Looks great, nice detail.

1993YJr I have a few questions. What size tires and lift? I assume those are stock yj rims.

87 Florida YJ I have to give all the credit to another fellow Jeeper named rmeier. I saw a picture of his ride on this forum and thought the paint was the perfect color. And it is. Almost every day someone asks if my jeep is milatary issue lol. The paint is from ARMY JEEP PARTS INC. It's #33070 LUSTERLESS WWII 1941-1945. I've never painted a jeep before but it came out perfect just using cans. I highly recommend this product if you are building a milatary ride. As far as the tires I ALSO 'borrowed' the info from rmeier. They are ROADIAN MT's which I got from Walmart of all places. At $100 a pop I couldn't be happier with them. This started as a weekend toy for Florida but soon became my daily driver. I just can't stay out of this thing. If you need any more information just ask.

Simmuh99902 Anmar llc from conover, NC makes the actual desert color paint for the military. Its called cummins beige laquer. I used to work for a place to paint engine parts. A significant amount of which go to the US army.
