Lettering trucks?

Ok, the color of the truck I am looking at is gray stone metallic. The truck is a Chevy 2500HD crew cab short bed 6.6 auto with the new 6 speed auto Would color should the lettering be? Also how many people plow with crew cabs?

plowing with a crew cab will suck big time IMO, ive been plowing for a long time (yea i know i don't even have my license yet) in just an ext cab and that can be a pita at times.

Ignore people that sit on phone books too drive, plowing with a crew can is fine, just have to be a little more careful, its nice to be able to see out the windows, plus its comfortable.

Yea mike I know what you mean about being a crew cab and plowing. But this is going to be a personal/ work truck. I am leaning more towards an ext cab long bed though. My regular cab is getting small right now, hauling 3 people while doing jobs is kinda of a tight fit.

with the dark grey color i'd think the silver reflective lettering would look sweet i think maybe in the rear windows if your logo isn't that large

just a thought

Both Red and Silver won't have a high enough contrast on grey in my opinion.

If you could incorporate a logo with a white background, the contrast would really show up even at a passing glance.
