Red sports cars = $$$ insurance
Red trucks not so much.

Dark if the body is straight and light if its dinged up...I never did like that dark purple color. A nice blue, green, silver, or dsg always looks good.

Mine was purple too. same body style, just the lighter more femine purple. I painted mine the dark metallic blue off the 08 super duty with dark charcoal grey off the 08 super duty on the rockers. painted my flares to match the rockers and it looks sexy as hell. But i also have clear heads/turns, billet grille, euro tails, and 08 ranger emblems on the side :)

I am up in the air between the two. I like the color of my truck but I have always been a black/white/gray person. My truck is the most colorful thing i own! haha If i ever need to paint more than a few panels I am going to do the whole thing but I also cant decide between the two. If i do black i want a red flake in it to make it look reddish on angles. Or if white I want alpine white, the color on my VW and white BMW's.

Newer dodge rams have a sick "metallic black" that looks like a silvery black in the sunlight. Its very cool. Might be a bit expensive but when youre dropping a grand on a paint job or more anyway whats 200 extra for some good paint. It doesnt show scratches like a normal gloss black. Look into it i think you'd like it too!!

X2.

I hate Dodge vehicles.... but every time I see that color I drool a little. If Ford's black had been that color, I would have waited for a black truck.
