Give your opinions to help me choose.

They're all so beautiful in my opinion.

Darker orange for sure. Would look better with a black bumper too.

Yep.

I like blue (my jeep is re painted Capitol blue), but that blue is a bit light for my taste. Orange is my second favorite color on a vehicle and I like darker colors in general.

The darker orange is "Crush" on the JK's. I like it a lot. Most of my friends are automatically saying red. I think now it's between those two... But I originally wanted to get yellow...

Don't do red, red isn't very unique.

Are you going to paint it or have someone else do it? I would go and look at paint chips. I spent a good 30 min at my local paint supply shop looking through every shade of blue imaginable, but there was just that one that spoke to me and stood out from the rest.

I have no clue. I used paint codes and mocked all of these up in Photoshop. I'm 16. It'll take a while. It won't be cheap, but I've got a few hookups. They're factory paint codes, so I shouldn't have to do all of that.

I don't know, I did it myself. In paint alone I spent about 450$ and another 200$ on body work. For a simple sand and spray I would expect around 1000$.

Why limit yourself to factory paint codes?

I kind of like it because it's different. You see red cars, green cars, blue cars, white cars, black cars, silver cars, yellow cars, but very rarely do you see an orange vehicle like that. It stands out. It attracts attention. Not many people are into aftermarket stuff for their Jeeps here, so I turn a good few heads. With paint like that, I'll turn that many more.

I'm saying that these are all bold, like me. I've decided on that. They all characterize me. I just want to know what everyone thinks about the actual colors.

Just easier, I guess. I don't know. I'm not really limiting myself. I can't think of any other colors that I'd add to this group.
