Agreed! Thats why I so hung up. I made a posting on FB for all my buddies and red took the cake... but I still think Im going blue. If I can feel myself second guessing red already and its not even done.. every time I see a blue one id be like DAMNIT! haha. It really is a nice color!

This is a cool setup too! Thats not the LE tho is it? The blue looks a little different. 2 colors is even more work tho haha I already have to deal with stripes on my duster still so the truck will probably stay a solid color.

It's hard to tell if that is LE or not from the camera angle, but that color combination is really nice IMO. I'm afraid it wouldn't work really well for me though since I would never be able to keep it looking clean.

Yeah, after seeing this truck it pretty much convinced me. Dont know whos it is or which forum I found it on but it sold me, the ride height is perfect IMO also. I think they are 35's? I dont know what it has for a lift tho but thats my new goal for a ride height. I want the headlights too! lol

I'm searching for quad cab long bed with the paint scheme, or the white with blue stripe.
Or blue with white stripe.
long as its sonic blue!

The only stock paint job I've ever seen just turn heads on a truck.
Only color I know as sweet as it is Amber Fire from Dodge, which was a specialty paint option, not a stock color.
