If you only want it close and not perfect,get the paint code off your VIN tag and either get it from these places and more(do a search for "Auto Paint touchups") in a rattle can paint
http://www.paintscratch.com/
http://www.automotivetouchup.com/touch-up-paint/jeep/


Or use the code on your VIN and your local auto stores Usualy carry rattle can paint for factory matches made by Duplicolor "perfect match" brand.

Or if you have a spray gun setup,take it to a local auto body supplier and they generaly have a computer that will take a pic of the current paint and give a mix code to mix a batch for a close match and/or just use your paint code.

No matter which way you go,just be warned that your factory paint is 21 years old and in time paints turn different shades in time,so a perfect match will be very hard to get for it,but it can be close.

Your best bet before you do any of it is to at least do a good color sand and buff to bring out the best of what paint you already have to help it match better too
