We need more info, what size tires, have you added any chrome, any bumpers, top color, wheels, lots of stuff like that. I like forest green w/ black hardware, Yellow w/ black hardware, sparkly blue and chrome, Camo w/ either black or camo hardware.

Re: Paint scheme for CJ7

All I know is I gotta Jeep to play with - Every part on it is subject to abrupt replacement per my current mindset and all the parts are ugly anywhoo. It is a Levi Special but soon won't be - I've taken a vow of poverty - the Jeep will help.

Re: Paint scheme for CJ7

Hey no problem. Glad to help and see someone new on the board. There is a cj5 running around that is orange with black hardware. That jeep looks great. Shame it is a road queen. Good luck and let us know what you do.

Re: Paint scheme for CJ7

OK, I noticed you live in the SW, so definitely a light color, that desert pinstriping shows up big time on darker colors (unless you have a wife or girlfriend that for some reason just loves to use that buffing wheel). Something with a white base and maybe some yellow would be a good choice for the SW. Another color that doesn't show scratching is tan. These suggestions are if you are really going to wheel the Jeep, if its a road queen, anything goes!
