New paint, new color?

Having a full body paint job along with body work and upgrades. The work is being performed on my 2001 Ford F250, 4 door, short bed. Upgrades include 05-07 front grill (black), HD headlights, 08 aftermarket square tow mirrors w/ lights. New style tail lights and tailgate with camera and step. Along with front and rear black Powdercoated steel bumpers.

Truck is originally white and I do like the look of white. Especially being in south Texas since it reflects heat well. BUT... I stopped by the body shop today and all the body work is done, bed was loosened and moved back to give access to paint rear cab and front of bed box.

It is probably not much work to switch colors as there was a bit of rust in the rain gutters and he will be painting the door jabs.

If it was your truck would you change the color and if so to what?

I've always liked the King Ranch burnt orange with a tan bottom

I say leave it white! White makes a truck look real sharp! You could do the reverse of a blacked out truck and make everything white (except wheels) those would be polished aluminum!
