    I am taking my truck in to get painted. I planned on changing the color from a two tone to all white. But I got to thinking, since all my advertizing is done on a yellow background (yellow grabs attention). I was thinking about painting the truck yellow as well.

    Here is a picture of my truck, my designer has changed the colors for me. Please tell me whick one you like best.

    That's the first vote for yellow. Looking at in Photoshop, so might as well look at all the diff. colors, while I'm there. Nice truck!

    That yellow truck is a stand-out! Seems like every business in the world goes with nice safe inoffensive bland white trucks. (Mine is) Going with the crowd isn't always best.

    I think the "Truck" stands out more in yellow. But the logo and lettering and grass dude stand out better on the white. So I voted for white.

    Not that you thought about getting different rims, but are there any that you would want to see on your truck? (going out to get diff. ones, and just see how they look on it............. truck looks kind of good in black)

    Also, If I went with yellow, I would paint the trailer yellow too.

    So far my business cards, door hangers, and lawn signs are yellow. My designer put together a sign for the trailer gate on yellow and that is what got me thinking. I told him the yellow would not look good with the truck being white. I then thought, well maybe i'll have the truck painted yellow, since it is getting painted anyway.

    Still not sure myself though. White is a safer choice :)

    I think white is probably best considering future truck purchases.
