Thinking of painting my Jeep

Hi everyone,

I am a new jeep owner. Just bought a 1998 Wrangler Saharra Automatic, full doors, dark green with tan soft top.

I am thinking of painting the Jeep from the Dark Green to Desert Gold Pearl. Does anyone think I could get a decent paint job for $3,000. ???


Thanks

3k is about right.. but finding a shop to do it will be the hard part, or at least it was for me when I wanted to paint our jeep a different color.

Unless you have a lot of body work to take care of, $3000 should be enough to paint it whatever color you want at a good paint shop... At least is was the last time I looked into it (5 years ago in Michigan).

The price depends on what color you want it painted and body work, dents tears etc. Also if your wanting to repaint it a whole diffrent color depends on what color the jeep is now and what all you want painted like door jams underhood all that stuff. Black and white are the cheapest colors you can buy but red is the most expensive, red takes the most to make it. My fanily owns a Paint and Body business thats how i know all of this. If you have anymore questions ill do my best to help you. also a pretty mcu all around GOOD paint job should start about 2000 and than go up from there.
