You won't have to. 2-door ordering will open in February. :like:

This color isn't listed in the Order guide posted on December 4th is it possible it might become available early 2019?

As it’s a late availability colour, seeing it at all was a bonus.

We’re likely not going to see a 2Dr until closer to the colour launch date (when they start to trickle out of the plant) or if it’s associated with a Special Edition then possibly at the SE announcement or shown at NAIAS in Detroit where you often see SEs.

Man. I’ve never had a yellow vehicle before, I wonder if they pull noticeably more attention from police than red.

Is there anymore info on the Hella Yella color option? The ocean blue and nacho colors are coming out now instead of March, is it possible the yella will too?

Statistically, not much difference in traffic stops between red and yellow vehicles as you cannot miss either of them, but neither color is really over-represented as a whole in the traffic citation numbers. In fact, police have a pretty good eye for vehicles no matter what their color that are "out of place," meaning driving faster than the traffic flow, weaving in and out of traffic, tailgating, etc. Interesting enough, in one unscientific study, white cars were disproportionately ticketed at a lower rate than most other cars, suggesting some "invisibility" of white vehicles. I drive fast in almost all of my vehicles EXCEPT my Jeeps because when I'm driving my TJ (Flame Red) or JKU (Hydro Blue), I'm just enjoying the journey and generally in no hurry to get anywhere.

Had a buddy with a yellow 'vette - not just bees, but ladybugs and all kinds of other flying creepy-crawlies used to flock to his car. My blue 'vette would be parked right next to his and nada. Not that he ever got teased about it . . . :)

Interesting, just noticed the All Weather Mats didn’t have red lettering on this build. I wonder what dictates the red vs black? Is it just a matter of Factory vs separate Mopar purchase?

Just as an FYI to the thread, the Hella Yella is appearing in the Dutch and German Configurators (along with Mojito).

Odd that Nacho never made and appearance, and was mostly seen on Saharas (with a few Sports) at dealerships. I don’t think I saw a single Rubi, though they’re likely out there somewhere.

Hope one or both of these options still remain for the Fall/Winter 2019 model year.
