Parked beside one of the yellow jackets,should of brought my camera.
The stinger yellow is close to detonator yellow but the stinger is a shade darker not lighter as some people thought.

Just got my YJ over the weekend. I just sold my DY and was worried about buyers remorse after I got my YJ. I loved my DY. Here are my observations... The color: I think the SY might be a touch 'deeper' than the DY and maybe even a bit darker but not by much. As a matter of fact, unless you have both a DY and SY side by side it might be hard to tell the difference. My DY color appeared to be 'thinner' if that makes any sense. The SY definitely seems to be 'deeper'. If you are worried about the SY being dull, don't worry. It's still plenty bright. You will draw a lot of attention. lol. The wheels: I was surprised. I was really hesitant until I saw them in person. The wheels kind of fit the car pretty well. Stripes: The jury is still out. The side stripe is ok but there is a lot of unbroken yellow paint on the hood, roof, trunk etc. And like I said it's bright but maybe some sort of striping on the top/hood might be in my future...But who knows, maybe it will grow on me. If not, I can always change it, lol. The rest of the car is pretty much the same except for some small blacked out trim on the exterior and some small interior items/seat striping. Overall, the color is great. I'm very happy with it.

Our YJ is supposed to arrive next week. Are the YJ wheels same as standard SRT wheels? (spacing, offset,ect.) Can I run 275-40 all around with no handling or rubbing problems? I don't think I can stand leaving the car in the garage because of the f1 tires and cold temps....

Oh, and my dad's YJ arrived at the train yesterday, so we're going to pick it up there at the yard tomorrow most likely.

Lisa,

That's awesome! I will definitely be ordering some bling with that logo. Can you make it any size? I was thinking of getting the fuse box cover, with that logo and "Yellow Jacket" on it. But I would want the logo and lettering to be larger than it would be on the catch can.
