Talking Help me a decide color for my 2012 JKUR

I'm planning on ordering a 2012 Unlimited Rubicon next week probably. I'm most likely getting an automatic, 4.10's, 430N, dual tops, and maybe some other options. My dilemma is that I don't know what color to go with. I'm debating between white, red, and silver. I plan on blacking it out whatever I get with wheels, body armor, and window tint. I won't touch the headlights or tail lights though. So what do you guys think? If you have one of these colors, post a picture of your JK to help me decide.

I love my Silver. Was never a color I considered when initially looking but blacked out it looks great and hides battle wounds well. White could be sick too. Not a huge fan of red. I have friend with Red Rock and although it's an amazing looking rig, it doesn't hide the trail damage.

Silver. Scratches blend and you can pick any other color and it will go with silver.

Thanks everyone! I had a red 02 and saw it turn to a near pink/orange color and I wasn't a fan of that...I'm kind of leaning away from red...what y'all think?

When I went in to buy my '12 Rubi I had every intention of going with silver. However as I was standing there contemplating it, the crush orange caught my eye and I'll be dammed if I wasn't instantly in love... You know... Just saying...

Always heard that it doesn't matter what color you end of going with. Own it for a few years and you'll learn to love it...

Silver. Not the most flattering color, but as others said it hides scratches and most everything matches well with it. I bet white is pretty good as well. Any other car and it would be something with some more character - metallic blue for me personally.

I had a white 2 door and loved it. Was planning to go all black out to contrast with the white paint. So I vote white!

I was on the fence about black,silver and white. I ended up going with white mainly because it's one of those colors that everything goes with.
