Next year, wanna get a 2dr Rubi as a toy, got a Ram Rebel for work, so don't need a Gladiator or 4dr

Problem is color, since I got everything else down pact.

Between Firecracker, Punk'n and Mojito, doubt I'm the first to be in this position now
I'm boring, love my black but must admit some of the bright colors really look good on the Wranglers.

My color decision flow chart went like this:

1. Is it white, black, grey, silver? If so, it’s a no-go. I’m philosophically opposed to non-color colors. No greyscale for me.

2. Is it loud? If so, it’s a no-go. This eliminated Mojito, Firecracker, Yella, Punk’n... all the bright colors. I like them all but my old TJ was bright red and it was too conspicuous for me.

3. This left Ocean Blue, though even it is a little too bright for me. I would have loved a deep maroon or forest green.

Ford did -I think- one year (2011 2012) of a color called Lava Red on the Mustang and I LOVED it. It was such a deep red that it looked black in most pictures and low-light conditions, but in the sun it was a beautiful metallic red that shifted colors. They had to stop offering it in 2012 2013 because the tsunami in Japan destroyed the factory that made it, IIRC. I got my ‘12 Mustang in Kona Blue which I also loved and I think was a little darker than Ocean Blue.

Bottom line though is that I really love Ocean Blue and can’t wait to see mine in person!

Edit: to answer the OP, because of my handy flow chart, I didn’t find the color choice particularly difficult.
Today, I am leaning towards Ocean Blue. Yesterday it was Granite. Tomorrow???

You know what they say about black. Once you go black, you spend a lot of time washing and waxing it because black jeeps always look dirty.

Don’t agree, but I love it. A man who is “philosophically opposed to non-color colors” is clearly a man who takes his colors (and non-colors) very seriously!

Nah. I just spend a lot of time with a dirty black Jeep.

Ha, good point. I’m thinking of my buddy’s black Infiniti coupe which he has the hardest time keeping clean. Jeeps are absolutely fine being dirty.

And as far as being philosophically opposed to non-color colors, obviously I don’t have any problem with others’ choices of black/white/greyscale, I just like a little color in my color! I go outside and see a sea of grey, beige, black and silver on the road and it makes me sad. I feel like I must do my part to encourage vehicle manufacturers to sell actual colors! That’s why I love colors like mojito and punk’n. At the same time I like to be somewhat inconspicuous on the road so that limits me to less-loud colors like dark blue, maroon, forest green, etc.

I spend a lot of time thinking about cars, the auto industry and its trends, Jeeps, etc....

I have always admired shiny black vehicles, but always bought non-colors (I like that!) because I am slovenly regarding vehicle washing.
Not maintenance, mind you. I’m a hawk there. Tip-top.
Anyway, I reckon Jeeps oughta be dirty. I drive 8 miles on a dirt road which is either dusty or muddy every morning to get to my 800 acre deer lease, and then drop in low range and tool around for an hour or two while my German Shorthair and Catahoula do what they were born to do.
Seems to me that washing the Jeep is a waste of time. It’s just gonna be dirty tomorrow.
Besides, when I see a Jeep which has obviously been off-road, I smile.

As a daily driver in a sales role I felt I had to inconspicuous route as well so ended up with Black. Previously had 2 Rhino JKUR so still feel I should have considered sting grey.

For a 3rd or 2nd car I would definitely consider a bold color and right now would go Mojito!

To my way of thinking, black IS a bold color, unlike white, gray and silver.
Don’t get me wrong; I drove white or silver vehicles most of my life.
If the dealer had had a white one with the options I wanted, it would probably be in my driveway.
I had a choice between black and red, though. I considered them equally bold...well, almost. Red is bolder.
I’m happy with black, but I’d be happy with red as well.
Punk’n and Mojito look very cool to me, but they’re not for me.
All my clothes are earthtones too.
Boring old Joe

Ocean Blue is my favorite. But I have never bought a vehicle based on color. With my Jeep, the transmission of my Xterra failed, so I didn't have time to order. Ended up with a silver Jeep since it had the options I wanted and none I didn't want. My fiancee had banned me from mojito.

Jeeps lots of jeeps
Out of the three that you have listed, I previously owned a Firecracker Red JK and Currently own a Punk'n JL. They are both nice colors. The punk'n is cool because it changes colors based on the light. It can range from a bright tic tac orange to a burnt orange/brown.

I would go with Punk'n.

As for Mojito, I never been able to stand it. I owned Hyper Green and liked Gecko but Mojito is just plain ugly to me.
