Camo my Jeep

Anyone ever used the stick-on camo clad stuff like what is at www.camoclad.com

Wondering if it has held up as well as advertised and did you do it yourself? Any pictures?

I never really understood why your vehicle needs to be camo any way. Been hunting Iowa and Colorado my whole life and I have never had a camo vehicle...Guess I was just lucky right....seems like a waste of time and money but only you can decide if it's worth it its your jeep...

I just think it looks good. My ZJ is already 11 years old and the current paint is already scratched from the trails so it's not like a new showroom finish anymore. I also hunt, but I take the truck for that. That was until last year when it would not start that morning so I bored the wife's new Honda Accord. Put the deer right in the trunk, suprisingly it fit well and even closed if you pushed on the head. The wife took it well and even took my picture with the deer in the trunk.

No one's done it? They have a couple of pictures of a CJ and an XJ on the site above that is camoed out, and it looks good.

If I were to ever camo my vehicle it would be the USMC pattern. It is proven that it is the best in personal camoflage.

The rounded stuff is obsolete. It can be picked up a lot faster than the new USMC stuff by the human eye, it's UV and IR clean (no dyes or fabrics in it will show up brighter on optics).

That leafy pattern makes me ill. If you really wanna hide your vehicle, use cammy netting. You will need to add local shrubs/brush/leaves to it but if you do it right it'll be a lot harder to spot you.

Plus what do you do when you're on the trail and a tree branch or a rock peels that sticker off your jeep?

It is not to hide the vehicle, just to be different. And as far as sticks or rocks peeling the sticker, I will do the same thing I do when they scratch my paint....

Sounds good

I priced it out for my CJ7 and it will run about 450 which is alot cheaper than repainting. Plus, the end result should be something unique.

Let me know if you go for it. I'm curious about it holding up but the ripstop tape seems to indicate that it will take a beating.

I have seen one jeep here that had it done. I only seen him the one time but it was a cj 5 and it looked like he had the realtree pattern. It looked sharp and I have been thinking about doing it ever since. The only reason I havent is because I still have a good paint job on it and there is some other stuff I would like to do first. I say go for it, I saw one first hand and it was sharp.

i want to do digital camo on my xj. i tried it out first on a hood i got for 10 bucks. first, if done right it would look really good. you also have to get the right colors. i would suggest 4 of them. i did 3 and the colors did not go together as i planned. i used squares that measured 3.5 in. i would use like a 2 inch square. finally lots of time to ge the design just right. because my hood looked bad. really bad.

This guy did the same thing but went with a different manufacturer. PM him and see how his has been holding up and what not.

Can't say I'd do it to my jeep (I like my OD green setup) but I like the look of it. Definitely unique.

i was thinking about doing something with my old 94 XJ but my dad wanted to go cheap so i think if it happens were just buying spray paint and going old school like the camo on the old military blazers.
