Military TJ

I was needing some input from other jeepers. I am wanting to paint my TJ eather olive drab green or desert tan both of them flat. What do you guys think? should I or keep it red. I want it to reflect the military history of the jeep, and myself. is it a good Idea or not?

Desert tan. Or you could go a lil older and do the "chocolate chip" desert tan.

Be sure to paint a white star on the hood.

Tan!! Much better than green, and you could do ammo boxes inside that are green.

You have a jeep with one year old factory paint job, leave it alone.

The paint job is horrendous. I can't wait for my eventual re-painting. If I look at mine wrong it chips.....but let's not turn this into a "my paint job is bad, too" thread.

I vote for desert tan with black lettering. I'd get a star for the hood and serial numbers and everything.

If you really wanted to get into it, though, you should get somebody to make a canvas top like the old MBs and GPWs!
