What is your favorite jeep color?

thinking about changing up the color, what are your opinions about what you think are the best looking colors for jeeps, as well as chrome vs black rims.

I hated the color when it came out but as strange as it may seem I think Gheco with alot of black trim would be my choice if it was available (which its not). Have True Blue pearl but like Black and White as well. Kinda like all of them damn....choices.

You say change up color, do you mean trade it in or do you mean have it painted?

How is this post going to help you?? If you get 10 people saying the best color is Amp'd with black wheels... Will you go out and do it. A month later ask the question and 10 people might say commando green with chrome wheels. Then what??? Sell your jeep?

The best color is whatever YOU like best. It is a color, it does not serve any function except to please the eye.

Go look at an Anvil in color, preferably a Willys Wheeler. I think it looks great, especially with all the black fenders/wheels.

No website picture does it justice. It wasn't on my radar until I went to test drive a jeep and my wife mentioned that she really liked it. I was so set on the few colors I did like (hydro, granite, and the thought of what Tank might look like) that I noticed it but didn't take it serious. Then I saw a few driving around and went back to a dealer right before the first Tank pic came out, and decided I had to have it!

Still waiting, but should pick mine up in a week or so.

Have black but Hydro Blue is by far the best looking. The 14 altitudes and 15 hard rock edition are gorgeous. Wish I could afford one.

Call me old fashioned but I still prefer a nice dark green colour when it comes to Jeep.
When I think Jeep, I think green!

Personally, I liked and ordered the Billet Silver w/ a black hardtop for some contrast (it's the Sahara so it has the body colored fenders--seemed too much silver for me to go with a color-matched top and I've heard they scratch pretty readily if you plan on changing them out throughout the year with the soft top).

I do like black Jeeps as well (saw a gorgeous '14 Rubi X), but black is a bear to keep clean, whereas the silver never seems to look bad (unless it's mud, caked on dirt or pollen (my last couple of cars have been silver including a 2011 Infiniti M37x and a 2012 Ford Explorer and they are/were amazingly easy to keep looking clean). My wife has a 2008 Pilot in silver (actually has the color on the sticker listed as "billet silver" just like the Jeep) and hers never looks dirty either.

Before that I had a few black cars (a 2004 BMW X5 and two Infinitis--a 2005 G35s Coupe and a 2008 G37s couple) and they sucked having to keep clean because black showed EVERYTHING.

The one "odd" color that I did like on the jeeps was the Copperhead pearl, which I don't know 100% if I actually would've ordered it or not, but I did really think it looked sharp (of course, unavailable now). Bottom line, though--as others have said--is to get what makes YOU happy.

+1. Anvil WW pulls off the grey with black accents well. Love mine.

The general consensus is the 2011 sahara (or sierra) tan was the best color jeep put out.

I have a buddy who's into plastidipping all his cars. Thinking of going this route and seeing if I can get somewhere close to this on my billet.

BTW, I do like my billet a lot too. My dad has a commando green (my favorite of the 2013 colors) but since he beat me to it I had to go a different route.

Dozer, hands down. I wasn't sure at first but I love it, it really stands out. 2012 model.

I sold my red TJ a little over two years ago. When I decided I missed having a Jeep, I told myself I was going to buy exactly what I wanted this time around. When it came down to color, it had to be either black or green. After a little flip-flopping, I got black. Close second was commando green.

I would imagine everyone will say their own. In my case, Copperhead Pearl JKUR with black top and fenders. The black and burnt orange go great together. I get compliments everywhere I go about the color.

1983 White convertable Buick Riviera with red interior Simply killer. Coupe De Ville did that color scheme nicely too. Why not a JK, I bet that would look sharp.

The white with red leather does look sharp! It was my second choice (only because it didn't have the transmission I wanted and I was holding out). My intention was to purchase green because who doesn't love a green Jeep? But when I saw the anvil it was love at first sight and a year later it is still my favourite colour.

Commando green is my fav. The only nice one I could find used didn't have A/C so I ordered Hydro. Glad I didn't wait for Tank.

I'm partial to the Commando, OEM grayish wheels or black, not a big fan of chrome wheels.

You say change up color, do you mean trade it in or do you mean have it painted?

...or have it wrapped. The sky is the limit on wraps and it's much cheaper than a new paint job.
