I love the Rescue Green! I was talking with a salesman at the dealership the other day, he said people either love it or hate it (obviously), but more people hate it. He said he hears constant remarks about how horrible it is; cat puke, baby $hit, you get the picture. I will say this much, you couldn't get away with it on anything but a Wrangler.
I was kind of surprised when they came out with Rescue Green, because it looks a lot like my 97's Citron Pearl Coat and I don't hear a lot of good things about it. Worst case, people say "it's ugly", best case, they say it's "unique". "Unique" to them is probably the polite way of saying "ugly", but to me I honestly like the fact that I almost never see one like it. It's the only thing that has kept me from repainting it.
See I'm doubly screwed on this post. Not only do I like the Rescue Green, I would love to own a JK 4dr. With 3 big kids and all the extras that come with offroading, I would totally love the extra doors and space, and extra wheelbase is a plus too. Looks still growing on me but with Bushwacker flares I'm sold. I'm actually surprised Rescue green is not selling, in an age of people wanting to be special and seen as sophisticated colors like Rescue Green would hit a spot. Just have to win the powerball before March 17th to get mine on special order I guess.

I am right there with you. I almost got the green but by the time I called the dealership that had it, they had sold it. So I have a white one, but I still love it. Guess I am gonna have to hit the lotto too so I can get that green one.
update.. I got this from the jk-forum Don-a-Vee posted it..
On February 7, we notified you that Rescue Green was being replaced by
Detonator Yellow on Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited. However, based on
feedback from many of you, we have decided to keep Rescue Green, still introduce Detonator Yellow in May, and instead drop Light Graystone.
Production of Light Graystone is scheduled to end in mid April 2007 with
final orders due by March 14, 2007. Please review your inventory needs
and plan accordingly.
I'm with you too, that gray was non impressive. And though I hate yellow, A wrangler is the only vehicle next to maybe a Ferrari that I actually like it.
Great to hear the Green is staying, might be able to arm wrestle my wife into trading in her Evergreen - Green Jeep in for Rescue Green.
