Ok I need some input from you guys! I want to through a little color into this thing. Originally I wanted to do red. Like paint my calipers and other little things. But that seems to be the fall back color a lot. So I am thinking one of these.

Hemi Orange:




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???

I honestly think the Mopar blue would look best on your color scheme. The Hemi orange and green are too loud IMO.

Ya I was thinking that too since I already have that going under the hood, but blue is not a favorite of mine.

I'm gonna just say no. I don't think the orange or the green would look good on the suspension. Maybe the calipers and little touches, but I think both of those colors would be too much on the coils, etc.

My calipers have been red for about 5 years now but I'm thinkin I'm gonna paint them black with silver lettering. Just basic and clean.

Whatever you end up doing I'm sure will look good. Just my opinion. Maybe on a black rig. If you want put that amount of paint underneath I would go with the Mopar Blue. Not my favorite either but I think it compliments the Khaki best.

That's what I was thinking It sucks that we don't have a big flat radiator right behind the grill. The tranny cooler (I think that is what it belongs to) is right in the middle. I wanted to do the Mopar "M" behind the grill and ORT in the lower grill. Not sure that will work out though.

^^^ That is KILLER!!!^^^


Ok a couple new ideas! Use the Mopar blue paint for my accent color and get these:





Then for the radiator I could do ORT with UV paint and install some UV LEDs behind the grill!!! That way I can turn the LEDs on to really set it off when I want


? ? ? ? ?

Go with your gut nate. I don't think you have ever let any of us down lol. Mopar blue would look good with khaki. Your shortly wires are blue right?

Ah, such are the dimena's that only a khaki could understand - We have so many color options to work with - Id say go with the Orange, Nathan.

Ya they are blue, along with the Volant logo, the ARB compressor, and the Fox shocks logo. So I think that would be the best. I wanted to go with one of the others because it would be loud and really pop, but I agree that it might be too much. The blue is a little more mellow which is why I didn't really like it as an option. But it is probably the best option for the Khaki. Especially since the wife doesn't think I should introduce a new color to the mix This way I am not technically introducing a NEW color since I already have it Which gives me free reign to throw a little more color around.
