Not a lot of people are willing to blast off a brand new perfectly good powder coat job and repaint something to make it match everything else.

So that being said to me whatever color/ black looks good but still is a cheap, unoriginal, lazy, and overdone way of doing it. I am sure someone will get butthurt and tell me how big of an ass I am for giving my opinion that doesn't match 95% of the forum soon, even if what I said might make since if you think about it.

Mine is red and blue. I like it. Of course it has black too, but as far as accents, blue.

Khaki. I recently saw someone who put a khaki soft top on a red TJ and it stood out nicely. It was more of a complimentary color than a contrasting black.

Red and tan is always a classic combo.

Black...red and black go together well. The problem with khaki is that if you don't have the matching interior then it looks bad. If you do, then go for it. I'm a big fan of a top matching the seats.

Yellow seems like it would look too much like McDonalds, and White is just...eh.

Anyone have any pictures of their color combos? I would love to see them!
A real firefighter would not ask this question. A real Firefighter knows that gold leaf is the only true accent color to red.

If everything was white that might look really good.

I'd say black and maybe a darker silver or gray. I know it's a JK but I did black and red on my TJ with some stock YJ wheels that are gray.

Looks great!

My preference is black accents for a red vehicle. Watched TV yesterday morning on the new Corvette. Their test car as red with black. Lots of sport cars use that combination. I also feel its best to stick with only two colours. This is subjective, I'm sure you're not surprised that my JK is red and black :-)

Ran across this thread when looking for a good and different accent color for my red JK. I like the red and black but pretty much every Jeep I see is some color and black. Also trying to avoid all my family that are Aggies telling me I have a Texas tech Jeep. Was thinking red and yellow would look really cool in an old school Hulkamania kind of way. Picture the hood with custom Jeepmania stickers. Please don't picture me flexing and ripping my shirt every time I step out of the jeep though. For some reason when my mind starts running wild... All I can picture with the red and yellow combo is a Chicken Express.

Guess I should just fall in line and go red/black.

Would love some black wheels, something like XD Addicts or something. Just want something different other than all black accents. About the only other thing I might do in red would be paint some d-rings red for the bumpers. Not gonna lie.. black looks good with most colors.
