Camo Paint Jobs

I saw this picture:





...and ever since, I myself have been tossing the idea of a camo paint job around. I've never done one before, nor have I ever seen one being done, so I have no idea how they pull off the look. Anyone have any pointers or experience from doing it before?

Yeah, pretty much looks super kick ***. If I do go through with it, I want it to look like that, not some of the crap I've seen running around. That's why I'm trying to do my research.

I've seen them take a big leaf and use it for a stencil and spray paint it, as a final touch. Personally I like the Russian snow camo, its gray/blk/white
But green/brn/tan look good also

Hey All,
Many times I have thought that the Cherokee would look good in Camo. However, having said that my paint is in near pristine condition, so it would be silly at this point. I will wait until it is all scratched to rat shiz and go from there.

Found this site, looks interesting! They even have a Cherokee for a demo model.

Looks almost like a mil. spec. CARC paint job. I really like it. The wife hates it. My paint is starting to look a little rough in a few areas. Did some research and found an interesting link that may help someone trying to do a paint scheme like this. http://www.czarnik.net/joe/My_Stuff/...Camo Paint Job

It's not an XJ but the paint looks cool.
