: Interior/Exterior color pallet/options for 92-96?
09-30-2010, 06:13 PM
I am looking for a page that has the color combinations of different Bronco paint schemes, along with the paint name and number. I'd especially like the Eddie Bauer options - e.g. what exact paint colors/numbers were offered on the lower body and the top? I know some are lighter tan and some are darker.

I found this site:
But it doesn't give me anything I can see as far as the available colors for the top.

I guess a better question could be - does anyone know the name of the different tan colors that Ford painted the tops? I know some tans are so light they almost look white, while other tans are darker.

Very nice! Thanks!
Now if someone with a tan top and tan lower could pretty please let me know what their paint code is on their door so I can figure out what these colors look like, I would really appreciate it. Medium Mocha is looking like what I am shooting for.

Awesome! My codes are "DB UC." I don't know exactly what the DB is named, but I assume it's the black primary color, and "UC" according to your list above is "Light Mocha," which is my lower body/top color I presume. I am going to search for other Light Mocha tops because mine is so light it almost looks white. I am going to get it repainted, and if the light mocha color is actually darker than that, it's fine. But if Light Mocha is nearly white as it looks on mine, I'm going to look into making it a slightly darker shade of tan.

btw in VEHICLE CERTIFICATION LABEL
Broncos aren't listed in BODY section prob due to phaseout when Workshop Manual was edited by Ford

Excellent, so it looks like the lower body/fiberglass top tan color for the 95-96s is "Light Saddle." The code for the body paint is "DZ - Light Saddle," and the code for the fiberglass top paint is "U - Lt Saddle." Correct me if I'm wrong. I am getting these codes from miesk's pictures.
Right now my '93 top and bottom is I believe "Light Mocha," which is like a very light desert tan. It's not a bad color at all, but if I am going to be shelling out all of these Benjaminz for a new paint job I'm going to make it the paint job I want.

When you go to the shop, get a sample and look at it outside in sunlight and/ or at night if you want to see how it looks outside your home or the club/or wherever; under whatever lighting is there (sodium makes a lot of colors look bad)

I will try to get that off of mine when I get home..

I failed to confirm this;
DB - Light Mocha Solid
From Steve83's TSB 92-20-01 Paint Codes Link I initially posted http://www.supermotors.net/registry/media/724168_1
but no code for UC
10-04-2010, 11:25 AM
UC must be the black code, but I haven't been able to find it, either. :rofl: And DB is definitely the light mocha solid, and it looks like they retired that shade of tan after '93 or '94, as all of the '95s and '96s I've seen have been the light saddle shade of tan.

Ford made changes day-to-day at times.
Found it @ an internet site.. for a Probe tho...
Here is a better version of the 93's TSB (http://content.chiltonsonline.com/TSB/displayTSBHandler.ashx?assetID=36214&key=6kAUBD5BruOJf%2f3tgozUqjXM3RdbjcQqW4sVWiE%2fp2 IojfpfKqM07dr61%2bQAWHtT9lyK2FOmsr5PqLg%2b42AW3bNd zj9a1nENC6khc0byHJmEamdBmbRozA%3d%3d) by Ford via Chilton this is a better scanned version
