well... here it is... what color would you guys go? going for a full frame-off resto, of course. I'm thinking of going RED again with the black stripes like my fathers... good or bad?

I'd leave it the factory colors. Black and gold is cool!

If you are "restoring" it, you should go with the factory colors

I can't stand those guys who can't make their own minds.

I'm fan of the stock color but love a nice bright blue.

where do you keep finding these awesomely clean jeeps. I would be so happy to find one in that condition by itself. Another vote for stock.

I like the color it has. Get the buffer out and call it good.

Dan,

Not everything needs to be restored. Sometimes a "survivor" is best left alone.

I think the truck and Cherokee should be a matching set... either same colors, or reverse two tone of each other

I think he means me. Your rig Dan, but I'd leave those colors as is. Another great score for you. Congrat's.
