is your jeep the color of your choice...

Well, not exactly that, because you chose it didn't you. The question is - If you had your choice of a rainbow of colors what color would you choose?

I have a silver jeep, but there's this bright slimey green that I love. I'm partial to orange, too. Really orange, like my art studio. I like flashy colors I guess.

Anyone? Colors? Purple? Lavender? Sunburst yellow? Brown? Pink?

I like green with the spice top. Green is my favorite color and it blends in with the woods without being camo. Both of my jeeps have been that color combination.

I have the Khaki metallic which was my first choice

Reminds me of when I was in the Army,so my TJ has
an Army theme going on it.................................
VET license plates,Unit License frame,U.S. Army Tire Cover

My second choice would have been Flame Red,now if they
had a light blue color I would have gotten that.

I am pretty happy with the khaki metallic, but would have preferred the Aztec Orange that they used to make, that is my favorite color...

I have the same Khaki metallic. I like it a lot, but could totally do orange or red (non metallic) on my next Jeep. The paint on this one chips very easy.

I have a silver one too, because they din't have an electric lime green one around when I was shopping for it, but another choice would be the 07 rescue green. That's a good looking color too.

I fell in love with Chilipeper Red when i first saw my jeep. When the light hits it at night it gets an orange to red fade, plus there arent to many on the road

Wanted red when I bought mine, but too impatient to wait for it to be ordered, so I took a Khaki metallic off the lot.

Future job: knock out a few rock dents and paint it a bright: "shocking" green

When I restored my CJ3A, it was like starting off with a blank canvas. I wanted Yellow... so I went through the paint books looking at dozens of shades of yellow. I settled on "Dodge Viper Yellow", and I am really happy with the end result!

chasm - that sounds like so much fun. I'd love to do that. But, alas, I was so jazzed just to have a jeep, when the money came my way I couldn't resist the pull of my silver baby.

No one has any weird color choices though I noticed. No freaky Pepto-pink or purple. I love the loud colors, but they don't seem freaky on a jeep for some reason. Bright green, orange, yellow are my favorites, but there weren't any flashy colors on the lot when I stumbled in there wide eyed with cash in my pocket. My next jeep's got to be a loud color though, something you can see a mile away.

(and square headlights, I love those)

There is something to be said for silver beige or white, when you scratch them, it's hardly noticeable.

I Love my color, it was the only one I would accept from the Dealer. They had to go 350 miles to pick it up for me. Yellow with a black soft-top. I can't wait to add black highlights all over it, like the corner protectors and the rock sliders.

Lime green metallic. Found one at a dealer when I first started looking. It was love at first sight.

I really wanted to paint mine something like this... but before I do, could anyone tell me if you know of a company that makes a PLAID soft top?
