Best accent color on a red JK?
 
I just got a flame red 08 JK.

Looking to get some new fenders, grill inserts, and various other things.
I know alot of it would be personal preference. The only combos I have come up with are Red and White, Red and Black (pretty much what I have now) and Red and Yellow.

Yellow seems like it would look too much like McDonalds, and White is just...eh.

Anyone have any pictures of their color combos? I would love to see them!

Lot's of black out there... I think a nice charcoal grey would look sweet and be different enough that folks would notice...:cool:

This is true. My fenders are already charcoal grey I guess (its stock).

I'l have to think about that Idea. Green would look too much like Christmas. lol

Can't remember the member but he did blue accents and I thought it looked good on the red.

This may look pretty interesting.....

I color matched the darkest blue off of a BudLight can and sprayed it on all my armor.

I did it to be different then all the thousands of red and black jeeps out there. I also think some kind of dark sandstone or certain shades of brown could look good.

Black/dark gray look the best....but that is what everyone else does. Plus, your top and fenders are already that color...so you are kinda boxed in unless you go big like WatchThis!.

cphilip 06-20-2013 01:11 PM

Black and.... Gold

Hasson151 06-20-2013 01:16 PM

red and... mud

You could do an opposite 10a. Since you have a red jeep make the interior a lighter blue as well as other mods. Don't know how good that'd look but its a suggestion

FIREMEDIC82 06-20-2013 10:39 PM

Thanks for all the suggestions guys! And gals

Mattk11 06-20-2013 10:45 PM

I would use actual rose gold dipped accents. Then I would get my red matted. Shouldn't cost too much.

I am personally getting tired of everyone going with black.

AverageJK 06-20-2013 10:56 PM

Bare metal, just clear coat it. My 2 cents.

I have a feeling lots of people say they are going for the red/black, blue/black, green/black, orange/black, black/ black look simply because most of the items you buy come all ready in black. I bet if nothing came all ready painted or coated we would see more jeeps with different colors. Not a lot of people are willing to blast off a brand new perfectly good powder coat job and repaint something to make it match everything else.

So that being said to me whatever color/ black looks good but still is a cheap, unoriginal, lazy, and overdone way of doing it. I am sure someone will get butthurt and tell me how big of an ass I am for giving my opinion that doesn't match 95% of the forum soon, even if what I said might make since if you think about it.

Definitely go with Blue, it looks great. Then you can put a big spider on the hood for the Spider-Man theme.

I think I saw a blue spidershade on a red flame here and it looked sharp.

I'm going with blue with my billet.

RemoJK 06-21-2013 10:00 AM

I always liked that desert tan or khaki with red. Always wanted a khaki colored soft top

Jeep757 06-21-2013 10:07 AM

Wonder how the blue would look with the Deep cherry red color

Gold. Red and gold is a classic combo.

Some people refer to the gold as bronze. Anywho, classic, and looks great.
