Black Jeep color scheme

Anyone have any suggestions? I know it all comes down to personal preference but I've been tossing ideas around in my head and can't figure out what would look good. Got PSC flat fenders now and soon will have their Brawler light front bumper and rock brawler rear bumper and the rocker knockers. Later i might add PSC rear corner armor. Was thinking about doing the fenders black and painting the tubes on the fenders, rocker knocker tubes, and bumpers in like a fairly dark silver, and possibly doing some red accents here and there such as the insert on the rocker knockers, front diff cover, and other little things like that (don't want to get too carried away). Also, considering possibly painting the control arms the same silver color when i get it... What do you think? Or any other ideas for a color scheme? Maybe just leave the fenders all black and do the rest as i mentioned? Suggestions, opinions, and/or pics of other color schemes would be much appreciated!

Black & red is tricky, it's one of those things that looks better in your head than when you actually get it done.

I've got a black JK too and just did the rear poison spyders, doing the fronts today (hopefully if the wind dies down so I can paint them). I went back and forth between doing them bumper color, bedlined, or factory black. I ended up going with none of the above - instead I covered them with Rustoleum black metallic, then shot a clear coat on top. Pretty happy with the results, the metal flake paint gives it just a little bit of contrast against the body so you can tell it's different, but having the clear on top of them keeps a shine consistent with the rest of the body. If you're 20 feet away they look body color but as you get closer you can see a subtle difference.

Crappy pic against a dirty body, but I'll get some more once I get the fronts on.

Check out this thread:

Smurfette got all her PSC stuff powdercoated an Anthracite color. That would really look good against the black.

X2 on that color.

Kha has a black two door and painted the bumper a different color, don't know what it's called, but it looked awesome too.

I love the colors on Smurfette. Got to see it in person today and damn....it looks amazing...love those colors together. I've seen that black PSC jeep before. I really like the color combo on it but was thinking of doing the top of the fenders black and doing the silver in a bit darker color. Kindof like a gun metal grey but maybe not so dark. I photoshoped that black PSC jeep a little to try to play around with some of the color combos. I'll post that in a bit as soon as I finish so you guys can see kindof what I'm thinking. Thanks for all the suggestions so far. Trying to plan this out is a PITA without actually seeing it and I don't want it to look bad so the feedback helps.

Here's what I had in mind more or less. This is not my Jeep, its an image of that Black Poison Spyder Jeep pictured above which I photoshopped for my use... please excuse my photoshop skills as I know they're not perfect but I think it looks alright.

I have a similar color scheme running with mine.

Black Jeep
Anthracite wheels and accents on Rocker Knockers etc....

Therefore...I like it.

Awesome glad I'm not totally crazy! Lol. I'm probably going to go almost like a charcoal metallic color though instead of a silver, that way it's not so bright of contrast against the black
