Gecko pearl

Has anyone got to order a gecko pearl jeep yet? It was supposed to be available feb 7th.

Thanks for your help.

And just to keep it technical, does the paint really have pearls in it?

Flame on!

It's listed as a pearl coat, so yes, it has pearls but no clams.

Seriously though I've seen a ton of activity around people ordering it. It is available for order, if you download the Wrangler ap you can customize to it on your ipad or iphone, otherwise there are a lot of pictures floating around of CGI.

I ordered on 2012-02-04. It may arrive as early as 2012-03-09 at the dealership.

Yes, it will have crushed pearls in it.

Everybody has their own opinions, and that's fine, but the Gecko is ridiculous to me. It's SO wild and crazy that it's hard to even believe it's a factory color. I predict that Jeep will sell far fewer of these than people think and you'll never see the color again after June.

That's what a lot of people said about Rescue Green...

I don't mind the Gecko Green....but holy hell I flipping hate the color matching hardtops on the new JK's makes them look like those stupid H3's!

Same here. I figure that color makes a lot of sense if you're dragging a Kawi-Green Ninja to the racetrack. Other than that? Not so much for me ... different stroke for different folks I guess.

Looks like they are trying to revert to some late 60's early 70's Mopar colors. Personally, I don't care for it on the Jeep

Just saw one on the lot today. Had really considered it when I was shopping but now, "No thank you!"

And that is from a guy who bought one in Orange Crush and loves it.

Curbs, seperating parallel parkers from the rest of us.
