Decided to get rid of the scratched up forest green color and give my XJ some military look to it. I used Krylon Camo OD spray paint to get the job done. She is not done yet but just about. I still need to give it a few more coats and then I am stenciling a white star on the hood, 2 small stars on the rear quarter panel, and put some numbering and lettering on the side of the hood to give her the Willys look. Ill get finished pics up when she is done. Pics are not so good, they make the OD look grey. hopefully the finished ones are better.
I also plan on getting a CB and antenna to go from the rear light area tied to the front of the roof rack.
Also, got my new 33'' BFG ATs on.
Orange on the hub caps are going asap
Anyone got any ideas to make it more military style Im all ears.

the paint looked pretty good before, better than mine anyway...my 93 is super scratched up and paint is worn away. I am not a fan of flat paint jobs unless the previous paint is toast....Ill take glossy any day.

I dig this idea. To make it even more military looking...paint yoru soft 8's OD Green as well. And the new military look is subdued markings...not white. So consider painting the numbers and such forth on the side in Flat Black instead of white. I was going to do this to my TJ at one time. I was gonna linex the tub in OD colored bedliner, paint the wheels to match the body, and have the seats covered in OD canvas from an old GP Medium tent I have layin round, I even considered 17" flat steelies n NDT tires...but then i had a kid, and had to get a family car...hence the xj
I know what you mean about the green that it was. It shows all the scratches and swirl marks. I detailed a truck once that was almost the same color and it was swirly as hell...until I was finished with it.
