You absolutely positively cannot err if you choose bronze green with limestone trim. Arles blue with limestone is also a nice choice. Anything but white unless you are as flamboyant as the late Liberace.
Military OD green and black camouflage paint applied with a mop is also appropriate.

Are you planning on painting it yourself? I'm trying to convince myself that brush painting my truck in NATO tan or green won't turn out like crap. Obviously that story will only end well.

Matt:

Like many said, Arles blue is awesome. Don't overlook the Series colors (I have an 88" in pastel green), or also the Willow Green on the '97 90 LEs is cool as well.

If you want Grey, you can try the grey they used on the Gstar Defender.

So far it looks like it might be staying yellow. Althought the body is in mint condition, the painter wants $1000.00 more just to change the color. My current yellow paint is really in rough shape and needs a fresh start.

Makes sense to me, a color change requires more way more prep than the same color and will use extra product as well.

If one were to do a color change, you would pull the entire body to bits anyway. I'm surprised that the $$ diff between spraying an assembled vehicle's exterior only and a complete color change is only $1k.

Spraying over the old color never even entered my mind. I have the result of that on my truck now and it's shit. That's why I'm going to disassemble, remove paint and do it properly (unlike previous owner).

The painter also said it will take some extra coats if i go with something lighter like white. The entire truck is disassembled, it just needs prepped and painted.
