painting my truck

i'm so excited to get back home and drive my truck. i'm looking into getting a tonneau cover for it and POSSIBLY some side steps or nerf bars. JHo says i should get bigger tires which is always a possibility. it's too bad it just recently had a paint job before i got it, because it's nice but something other than gold would be better (beggars can't be choosers). emma said she didn't really like the gold either. she gave me some suggestions for what color to paint it. i think maybe a navy blue or black. here are some of my novice photoshop skills trying to get an idea of what it might look like (since the paintjob is like shimmery gold, the solid colors look a bit blotchy, but it's a general idea); AND since emma's dad and brother work on cars, i might be able to get them to paint it for cost + a few $$$, and helping with the labor. that'd be cool. i'll be looking into it. anyways, any suggestions on colors?

You don't have it as an option, but I think gray or silver would be nice. And what's with the flip flop back to Emma? You're missing out on some prime GRAW 2 action and Halo 3 is just around the corner. Better take your xbox to the next job site.

I vote blue. Light colors show more dirt.

I think with tan interior, navy blue is the best.

i think that definitely has enough ass already, and if i get bigger tires, it'll have more weight all over, not just in the ass end. i was thinking about just carrying water around in the bed for more weight. 8 pounds to the gallon, ya know.

The truck is tough looking I will admit but bigger tires will really bring it out. I talked to JD and he said Willy always had a big tool box in the back for weight. You do need more weight in the rear either way. Especially when it spin just moving through the side yard. Ask mom. Love ya

I like the blue, but dont waste money on the tires, that is one huge truck and I hope your not going to race like a looney in it as it doesnt handle like a car, keep the speed down and live a long life
