I don't know what the black looks like, but I think you should go with the red.

Red. It's made for Jeeps.

White FTW.

Red fades (mine is more pinkish now than red)

Black is a PITA to keep clean

White always looks clean with very little work, isn't as prone to fading, and it looks classic "Jeep" to me.

the golden eagle always looked best on white IMHO. Black would probably be my second choice, and red is a great jeep color, but not with the Golden Eagle. But to each their own.

I always picture the golden eagles in black. I think the black and gold look awesome together.

I have a white jeep and i like the color, but for the golden eagle, I like black better.
