Two tone will give you a lasting clasic look. and lets face it, it wont be long before these trucks are clasics.

Blue with a white strip looks good, I also like the look of blue with a lighter shad of blue for the stripe.

Ive been thinking about a modern ford blue with a 65 mustang white. I think it was called Wimbalton White.

Let's just go with Ford Blue lol. It's probably just Cyan or something.

i think white is the best choice, mine came factory black and my dad painted it white about 9years ago and its still decent looking, but is ready for a re-spray..

white is a good color man
i got two tone white with a grey stripe and its pretty hard to make it look dirty.
i have to say i would prefer red though. if my truck didnt have the nickname "whitey" it would be red

I took my truck to a paint shop and spent the least amount as possible. I did all the prep work my self. I got gloss black. Black shows all the defects in your prep work before you painted it so i wouldnt go with black. I would either go with white, blue, or even gray
