FWIW Billet got locked out at the same time Gecko became available. Meanwhile 2 weeks later both my dealer and even JeepCares thought it was still available, but it was in fact already gone. It amazes me that these things aren’t even communicated internally. I ended up having to order my 4xe Rubicon in a different color.

So it looks like Gecko has taken over Billet’s spot on the production line. Who knows what will happen next. Jeep colors are impossible to predict.

Just tried to order a Billet Silver and was told that was no longer an option and had to choose a second color.

Wonder what it will be replaced with
Same issue here. My dealer informed that my order is canceled after few days as the color is discontinued for 2021-2022. Such beautiful and basic color can’t believe what’s wrong with Jeep .

They didn’t put the efforts to take off their site. Shame !!

I ordered my Billet Silver JLR 11 weeks ago. They say it has been built, but has been stuck in inspection for over a month. Now that Billet Silver has been discontinued, I am starting to freak out a bit...

I think that might literally have been the last day. What's your order status?

The week before, the order system was already rejecting Billet. We waited until the next week and my dealer was able to put in a pending Billet order on 4/28. Went to finalize the order that following Monday and it was already too late. System was rejecting it and that was it. Hydro for me.

Billet Silver was not a color I was looking for when I bought my Jeep. I was really leaning toward White or StingGray. Now that I have it very happy with it. It looks great in the bright sun and tends to hide the dirt. Im really surprised its no longer available.

I love my Billet Silver Recon. It looks clean for a long time, hides pin striping well, and looks great with the black and red contrasting colors. I notice dirt on the black hood decal long before I do on the paint. Around here, I see a lot of black, dark blue, and white Jeeps. Very few silver, so it stands out in a crowd as well. I would not mind Jeep not offering it for a while (until I am ready to get my next one).

Per comments from Mark Allen, the replacement color is Earl Grey. It's the color they used on the Gladiator Far Out concept vehicle.
