    Admin Update August 6:

    If the first photo by J&L'sJLU (see below) wasn't enough, we can now confirm that the MOAB JL Wrangler is indeed coming and already being produced! The Toledo Assembly Plant is already rolling out the MOAB JL as we speak. The previous details seen on the silver MOAB JL are consistent with what's seen here. There are no rock rails fitted yet, but we can now see that it wears the same vented hood as the JL Rubicon.

    Original post July 30:

    MOAB edition ??? (Admin note - This matches the MOAB decal found in FCA parts catalogue last year)

    The color was silver. And here's what stands out: steel bumpers, BFG Mud Terrain KM2s, performance rock rails, black tow hooks, silver grill w/ black inserts, gray Jeep logo, black wheels.

    Spotted in Auburn Hills, MI about 10 miles from FCA Headquarters. It was on a delivery hauler with a couple of Rubi's and couple of sports. It was left on the hauler after the others were unloaded and was taken away.

    Yes, amazing find. Looks like they stripped off the red decal and badge accents, so I wonder if the dash is grey as well. We all know how the love grey currently.

    Jeep should come out with "50 shades of Gray". It's essentially what they are going now. Why not add some porn with it!

    Good grief!

    Maybe it's the MOAG addition. Mother of all grey.

    Why does everyone bitch about gray? There’s two grays not 50.

    They also have blue, red, green, orange and yellow. That’s almost the entire spectrum.

    You must not get it man but you did ask.

    They currently have 3 colors of gray:

    Billet Silver Metallic
    Sting-Gray
    Granite Crystal Metallic

    This, I am sure will be MOAB gray.

    For special editions, I think alot of us expect something a little more than just a shade of gray.

    What makes this one different than the Rubicon? The hood sticker?

    Not sure it's bitching so much, but 3 shades of grey out of 9 colors is quite a large % that could have been Gobi or olive drab or another popular color people love.

    There goes my Idea. If It was delivered to a known dealership, Could have pulled the window sticker for it.

    This looks a bit green\anvil colored on my screen. Still find it troubling we are about to hit August and FCA hasn't released anything official regarding the 2019's.
