What color powder coat?

So I just got my used Rize 12" lift in today...it is a little scratched up so I am going to get it powdercoated...My truck is black with the black harley grille and harley lights...basically the whole truck from bumpers up is going to be a gloss black...

Now question is what color powdercoating do you think would look good?

The shocks are going to be black anodized and chrome..probably fox or icon (cant afford the kings) lol

Thinking about being a little different and going with "black chrome" 22x11 Monsters with some 40 in toyos...

The only parts that are going to be powdercoated is just the rize stuff and springs...also the traction bars that my buddy is going to custom make for me.

I am thinking a dark candy red or monster energy drink green would look pretty cool on a murdered out truck...

What do you guys think?

Candy red, monster energy green looks like a hoped up kid got bored with a spray can.

The red would look good, not sure how the green would look though.

I have never been a fan for wild colors, I would do a Black Chrome, or dark grey pewter metallic. If its any other color thats not a neutral color, plan on keeping the truck showroom clean or its not going to look good.
