The Purtiesty Color, Here.

Can't understand why everyone doesnt think Ruby Red is not the prettys color. Plain as daylight to me!
Only think I hate is that everyone will soon want one and everyone will have one....




25 miles on her so far. Got my factory puck B&W Fifth Wheel Hitch in.
Thursday she gets a bed liner and Westin Black Steps and a little clear plastic on the hood.
And in 4 weeks she'll have a Ranch Hand Legend on the front and rear.

Color preference is very subjective. You might not want a black truck, but it's hard to argue about how perfect it looks when finely detailed. Same thing with white. I would really prefer a color other than those two, but none of the colors are bad or don't fit the truck. Ruby Red was just a little too loud for my tastes. Nice truck.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That's why they make them in different colors.

Glad you like it! It's a terrible Florida color. Folks spend forever waxing it because the sun fades it. Got a friend with an 2017 F-250 in that color. He loved it when he got it, but now the upkeep is killing him.

As Henry Ford said “you can have any color you want, as long as it’s black”.

My wife's favorite color is red but my trucks will only be this color.

I actually like magnetic, and blue jean, and white, and black is nice when clean. Not sure if there are any bad colors...

Lots of pretty colors. And I do like the Ruby Red. ( on my second one 2015 and now 2017)

But then I've always liked loud colored cars, So why should my trucks be any different

But I did enjoy a Tuxedo Black 2011, a Brown 2006 KR and 1997 Pacific Green in addition to my Red trucks

I like the blue ones a lot, but since my 2012 was pearl blue metallic I opted for the ruby red this time around. Didn't think I'd ever own a red truck but this one just reached out and grabbed me.

My F150 was magnetic - was beautiful. My current F350 is "blue jeans" and I love it. Absolutely beautiful color, even when dirty. And it matches the camper.

I like the Ruby Red also but for a lazy old guy like me the White Gold is easy to keep clean. Son in law bought one also in White Gold with Caribou trim.

I am glad you like the red but a red pickup is one full size truck I will never own. Stunning initially and then gets old and annoying to me with time but to each their own. The Platinum white, although boring and likely annoying to some, is quite sharp in an F450 and stays "looking" clean better and longer than all other colors. Considering it takes quite some time and cash to hand wash this beast that is fairly important. Always classy like black but easier to keep clean on the ranch.
