EDIT: IF your truck is a 95-97, it is Bright Sapphire Metallic Clearcoat, and the code on the door jam should be something like JA/M6704. It is the only color that is even close to the color of your truck in those pictures.

Park my Deep Wedgewood Blurple next to a Sonic Blurple, and mine is blue and sonic is purple.



Bright Sapphire Metallic Clearcoat
^^I fixed it...

Grabber Orange is also called Valencia....same exact paintcode with the same mixture. I think F4 or E4 is your paintcode, Ford likes to change names but not the color it seems.

It's entirely possible the color is called one thing on say an F150, yet called another on say a Ranger. But both share the same paint code, just the names are different.
