Can anyone please confirm that the paint provided by PaintScratch.com is a match? Thank you!

There's a guy in this thread that posted the paint code from his Jeep.

Ravenworks You can also go to an automobile paint supply store and they will make custom make rattle cans for you.

Wesboy Don't know if this helps, but the code for the original factory top is on the ID plate (or whatever it's called) on the floor of the tub between the drivers door and the drivers seat.

There's a whole bunch of codes for the different colors over the years, these are the only ones I know...

VJN - Softtop White
VJU - Softtop Spice
VJX - Softtop Black
VKN - Hardtop White
VKU - Hardtop Spice
VKX - Hardtop Black

For example, here's a pic of the ID plate on my TJ showing VJU - so mine originally had a Spice Softtop.
