Im looking to lay some pinstripes on my Commander.
Nothing fancy just stripes down the sides. Does any one have pictures of their Commander with pinstripes. Please post pic.
Thanks

Eeek... pinstripes. I saw a Commander with them last week and thought it looked weird. They had the lines about two inches below the body crease. It just started looking too busy. Maybe if you could lay them down right along the body crease they would work.

I have horizontal chrome stripes (very thin) on my silver commander. It looks great for my taste and I get compliments all the time.

Im not talking about Old School pinstripes. Im talking about the two thin lines that jeep use to put on their 90's JGC. You guys make it sound like im going to two tone my commander put bag on it with some ghost flames. mmmm come to think about it ghost flames would be cool....lol
The orange color with the 01 is so Dodge....

Yes on the pinstripes, right on the crease, double stripe, thick over thin. Bright silver, look great.

Ok let say I do pinstripe the commander, what colors would work on a black commander? Also where would you start and end the pinstripe? I like the idea of double stripe thick over thin as Bulldog9 said.

I guess if someone out there is good with Photoshop we can test this concept.

Side note: I ran this idea by the wife (her commander) and she said NOPE....I’m a little hard headed that’s why I asked the questions above.

Mine has pinstripes, everyone purchased at Dallas Dodge has them. I want to take them off myself, I just never think of it on the weekend when I run out of stuff to piddle with in the garage. You can see where they are in this photo, but you cant tell that there are two thin ones. I think they are either black or really dark blue.

The ones on Rooney's XK look better than the ones I saw. They had dropped a straight line right above the fender flares instead of putting it on the body crease.

I personally wouldn't want the pinstriping on mine, but that is just my taste.

The Jeep dealership that I bought my Jeep from actually installs horizontal pinstripes on all of its Commanders. I have a Inf Red Commander and it gives it a 'sportier' look. The only negative I have found (so far) is that I need to go through and remove the extra wax build-up around the pinstripes after I wax.

Mine came with pimpstripes that are just a shade lighter than the paint. I would not have chosen to have them put on, but I think they look pretty good. Will take photos in the next few days for you and post them.



The stripe is essentially the Lt. Khaki color. In the sunlight it is a good bit less obvious. In general I think it is a good accent.

My white '06 came w/ grey/beige-ish pinstriping. Says "hemi" (guess it's part of the hemi package? dunno.) gotta say it looks good on the white.

Would take pictures, but I don't think the sun's going to be out for a while.
