Or Monster Green:

I am leaning more towards the orange mainly because I feel the green has kind of been over done lately in the industry (although I still love it). I am just not sure how well it would look with the Jeep being Khaki, Graphite, and Black.

Which ever color I choose I will most likely paint my calipers and suspension components like the coils, control arms, and maybe the rear diff cover. I am sure I will throw it in on little thing around the Jeep as well. I am also planning on painting my radiator!

Like this:

Thought???
That green is one of my favorite colors but you're right: it's totally outplayed right now. It's even worse with winter and ski clothing. Everyone on the mountains seems to be rocking that color or a blue.

Can you post more info about those turn signal bulbs you used? The light up white as marker lights and amber for the turn signal? What resisters did you need to run with them? Also the headlights you swapped out to, there not the OEM headlights are they ? Either way post a link to them, and are the HID friendly?

In defense of the green, my fiance keeps joking with me telling me that lime green is the hot color this year. I think she's right (been popular in the snow sports crowd in Colorado for a couple years now), but what about painting parts on the rig that are easily painted and switching colors up from year to year? Keep your purchased parts blue since those are readily available, but calipers, springs, under body parts - switch up the color whenever the mood suits ya and keep things interesting...

Correct! The LEDs are duel function, they can be white or amber. So they are white when the lights are on and then blink amber. Except right now, I am only using them as amber signals. I disabled the white function.

I am using a 50W 3ohm resistor on each side.

I originally used them in my 05-07 OEM halogen housings, but now I am using them in the 08-10 OEM HID projector housings. I am using the HID D1S bulbs in 4300K and the OEM ballasts (basically the OEM set up).

Couple of Questions omelet, how did you mask off your MOABs for painting, and where did you get those ORT stickers?

Ha! I just got off the phone from talking my brother through the painting process! If you can wait a day or two I can get you some pics. I typed up a decent how to description in here some where.

You have to have the stickers made. You can use this and take it into your local sticker depot and have them make them for you.

The easiest way is to use that pic and get them made locally.

Yep! I have decided on blue. I just looked at Scott's post, and those are the ones Rob was selling that I missed out on. Hoping to get them this time around!
