Default White Jeep looks so plain...

Hey guys..,

Finding my white Jeep jk looks so plain. What’s the best way to dress it up?

Scale army star on door (I like it, but very over done)?

Some kind of strip down door?
(Black plasti dip incase it doesn’t look nice)

Thought about painting bottom half of Jeep black? (Plasti-dip)

Wish I grabbed a coloured body....

Thanks

Paint the hinges black and maybe just trace around the door perimeter with a super fine black sharpie marker. It will add a little more breakup to it. Looks good as it is, but if you needed to add something those are the first ones I'd go with.
Good luck

I second the hinges, it might help here even though it seems 1:1 JKs have body-color hinges. Do you have any pictures of the truck dirty? Trail grime always helps.

That’s a great idea to break up the colour!!
If not enough I can still add a stripe or colour from window sill down...
Thanks

Ya that’s kinda a reason I haven’t but agree it might help break up the colour. The body’s actually broke in quite a bit but the white seems to hide everything

Also might try whiting out the side wall letters.., wish the ko2s were the smaller size. For $20, figures I’d try it out. Makes crawling easier for my young’uns.

Also have a pair of blue rims.., maybe add a bit of colour?

Figured I’d try to bedazzle it...,



Think the “Who’s your mudder”, is the only one more out of place than others. Really like the blue sticker on front....

Love the new look. If I was to give any feedback on this, it'd be that on the side panel, near the window, there is the four rivets. I'd probably paint those chrome, or black. Just to amke them pop a bit more, and then on the inside of your lights, theres the white circles, I've always disliked that, I'd chrome those up.

Think it should hit the actual hinges on the front doors?
