Show me your Brown CJ

I am looking for ideas.

Want to go Black interior and stick with the blacked out wheels.
Want to see how they look with black top, black roll bar, etc.

I am looking at the Corbeau seats in vinyl.

Thanks for the help.

Yes, I saw the color on a Lexus SC 450 special edition on a bright Sunday afternoon in Manhattan and it was awesome.

Tiger Mica 4T2

The seats are black high backs, I think Rugged Ridge Super Seat. I have not driven it yet so I have no idea how comfortable the seats are.

I do...PRP makes some premium quality seats. They were pricey but after wearing out 2 sets of cheapo replacement seats in under 18 months I decided to shell out the money for some good ones and these have been GREAT!

The only thing that is an issue right now is I am without a center console because I ordered an extra wide drivers seat (I'm 6'0" and about 255lbs...). I did find a Suzuki Samurai center console thats more narrow I'm going to modify to put in eventually though.

Here is my history with brown jeeps:

My high school ride- '83 CJ7:




Notice the sweet sheepskin seats.


The day I brought my '79 CJ7 home from SC. 9 hour test drive went well:


I hated this top color, and it was ripped in a couple places. Tossed it when I moved. I still have the doors if anyone is interested in them:





New Toyos:



Most recent photos:






I want to get rid of the seats, and get new wheels. I will be getting a black top eventually, but I don't really drive it in bad weather, and it gets by with the Bikini 90% of the time.

If you need a very very nice brown, than look to BMW "marakesh brown metallic". This colour is awesome.
I´ll paint my CJ in this colour.
But you must see this colour in the sun light, not only at a picture.
Looking for a BMW dealer and look.

My old '77 Levis I had when I was in the service. A small detail near rear of hood, being a Steppenwolf fan, an friend/artist painted the snarling dog from the Steppenwolf Live LP, turned out pretty nice, sorry I have no close up of this fine work. The color was standard in '77 with the pinstripes on the hood and fenders.


The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep
We cannot accurately judge the trajectory of a speeding critter (cat, dog, sasquatch)
Record heat waves and floods only occur when we visit that area

That looks great, and the picture makes it look similar to the posted BMW color.

Wow, that is a good looking '7!

I assume the paint/decals is OG?

How did you find this one (craigslist, ebay, etc.)?

Ridge Runners!

Haven't seen a set of them for years!

How did you like them?
