Eco Green TrailHawk

Here is an Eco Green TH. I put a request to change my color from Anvil to Eco Green tonight. Sales representative said it shouldn't be an issue but will check when it will become available and have an answer for me tomorrow.

Going to have to change your signature order now. Be nice for the delivery date with that color.

I may have to change my signature twice. Changing to Eco Green may significantly change my delivery date. My sales rep is contacting Jeep to get the skinny.

In the meantime I changed my interior to Morocco Black and kept Anvil....off to change my signature for the first time!

Twenty minutes after posting this and changing my signature, my sales rep wrote me saying he got an email from Jeep today and the Eco Green Pearlcoat will be available for order December 9th. So, I am redoing my order then.

Boo! No longer twins, I do like this colour, very much a army looking green!!!

For me to switch would need to see actually pics of it, rather than the jeep renderings etc, Anvil on the Jeep Website Vs actual is quite stark!

I know...I know, no more twins!

I was torn between both and put a family vote out...and a close family friend. It was unanimous so I went with the vote....even those I was leaning a bit that way anyways. I'm not sure I've ever had such a difficult vehicle decision. Probably because I always buy them off the lot.

That is a much darker green than the one shown in the Cherokee brochure... like all of these samples it is hard to get a read on these colors sometimes.

Hmmm, I was considering this color, but I would have had to have waited and I wanted to unload my then current vehicle before inspection time. That is a really nice green, though. Looks great on the TH!

I'm happy with my Anvil, though.

Grand Canyon brown interior is not available with the Eco Green Pearlcoat paint...go figure. I thought that was a pretty good color combination.

Guess it's Eco Green with Black interior!! Ordering today through an overseas purchasing program. I've just been waiting on Eco Green to become available....and today is the day it is available.

Rally:

My brother sold cars for a while at a few different dealerships while he went back to school. He tells of someone in one dealership selling a Corvette order with the weirdest of color combinations. Michigan has a law that a dealer must give back a deposit and cancel the order with no obligation if the customer so chooses to walk away. This particular dealer got stuck with that odd color combination Corvette when the customer walked away. They had a hard time selling it and weren't able to do so until they substantially cut the price. It was situations like that, that caused Chrysler to limit colors to only main stream color combinations. What the dealers in Michigan have done is set the deposit amount for an order according to how main stream the order is and how easy it would be too sell it if the customer walked away. The other thing in play here is that Chrysler no longer makes it own paint so is at the whim of third party paint producers as to colors and availability. That is exactly why your Eco Green took so long to be available. My dad worked in the Chrysler Chemical plant before it was sold off. In those days Chrysler made their own paint. I know about that because my dad installed the mixers. In those days Chrysler could produce any color they wanted, when they wanted. Remember the Plumb Crazy, purple color that was popular on muscle cars?
