    I had a Jeep where everything underneath was painted blue at one time. (now covered in black paint). I’ve noticed a few people paint everything blue when building a Jeep from the frame up, like this one. Does anyone know where or why this practice originated?

    By underneath, do you mean the underside of the body or the frame (and other chassis parts)? I always paint the chassis black, but there’s not hard and fast rule about it (unless you are trying to do an accurate restoration).

    Not the body, but the frame and suspension parts. I thought “blue” was an odd color for the frame and associated parts. If it was Ford engine/trans and Tcase, those parts make sense. I guess my main problem is thinking everyone thinks like me. 😂

    I’m a simple guy with simple tastes == black chassis. I don’t have the color sense to attempt to use an alternative. I’ll have to hunt down a yellow and green project that was for sale years ago (I think out of Enumclaw, Washington). Let’s just say it did not sell quickly!

    They say dogs look like their owners and horses are a window into a persons soul. Certainly these Jeeps make a statement about their owners!
