red Leather seats
Wife has a Gecko JKU because she likes the attention. I went with white because I couldn't find a Crush or a Dozer from a dealer willing to deal. Few in my AO want Dune and according to the dealer, they are slow sellers. Commando would be fine as a matte color, but it looks incorrect as a gloss finish. The dealer said it isn't selling well either. I saw a rugged brown JKU and it looks as if it is a UPS delivery truck for rural locales.
Anyone spelling color with a 'u' has to provide Tim Horton's for the rest of us...

True Blue Pearl is one of those colors you have to see in person, not a picture on the internet. Just like the 10th anniversary Rubicon anvil grey, the perception of the color can change dramatically depending on the lighting the image is taken. There is a thread on here somewhere about it. If you mistake the Pearl for black after seeing it with your own two eyes it will just confirm that you are indeed color blind.
I ordered my Jeep at a really bad time, as far as colors go. I wanted Dozer or Crush and both weren't available at the time of my order. Then I tried Anvil - also not available. I called my dealer and asked him if Jeep made a blue color, having seen True Blue on a Rubicon they had on their lot. Nope. Ended up ordering Billet Silver - my 5th color choice.
so I got to thinking about the colors more, and had a bit of an epiphany (for me, anyways)
I think my issue with most of the new colors, along with the trend of all black wheels, means there is little if any contrast left to draw attention to the vehicle- especially with the darker colors.
I guess I'm showing my age, but I miss the contrasting differences of white or chrome wheels, white tops, and decals/striping kits along with different colored interior. seems like now all you get is body color, and black (top, interior, flares, wheels)
even if you're not a fan of the color combo's, at least they were more intersting visually than what it seems we are offered today
I see where you are going with this, but I have to admit I kinda like the earthier tones and the direction they are heading right now. I do like the contrast of my 08 JKU white/black. Can't wait to see my 13 JKUR in Anvil/black. I am thinking the contrast won't be as nice, but I love the anvil colour. Maybe just have to put some really big rubber to get more black contrast.
Though I have to say the biggest fans are bee's, wasp's and about anything that stings and has wings. It has become a rather serious issue out on the trails. As some members of our clubs are allergic. I carry a supply of Benadryl and would like Chrysler to reimburse me the cost of this.
