Answer this, and I can give you a real answer; What direction are you going with the truck? Up? Down? Or stock?

how about "what color combos look good?" is an opinionated statement. some people like lime colors, some like zebra stripes, some like others.

generally lowered trucks get a two tone breakup at the upper bodyline....so...forexample.....black up to that bodyline, bright orange above it.

I've always thought that that color scheme looked good on older model trucks, on newer ones, not so much.

Personally, I've always thought that a white truck with the lower panel silver looked the best, at least on the f-150's, never seen it on a ranger so it might look good, might not.
