I also removed the windshield and tailgate so it would be easier for me to sand, prep and paint them. I mixed four quarts of paint together and thinned it all.
Each day these parts got one full coat. The body was the same thing a coat of paint per day.
Prep time for the body was two days or so for me. I do not move too fast these days!
Taken off the tail lights etc etc etc might have been a full (for me) day.
You could completely paint eveything in four of five days depending on the amount of coats and the temps in your painting environment.
Disassembly prep and reassembly will vary from man to man and Jeep to Jeep. But once you get to painting it goes quick.
I think I spent 45 minutes tops painting the entire body to include the hood, and the same time or less for the doors, tailgate and windshield.
