    Need a white truck. My ruby red 2014 SE SCREW is a great truck. Only 48k miles,100k warrantee, and many upgrades. I really like it but am concerned about getting it painted. Will it significantly lower the value? The other option would be a trade for a new truck which might be hard to find the way I need it.

    Why do you need a white truck? What about a white plastidip?

    Appointed to another Law Enforcement post that requires white vehicles + stripping. I could use a pool car but I want something I can leave everything in and I know its maintained well.

    Hey Guys how about taking that awesome truck and wrapping it. It would protect the original color and look awesome with the law enforcement graphics added into the wrap. Me personally would not give up a low miles 100,000 mile warranty Raptor. I bet the law enforcement agency has a place that already wraps city vehicles. You would have the best truck in the fleet!

    Good idea on the wrap, thank you. Complete wrap with really neat graphics for less than 3k. Easy to restore to original color which is protected. I get to keep the truck I really like. No down side that I can see.
