While I absolutely LOVE bikini (and like mojito) Ive been driving nice cars for quite some time, and being in the north east, have had to deal with body shops from minor paint damage forever. On a jeep, touching up parts here and there is common (as we've seen Eddie do numerous times), and while the heart loves bikini and mojito, the brain is saying (from experience) that both mojito and bikini will be almost impossible (basically impossible) to paint match, so the logical part of my brain is saying yellow or white.

    I have always heard yellow is one of the hardest colors to paint match.

    Flat colors are generally not an issue with today's modern paint. However, pearls, especially complex ones with more than one pigment are, so between pigment load, direction of spray, etc, it makes it extremely difficult.

    You're overthinking it. Just get whatever color pitches you're tent.

    Ugh.....just saw the new TFL video on the diesel wrangler with the Jeep brand ambassador....Torque numbers are 442 (supposedly programmed to come on lower than the ram) but the major downer, all diesels will have an across the board 3.73 axle ratio. Im wondering if they did this because of strength, and what the 4:1 transfer case will be doing with torque output with 442ft/lbs. Im not gonna lie, Im a little bummed, wasn't planning on a quick regear after slapping on 37s.

    What makes you think youd need to regear? 37s and 3.73s will be no issue with that much torque.

    I guess my prejudice stems from the gasser wranglers. Also not gonna lie, a bit bummed the gas capacity is only 18 gallons vs 22. Curious, are the gear ratios in the transmission different than the 8 speed of a gasser?
