Default Paint color?

In a few weeks my buddy and I are going to get the body work done and paint my 98 xj. I dont know what color to paint it, I like the stock green color but also thought about the copper color on the hummers. Also thought about a dark red. Any ideas as to what will look better? Also should I paint the fender flares or leave them black, just wondering what you guys and girls think?

I say pink, then cover it all with mud so nobody knows you couldn't afford to buy enough red.

Good choice. The flats are very easy to do body work on. Gloss shows everything. Painted all my bumpers and tire rack with dollar a can Home Depot flat black. Low maintenance.
