Paint ideas?

Might paint my jeep soon, any different paint jobs anyone can think of? I am debating on traditional camo, black completely, snow camo, etc

I think a OD green or a military tan would look sweet

I'm planning on doing desert tan someday.

Snow camo might look pretty cool though...

I saw a Bronco the other day painted with what looked like bed liner. Weird I know, but it looked kinda cool.

if it is a nice TJ and you might sell it someday paint it the factory correct color and finish. you'll recover the cost of the paint job when it is time to sell.

Kinda depends on you age and status- getting old ?, need to fill that middle age crisis-Flame Red, or Lime green, Feel like going unnoticed? flat tan or OD green. Like ugly? (but durable)-bed liner. Depends where you live too. If you are close to coastal areas-black is hotter-but burns off moisture better-and won't rust as early as a light color. Otherwise painting OEM color does make resale better IMO.

Wow a lot of interesting ideas haha! i seen a nice few people mention the snow camo, as well as tan. My jeep is currently bedlined inside and out, so it does have that ugly look already, but that rough texture is what i like. Digital red would be nice as well however i have yet to see a flat red paint. I quite like this as well, so many options!

My tj has spice top and interior. So I have always liked the idea of od green or military tan. I have most of what I need for a 5.9 magnum swap so I have one more idea on a paint scheme that I think would be fitting with the v8. How about a lime green paint job with semi flat broken stripes running down the side just like a 1970's hemi cuda! Maybe add some semi flat black flat fenders. I can see it in my head and it looks good. Whatever you do make it fun. Jeeps are made for having fun!

This looks great and it's almost exactly what i'm going for (yellow instead of green). What kind of paint did you use? Has it held up over the last year or two? any documentation on how you guys did it?

Looks BA

Unless you off road your jeep. Even on trails it'll get scratched. That's why I can't justify $$ on a decent paint job.
