In my opinion if the blue your describing is what I am thinking I would imagine a white or silver accent color would look good. Looking at a pic of a stepside bed I don't think a two tone would work but maybe some new age flames or even lighting bolts shooting down the sides might set it off enough.

It's tough to pull off a "traditional" two-tone scheme on a stepper, but what I have seen done that I like is doing the front portion of the cab one color of your choice with an upward angled (or radiused) color change ending about bed height. Then the bed is done all in the other color. So you end up with the hood, roof and most of the fron fender/door in one color and the rear another. Blue front/black rear and maybe separate the two colors with a "divider" of the interior gray/silver. Just a thought...

There is a guy in my town with a '79 1/2 ton that is painted black and white. White in-lay and roof, the rest black. It's really a sharp color scheme for the 73-79 Fords.
