Help choosing color.

Ok, i plan to put stripes on my truck like Greg (jerskain) did


My brother works at a vinal shop, and he is going to make it for me, but I cant decide what color to go with.

I was planing black, but as i was looking at it, i dont think it would go my truck.

Now I am leaning towards Charcol Grey to match the fender flairs and all, but not sure if that would match with the black waag bar and the silver 4.0L SOHC sticker.

So i thought about silver to go with the 4.0L sticker, the 4x4 sticker and the pin stripe.

I donno, what do you think would look best?
Here are a few pix of my truck to help

If you do it do the enitre raised part of the hood except fo rthe dip in the middle, not just two stripes. For colour I'd say try to get one to either match your valence/flares or match your grille. That'd be sweet.

I'd go with the 2 stripes of black, and paint the valence and flares black also...it's easy to do.
I'd keep the '4.0' decal on in silver and see how it looks, I think it would look good silver still and be a nice transition from the black and stand out. If you don't like the silver go ahead and get a black one after that...my idea.

ya, i have thought about painting everything, but i am worry it will get scratched up when i go offroad..i donno. When i get the black stripes on i will see how everything works.
My brother said his shop is really busy right now, so i gotta wait till the end of the month before he can get started on making it

About painting the valence and flares, I just saw the other day a plastic paint primer...the plastic paint may stick real well if used in conjunction with the plastic primer.
I painted my valence and flares about 6 months ago, and have gone wheeling a few times since then, and the paint is coming off a tiny bit, a few random spots, nothing huge, but I plan on repainting them real soon because I like my truck to look show worthy, haha.
