Hmm. Not too bad but it's not something I would do.

Photoshop? It looks cool. Try olive drab green. I think an OD Green or a flat Desert Sand Tan JK would look pretty good.

I'd pass on the OD green, but desert sand tan would look very nice.

Here in SoCal it is the thing with us off road guy's. Looks great but I would not do it due to the fact that it does get hot.
It is a pretty cool process though. I've seen it done as a wrap and at a paint shop with a clear coat over it to protect it.
Hey Clifford what the hell is meh? School me Hommer.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

It looks like it is made out of clay or playdoh.

The flat black look was huge a year ago at SEMA, and mostly gone this year. A few flat black sports cars.

I understand that true flat paint jobs scratch very easily.

Lotus did a neat one recently. They use some sort of flat coating - they described it as "rubberized" for most of the car, and then a stripe of glossy black.

Eh...it's looks alright I think.
It's nice to see something different.

Don't think I'd do it to a brand new Jeep though.
But then again, I wouldn't buy a JK anyways.
