Is this hydro blue? I definitely love the color on your Rubi.

I am trying to get some other photos of what "type" of blue this is. Is there other FCA models that had it or have it available? Ideally I would like to go see it in person.
Yes, that’s Hydro Blue Pearl, with a touch of Alabama red clay.

This was my 2015 JKU Rubicon in Hydro Blue. Loved the color. Sold it to a friend so I could lease a Hellcat. Now that my lease is 9 months from ending I'm seriously thinking about buying a Gladiator. I need a vehicle I can tow behind by my RV, and I like the idea that it can tow 7k lbs.

Now the question is, what configuration looks best? I liked the black on blue look on my JK, but for some reason I think the painted roof and fenders look great on the JT. Which do you guys like best?

Depends on when you ask me.

I am pretty sure I'm getting a topper and that will be color matched. So I lean towards color matching everything. Without the topper all bets are off!

I like the first one and the third one personally. I like black fenders.

Here's a new shop with the paint colored matched to this guys jK definitely closer than jeeps own render. I can't mimic the effect the sun has so I matched the door color where the sun isn't hitting. Hydro blue seems to look very different based on whether it's sunny or cloudy.

One of the local dealers had a JKUR in Hydro on their used lot. Snapped these as a reference to think about more. Slight overcast today in Houston so it looked a bit darker for sure.

This is about as close as I could get it to your first pic.
