looking for a offset color

Hi All
I have a black jeep.
What offset color would look good with it?

I'm assuming you mean accent color? I think black on black on black looks the best.

Black & white are universal colors where any color looks good so long as there is sufficient contrast between them. But that's as far as I'll go for decorating a Jeep advice goes, my expertise on that is zilch. And watch it, we have pulled man cards for questions like this.

At the risk of losing my man-card, I'll suggest blue. I think a "black & blue" Jeep kinda sums things up in a nice little theme.

I bought "Metallic Anthracite" plastip and applied that to my grill screen, Jeep logo and trail rated badge. When the weather gets warmer, I'll do my wheels and front tow hooks. Nice thing about dipping? If you don't like it, you can always take it off!

I went with red as my accent for my otherwise all black Jeep. My other choices would be bright blue or neon green.
