Silver LJ, secondary color?

Do anyone have any secondary color for a bright silver LJ? Im rebuilding my front and rear bumper, changing to tubefenders and building a cage. Its a bit boring when its all black but not sure what choices i have...

Not exactly the answer you're looking for... But for the fenders you could keep the silver. Yes, you could have it professionally painted, but I also had decent results recently painting my rockers with duplicolor spray paint matched to the silver of my Jeep. There is a slight difference in color, but you only notice it if the sun is on it just right, or you looking really closely. But if you do end up finding a nice two-tone color let me know, I'll copy you unashamedly.

I have the same issue. I was thinking of going with a different shade of grey for the grill. Also considering a shade of blue nothing bright or obnoxious.

Like the look of your LJ I got the half doors for summer, Rampage soft top, AEV rims (like yours, they bead locks?)

I accented w/ black tube "lips" on the MC tube fenders w/6" flares after I painted the fenders matching silver.

The chrome grille doesn't work for most on these forums, and I agree with that on any color, except silver. Just my thing.

Black out the grill and piping on the tube fenders, like BimotaBruce, and be done with it.

They are Hutchinson Rockmonster. Its beadlook on both sides. Really like the black tubing on the fenders, will look in to that.

Sweet LJ, I'm in the same boat as you but with white. I'd keep it all some combination of black and silver to keep it clean and classy looking. What fenders are you going with?

Totally agree. More than two colors that are significantly different gets WAY too busy.

Instead of black I have seen it done with silver/od green and it looks good.

Other choice is to keep it mostly silver/black with highlights of another color, my favorites are anodized blue and red. I've also seen a silver/black tj with a bright green cage and it also was cool. sorry no pics.
