New Paint color?

Hey guys so this summer Im going to be repainting my truck again

My first round at body work and getting a cheap paint job done wasnt gonna last long but hey at least it lasted two years. lol, just all the imperfections bug the crap out of me so it will be done right this time

Anyways Im having trouble deciding what color I want, its either going to be the same dark metallic green on there now

or dark metallic grey

possibly black but dont really want two black trucks

or if you guys think a different color would look good post it up, Im just looking for opinions

here are some pics of the truck for those that havent seen it a million times. lol

Oh and Im gonna go all monochrome, I want to paint the mirrors and windshield trim as well and get rid of the polished center plate on the tailgate

Also if someone would be able to photoshop the different colors on the truck that would be awesome!

thanks!

haha I can tell this is still gonna be a hard decision. Thanks for the input guys, hopefully I can get plenty more opinions since I still have at least two months before I paint it
