Where did all the Crush Rubicons go?

I cannot find a single Unlimited Rubicon in Crush Clear Coat with the following:

automatic transmission
dual top (black)
leather/heated interior (all black. no dark saddle)
power convenience
a/c with automatic temp control


Crazy! The wife wants me to trade in my Accord to get one finally and now the new ones are gone!! Oh well, I have contacted the dealers and am waiting for someone to trade theirs in now. The Grand Cherokee is nice but she was getting upset when I talked about modifying it. Works in my favor though!!!

Something about that orange...

Someone elses picture that I look at occasionally to keep me satisfied:

I was in love with Crush, too. It was my first color choice. Imagine my disappointment when I showed up at the end of March to my dealership to order one and they told me it had been discontinued.

My new Jeep is actually my fifth color choice. I gave the dealer this list:
  1. Crush
  2. Dozer
  3. Anvil
  4. True Blue
  5. Billet Silver

there is a new orange/yellow I thought. Someone here posted what was the new colors for 14, linked from Alpar. Looks like something in between dozer and crush.

Our Dozer 2d Rubi has had a lot of compliments. I seen the rock lobster for the first time, it could grow on me. The commando green is gone I heard.

I tried last October to get either of the oranges when I ordered my JKU but neither were available.

There is a new color that is more yellow than orange. And then there is the color they are grabbing from the Dodge lineup as well.

I contacted about 10 dealerships in the area (D.C.). I have had to tell each one of them that I cannot settle on this. I have to have my color (Orange is my favorite lol). I've settled for every car I've bought before but this time it's different. I'm willing to take a used one as long as it's in great shape and low miles. I don't care about the Nav units though. I have the 730N in my Grand Cherokee and it sucks.

From what the salesman told me at the stealership is that the Gecko and Crush colors were produced in limited run. Obviously they are a hot color, and are much harder to track down. I scooped the last Crush on Long Island afaik

Same here...though my top three included the discontinued-recontinued flame red.

I'm currently in the EXACT situation, but for me its a 2 door in gecko. A salesman and I have been looking for weeks for the specific color/options combo I want. It's very frustrating, but I'm not giving up yet!

This will probably drag out for a while. I kind of figured that before hand. At least I'm not in a rush for another vehicle as my accord is a champ right now. I've been there were I've had to get the "wrong" vehicle because due to pressure. That's how I ended up with the Accord in the first place. It's a great car, but it's not me. I need a truck and the Unlimiteds are bad ***!!

I'm up to about 30 different dealerships now... lol. Most of them are trying to be lazy and get me in a new one in a different color, but some of them are working with me. I have wanted a Wrangler my whole life and I can finally get one. I will not give up until I am driving my Unlimited Rubicon Crush Automatic with Leather.

Westbury, they had tried to sell me on black/silver/white. I stressed I didnt want a color just like every other one. I noticed it out of the corner of my eye walking through the lot. Of course the salesman was like "Oh thats an automatic, not what your looking for". Nope, Ill take this one
