It looks like I'm picking up a Bikini colored Wrangler on Saturday. The color is CRAZY... I just can't decide if it's crazy cool or crazy "out there". Those of you that have lived with a Bikini Wrangler... any second guesses or regrets? Would you buy the same color if given a second chance? I'm curious. Here's a good representation of it:

Cant answer the question, but the feeling you have now scared me off.

I wanted a somewhat crazy color because Wranglers are kinda crazy compared to all else.

I got yellow. Still wild compared to the amount of Grey, black, and white cars, but feels kinda normal for a Wrangler.

Just make sure you are happy. Nobody has to look at it more than you. You can see that paint color from the driver seat in a dozen locations.

Jeeps lots of jeeps
I haven't owned a bikini jeep but have owned a few fun colored jeeps: Firecracker Red, Hyper Green, Punk'n, Hellayella etc. I think a wrangler is a vehicle which the fun colors work. It is sort of a toy vehicle. If you like it, go for it.

Personally I’m not a big fan of the color but, with that said it does pop if done right. Key is.... if it’s yours and you like it, does it matter what others think?!?! I think it is one of those colors that’s has a different tint based on the light hitting it.

This. It pops and is incredible if done right and/or is on the right stock trim. I didn’t love it in photos but in person it’s great and leaves a lasting impression. Really complex, fun color which the Jeep as a vehicle pulls off well.

I have a white JLR, so can’t speak from ownership but if I had come across one on the lot it was on the list.

I have the bikini Rubi and I love it, every time I walk away from it I have to take a second look before I walk away. I get compliments every where I go. Its a personal preference, you gotta know what you like and what fits your personality. Good luck with your decision

My wife fell in love with the bikini pearl and had to have it. Still loves the color. That said, we also have a 2008 Vette that is Atomic Orange!

Think Challengers and Chargers can pull it off as well

Ooo very nice :like:

All the pics in this thread have different lighting which makes it look different in each pic. Very cool colour.

thank you. I don’t think any of the pics do Bikini justice. It looks completely different depending on the light.
