Default Cheap Crayons

You know, the kind you use to get when your grandparents would take you to the buffet and they would give you crayons with your placemat....


That is the color of the 2013 "rock lobster" Red Wranglers. WTF. Someone should get fired for that decision. I wish I could find a pic for you online, but I've seen several at the Chelsea dealership and want to puke. Mind you, this is from a guy who thinks all Jeeps should be red, just not THAT shade of red.

Just my vent in hopes that Chrysler will fire the ass that made that decision. It's the worst color I've ever seen on a Jeep. Looks like it belongs on a Kia.

No dune and commando green are the ugly colors. Mainly commando green. You ain't going to war in one, its not commanding anything.

My mom used to buy me rose art crayons when I was in elementary school. I was not impressed, very cheap crayons for the money IMO.

What are you complaining about? You have an instant touch up paint kit for 99 cents.

Sun faded to match the soon to be sun faded fender flares.

Jeep refers to it as "dune" on their 2013 Jeep colors

I just realized you were talking about colors for 2013 when 2014's are starting to hit the lots...

Yes, I've only seen the ugly rock lobster jeeps on the lots the last couple months, but it is listed as a 2013 color. Maybe there was some heated debate at Chrysler-Jeep over the past year, lots of name calling and punches thrown as they decided whether or not to put the ugly ass color into production...
