paint color

So some jackass decided to key my truck for no reason. So now i get to repaint the truck. having a hard time deciding on my final color choice.

truck as it sits(well before 3 inch spindles, AAL, and shackles, oh and key marks)

Sorry if you mind me using your truck as an example, if so i can remove it

They keyed it enough to repaint the entire rig?




The Xterra green is about the only green I'd ever own. And I hate green.

Have you seen the "Night Armor" Xterra color? Really cool looking dark blue. Like your DWB now, but with a twist. No purple hue, it's dark blue with a hint of green and grey. Really something to see in person.

Here's some pics...

Dude that freakin' sucks. What do you do in a situation like that? Claim it on insurance and risk higher rates? Or just deal out-of-pocket on the whole deal?

Something worth saying...your stock color....is AMAZING when freshly sprayed. Buddy of mine does bodywork on the side and repainted half a side of a truck in the same Deep Wedgewood Blue and it is truely amazing when the sun hits it. But hey, if the entire truck needs a new coat, might as well change up the entire look of the truck! I don't blame ya at all. I've got it narrowed down to like 3 colors to spray mine with. One happens to be Beard's F150 color. It's called Dark Stone Grey...it's the same grey you posted in your opening post, but it's got some brown in it too. Another really neat looking color and it'd be the only Ranger with it. If I were in your shoes, I'd make it completely unique.
