I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
never saw a RV ranger, seen plenty of toyotas back in the day with a RV body, saw one without the body that was made into a flatbed, kind of cool- dually flatbed mini-truck. Im considing a way to mount my engine hoist in the back of my bed, like a wrecker boom. have something heavy to move. (yes, I wish my allis had a 3-point hitch, a boom would do the job on the back of the tractor) One of these days I’ll build a 3-point or buy a kit.
-Weld some 2x2 to the bottom of your cherry picker and slide it into the trucks receiver.
-Run ratchet straps from the top of the cherry picker to tie down points in the bed.
-Lift heavy item and drive away.

Here are some I had on my phone. The grey ranger has been painted about a dozen times now going from all yellow, to black and yellow, to yellow again, now they took camper fenders and cut them in half for the rear fenders.... This truck gets painted every week something different I swear. The rest are just funny for the most part.

I saw an F150 today on my way to work that was a color I don't believe I've seen before. I didn't get a picture... but I liked it enough I had to search it up online. It was a non metallic grey that had a green tint to it and the trim and grill were black. Looked really good in my opinion. I believe they call it Lithium Grey.

Have I been living under a rock? Seems this color has been offered since 2017 on F150's. Must not be to popular... or is my rock been blinding me for a couple years?

It's called "lead foot" gray.

I had to look into this a bit more... just because it is stuck in my mind. I've seen the lead foot gray... though I didn't know the name until I started looking last night. Perhaps blinded by the rock and the fact I haven't been in the market for a new truck in years... I swear a color option got past me. I like most all of the new non metallic colors they're all using these days... and that F150 I saw yesterday... it was a green gray opposed to a gray grey <----- who cares how it's spelled.

From a F150 forum... I see threads going for both

Lead Foot Gray <---- 4/18 thread start date
30568


Lithium Grey <---- 9/16 thread start date
30569


I really like the Lithium Gray... but it seems it has came and went already.

I stand corrected.
They both look nice. I like the lead foot a little better.

Grey, gray... both spellings are acceptable.

Nothing wrong with battleship gray except for the appearance packages required to attain it. I like the recent trend towards non metallic colors, it makes bodylines look crisper and less fuzzy.

Toyota has a neat non metallic tan (sandstone) and dark green (army green) I like too. Meanwhile Ford sits in the corner eating erasers wondering what new metallic silver they should come up with to go with the other 50 shades of gray they already have.

Dodge and Toyota seem to have a few NON-metallic paints, They seem to be a new trend. Remember when you had top pay extra for the metallic paints and mow they charge extra for the Non-metallic. Same thing with the "black-out" options, they charge more for chrome, then they charge more for NO chrome.

I've always personally loved black paint but I'm really lazy so everything I own is white... I've considered painting my mustang black cause it stays in the garage, but it's just not a "mustang" color.
