Most definitely!

I'm also wishing I hadn't gotten black. It looked great at the dealer because it matched the hard top. Now not so much with all the scratches...

I've thought about camo. It'd might make it easier to touch up too. If I could do it again, would probably get orange or silver.

Silver was nice on my four door. Almost no scratches showed

This is what is going to be protecting my black Rubicon from looking like junk. I should have them on in a few weeks, and will give an installation report.

Interested in how that turns out, and holds up to a couple years of wheeling. Definitely post a link if you start a thread.

Seems like a smart idea. I always thought about getting the side vinyl wrapped. Seems like this company acted on it. Make sure you lmk when you do this. I'd love to see how it works out

Commando green is boring
some thing tells me you haven't been reading this thread.
the point of painting it is to paint it a color i want and will look good even after abuse on the trails, or a color nice enough i won't be dumb with it. if that happens to be a color of a stock jeep then so be it. the point of this thread is for people to tell me which color they like, maybe ill like that color too. i pointed out that i might not want a stock jeep color just because it wouldn't be original, but if i like one then oh well.

I stick to my original post... two tone, bright and as obnoxious as hell on the lower half, and stock black up top (and inside)

Like I said in your build thread, I think a matte Olive Drab green would look awesome. Ever think about a Jurassic Park paint scheme now that you've got a 2 door?

Nonetheless, get that bumper painted!!!!!!
