I'm team stock as well. That combo is awesome.

My Suburban is the inverse of your truck :lol: Well that and my pinstripe is gray instead of your red one. Whenever I finally get around to fixing all the rust and getting it repainted, the 'burb is keeping its' stock colors.

What rust? :Big Laugh:

Anyway, I vote stock colors. Maybe a stock color 2 tone?

I am partial to the stock two tone. I think I will ask if the black can be changed to a very dark metallic gray. If it's in my budget then I will go for that, otherwise I am fine with a repaint of the stock colors.

I made some coloring pages, got some dollar store markers and went to town!
I wanted to play with color schemes so I took some pictures of another Dually that was perfect, Downloaded a program to turn the image into a coloring page.

I appreciate everyone's feedback - at the end of the day, I chose to keep the original two-tone; there's something about it that I think is classy but at the same time distinct. I'll be sure to post pics when I pick her up!

I'm usually in favor of 2 tone, but your colors combo doesn't win me over-Idk why-maybe the wheels don't work with it. I generally think 2 tone is more of a classic,and I'd see it on classic wheels-so for yours I'd probably chose single color. However you said you're thinkin about lifting it, so maybe she'll get a different wheels too and then it will all make sense. I see you chose already so disregard my 2 cents lol.
