I need some opinions

I am in the process of somewhat blacking out my silver TJ (kind of a black ops effect). I am getting tinted windows for my soft top, bedlined my wheels, bedlined my chrome grill inserts. I still have to bedline my hood latches and nerf bars.

I am getting a Zone 2" BB w/ hydro shocks this week, and I am thinking of adding a little color underneath the jeep while I have everything disassembled. My plan is to plasti dip my coils because you can get it in different colors. I am thinking of going with the blaze orange because 1) I am a Vols fan and 2) because it doesn't seem like a color you see on jeeps very often.

What do you guys think? What should I use to possibly put some color on the shocks too? Any other advice on what to put some color on?

What kind of prep would I need for the calipers? I thought about that, but I don't know that I want to disconnect a lot that has to do with my brakes.

If you are getting the Skyjacker Hydro's, they are already white with red boots. Not the best choice of shocks regarding ride quality, IMO.

I've been told more time than I can tell you on here to stay away from any cheap shocks.

On a college budget and have been shopping shocks, of course I want to go with shocks under $50 a Piece.
Skyjacker hydros/ nitros, rancho5000, etc....
Everyone seems to lean toward Bilsteins, Rancho 9000, OME, etc......just my .02

I am not getting anything skyjacker. I am getting a Zone BB w/ Zone hydros. I believe they are white, so I think any color should work okay.

Also, you could always buy any color shock boot to add accent.

just my thoughts, but the silver, black, and orange will end up looking sweet! Post some pics if you do it!

Will do. I keep going back and forth on it. I don't know what I am going to do with it.
