I myself own a 98 purple TJ and im beginning to think that im the only one on account that i havent seen another one around or really any pictuers so please let me know im not the only one and that i have some bros out there
I have never seen a purple CJ, YJ, TJ or JK unless custom paint job...was purple even a factory option? Get your build sheet from Jeep and see what your factory paint code was (if you don't know where to find it on the Jeep itself).
It only looks purple'ish in direct sunlight. I actually drove 3 hours away to buy this jeep under the impression it was blue. It was listed as blue and even looked blue in the pictures as it does here. Anyway I get there and I look at it real hard and tell my wife, is that, purple? Anyway we got a good deal on it so I brought her home.
I tried to look for the color code but the sticker on my door is hard to read, but it looks like PCM or maybe DCM. I looked at some touch up paint and this was the color name: Deep Amethyst Pearl Clearcoat.
Mine is a 99 deep amethyst love it! But one time I was with my husband having pizza and there was a group in there lookin out the window debating if it was purple, blue, or black and came over and asked me..if I remember correctly they took bets. Fun times..
