    Good morning guys,

    I have been searching everywhere i can find to search on how to decode the data plate on the firewall of my 81 CJ-5. I have been able to find most of the information but the one im having trouble with is the "paint option" code. On that particular line, there is 03 152(i think) OK 5EB. Does anyone have any way of being able to find out what the 152 would be. The data plate isnt in the best shape so its hard to make out if its for sure a 152. Is there a list or anything of the possible paint options? I know its cameo tan with nutmeg interior but not sure on paint option.

    The tag shows how the Jeep came from the factory.
    The paint and trim codes are on the tag.
    What is this paint option code you speak of ?
    never heard of this, please explain further.
    If you have searched then you have found what the tag looks like and what means what.
    Post a picture of your tag here.

    My manual just says disregard, for factory use only.
    Good luck in your hunt.
