Hi guys,
So I am going to be purchasing a "new" Jeep to replace my 2005 TJ, and I have decided that I am going to get a 2 door JL Rubicon (either a 2018 or 2019) and have been on the hunt to find one in one of my 3 favorite colors. To be honest, I really like all 3 colors and have been having a really hard time picking which one I want because this new JL will be my daily driver and I am going to have it for a long time.

My favorite color is green but I currently own an Electric lime green TJ, so I'm not too sure if I want another green Jeep. I like the bikini blue but fear I will have a harder time finding one because they came out in 2019, so thats one less year to find them in. Finally, I really like the orange, but maybe I am leaning more towards this one because this color is much more easier to find.

My question is, between these 3 colors, which one do you like best? If anyone out there owns any one of these colors, let me know how you like it and maybe why you chose it. I just don't want to get sick of or regret whatever color I choose. I also like red and white, but I am particular to exotic colors in Jeeps.

Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated!!

I like Bikini, Punk’n and Mojito, in that order.

Bikini is a more mature color; Mojito is more in your face. Punk’n is, well, orange...

So it all depends if you want to stand out, you want something more sophisticated, or you want a timeless, classic orange color.

I have a Firecracker Red JL. I never envisioned myself owning a red Wrangler. It’s VERY red; now I’m kind of infatuated with this color.

Mojito is a very unique color, and you already like green. I wanted Bikini, really wanted Bikini, but my wife said she didn't like it and there weren't any around here so I got Firecracker Red which I also really like. I would have been fine with Punkin, and personally I'm not such a fan of green. I've decided I like Ocean Blue also. Granite Crystal is a good color for the JL, a safe color, and I looked for that one too, but it just isn't as much fun.

I have a Punkin and Bikini. Bikini you have to see in person as photos do not capture the true color. Punkin is a great color and was my first choice. Obviously Bikini was my second choice and Heller Yellow was third. After have them though I can’t imagine having any other colors. Glad I have two so I don’t have to pick between Punkin and Bikini.

I absolutely HATED bikini. Then I saw it it person and hated it. Then I saw it again and again and again. I really like it now.

but.....

I would go with Punk’n. It’s a tad less “girlie“ (no haters, please) and big and bold. If you can’t find a pumk‘n, get bikini and make sure to get a mani/pedi every other week (I kid.... I kid... I kid.... )

Honestly same with me! In my opinion, red has always been the "classic" Jeep color. I never thought I would ever consider or possibly think about getting a red Jeep. However, times have changed.

To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of ocean blue, however, I do like the red. In my opinion, red is classic and you really can't go wrong with it.

Haha I was gonna ask you which color you like more then I read your last sentence. At least you have the best of both worlds.
