Red vs. Blue repaint

So I'm kinda torn on which color to repaint my truck. My truck is already red so it would be easier to just have to paint the new bed and fenders and forget about the rest but the Ford LE blue is also a sharp looking color. I have a lighted visor I have to paint either way also. I know this is a completely opinion based question but also I'd like to see your trucks with each color to help make up my mind.

I like the red I have but I'd really like the dark blue that was offered on some of these trucks. Just preference of color.

I just love that dark, hunter green on vehicles for some reason. Quite possibly due to Steve McQueen in bullit

I have repainting mine on the list too. I'm gonna keep most of it white, and paint the band down the middle between the bends in the body lines medium blue. I have the blue interior, so I'm stuck with blue or white.

In general, I prefer green/blue to red. Just an opinion, but I think red belongs on sports cars, not trucks. Good luck either way.

If I was in your shoes, I would repaint the same color it is now then all you really need to paint is the exterior...

If you go with a different color, You really should do it right and that gets costly.

well to do it right it will be $400 in paint. Im going to be doing all the work and painting it so thats not a big deal. Just an extra weekend pretty much to do the cab and mask it off... need a new windshield so I dont have to be super picky on masking that off. The doors are gonna be the biggest pain because Ive never had the door panels off but I cant imagine its that bad?

Paint code LE is the cat's whiskers in my opinion. I wanted to paint BKP that color, but didn't have the time to do it right. I will have a single cab 4x4 dually painted LE before I die I can promise you that. LOL

I really REALLY like this look. I am having this same debate for my truck. It needs body work in a bad way and now that the engine swap is done, body work is next on the list. I want something easy to maintain and if need be touch up. I still intend to use it as a truck!

If it isn't under warranty, I'll fix it myself.
