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).

My parents used to have a 98 deep amethyst color jeep with the very rare white top. It was a great looking color in the sun. It was traded in on a 2001 green Sahara. My mom needed the AC!!

^I agree...it's a very hard purple to pick out...any production numbers on that color? I can't say I've seen one ever in person.

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.
