If I was ordering a 2023 it would be a hard choice between Reign and Earl. I like Reign because it does remind me of Plum Crazy and I'm coming from the Mopar Muscle world have owning multiple Challenger Scat Pack 392s and Chargers. It's definitely in your face. And probably won't come back for awhile.

But since it's a Jeep I lean more towards Earl. It's got more of that outdoorsy feel vibe. And it is new and unique. Also being a light grey with a hint of something in the paint it changes color depending on lighting. It's kind of polarizing. It would be a tough choice.
I blew the rear end on my CJ5 in the middle of nowhere East Central Utah. After a huge struggle I managed to get to a dirt road on the front axle. Had I not , the search crew would have easily spotted a bright Porsche Red Jeep, or purple, orange, yellow or any bright COLOR. Camouflage grays and greens there might be bones and a rusty hulk still undiscovered. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it 😊

I always feel color is a personal preference, you have to like one more than the other in the end when taking into consideration your overall plan (mods, etc.). For me it’s simple, if/when red is an option I check that box and never look back.

Yeah. That's actually so true. Bright colors can definitely save your ass in the middle of nowhere of you're stranded. The new Hi Velocity Yellow is the ultimate be seen color by a long shot. . 💛

Yup. That’s why this time I got Firecracker Red...after my 2015 JK in Tank green got stuck in 5-ft of snow and had to be recovered.

You can see my Sahara from outer space!

Sarge and Tan Interior. Blue is just too bright. Mine shows dust fairly bad. It is a shifty color. Brighter almost olive green in the sun and darker hunter green in the shade. I did color matched everything b/c I don’t like to deal with fading plastics.

Sarge is a great color. Hydro is not my favorite, well blue vehicles in general. A few have mentioned and if you haven't really looked in person, Firecracker is great. I didn't order mine, but if I did Sarge would probably be it.

This is what I have on order, but with soft top. Sharp looking, especially with Willys’ black accents. Would have gotten tan top though had it been available.

The Willys pictures I've seen with Sarge is making me reconsider a Sahara now. I just love that look.

Yeah. I definitely wanted the Willys and when I clicked on Sarge in the configurator, I never really seriously considered another color.

I debated between sting gray, sarge green and hydro blue, even considered the red. Went with black and I think I made the right choice. Blue and red are just too bold for me since I don’t want to get too much attention. Gray/black/green can look very cool and tactical, which I like.

Compare some pictures side by side on your computer screen, it may help rule out the less preferred color.

I didn’t read the replies, but I have few thoughts on your post:

1. I appreciate the concern about ‘showing dirt’ - I bought a civic in grey to help that - BUT, jeeps look good dirty. It’s basically their natural state. I do love to wash mine and see the original color come through, but I really don’t mine the trail badge of honor(even if sometimes it’s not actually from the trail). I can’t say the same for my WRX - jeeps are just different.

2. buy the color you know you really want. I had an orange JKUR, and had no problems unloading it - to then get a Punk’n JLR (also strongly considered Mojito). People (here, and everywhere) wil insist that your color is ‘too loud’, or ‘too boring’, but it’s not their ride. And if you ever decide to get rid of it, someone will want it.

3. the ‘right’ decision is the color matched hard top and black fenders, and I am not biased at all. And I am always right ( just don’t ask my wife. Or friends. Or boss)

So I'm getting ready to order a new Sahara soon... but I'm having a bit of color drama! I cannot decide, and my preferred colors are something I have never had in close a car. Previously every car I bought, it was the options, price and an okay color (almost always neutral gray tones, most I had different was a brown color). This is the first time I get to pick the color in my preferred option.​
So my color choices I want is either Sarge Green or Hydro Blue. What have other owners found for pros/cons of these colors specifically in relation to dust/dirt being more noticeable? Any other pros/cons I should think about in the decision (anecdotal thoughts ok - IE, one might be better resale than another)?​
I really want to stick to these specific colors, I either didnt care for the other colors that are available, or in the case of Reign (or Earl), I am too scared to buy a color without seeing it on a vehicle in person first lol (pics do look awesome though).​
Also of note I am not getting the colored match top, I like the idea of the contrast of black. I think its perfect balance on a Sahara with the fenders painted but the top black (go ahead and disagree, I know I'm right ;) ).​

You could offer us forum members free beer if we could agree on a brand and never have to buy a drop. So you are asking us What Color Is Best :whatsgoingon: :CWL::LOL::clap:🍻
