Paint ideas? what color do you think would look good on a reg cab ranger?

alright, so i got my first truck about a month ago and the bed above the fender wells was rusted so i filled it with bondo glass and then sanded it down etc and overlaid it with reg bodo glaze to get the smoth finish. Now its gloss white and the bed doesn't match fords white of the cab. Im looking to paint the truck. I was thinking like fords new sonic blue, or a burnt orange, maybe a candy green, something different. What colors would you guys recommend. By the end of the summer the trucks gonna have a 3 inch body lift, 4.56 gears, 33 inch tires, and 15 inch black black rock vipor wheels. Just to put that out there. Well let me no what you think. Here is some pics of the truck.

If you're going to paint it, why not go with someone other than a factory color? If it were me, I'd go with the Stone color that comes on F-150's. It's similar to Dark Shadow Gray.

I am trying to go with something different. Most rangers are white, tan, black, or red, and blue. I really love the sonic blue but i want something different than everybody else.

I'm a sucker for burnt orange. I've got a copper 1967 mustang and a copper 2007 Ford Edge SEL. I vote copper. I've seen some new Jeep Wranglers that are a really neat green though. Check out the color here http://autogreenmag.com/wp-content/u...r-mountain.jpg
