    I've got to admit, Jeep has some great colors. Mine is white, even that is a bright white and looks good. Some of the metallic greens, that remind you of military, look great.

    I was in the military and never once saw a metallic green, it's olive drab. In my mind Jeep's bright green is more reminiscent of a early 70's muscle car color.

    Yeah, the current green is 'GREEN!!!'. I'm thinking the Tank Green from 2016 and earlier. Couldn't find any pictures to do it justice. Looks great in real life 1:1 scale.

    Tank Green was a one year, 2015 color. The current green is Gator Green. Compared to Tank, Gator is a lot lighter. 2013 was Commando Green and Black Forest Green. 2011 was Natural Green. 2016/2018 was Sarge Green. I think Commando looks more olive compared to Sarge. They all have different paint codes and so they vary a slight from one another. Gator's a cool color though.

    There for awhile they changed the palette every week I think. I wanted the desert sand color back in ‘13. I finally gave up and got silver right off the lot. Kind of glad I did.

    I’ve got a feeling those ATs are better in the snow than the Rubi’s factory MT’s.

    Managed to customize my new YJ already, didn't even have plates on it yet.

    Turns out 20 year old rock hard goodyears have essentially zero traction on black ice. I managed to rear end the HR director where I work while on my morning commute. Not a super career enhancing move.:baldy

    Did $2300 damage to her F150 which I had to write a check for since I'm already barely insurable with 2 crash prone teenage girls and a speed demon wife on my policy. :bluduh

    Instant Flatfender mod! Not much damage. You could probably take the front part of the fender off. Or just replace the whole fender. You might consider trimming back the front bumper a bit. If you ever get into another accident, the bumper will bend then push into the tire.
