New Paint Ideas

Hey Jeepers,

I am getting ready to do a professionally paint job on my YJ and I am not sure of what color I want to do. I have a few ideas, but I would like to get some input from other members and possibly see some pics of paint jobs and even factory paint.

I want something with a natural tone. I'm thinking of the following colors:

Something in the Green Spectrum
Dark Forest Green
Black
Grey/Silver/Gunmetal


I've attached three pictures; the grey/silver Jeep with light Grey hardtop was taken from the Jeepforum gallery. I was wondering if anyone new what color this is. The other greyish one is from our YJ gallery.

I have added a picture of my jeep right now. In case anyone is interested in this shade of blue.

I am open to most suggestions though! Please post pics of your wranglers (CJ, YJ, TJ, JK). Only colors that I have decided against are:
  • Yellow
  • Red
  • Purple
  • Bright Greens

Thanks bud! Been looking around for the color for a while. You mind posting a pic of your jeep with that color?

Thanks for all the posts with pics and info. Picking paint for Margot (YJ) has been a similar process as my woman picking out a dress, maybe worse, a pair of shoes! Ha

I have found a few colors that I really like. They are:
Shale Green
Rescue Green
Light Khaki Metallic

I've attached pictures of the three colors of other jeepforum members' rides. I hope that nobody is offended. Please let me know and I'll take them down.

I also am trying to pinpoint a mate burnt orange color. The last attached silver YJ looks a little different than other light khaki paint jobs, does that paint change colors depending on sun and viewing angle?
