    I just wanted to get ideas on what color to paint my new dump bed.

    The color of the cab is white. I put tool boxes under the bed on both side (black).

    Just wanted to know what you guys have.

    Send pictures if you gottem'.

    Thanks in advance.

    Green n grow,

    You had stated that the cab is white, blue and white look outstanding together. White cab, blue dump body and matching blue lettering on the white cab. This color combo is a great attention getter.

    Just my thoughts to consider.

    I think it looks good if the box is the same color of your logo on the truck or the same color your trailer is. If you already painted your tool boxes black than I would do the same to the dump.

    i think black and white is a pretty sharp looking combo.
  5. Black should look good.
    Just finished painting the chip box on my old dodge-orange/white truck. started with white box & got great idea to match it to the truck:eek:
    Somebody said "great pumkin"---- think I'll go back to white:blush:

    HOT PINK! It would be an attention getter. I can hear it now:

    She : Hey Honey, have you seen that Hot Pink dump truck running around?

    He: Uhh Yep. hmmff

    She: When are you going to build that flowerbox? I'll call that guy to bring some topsoil for it.

    He: Ya great, you're standing in front of the television.


    Naw, I vote for black too.

    I like hot pink.

    If that doesn't work go with half red and half blue on the box to match the already white on the cab.

    Red White, and Blue :)
