Paint code?

Recommended Posts

Two questions:


1. Do you still have your Body Code Plate attached to the drivers side firewall in the engine compartment? and

2. Is this the original color of your MJ?


If so, the #5 - #8 digits (reading left to right) on the 2nd line of the plate is the primary paint code.

Is yours an 89?


If it is, your color is Dark Vivid Red Metallic Clearcoat.


Look here for the code:




On my 89... I think the code is PE8, as found on the tag on the firewall in the engine compartment on the driver's side.


If you do have an 89, could you put up a pic of the outside of it, and of the door sill? Mine looks nothing like the "chip" on that site, and I've won a bid on a 44 page color Jeep sales catalog, but have yet to see it.


Mine is really brown... not red. Both outside and in the door sills.


But then, its been a SoCal truck its whole life, with a lot of sun exposure.
