This is a forum for Jeeps/vehicles not Oprah or Dr. Phil.
Y'all need to put your big boy pants on and deal with the fact that the majority of the people out there haven't made this mistake but y'all did. Of the four vehicles I have owned (all Fords and this Jeep) all had the same color caps. This isn't new or flawed on Jeep's end. Never once even came close to doing this, ever.
It's safe to say we've all done something at some point in time that was dumb. Having said that, I'm pretty sure if I did what the OP did, I would have told myself that was a pretty dumb thing to do & left it at that.
Anyways, this could've been much worse. I don't think it's necessarily a design issue, but I could understand expecting them to be different.
And a good example of could've been worse: My father-in-law (who really is a ******* for more reasons than this) was "working" on their Audi. The car was only about 5 years old at the time. The mother-in-law was complaining about her car making this horrible noise, and the wheel being hard to turn. I asked him what he did, and he said all he did was top off the brake fluid. Well he put it in the power steering reservoir, because both were on the firewall with black caps. He never bothered to read the caps either, lol. I had to drain and flush the system 3 times before it was even usable. It still whined after that, but not very bad.
Needless to say, she asked me to look at her cars anytime they needed anything after that. If he even popped the hood to check the oil she cussed him out, lol.

If the OP ran it for a day, I would get entire system flushed ASAP
