What should I paint me cj5?

I have to do alot of body work on my cj5 and will have to redo the paint. The only problem is that I can't decide which one to do. Right now it's a tan base with dark green leaves and black spots on it. I'll either redo this or make it white with tribal design decal bands. I've found some that are cheap and easy to replace if/when they get tore up. Either paint job will done with rattle can paint. That's what the current one is. What do you people think?

I think it was something like $4 a can. Not bad, and it's actually automotive paint, which does make a big difference if you plan to get dirt on it.

I was unable to find the can in the garage, but I do remember it was the darkest green that was available at Autozone.

My brother's truck is school bus yellow, and the factory paint on my jeep was some kind of pale yellow.

Black is used to much, but at one time I considered black with blue or yellow streaks.
