      Just a color and decals package, but what a fine color it is:

      I believe this colour is available on normal Grand Cherokees for 2012 as well.

      body-color hard top and fender flares along with special Arctic badges and a Yeti footprint decal that wraps over the driver's side fender and hood
      Good grief that's cheesy!

      Awesome color. The stickers and interior sound positively puke-worthy though.

      I wonder if they'll offer that color on a regular Wrangler Unlimited?

      Since I live in the arctic, I should get it for a discount, right? There are actually about six Wranglers in the arctic village where I am, though Dodges seem far more popular for some reason.

      I dig it. The Yeti badging is a bit much though.

      I saw one on a dealer lot last weekend. List price was around $38k - caught me off guard. It looks good in white though!
