Thanks for the comments guys...!
That Sand tan has got me thinking now. I got a little time yet before the paint hits the truck.
Little more body work to do. And the two tone idea, is something I just might consider also.....

Tan with black trim always looks great. No matter what. I was close to painting mine in a black/tan theme.

I always like this color on the new jeeps. Way better than the rescue green in my opinion...

Talking DIY Satin Black for me...

This is the route I took Satin Black Rustoleum paint job. Did it myself along with the minor body work. Cost was a factor for me so I took my time and learned how to do it. Small HF compressor cheap and paint gun.



Taken this past weekend tailgating. It has held up very well.

See if you can find a sample swatch card of the dark green with metallic GOLD
THAT WAS ORIGINAL JEEP COLOR ON J's IN 1982..

Almost a grass green..Gold in it makes it pop....

Still searching for that one certain color yet. Not sure why I'm fixated on green at the moment.
Looking for that certain color that would look good on a full size truck that stands out for just being as differant as seeing a J20 on the road.
Something other than the norm I guess.
Seen this color at the Ford dealership this past weekend, and I'm leaning towards it.( Gingerale metalic)

Almost a sage type of color that would look good with blacked out trim or a little splash of chrome...

If you want that cool looking green check out HerrKooled (member on here) 77 build progress. He did a great job and his truck looks good. Look in the general tech section.

I am a big fan of Rescue green personally, and I ALMOST went with it instead of Jeep Green Metallic on my JK.

There is a '77 Ford F250 here that is painted Rescue Green, it looks sharp.

This is an old post, but I've been looking for a picture of a Waggy with Jeep Rescue Green on it for a long, long time! I WILL be painting my Wagoneer RG with flat black accents in the future!

Sorry for the correction. Just had too
Also to be somewhat productive I like the desert sand color rather than OD green (kills me to say it but too many people are doing the OD green paint nowadays).

I am planning Avocado Mist Metallic for mine. I may add a little extra flake to make it pop in the sun. I like the Rescue Green but think something like the Avocado Mist is a little more "refined", if that is the right adjective..

here is a sweet Commando: http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/showthread.php?t=209035

and a great looking two tone J truck from UK: http://car-from-uk.com/sale.php?id=12284

Considering how much I drooled over the Rescue concept, And how large it is, I think the J truck can carry it off well. Jeep has a history of tossing some bright colors out there, just look at the old Renegades.
