Contrasting top colors (not black)

Love my gunmetal pearl and white top . I run spice uppers also

I always liked the look of @tomtaylz 's gray hardtop on a black Jeep.

That combination looks good (y) ... unlike mine. I got a grey hardtop with my silver LJ and I wasn't crazy about it. It looked terrible with the black uppers for my half doors. I eventually painted the hardtop black and later painted the LJ grey

I considered going all silver. I kind of like the "non-contrasting" look. This one is not mine ...

All LJ's look like shit without lifts and 35s IMO.
p.s. I bought an 04' LJ and sold it within a week.

I think it depends on what you use it for. My 04' LJ is my daily year round vehicle (great in the snow) and one of my Jeeps that I camp with. It has a 2" lift with 265s (31.6") tires. 35s on it would look out of character for how I use it. Also, at my age (71) I only have so much energy. Getting in and out of it if it was any higher would be a bit of a chore.

Low & slow ...

I wouldn't mind if my LJ was silver (but not with a grey top). That said, and I think I've posted before, I like you current color combo, that gray (with a little blue/green in it?) with black is pretty sharp, even better with the matching trailer.

Is that blue painter's tape on the rocker guards or are they just ugly?

I'm guessing paint because the hoop on the bumper is the same. Either way ... UGLY!

Just my personal opinion, but royal blue looks good on very few things. It ranks up there with pink on the scale of colors I heavily dislike.

I agree. I honestly don't think mine looks that bad (surely not caca) at stock height with 31's, but to each their own. Mine's a DD and I don't crawl rocks with it (though a little off road isn't an issue), and a 6'5" tall, it's the perfect height for mount/dismount.

Jury's still out on the hardtop color as well as the rubi flare color. Trying to like the gray top color...

I've had people say both a hint of blue or grey. I think I would have preferred green but I think it's blue. It kind of depends on the light.
Either way ... it's Rustoleum enamel straight out of the can! I took what they had and I'm happy. :ROFLMAO:

Mine's a DD too and same here ... no crawling only trails. And at 5'8" and shrinking a 2" lift is plenty. As is, I carry a stool just for the roof rack (not shown in the pics above).

My TJ came with a dark khaki hard top. I have bulldawg half door uppers in black, so I painted my hard top black to match too.

Thanks. It was a back yard job so it took a little longer than I would have liked. I had to wait for nice days!

He's not joking, either. Somewhere here he posted photos "in process". :D

White with grey top

Your gray looks darker than some of the other photos I've seen. Would you happen to have a color code for it?

Not at the moment as I keep at my cabin but I will be up there over the weekend so I will see what I can find out. Another picture whenI brought it home a few years ago
