What color is my Jeep *Edit with Picture*

I have a 99 TJ. I bought it used about a month ago. Its like a dark red color - almost a maroon, but maybe a little bit of orange in there. I don't know what DC called the color. Anyone know?

Sounds like "Chili Pepper Red

It's what I have; it was only offered in 1998 and 1999. It's a very dark red that many people do mistake for maroon, especially if the Jeep is dirty! LOL!

For '99 there were 2 Red colors offered: Flame Red & Chili Pepper Red
The Chili Pepper Red was the darker of the two, looked maroon depending on the light hitting it. The Flame red was brighter, more or less like what you find on a sports car. The Chili was dropped for '00.

My information is based on the TJ brochures that I have...

My guess would be the Flame Red. My friends Chilli-Pepper red is pretty dark.

I kind of looks flame red in the pic, but it is darker than a flame red. I think it's the chilli pepper. I remember Dodge having that color on other cars in 99. Thanks guys.

That's the only pic I have right now. I'm convinced it's chilli pepper, but I will post some more pics tomorrow from different angles. I needed to know because I want to pain my headlight bezels the body color.
