Have a gray 2005 jeep wrangler 2.4L and been thinking of painting it flat black. I think it looks tough. Any suggestions?

I agree completely, I like flat black, and your tire cover also!

I'm not a huge fan of flat black replacing the stock color. Especially if you do it all with a rattle can. It'll look blotchy in the sunlight and cheap looking. If you have a decent stock paint job, I'd stick with it. However, every jeeper is different. Do what you like!

You can make it look tough if done right (taking off all hardware, repairing all dents/rust, not using a rattle can) or you can make it look crappy.

Mercedes now offers flat black on some of their models, I used to work near their US headquarters and saw some. Not my choice but then to each their own.
