I was going to change the color of my Jeep when I had it repainted a few years ago to forest green. But I decided to leave it the original color because it is different. It has grown on me and I can't ever imagine changing the color now.

There are alot of good colors out there. Mine is hunter green and I like a color called Deep Amithist, which is a dark dark blue looks black at night. Or wine orcade which is a purple shade

Mine is dark blue, and I have to say it's the color I'm sticking for now. All my mods have the BLACK or blue style them, "black is cheaper then chrome doncha know "
But I have to agree wetodddid, My next Jeep will be Yellow, I plan on adding chrome and black colors to it, The Techno Bumble Bee. )
Just an idea.

Metallic burnt orange looks awesome with black or chrome accesories, and hides swirls and scratches that the darker colors can't.

If you're gonna repaint it I would keep it the original color (white) - otherwise you'll get hell whenever you're trying to sell it. BTW - mine is white too and I think it looks great, just don't put any chrome on it...

Otherwise I would probably go with orange (burnt organge) like QueenYJ said - that looks really cool!

I painted my first truck this awesome shade of deep blue metallic onthe reddish side of the spectrum.. no it wasn't purple it was still blue but it wasn't viper gts either (suggestion 1)
I remember it was one of the blues offered with one of the firebird formulas in the early 90's. It was hot on a truck, never seen a better looking b2. suggestion 2

I've seen a CJ with a silver that closely resemebled audi's. That was interesting.

Viper gts blue is always a hot color, i painted my buddies old bike and damn the thing looked cool.

More blues,, LE5N or LE3P from volkswagen(1987)... though you'll never see a vw with either colors.. One is a rich red metallic, and the other is a deep deep shade of blue with just enough metal flakes to make it change shades in the sun... awesome.

just remember if you're meticulous about the looks of your jeep, dark colors show dents and dirt, light colors hide them.

Here's my realsuggestion. drive around and look for good colors.. sometimes the most boring car has a good color that will make another truck/car look better. Also drive through dealers.. jeep had some of the best colors available in the mid 90's.. i think they would still be the leading edge for colors. VW has a couple shades of blue that look really good. honda has some goldish/brown that looks sweet too..

and finally, take a trip to a paint shop or a place that sells auto paints NAPA martin senour for example has paint chip books.. I would spend a few days looking through them.. and make sure to take the book into the sunlight,, sometimes it helps.

Go to Autozone and buy some of their Camo System paint.I painted mine flat olive drab.It looks pretty good and alot of people have told me they like it. Plus you don't wax it ,it hides scratches pretty good,touchups are a can away, and the best part is total cost 32.oo including tape and sandpaper.

I was thinking about the same question for my Jeep. I was thinking about just repainting the original paint job. By the way does that keep the value up if you go to sell it? I was thinking that years down the road a Jeep with an original paint job might be kind of a commodity what do you guys think? I might do a small alteration and take out the pink stripe, maybe not, I'm comfortable with my man hood, evern though i get teased about the pink. A pic of my Jeep minus the Mickey's.
