There is too much gold for the truck. It makes a nice accent, but the two-tone needs more black and less gold.

No opinion on black/gold or all black, but to save some money, you could take advantage of the gold to apply some graphics down there. Maybe a thin/thick/thin black stripe from wheel well to wheel well and back to the rear bumper, with the RANGER logo cut out of it to allow the gold text to "show" through (thinking: Mustang GT 350). You can get the black stripe done in vinyl, saving a LOT of money over painting the stripe, or even over painting black over the gold.

Or just some smallish (2" tall) black text with the RANGER XLT logo, applied high and near the forward edge of the door over the gold (thinking: '06 LEVEL II).

Make the gold silver to match the bumpers, all black would be the next best thing.

I say go all black, I wouldn only buy another vehicle if it were all black.

Black vehicles are alot better looking in my opinion.

I'm on lunch break right now, so I'll do some Photoshopping. I'll provide photos if someone can host them... [email protected].

EDIT: I have a couple of quick 'n' dirty concepts done. Cody, Contact me via email and I'll send them to you if nobody responds with an offer to host the photos.
