I know looks very similar to Recon I wanted a little color on black rig. I chose a grey wrap color that matches wheels and Rubicon Grille/Headlight inserts and then made the red outline thicker/wider then others have used to increase visibility. Also added a little extra to tailgate and a special decal in memory of my recently deceased mother who loved red cardinals.

Love this, all of it. Very cool. Beautiful decal, wonderful tribute to your mother. Condolences.

Those beadlock wheels seem to be popular!

Hi all,

I've recently decided to add a pop of color to my granite JLUS. Growing up I'd always wanted a mango tango (I referred to it as "burnt orange") Wrangler, but alas by the time I finally got my own, they no longer made it for the JL (which I decided was the model/trim I needed to get). So sadly, no "burnt orange" Wrangler for me.. BUT, with some pops of color, I can pay tribute to my younger years and get the best of both worlds! So I'm trying to choose (in a discerning fashion) where exactly to add color without overdoing it.

Thus far, all I've done is get my tow hooks powder coated mango tango. For me, I'm trying to keep it semi "blacked out" so I definitely don't want to go overboard. I'm thinking about getting the Rugged Ridge XHD aluminum hood latches and getting those powder coated; it would be so much easier if they could just *come* that way to avoid the hassle, but that's neither here nor there. When I get new wheels, I may get black rims but powder coat my calipers mango tango. Stuff like that.

Show me what you've done to add pops of color to your rig! Looking for some inspiration, and would also just love to see what everyone's done as a "slick" color element to their ride.

I’m a plus one on the red accents, I even told Colby if she’s gonna be on the rig, she has to contribute......lol.

I’m also a fan of the burnt orange, my favorite being Copperhead Pear Coat from around 2014 I think.....

Damn it. I think Copperhead Pearl is actually the one I prefer. Mango Tango is a close second, though. Oh well! Haha.. Mango Tango is probably easier to color match when not doing a full custom powder coat anyway.

Colby looks pleased to contribute! lol

That looks awesome! Great job! That tailgate accent really ties it in nice.

My sincerest condolences to your loss!

That's pretty bad ass. I actually really like the amber fronts, and those wheels are a slick accent. Good stuff.
