The best person to decide what color your truck should be is you.

I got Vinyl stripes on my truck, its not the color your asking for, but maybe it will give you and idea. For reference they are 6" wide with 5/16" pintripes spaced 5/16" from the main stripe.


Definately get some rocker stripes too


Not my truck, but one i looked at before deciding to do my stripes-

I think a medium blue (nonmetallic) with silver (nonmetallic) stripes would be really sick. You could do silver accents on the bumpers and wheels too. Even on the interior if you wanted.

Well its hard to tell but the black is actually satin black , but i have always loved the burnt orange color with either silver or black stripes , well right now i got the origional stock wheels like the one on this vehicle
but i was almost thinking of sprayin them black but keep a silver strip around the outside of the origional chrome color , eventually i want to get new wheels but cant afford it yet , and also gonna put a newer hood and bumper from like an 04 ranger on it and try to make it look almost like the orange truck
