Getting close to ordering, but need a little help finalizing color choice. After initially loving that beautiful ocean blue, but ruling it out with a blue FJ and a blue Scout already in the stable, we were 99% set on sting-gray...but now FIRECRACKER RED is in the mix. After searching through the 2 door threads and the firecracker red thread (admittedly not all of either thread but as much as my patience would allow), I’ve concluded that 2 door Rubicons in Firecracker Red aren’t nearly as common as blue or gray...at least those owned by people who post pictures online. So, to help with my decision making, if anyone has a 2 door JL Rubicon with a 2 - 3 1/2” lift, stock rubicon rims, and 35-37” tires, and would be willing to post some pics, I’d love to see them. Bonus points for a black top or soft top. Pics with these specs seem to be a dime a dozen in grey and blue but I sure haven’t seen any in red. Apologies to any I may have missed. Thanks in advance!

Not a 2-door or a Rubicon but a Firecracker Red.

I’ve owned many Wranglers, most of them some shade of green; this is my first red Jeep. I didn’t set out to get a red Jeep but I love it!

Firecracker is a very rich, deep color. Plus I can find it right away in a parkade!

Little known fact: Firecracker Red has a long heritage, going back to 1970.

To answer your question Jeff... I wasn't aware there were any other colors for a Jeep Wrangler? :angel::jk:

Looks great! To update my original post, I ordered a JLR in mid December. Went with the FIRECRACKER RED! Waiting for its arrival is tough. I’ll update with pics once it’s here.
