Need Help Deciding on New XJ Color (Monstaliner)

Ok, so I think I am going to paint the XJ with Monstaliner this Spring or Summer, but I need help with picking the color. I want at least 2 colors. A main color to take the place of what is currently Gray and then another color for the rockers and parts of the hood after installing my LeBaron louvers. I might just stick with 2 colors or I might use Gray for the rockers and whatnot and then still do the sliders and bumpers in black. Really not sure yet, so I need your help in deciding, or at least narrowing it down.

Here are all of the colors in the running....



Colors are .....

Midnight Special, Smurfadelic, Outbreak
Predator, Apocalypse, Detention
Lady In Red, Road Rash, Blood Bath
Black, Medium Quartz Gray, Pyroclastic

My son's choice is Midnight Special with some combination of one of the Grays and/or Black, which is the idea for all of the colors at this point. A color and some combination of one of the Grays and/or Black.



Wife's Choice is Lady In Red



Daughter's choice is Blood Bath...



And I think I'm leaning towards Blood Bath or this one.... Outbreak



But just when I think I'm narrowing it down I change my mind and all of them are in the running again. Here are the others that I dig.........

Smurfadelic...



Road Rash...



Predator...



Detention...



Apocalypse...



Then the other colors are black (obviously), Pyroclastic is the darker grey, and then Medium Quartz Grey is the lighter Grey.


HELP! I need opinions and possibly someone that is decent with photoshop.


So, vote for your color of choice. Then let me know what combination of grey and/or black I should use and where.

After I get that far in the decision making process then I'll have to decide on what color for the tierod, which is currently metallic red, and the roll cage.

The other option is to just leave everything as is, but touch it up, and go with metallic red for the roll cage. You can vote for that option as well.

The pics of the colors aren't exact. You can go to monstaliner's page to get a better idea of the true colors.

I'm not really concerned with keeping it clean. It is very far from a show Jeep. It's just a trail rig.

Can you hook me up with some pics. Just post them in here. That goes for everyone. If you have already gone this route please post up pics.

I don't mind dirty but the spots of bird poop and various unknown stains bug me. I

I guess this is inherent of a textured surface.

It can't be as bad as my rattle can bedliner that is on there right now. The texture of that stuff is like sandpaper. When I first painted it I walked to close to it and it gave me a brush burn on my arm.

I'd take a good look through the Monstaliner threads and see the color outcomes on actual vehicles first. I was dead set on Predator for my exterior until I saw it on an XJ and I'm so glad I hadn't spent the money on it.

Also I think 3+ colors is going to look weird on an XJ because they're so small unless you do the third color just on the interior. That's what I plan on doing now, one color outside and another in. Haven't figured out which though yet.

I'm definitely going to have 2 colors on the exterior. I don't want color matched flares or grill, so that's where the gray or black comes in, as well as the rockers, rear quarter panel armor, sliders, and flares. I think that some of the colors look better with the lighter or darker gray than they do with black. I just wasn't sure if I should still keep the bumpers, grill, and sliders black and only do the gray on the body (rockers, rear quarter panel armor, parts of the hood, and possibly the flares.

Oh, and I already sprayed the interior with black U-Pol Raptor. That isn't being redone.
