What color should I paint my XJ!

Hey guys, so myself being INCREDIBLY indecisive deciding on a paint color has not been easy.... So give me your input!

The interior will be black trim / seats with a Monstaliner Desert Sand on the flooring.

Here are the choices...

Metallic Silver -


Daytona Electric Blue Metallic -


Black Metallic -


Bronze Metallic -


Copper Metallic -

I like the silver first and the blue as a close second.

I'd say Black Metallic or Bronze Metallic.

Blue and black Metallic are bad ***. You could get away with Metallic Silver. The last two are gay.

Either black or silver. The blue is to bright for my tastes and the bronze/copper are ugly as sin

Copper or bronze with color matched 14" 100 spoke rimz

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

I must disagree with Callelle. That bronze would look pretty nice... In my opinion that is

The blue is way too loud. The silver, or the bronze would look good. Of course black is pretty basic, so it's a safe choice.

There's a difference between making it look different and making it look like crap.

I decided on the Blue, but there will be a lot of black in there as well. Bumpers, roof rack, bottom of doors covered in bed liner as well. Hopefully it turns out well! I am sure it will look better than it currently does.

What color? Seriously? Dude, you live in Scottsdale... paint it WHITE! It gets so hot there, Robert Earl Keene even wrote a song about it. I live in the same climate, and all my Jeeps are white. Now. When I moved here 22 years ago, I brought my black Audi with black leather interior. It was horrible; I called it "The Pizza Oven."

Yeah, I know... white is so boring. But a hellava lot cooler!
