Favorite stock jeep color scheme?

Passing by fellow jeepers on the road has made me think about color schemes a lot lately. I'm particularly fond of the a poppy red + khaki soft top TJ or YJ. Though mine is black + khaki with my soft top, which i also love. But i find myself hard-pressed to find JKs i like. As of now, the only one i really like is a 2 door black one. I don't see very many soft tops on them around here, let alone in khaki(Which even makes me assume they don't even come stock with that color >.> ). And i assume that a lot of the owners are wealthy casual people who don't know much about jeep life in general(The kind of people that don't wave back to you :/ )
Personally i don't like a lot of the JK colors that i see on the road right now. But that might be due to the fact that they're newer and lack sun fading/chipped paint/pin strips from branches that show they're being treated like a jeep

My favorite is Moss Green with Spice soft top. Mine is a 1995 Moss Green YJ with a black top. I will be changing the top to spice as soon as I'm able.

I like the White LJ Rubicon with the Grey top (instead of black)

Speaking of winter chill, I'm looking for some help. I've been shopping for my second jeep a while now. I saw a 2012 jeep wrangler unlimited Sahara in winter chill at the dealership yesterday and had to have it. The dealership was advertising it as a soft top cosmos blue and complained it had been on the lot two months. I am trying to work out if this color option was in the arctic edition only or not. The interior has no signs of orange, but then again it looks just like stock photos of the arctic edition. I know people pull the decals off so that's probably no help. Can anyone advise? Either way I love it and am thrilled with my new jeep

From what I understand winter chill was able to be ordered for a very short time before Jeep pulled it. The Arctic's came with black wheels, heated seats, nav system and white gauges as well as the seats you mentioned. Also the yetti foot prints, one on the hood and one on the drivers fender although some people seemed to remove them. Hope this helps a bit....

That does help! I have the nav and the heated seats, but it sounds like the original owners caught the brief window. Thanks for the information!

I love my 98 Saraha's green and spice combo. I think it's just a clean/classic scheme.

I'd prefer green and spice. I've got Chili Pepper and black, but that green combo is JEEP.

Really don't like any of the new "designer" colors.

I bought a new 91yj that was a copper colour. It had both the tan hard top, and half doors with a tan soft top for summer. Man, I loved that jeep. My then girlfriend/now wife took many a road trip/mud run in that thing. I wish I had taken pics of that one. If any one has pics of a jeep that colour, I'd love to see them.

Red is a classic color, as is black. White looks terrific with black accessories. The 'Skittle' colors - Crush, Detonator Yellow, Dozer, Gecko, etc. scream fun and that's part of Jeep ownership.

Most colors look good on a Jeep, but I personally try to stay away from the new 'Buick-Lexus' metallic colors. They are too bland for my taste.

White with a black top. White is my absolute favorite color on any vehicle.

However, I'm quite happy with the Moss Green / Spice combo on my current YJ.

Always liked the 89 Canyon Blue Metallic over spice with a spice top.

I like jeeps that are earth toned. Green, tan, pretty much anything that you can get a little dirty and it almost looks camo.


I love sienna pearl....but its gotta be kept nice if its a pretty color....hahahahahah

I like almost all colors on a Jeep. I have had red, black, and silver jeeps. Newest Jeep is white.

The aforementioned YJ and TJ greens with spice top are both awesome. I really wish spice was a top option today.

I'll be considering trading in my current JKU for another before the next Wrangler arrives. If I do, I hope one of my favorite JK colors- Cosmos Blue, Sahara Tan, Flame Red- comes back. (The latter, I assume, is much more likely than the first 2.)

I like the green and spice combo, just like my YJ. I am still on the fence vis a vis reinstalling the pinstripes I zipped off prior to the repaint; I'd kind of like to do a little better of a job on some body work before putting the stripes back on, but the pinstripes (red and spice stripes) really tie the whole look together, and are an awesome vintage look in my humble opinion.

Also, Jeeps and taxis, again in my opinion, are the only vehicles that look good yellow.

My favorite is a yellow TJ with a black hard top and black wheels. Outside of that i love the JK Gecko with a black top. I'm not normally a shouty person but I love loud colored jeeps.

I think I have some bias on the color because of mine, but I fell in love with the yellow on my '08. I just got it around New Year's, so I don't know what the color code actually is. Detonator Yellow? It looks great with the black top, and I'm going to pick up some more black accent pieces to make it pop.

I never would have imagined myself driving a yellow vehicle though - of any kind!
