I'm so glad this picture got posted! Jeep's site does a HORRIBLE job of depicting the actual color of this blue. I was really hoping for the Ocean Blue the JL comes in, but the color (at least on my computer screens) that they are using for Hydro Blue looks very pale. This picture looks more like the Ocean Blue on the JL on their website "build it" tool. I do believe this is the color for me... :)
I have a Hydro JKU. It's lighter than the Ocean from the JL for sure. They put it on the JK from '14-'17 (I think, without looking up the exact years), so there should be plenty of pictures on the internet for you to see it in all different lights. Or even better if you get good at telling the difference between the blues you can probably spot one around town... It's a great color, I plan on trading my Hydro JKU in for a Hydro JT in the coming months.

ORDERED! I opted for the body matched fenders (I really liked how the Rubi looked that was posted a few days ago). I had been working with a dealer that said they'd match another price I had, no problem. TODAY they decided to play the number game between the salesman and the manager. I left and ordered it from another dealer I had called earlier today that stood by their offer to match.

I have no idea when I'll have my JT, but I'm expecting December. Anytime before that will just make me happier. It's been a LONG wait...from the grumblings of MAYBE Jeep is going to make a truck, to CONFIRMED, to released date announced to "Aug 5th" to now. I've missed my JK since I traded it in 2015, and soon I'll be back to the kind of Jeep I love!

Congrats to all my fellow Hydro Blue Pearl Gladiator holdouts! We made it!

A white or black with a hydro grill would look sweet! I'm sure someone will trade you. But then you'd have a black gloss grille, but that might be pretty cool too :) I just wanted the satin to "match" the black top and fenders :)

Does this mean I have a CHOICE on the tonneau cover between roll-up, soft trifold & hard trifold? I'd rather have the hard one than the soft.

Those were the 3 options that it gave

Does anyone know how long it normally takes to get your VON. Should the dealer get that as soon as they place the order?
mine was one day but they usually move it to D status and give it a VIN and VON and then the pricing is updated on the order as well...

It does not change just updates in the ordering system.

Do you have the order codes? Dual top group says, "M/H CSD OR CSU OR CT6" in the order guide. Do you know which code is the hard -vs- soft covers?
  • CSD == roll-up
  • CSU == ???
  • CT6 == ???
Thank you.

CSU- is the MOPAR hard tri-fold tonneau cover. so based on what others have said, the CT6 might be the soft fold up

I have my VON! the only tracker I can find asks for a VIN though. Does anyone know how to track status using your VON?

Contact Jeep Chat and give them your VON and they’ll tell you if you were assigned a VIN.

The Hydro Blue color will vary in different lights. Here’s some photos of my old Hydro Blue Polar.
