    USMC Anyone know of a cost?

    I would like to paint my 2008 JK Unlimited Olive Drab. Anyone know of a cost or ball park cost. Really need to get this information so that i can put up a better fight with the CO when she finds out what I wanna do.

    A lot of that is going to depend on how in-depth you want to get with the paintjob. Do you want all of the door jambs, insides and underhood done also? Are you going to do any parts removal before taking it to the paint shop? Are you supplying the paint and other materials? It's rough to give an estimate on something like that without seeing the vehicle.

    My suggestion, go talk with a couple of different paint shops. Tell them what you want. Ask them if their price includes the jambs, insides and underhood. If it does, ask them how much it saves you if you remove the interior pieces. Ask them what it will cost if you only do the exterior and not the jambs, insides and underhood. Tell them you will remove the flares, bumpers, lights, etc.. before bringing it to them.

    Shop around. I can't stress that enough. As you go from paint shop to paint shop, don't tell them what other shops have quoted you until you hear their price. Then you have some ground to stand and haggle/negotiate.

    Crazy4ink,
    Thanks man for the reply. I figured it would all depend, just didnt know if anyone has done this. And yes, I would want it done right with doing all the jams and the undersides or hood, etc.

    I am totally willing to take it down as far as I can and then take it to them.

    Thanks again. Semper Fi.

    Squirrel Killer, what did it end up costing you?
    How did it turn out?
    I'm curious to know how much prep you did before.
