Default Need Help! I want to put together a Ranger Color Album!

I think it would be awesome to put together a photo album of Ford Rangers with every factory color that was produced. That way instead of looking at online paint chips or what not there could be an actual reference photo per color. It shouldn't be too hard since I'm sure between a lot of people on the site they probably own a Ranger in almost every color. I know it may sound silly but I think it'd be awesome, I was trying to find factory Ranger colors and I can never find a corresponding picture of a Ranger in that color. Cause sometimes a paint chip will look great but it just might not match the truck... ya know? Okay so that's the first part of my agenda.

On a more personal note I am trying to find a good color to refinish a Ranger with, I have it down to four but they each have a stipulation. Blue, I love blue but it's insanely common, is it possible to find a unique shade, preferably something bright? Purple, but I want it to be more manly and not like a fluffy purple but again nothing dark I like vivid bright colors. Yellow, but there are only so many kinds of yellows before they all look the same, and Orange, which actually doesn't have a stipulation other than just a good shade. Does anyone own a Bright Sapphire Metallic Ranger? I noticed that was a factory color in 97 and the chip looks nice but I want to see it on a truck.

I'm probably leaning closest to Orange and Purple since Blue and Yellow are always more overdone... anyway... I'm rambling... so What do you guys think of putting up pictures of every Ranger factory color to start a reference paint album? And can you help me out with some ideas for a color for my own ride?

Well there is Ford Sonic Blue it looks purple in some light and blue in others.

I know the orange you are referring to, I love the color. Also Ford Jalapeno Green.

For the yellow, Chrome Yellow was the "color" of the 01-03 Edge edition. Heres a pic of it if you want to use it...



For your ride im a kind of person that doesnt do anything to a vehicle until I have a plan. Before I would personally pick I would want to know what a person's favorite color combinations (ex yellow with black), what kinds of mods will go on it to enhance the paint color (ex color rims, cap or cover, stripe, interior theme of color, etc), and what submodel the vehicle is. If I were you I would do drawn out plans of what I would do to furthur customize the truck in each color option. After doing that and evaluating all of them you will have a set of options to chose from so that you have little to no regrets down the road. That just my opinion though, only pick what you want.

Yeah whatever Ex Cab I pick up is going to be painted Jalapeno Green, I love that color, So I'm hoping this Sapphire Blue really looks bitchin I just need to see a picture of it.. and Thanks for the Chrome Yellow Ranger.. .first one for the album sir!

I don't have a favorite color. I am a man of many colors. I love vivid, bright colors though, so certainly nothing with black or white or gray or anything. If I can see a picture of this Sapphire I think it would help...

Keep the pictures coming guys! Any Ranger with a factory paint job is welcome! I really think this will be great if we can get them all together.

E4 = Cardinals Red or Bright Red

DWB = Deep Wedgewood Blue also has the change effect. Looks black and purple

It's ok guys... I got the Grabber Orange pics covered... haha

Available 2008-2009 and I think limited production both years....





Changes colors depending on the weather but if your torn between yellow and orange it's a good middle ground... just impossible to re-match later

I have had a lot of colors on rangers and have pics of most but none were really bright colors except maybe red and the amber truck I just sold. BTW my cougar I sold a few years ago was painted saphire blue and it looked purple sometimes...

I do love the burnt Orange color! That is a color I have been seriously considering.

Btw was Grabber Orange a factory color? Was it called something else?
