Was thinking a jet black to help accent exterior. Maybe red as well to pop on the inside. We'll see.

Go with a semi gloss black and use krylon fusion with a good primer. And try to avoid any latex style spray paints cause they get that rubbery feeling and stay sticky for at least 24 hours. I did my vents and speaker grills bout a week ago an its still sticky but the black set very nicely

If you use a clear coat on top it will help with the stickiness

I think a dark brown and grey could look pretty sweet.

Should I scuff up interior first? With maybe a 320 before prime, then paint? Also could I use the krypton on the fenders? They have faded

I wouldn't scuff them up, just clean them REALLY REALLY good and use krylon because its designed to stick to plastic. But if you really wanna use a primer I found some a while back at Hobby Lobby that was for plastic. And yes the Krylon will work on the fender flares.

After painting the khaki seats black, I've painted on a longhorn decal to go with my blue accents. Figured they make a longhorn ram, I'd make a longhorn jeep. Fits me.

Who wants to drive the most fun vehicle on the road while sitting in a dark, boring black hole? Reminded me of a funeral too much.
After playing around on here and meeting a few people I came across Lilyeller and his Banana Blast inspired TJ. I knew that he and I shared the "a Jeep must be FUN" concept so I used his painted interior as inspiration.

Since posting pictures of it I have been asked by several people on how to paint the plastic pieces and I know Lilyeller has been asked the same... partially because I asked him myself. lol

Next up.... proper prep. Prep is the key.

How does someone get the center console out? Mines the 2000 Sahara. That's the last thing I have to paint besides the visors, but those won't be an issue.

Thank you, wwch99tj. I've noticed the two bolts on the passenger side bottom. I'll check out the cup holder and shifter boot this afternoon. Again... thanks.

Can I use like simple green to clean it? Or is there something in particular I should use?

I think that looks amazing! With it not being a really bright color like some people are doing on here, it looks factory to me and quite honestly is the kind of look Jeep should have offered in the first place.

I like it but I have a question. Why did you paint the seats rather than dye them? Just curious. We do upholstery as a side business, antique furniture and such but have done two custom show trucks for a friend and one of the things he wanted was to leave the upholstery in one because it was a brand new truck, but change the color of the fabrics and do custom embroiders.

It honestly just seemed like an easy fix. Something I could do on my own. It worked great. Looks like I have brand new seats and they still feel like cloth (used fabric paint).

Awesome. Never used it before. Shoot us an occasional update on how it holds up.

I had a set of Iggee seat covers, bought about 4.5 - 5 years ago. It quickly faded under the sun with top off, but I painted them with Duplicolor vinyl and cloth paint (might have those words backward) and it held up longer than the factory color did. I just installed a new set of Iggee covers, and when they fade, they'll get painted as well.

The center bezel changed 03 up
The knee panel under the steering wheel changed in 02(?) to not having the headlight switch
Other than that its the same...

I'm thinking about painting my door interiors. They're the half door and they are pretty faded on the top side. I guess due to sun? I guess just prep it good and tape it off and I'll be good?
