Congrats OP! Especially since you went for the 6 speed :)

I had my order for Punk'n as well...but I switched once I saw Mojito and I learned Punk'n was not actually metallic and did not align with early photos or the actual Jeep owners manual that came with my Mojito Jeep. I have owned a number of orange cars / trucks so I immediately gravitate towards them. I still like Punk'n but was hoping for more of a copper hued / burnt metallic orange this time around.

Cheers

I am with you 100%. That coppery metallic orange color is what I was hoping for and I found this to a bit too reddish for my taste.

It’s called copperhead pearlcoat from 2014, and as soon as I can talk the wife into it, that’s what my rubi will be painted .... :whew: I love that color especially trimmed in black....:)
That's exactly what I wanted. When I saw the punkn in person, :puke:, it just wasn't my color. Especially when the builder shows it more coppery. But I also thought the SG looked horrible until I saw it in person :involve:

It’s funny how we all have our tastes. I wouldn’t want it coppery at all and am glad it looks flat. I would have thrown a bit more yellow if I were mixing the paint, but I still love it.

Haha indeed it is! So it sounds like you would have liked Nacho? I felt like it was a yellowish Punk'n.

Congrats! Prepare yourself for daily compliments on your color choice. :clap:
Orange wasn't even on our radar when we went shopping. The one and only Jeep we test drove was the Punk'n... a couple hours later she was all ours :like: The Punk'n is an interesting color as it changes drastically depending on the light. Sometimes pale. Sometimes as orange as you can imagine. Personally the oranger the betterer!

I almost bought a Punkn, too, with the "upgraded" Rubi wheels but god I thought it looked horrible with those wheels. The price was gonna be right so I said I'd deal with it...but fortunately for me that deal fell through and I got a Mojito with the "basic" Rubi wheels which I think are WAY better

Looking good! I went with the Mojito after first telling the dealer that it was the ugliest Jeep i had ever seen... 2 minutes later I told him to draw up the paperwork because I had to have it..

I went from granite to sting-gray (stayed on it for several months) then went with Punk'n.
fun color which goes great with the Wrangler overall feel ... my humble opinion :movember:

You are so right! It's definitely not a metallic Orange at all. I was a little disappointed too, but my wife wanted the Mojito and I'm not too crazy about green. So we compromised.

Gorgeous Jeep. Congratulations and glad Jeep still offers the 6-speed.
I just ordered the new manual race pedals from Quadratec and they are completely out of stock. I was totally surprised which tells me there are a lot of 6 speeds I guess.
