Top color on a Black Wrangler

So I purchased a Jeep this past weekend. Black 03 Sahara. The top is in poor condition. I impulsively bought a black top off of amazon because it got great reviews.

I was looking closer at my jeep and I can't figure out if the original top is gray or not. It is faded to hell because the jeep belonged to a guy in Texas.

I am attaching a picture of my faded top and the top I purchased. Do you think black is the right color for a black wrangler, or did I make a bad decision? I know it is based on opinion, but what do you guys think?

Looks like your old top is a Khaki top. That is the color soft top I have on my black TJ.

Thanks...Dave. I didn't realize that it is khaki. I might stick with the black, still unsure, but that definitely helps me understand the colors.

Black would look good. What top did you get? Hopefully a rampage frameless.

The color is actually called khaki diamond. It's a cross between khaki and black diamond. I plan to get one this summer if I ever sell my rampage black diamond frameless.

Oops my bad, viewing on a phone. Yeah, that pic isn't khaki diamond. I personally likely vehicles murdered out but unless I have my jeep wrapped in matte black or painted black, the green and tan combo looks pretty good to me. Probly 19 years of military life helps with subdued colors and the green and tan look. To each his own.

Lighter colors are cooler than black tops is the only thing. Cooler inside temperatures keep the plastic dash and other interior pieces from cracking.

Go for the neon pink look man. Its what all the cool people are doing jk. I think the black will look cool but will be hotter than hell.
