Giving a rig a decent paint job is a lot of work, but Summit Racing Equipment makes the work a little easier with its one-stop paint shop. Everything you could ever need to paint a vehicle can be ordered online or through the Summit catalog. We had been looking to take care of the finish on our 4x4, so we gave Summit a call.

We were extremely tired of driving our '97 Grand Cherokee and its eggplant-purple factory paint with red and white pinstripes. We had had it with all the "Purple Grand" jokes!

It's really great satisfaction knowing your paintjob was done by yourself and done right. Just make sure you have another ride, because a good paintjob takes a number of days.
