I say keep em! they look so beautiful on there! But really ive seen black doors on red jeeps and they look pretty good, but imo i think red jeeps look best with red doors. Of course i think every jeep looks best with no doors.

also could not find a pic of red jeeps with black door but i found the opposite XD

Just do a semi gloss black don't try to color match them if you can't because they will look stupid imho. So ya black would be cool or even linex if there is no future for you color matching them.

There is a reason bodies and doors are color-mathced for thousands of years. Any other way looks bad.

I'd spray them with a matching 'Flame Red' you can have put into an aerosol can at any automotive paint shop. The TJ's red is hard to match unless you use the correct Flame Red that any auto paint shop can easily and cheaply mix up for you and put into an aerosol spray can. It will be a lacquer which will dry hard. Enamel paints like Rustoleum never really get hard and they are much more easily damaged.

A self-etching primer, only available at an auto paint store, will go a long way to making for a better rattle-can paint job.

Paint them flame red! Dual color is ridiculous, IMO.

If you decide to rattle can them and want to go red... Autozone sells Duplicolor Perfect Match in Flame Red.


It's a pretty good match.

How does the paint hold onto the interior?, bc i know it's a textured surface and didn't think it would hold too well.

Not sure yet, I just did it yesterday. lol

But I did Krylon Fusion first, then roughed it a bit and sprayed the Perfect Match over that. Kind of using the Fusion as a primer.
