not the techiest thread (what color?)

as some of you know, my jk is pretty wrecked and i figured, well, while every body panel of the jk is being replaced why not repaint it to a different color.
honestly i never really liked black for a jeep. looks good for about a week till the scratches start settling in. plus not 100% a fan of black in the first place

so i'm wondering what's your guys opinion on what color to paint a jeep. right now i have a few ideas. btw pictures make this 10x better
1) blue green (google "superlift sema jk")\
2) a metalic brown? hard to expain but i saw it on a tj and loved it
3) cast iron grey
4) blue candy metallic (it's a ford color that struck my eye)
5) just thinking some shade of darker silver

anywho this thread may be useless. but while we're here

Anvil is pretty sick IMO but I'm partial to white too. I agree. Black is cool but a pain in the @ss with a Jeep.

Two tone, blue (or blueish-green) on the bottom, and stock black up-top. split the line at the hood line. Keep the HT and interior black. (maybe paint the center console/vents to match.

I had a black jeep once. Never again.

FWIW, I think Jeeps need vibrant, bright colors.

I tried like hell to find a Rubicon in Jeeps' dark brown, but there were not any available in my area, so I settled for black. If I ever get it repainted, it will be brown.

Out of those 5 suggestions, I would go with the blue candy metallic. Buts that's because I'm a fan of brightly colored jks.

Although I have had 3 black jeeps, I would have to say the new Granite color is pretty awesome. There was a TJ in my area a few years ago that was painted gunmetal gray, and it looked really sharp.

I vote granite ... I stopped and looked at one on the dealers lot just to see it up close. It is very, very nice.

Personally, I love Commando Green. I'd love it more in a matte finish.
