A painted turd is still a turd. I would spend that money on getting the truck running better and removing some of the rust.

You know intelligence insults don't really work coming from someone that can't even spell.

so keep it the scheme it is and change the teal to blue or whatever. the first one doesn't seem to flow and the second one split up like that seems to only work it the truck is white instead of black.

If you two tone it do the flares and bumper blue as well. Black looks good on top cause it will flow with tinted windows better.

All I have to say is:

Downey. With all this crap you are buying or are thinking about buying have you bought new brakes for your truck or are you still running the used crap? You know $50 for the U bolts to run the Explorer leafs that you don't need. Priorities man.

No I don't read all of your threads because they are all stupid. Sorry but my threads usually have real info not "truck lewks good" or whatever other bs you post. You only get bashed because of you own stupidity. Stop to think before you say anything and people would be nicer. Yes you may have had a broken leaf but you could have just slapped in some stock leafs that would have bolted right in without any extra parts needed.

As far as the paint I think the second pic looks better. Why not Line X the bottom part of your truck and run the vista blue everywhere else?
