I ordered it from armyjeepparts.com Its code is 33070. They have a lot of colors to choose from. They'll send you free samples if you want. I just ordered the spray paint cans and it turned out great.

I used about 5 cans, but I just ordered the case of 12. They give you a discount when you buy more and I wanted extra in case.

I got it because of the color. Not because it was a ford color. That's the thing about a jeep...you can customize it however you want. I like it and don't need anyones approval.

Thanks it turned out great. I was wanting to use the original willyz color but my buddy I wheel with has one. So I tried to be different yet have my own thing. I just used the rattle cans but if you use the satin finish it'll shine and last longer. But the flat rattle can you can touch up anytime.

My '95 I just picked up about a week ago has a flat red tough coat paint job on it. I like it because I don't have to worry about scratching or nicking it up. That's one tough paint job. I'll get photos posted when I can take some. The weathers been pretty crappy around here.

I'm currently repainting mine OD with just the rustoleum od spray paint. I'll be taking it further than most though im that I will be painting the correct markings that they had in WW2 in Italy in the 10th mountain division (in honor of my grandfather, it'll be exact to his unit).

Hope the picture loads. But I went a little different route. I took in my XD, that is flat dark earth into the paint shop and color matched the frame. I painted the tailgate to make sure I liked the color, I think it looks good. Now to get the body painted before the weather turns crappy. I have also painted the top black but don't have a picture on my iPad yet. To follow if anyone wants to see it.

My original windshield frame was rotted out so before I put it on I painted it FDE also. Going to rebuild the door hinges and paint them black as well.
So much to do and work keeps getting in the way of jeep time.
