    Default Help me with color for my truck!

    All right I am trying to figure out exactly what color or colors I want to paint my truck. I have just about finished all the priming and prep work. So I should be getting it painted this week or next. So I'm looking for some opinions on what yall think. I'm looking at solid black or keeping the black and silver look. I dont want the goofy red pin stripe that I had or the chrome across the bottom of my truck.

    Here is what I had....

    Here is a pic of just a black one I found...

    Here is another one thats mostly black with silver on the bottom....

    And finally here is a truck with the black and the silver reversed.... I know its not a suburban but its what I could find....

    I am open to other opinions as well. Just really wanted to see what everybody thought or if theres another idea out there that I'm missing. Thanks.

    Have you considered "Slpray on bed liner"? Very tough material and easy to clean up.

    Yeah I have but I think I still want to be able to shine my truck up from time to time. I have considered make the bottom foot or so of the body line x but havent made up my mind yet.

    I think that silver with the black stripe looks sharp!

    I think the last picture looks the best but I would just have the silver on the top, I wouldn't do another section of silver on the bottom.

    I vote for the silver in the middle.. Two tone looks a lot better on these trucks since there is such a huge amount of space. Kinda breaks it up and makes it look better in my opinion..

    I personally like the all black, but the silver and black reversed looks good also, maybe do it like coolardo says and just do silver on top and the rest black.
