Icon2 Did some PS of paint on the 98 need opinions!

Okay here are 3 pictures I did. One is solid red(ignore the wheels I did this one a while ago) the bottom 2tone to silver instead of tan and the 3rd. Its silver bottom 2tone and hood painted(maybe leave the dip in the middle red). Truck will be getting a new paint job soonish. So I need to make up my mind lol. I also have a 01 style bumper I will be getting painted to mach with a chrome upper.

The shades of the colors aren't perfect, but gives me a rough Idea. There will be a poll so put in your vote!

Voting for the silver on the hood. I see and old man every now and then with an 06 with torredor red and black on his hood and has it run down to the grille, looks good.

Why would I change the interior? Besides the fact I am upgrading it.

I think your tan interior would clash with the silver rockers. You now have, red on silver on tan going on. I think your truck is great right now. Red on tan on tan.

I just think that if you add a third colour it mIght throw things off and make it seem too busy.
