I know it seems typical, but if you repaint it white, it looks pretty sharp.
Im planning on re-painting mine white, with black rims.
Here is something I did in photoshop; Not the best, but I like it

if you are going to spend the money to repaint it, don't you want to keep it clean?

Haha, yep. This is what I plan on having my truck look like, once finished.
Hm, It isnt too hard to keep clean. You usually cant really notice the dirt unless youre pretty close to it. But mud; yeah, you can see that big time, hah.

White.... Fo sho.

One nice thing about white is it doesn't always show dust as much as other colors. White is really easy to keep "clean". Down here in Louisiana we have a lot of pollen and when it covers your car everything has a yellow tint to it... white cars don't have that prob. Even when my truck it dirty it looks clean.




If I could affored to get oil slick black I would think about doing that to... I love gloss black paint that looks like you can swim in it.
