Best color to paint a Bronco

What's the best color to paint a Bronco?


I was wondering cause I was thinking about painting mine.

Mines two tone (blue on top, white in the middle, blue on the bottom). Was thinking about a Glossy Black. Saw a 1992-1996 Bronco on here all Gloss Black; it looked sweet.

But as everyone knows...black shows scratches, etc.

Since I drive offroad...this would be an issue.


But anyways, what's the best color you think a Bronco should be?


Note: I don't think I have posted about this before or if anyone else has..I might be losing my mind.

Ever thought about a two tone black and white?

I like the gloss black look but its a bit overused imho. I think if you wanna really stand out withput everone stopping to take pics of you at the gas station, (it happens) then go with a color not normally seen on a Bronco. Could be something as simple as a stock color....off of a dodge viper or corvette or Ford GT. Thats just my .02

Haha Dodge Vipers are awesome! Well the older body style ones, not the crappy square ones they make today. The new SRT GTS Viper looks pretty awesome though! Okay anyways... I personally have always liked black. Glossy or Metallic. I think it looks really awesome but, like Edgethis said, it is a little too common.

Honestly, yellow might not be that bad. Or sometimes a Copper/metallic or amber color can look pretty cool. I've never seen that on a Bronco, but it may look good.

To play it 'safe', I would go black for the best looking color, then metallic dark green!

Bubba, you better do a search on the new Viper, I bet you'll like it. Manfred, I too vote on a black/white scheme like Brett . I went function over aesthetics with mine, but it ended looking very good (IMHO).

Or Newspaper!

And Encho, I have seen the brand new 2013 Viper. I think that one looks pretty awesome. It looks so much more like the original which is why it looks good. It's just a matter of time before I get a 1996 Viper GTS.......

How about a 'cloking' paint? You could make it turn invisible like a Klingon Bird of Prey.

I had a reputable trans shop have a look at it, they tell me that the noise is just 'gear chatter' and it's nothing to be worried about at this time. Apparently these transmission get a bit noisy when they get some miles on them.

I'm looking at a '95 Bronco, the truck may have to find a new home soon.

Yeah, this one rattles too that I got from ya. Heard it was common for them to do it too. It shifts good.

Get that Bronco...find one with a 300 in it and put the ZF5 behind it.

same with this one, it shifts nice and clean, you can feel it 'click' in between gears when you shift and it doesn't jump out of any gear. It just makes noise at idle.

Rust free Broncos are impossible to find around here, so the one I've looked at is in Northern Va. It's so clean I doubt that it has even been out in the winter time, there is just not a spot of crud anywhere. The downside is- it's 5.0/e4od rig. I'll know tomorrow if I can get it, he had one guy before me who the owner was waiting to hear back from.

So did you decide on a color?? I was reading about a lift kit you were thinking about for your Bronco, did that happen yet?
