What is the name of this orange paint color?
 
I assume its a factory Jeep color? Looks too light to be Orange Crush, and maybe not quite Dozer Orange? Or, is it Dozer? I want to paint my Jeep this color, but first, I gotta know the name of it, then I can buy the paint!

Any auto paint store will have it.

Be prepared, paint isnt cheap. Im willing to bet that between some sealer/ hardener/ reducer, a gallon of that color with reducer and a gallon of clear, hardener, and reducer is close to $1500 just for the materials.

Yeah, I'm all too aware of how much it costs to do a nice paint job. When I sprayed a custom paint job on my pro street Duster a few years ago, I spent close to $3,000 on paint and all materials. There's a lot less surface area on a Jeep, so the paint cost should be closer to your dollar estimate.

I know any auto paint store can make it, but they need to know the year and the name, so they can look up the paint code.

They will have year/ make specific color books that you can find that color in if its a factory jeep color.

Maybe closer to a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder orange?? Really depends on how the vehicle was photographed and how the color was reproduced electronically. I have a Dozer, and it never looks the same twice in photographs.

I found another pic of what appears to be the same Jeep, minus a couple fender decals. That looks like Orange Crush to me.
