I had a white/gold 97 2x reg cab XLT Long box for about 8 months. I was never really satisfied with it. When I saw my current 98 Lariat, Dark Toreadore Red 4X4 Ex cab 5.4, on the lot it was love at first sight! This color has such depth and a richness when it's clean and waxed! This time of year in Michigan however, it's tough to keep it that way.

My wife wanted a solid color, I wanted the two-tone. Well...to make a long story short we ended up with the solid Pacific Green color and the Willow Green interior. After seeing the solid color for a while it looks ok. I still like the two-tone, maybe our next Ford will have it. Haven't seen to many F-150's w/ the Willow green interior lately, I am glad we decided on this color, it seems like everybody has the gray interior, we just wanted to be a little different.

I ordered a solid harvest gold 2 WD supercab ( my dream truck), six weeks later I'm told it still had not been schedueled. PO I told the dealer to cancell the truck. On my way out I saw the prettiest two tone Chestnut (Chestnut is a new color for 2000) and gold combo super cab and my heart done done flip flops.
Sooo here I am and tickled pink. Whoops I think thats Chestnut!!! Have a happy Y2K
Just saw an interesting color combo I had not seen before.
It was a gray with charcoal wheel well moldings. It looked pretty good actually.
The next day I saw an expedition w/the same color combo. Must be a new 2000 thing ?
I also saw a black F-150 that had a custom black w/charcoal wheel well molding & lower portion painted, but did not have moldings, just painted to look like it did. Pretty nice also.
Eat your heart out, Sean.

I like two-tone as well - Moonlight Blue over Moonlight Blue. Wait, that don't count does it? Okay - how 'bout Moonlight Blue and a lot of chrome? Or Moonlight Blue with a lot of chrome and grayish plastic trim pieces? Nevermind - make mine solid color....
