How about plastidip or rhinolining/monstalining/raptorlining your jeep?\

Whites cool but with my 95 it would be a toss up between lime green and flat back oooo.... or maybe both? Not sure if I want the cops remembering my rig or not!

Original color definitely easiest but I've really like some jeeps I've seen that have rhino/monsta/dura - lined the inside and outside of their rigs. If you off road at all, scratches are less of an issue, and you can touch up easily. Just a thought.

as you can see,most people think their jeeps color is the way to go. When I am undecided I look at other vehicles that I see to help me decide.Seeing them in person is much better to me than looking at pics. If you care about the future value of your jeep then use a good automotive paint regardless of the color you decide on.I buy and sell a good many jeeps and normally one that has been spray bombed,plastidipped or painted with bedliner does not have the resale value of one with a traditional paint job..

I love that color. Been wanting to paint my 71 GMC Sprint that color. If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the paint and what did it cost you to paint the Jeep!
