OT: Big Green Jeep- your opinion?

I am kicking around the idea of getting a jeep. I saw this one at a dealer:

4050fcf00a0a0002006c20c89c3259c4.jpg

The color is called rescue green. I personally like the color, but it took a minute to grow on me. I would love to hear your honest opinions.

1) Unique Color.
2) Why would you want a pea soup green jeep?

BTW- they said they would remove those ugly decals on the hood for me.

I know this belongs on the OT forum but nobody would see it over there :P.


Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

  • The color is called Rescue green for a reason. Someone needs to rescue it from the person who picked out the paint color. It's ugly.
    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!
  • Not too bad....definitely different, but if it were my money, I'd get a color a little more re-sellable- cool lookin ride tho!
  • OK, the second time I looked at it, it looked a little less gross. Maybe Tredwell has a point about the resale factor.

    I think the advantage of that color is that if a baby were to poop on it, you'd never be able to tell it. I would call it 'baby poop camouflage green'.

    On the other hand, you'd probably hav eno problem finding it in a crowded parking lot.

    I agree!

    Thank you all for the honest answers :). It's funny at first I was "no way"...but then it grew on me. Definitely agree with CT about resale on an odd color like that.

    Besides...this one matches my egg better:

    I think you'll be happy with the Rubicon but you may be able to get a better deal on the mountain, because of the color. While it does grow on you my first reaction was ugly.
  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,625
    Smokey, the color is excellent, I would buy it in a minute if I were in the market for that type of vehicle. You're the one driving it & if you like it who gives a fly'n f if anyone else likes it

    Get the Rubicon. I've got an '04 Rubi that is yellow. Didn't want a yellow jeep, but it was the only used Rubi I could find. The color has definitely grown on me. Maybe some day I'll trade it in for a 4 door model.

    i would get the color i liked, whats resale, bought my last truck in 1989 and dont want to replace it B) if i bought a new jeep i would be scratching it in the woods the first day, just to get used to the four wheel drive system, lighter colors hide scratches better. i would never get a black jeep :whistle:
  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 21,049
    i like the mango tango, might paint my current truck that color, its time for a paint job :laugh:

    thats in nice shape. maine woods are brutally over grown, it would be all scratched if it were mine :) i stoved my door in within the first few hundred miles and wore the skid plates off in a few places on my 89 :laugh: almost wish the paint matched the primer
  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 21,049
    i have on my 71 yota :laugh: was thinking rhino shield next time. my 89 dakota i want a good paint job on, not many made like mine with the drop top
  • stikestike Posts: 15,597

  • yep ,.. been off road a lot.. i drive it onto the yard and wrap a chain around the shrubs i want to remove and pull them out..

    I like Jeeps. I'd like to own one. The biggest thing holding me back is EVERY friend I know who has had a Jeep has had it either stolen or broken into. Felt bad for one friend who had 4 stereos stolen from his Jeep.
  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 21,049
    these are my two. the 89 just passed 80k, the yota has around 30k. i dont think the toyata has seen more than a couple thousand miles on the road, bought it from a guy that only used it to plow a dirt road to get to the house

  • nice!!!
    i would love to have plow but really don't need one..
  • WWSisWWSis Posts: 1,448
    The color is okay I guess, I have the two-door wrangler in the darker green - absolutely hate the ride (similar to a tank), noise and frigid temps in the winter - have to keep the fan on ALL the time on high or it gets cold. Also...doesn't defrost the windshield worth a crap. I've owned five jeeps; I will buy another one but not another wrangler.
  • Wranglers are an absolute blast when the weather's nice.

  • I just bought a new Wrangler on Thursday, but I went for the color "mango tango". I didn't see any of the pea-green Jeeps on the lot, and having seen your photo, I think I'd still be driving the mango tango today :)

    Loving it so far, especially as we're up to our eyeballs in snow around here.
  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 21,049
    ive got a plow but have never used it :laugh: when i got it i put a lift on it, i dont think the plow would fit right unless i dropped the bumper, and the mount is really low, loses the clearance.
  • BigBadgerBigBadger Posts: 461
    Great looking vehicle that Toyota! Hard to find a good one that's not all rusted out around these parts.
  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 21,049
    the rear section has been rebuilt a bunch of times, almost want to swap it out with an aluminum tub section but the part is worth more than the truck. i see talk about jeeps being hard riding and cold, they should try one of these frigid back breakers, there is a reason the mileage is low, crawls over anything, just dont go fast and hit a rock

    I like the color because it's different. Why be boring? Go for it!
