Thats some good info. Does anybody know what the 26w and 28w packages are? They are being replaced this spring with 26Y and 28Y along with those new colors.

Cool, will make mine more rare... :-p

I believe the Modern Blue color is the blue used on the 2008 Liberty (KK).

It is confirmed the Modern Blue is the same as the 08 Liberty. I went and looked at one today and the color is very close to Steel Blue.

I wonder if Olive will be close to what Dk Khaki was? Unless they are planning on getting rid of Jeep Green I don't see them having two greens.

I hope Olive is a dark Khaki like color because I really like mine and when I trade for an 08 I would like to have the same color.

The W's are current Rocky Mtn Packages...Y's are what they have been historically..I'd guess they are just going back to the Y's. 26=3.7L 28=4.7L
