I have a feeling lots of people say they are going for the red/black, blue/black, green/black, orange/black, black/ black look simply because most of the items you buy come all ready in black. I bet if nothing came all ready painted or coated we would see more jeeps with different colors. 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.

Looking to get some new fenders, grill inserts, and various other things.
I know alot of it would be personal preference. The only combos I have come up with are Red and White, Red and Black (pretty much what I have now) and Red and Yellow.
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.
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.

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.
