I still can’t believe they only had Reign on display at the auto show. Why would you torture us like this and keep it hidden away? lol
I know right? Why not send the Far south JT as well?

According to my dealer, my Earl Jeep is being painted, but it has been for almost 2 weeks now. Maybe there's an issue with that color/paint line? Just a theory.
There must be some sort of issue, because I've seen so few Earl jeeps around here begin production, which is kinda odd as the first Reign jeeps are having the keys dropped off now.

I took the image and ran it through black and white. You'll see the airbrush effect above the logo easier. The bottom of the door panel also shows how ridiculous this is. Inconsistent to say the least.

That is not airbrushed, that is reflections of items off the side of the assembly line. Same with the line at the top where the hardtop meets. Warehouses and factories are notorious for having horrible lighting. Don't rush to dismiss this color until you see it in actual daylight. Depending on the color temperature of the lighting in there and the color temperature of the settings on the camera used to take this image can make this vehicle look like a completely different color.

I think if that is the color, then Jeep has done some false advertising on their site!!!! They refer to the color as light grey with hints of aquamarine, so its going to have more blue in it than green.
I think Jeep does a terrible job of showing off the actual colors online. I remember bikini blue looking completely green. You'd think they'd have a way to show the colors better. Online earl looks light blue, which I know is not the case.

Trailhawk Cherokee. Building ‘23 Rubicon.
Im sorry if I offend anyone, but who at Jeep thought this is a good color choice?! This may be the best Jeep color for color blind people. It looks like the Jeep needs some pepto bismol. Cmon Jeep, bring back Chief, baby blue or another Green option, but don’t give us this. This is the paint at Home Depot that nobody wanted except pediatricians offices. The Jeep doesn’t even look happy.

Anywho, I hope those of you who ordered this, really like it LOL. Just one man’s opinion. I know people that also hated orange Jeeps, so 🤷‍♂️.
Because some Einstein over at Jeep just looked at the box.

Truth! The color team at Jeep could really use a creativity injection. Jeep has the most boring colors of any automobile out there.




They must not do any market research at all.
Instead it’s grey, greyish, light grey, grey-een,
moarrrr grey and metallic grey.

Cmon Jeep. You don’t change much year to year so at least give us better colors.

Currently on offer are two grey colours, yellow, dark blue, white, two blacks (one metallic, one clear coat), dark green, purple, and Earl. That is 11 colour options total. Two are grey, 3 if you count Earl. There are automakers out there that only offer four or five colours to choose from it is plenty of pictures. Also, tbh, the marketing team seem to have more leeway in naming the colours, cause the names are quite unlike a few other automakers.

I mean lets be real with that production line pic... It's a SPORT! That's why it looks bad 🙃
Lets face it, whoever is getting that horrible thing will have a bad-A Wrangler with just a few mods and a couple of grand

I'm sorry, I just want to be clear on what you said, are you mocking some for getting a 2 door sport and not spending enough cash on their mods?

I love blue vehicles, but have a severe dislike for non-metallic blue. I think it comes off as childish or cartoon like so Chief would be one of the last colors I would buy, but I know there are people out there that love that color so I'm glad it was offered. To be honest I'm not over the moon for Earl, but it's a new color and I think being somewhat on the neutral side will allow me to be creative with accent color, decals, wheels, etc. I would have loved something like the green on the current Bronco or Copperhead that I had on my 2014 JK, but I could only order what's available. I wanted something new and my wife vetoed High Velocity and Reign - Earl it is.
