What color should I paint my jeep?

OK everyone - I need your help with this one. I currently have a maroon 2001 TJ that, as we speak, is now blasted to bare metal. I'm going into the shop tomorrow to finalize my color choice. For the longest time, Ive wanted to paint it Rescue Green. Now, the finality of the decision is weighing on me and I'm getting second thoughts.

If you could paint your TJ any color, what color do you think would be simply bad ***? Please take the poll below. If your color isn't listed, let me know what it is (and if you can reference a picture, let me know).

P.S. - I will post pics of the jeep after the final rebuild is complete...

The best color to paint your vehicle is a color you like. Why bother with what other people like? It's your Jeep, your money, and your labor.

Yeah - I will ultimately paint it the color I want. I just want to make sure I'm not missing out on any other really cool colors I haven't seen yet...

What is your favorite color? Not the color that you thinks looks good. YOUR FAVORITE COLOR? If you are happy with it, who cares what anyone else thinks.




Impact Orange is as close to my favorite as i could get which i guess would be kabota orange.

So dont talk about impact orange being a bad color, its my favorite.

I liked the old Gunmetal Pearlcoat (not to be confused with Steel Blue on later TJs and early JKs) or Chili Pepper Red on the earlier TJs. I would go for a classic color like that. Impact Orange is cool too.

But I do agree with everyone else that in the end it is YOUR Jeep so my opinion and everyone else's doesn't matter.

When I rolled mine I was up against the same tough decision. It was a toss up between the factory bright silver metallic and yellow.
I ended up sticking with silver, but I still really like yellow
