Any Ruby Red regrets?

My trucks have always been white, it really hides the dirt. And easy to keep it looking good for years.

But man, that Ruby Red keeps calling me. It's rich, and deep, not a shouty look-at-me red.

How does it wear for people, long term?

2018 Platinum F350 dually to be ordered soon...

Todd

Yeah, one BIG regret. I didn't get it. Go for it. If I wasn't trading in 2-3 years, I'd not have taken black, but only Ruby.

I have a ruby red king ranch on order and can’t wait. I am trading in a 2010 pearl blue 250 that is gorgeous with the chrome accents but The blue jeans they have now just isn’t as rich a color as the pearl blue so I went with the red. My wife’s ‘14 Explorer is ruby red and it’s a beautiful color and doesn’t show dirt as bad as my dark blue truck does.

I haven’t had mine long enough to address the durability, but I’m sure glad I got it. People I don’t even know compliment me on how beautiful my truck is.

Ruby Red is the nicest color I've seen on a pickup truck. I wanted to do the whole murdered out theme so I went with black. If I had a dream life, I'd buy a 250 in Ruby Red.

Best color they have. Really pops against the tint when in the sun.

I bought white and magnetic two tone, but I have to say Ruby Red is a stunner. If this truck wasn't so huge and a pain to clean I would've gotten Ruby instead. The white and magnetic is a breeze to keep clean, that's why I got that instead.

While the name is the same, I think Ruby Red has become more "blue/purple" that when it was originally introduced.

I've got a 2018 on (forever) order. Originally ordered RR but changed it to Magnetic after seeing RR in various light conditions. It almost looks plum to me.

I love the RR but I also think they have tweaked the color a little from 3 or 4 years ago. Not quite as deep.
