Paint Scheme Pic Request

Okay guys I am getting ready to do a color change on my 06. Right now i have the lariat two tone paint scheme, white up top with the silver on the bottom. I am looking to go a darker gray on the bottom and keep the white. Our 2013 escape is the sterling gray color and I really like it....

Any thoughts?

Anyone have any pics of a real dark color two toned with white with dark on bottom and light on top?

Thanks for the input!

Nick

Ever think about painting the top half of your truck silver/gray (above the door line) to match the silver on the bottom? That would be a cool look (granted it would cost a little more) but would be different from everyone else.

If that's not your thing, then a darker grey like the sterling would look pretty good too!

I had thought about something like that as well but I thought it may look a little like a const. Co. Or like a fleet truck with the white sections running down the side. I don't know haha. But I like the input. Hoping to combine all input for a kick *** look

Any luck finding pics? Have you considered wrapping the bottom with vinyl? I just ordered some 3M vinyl to be printed off to match the Arizona Beige on my truck so I can wrap my bumpers.

If you do the whole bottom, then you can order the standard colors for much cheaper and even do your bumpers. Something like a dark brushed metallic would look pretty good IMO.
