A darker gray or silver would look pretty cool. White will eventually yellow after a while, and black is a bit common.

Heres the scoop, its a stock 02 ranger XLT. It has the chrome XLT bumpers. sorry no pics, me and my girlfriend just broke up and she bought the digital camera before i could get the chance....yeah. umm...it is a stepside. I really do like the black because i have seen one already with black and its wicked....but then again if i have different color i could change my mods....(aka- interior paint, grill paint unless i get billet, and also the rims) i have the 5 spoke aluminum rims now but it wont be for long.
p.s. yes it is a late-model in my pic but its not me drivin. its rick aukland-12 and Bart Hartman-75, my 2 favorite drivers.

That's what my front end is gonna look like sooner or later. Imagine it with red and black, and a silver billet grill and I think it'd be pretty sweet.

Black would be my choice. 2 off to the sides, or 1 up the middle?

The one im getting is the vinyl sticker. im lookin at www.decaldriveway.com they have alot of cool stuff. I couldnt find many more places with the racing stripes so there isnt really many different types/brands that i have seen.
