Should I paint lower door panels?

The outside of my CJ7 is forest green and the inside is herculined. The majority of trim pieces of the interior are a blend of tan, spice, almond etc. I just got done restoring a hard top and fiberglass window uppers which I painted adobe, yet another shade of tan. I've ordered new half door interior panels which come in black which would match the herculiner.
Should I paint the door panels adobe as well like the windows and top or should I leave them black? I'm leaning towards black as it keeps the half and half blend of tan and black but the tan doors would look good too....

Thanks

I'm starting to lean towards tan as well.

I'd match the rest of the interior...... Black. With the top and door uppers off, it would blend in. Better yet, black with tan accents.
