Yah I like the tan, any particular reason you wanna change it? You think the fenders clash with the top or what?

I thought it would look better black or "sand beige metallic" I think is what the actual color is but it looks green to me. Just wanted to see what other people thought before I did anything.

i have to say i prefer it tan, especially since it matches your pin striping.

I think it would look sharp if it was the same color as the body, maybe even do the wheels to match

May as well get a new jk if you want a matching top, I have the same combo but soft top and love the green and tan.

i'm not a fan of the top being the exact same color as the jeep,
i've seen too many militarized-theme jeeps where they did this, and those look okay but not as good as a 2 tone, and also don't look like a WWII jeep, a WWII jeep the body was OD but the top ended up a lighter version of OD, and the 2tone looks good to me.

my jeep is a dark olive, its hardtop is black, i'm gonna get the top painted an olive drab that is a distinct shade lighter than the body - i don't want it same color as the body.
small fwiw i've painted my wheels to infact match the body, although slightly flatter finish on the wheels.

i think your body color is great, and i think there are multiple other colors that would look great with it, i'd spend time in mspaint or something or googling pics, to see what other colors you may also like; you have a lot of options.

I'd keep the color you have and tint the windows, but if you must, go with black.

it takes me a while to get to the exact right location on this website,
but if you monkey around here and find the "see wheels on your vehicle", it has a little app that lets you change features and colors of your vehicle -- intended to let you see wheels on it but you can also use the app to see different looks of body and top colors and hard and soft top.

***well.. maybe it doesn't let you change the top..sorry... it thought it did, maybe it was another website i found that did...
