    Does anyone else here besides me wish the gladiator was offered in all of the same colors as the JL (and vise-versa)? If I had a choice and were ready to buy today, I'd want to pick the darker shade of blue, referred to as Ocean Blue, as apposed to the the tone we get, Hydro Blue if I had the option to do so. How about the rest of you, would you like to see a factory JL color on the Gladiator that isn't on our choice list?

    While we're at it, I'll throw in the question about tan soft tops. Here's a visual reference regarding both posts, using my two preferred builds as a basis:

    I don't wish that. I am a long time Wrangler and CJ owner, and one of the things about the class is that they have long had a color or two that were only available on a Wrangler (or CJ). I don't think we should just throw tradition out the window

    The thing is though, the Gladiator pretty much is a Wrangler in every way except the model name, especially if you consider the whole Scrambler evolution concept, so it feels like this should be an exception to that idea.

    The doors are the same as a Wrangler, but the body and frame are pretty much different for all they look like the JL. They really share very few parts.

    But point taken, and you could have the right of it.

    Somebody pointed out somewhere on here that the paint codes are repeated so if you go aftermarket respray double check the paint color!

    Does that mean you can get the factory paint of a different color on respray?

    If they had a Rubicon Gladiator in Bikini Pearl, I'd buy it right now.

    My sport it Firecracker red with tan interior, I would love a tan soft top to set it off, but we'll see.

    I don’t care if the colors are the same as JL, it would have been nice to have some good color choices. How many versions of grey are really needed? I would like a green of the non army variety. Though gator is my fav color offered.

    I had briefly thought of the idea of "what if it was offered in yellow", first time in my lifetime that a new jeep was produced that could be accurately labled as a Tonka Truck!

    I heard that they did it as an official limited-production run for the CJs, as shown bellow:

    If they offered it in Hella Yella I would have ordered an Overland in that color or maybe a Sport S. I prefer those body color fenders.

    just be careful using the build tool color renderings as some of the colors are not accurate. Such as Gator - way off. Blue? not sure yet.
