Hey all. Here we are again. I’ve been set on Oxford White for a while now, with the plan of wrapping the top white. I just like the crisp look of all white with a bit of black.

Red is my favorite color, especially red and black. So I’ve been debating on going race red and keeping the top black.

Sooooo, stormtrooper or Imperial guard?

You are only allowed to get white if you promise to get a “JUICE” vanity plate. =]
Haha, that would be perfect. It’ll be an EMS plate, and sadly KS doesn’t let you customize those.

Wrapping the top white.
Mehhh really.
Its an option but longevity vs. Weather conditions.

I'm not a red color person...
But that red is fantastic imo with the black roof makes an ominous impression!

Interesting choices
White or red...
What looks better dirty?

There is a white Gen 5 Bronco living somewhere in the Phoenix area with the vanity license plate "Not OJ". Mrs @tlowell01 and I were driving home from Eastern Arizona, and I spotted it on the road in front of us. Mid swig of water was probably inopportune time to point it out to her, but we both got a really good laugh out of it!

I never really considered Race Red, but the video of the Race Red Wildtrac from KOH made me rethink my Velocity Blue choice for a minute there. I'm sticking with VB, but man that Race Red looks good!

That's an easy color choice. VELOCITY BLUE! :p

You will regret not going with your favorite color scheme. Imperial guard should be your choice. Personally, I’m going Oxford white but I’m wrapping it with a glitter white and eventually selling and changing the top out. But my color scheme is white and dodger blue. Go with Red.

White and black is always a good look.

Red needs chrome, polished stainless or aluminum. Red and just black doesn't work as well. Put chrome wheels on and see how it looks.


This is why I chose Velocity Blue. (y)

Personally, I think Ford should rename Velocity Blue to Cubbie Blue!

I don’t think you can go wrong with either choice - they are both awesome.

Not to be a killjoy but - You are not going to be able to wrap the MIC top - the texture will not accept a wrap (it will need to be painted). The gloss black top can be wrapped but if you plan to remove it frequently the wrap likely won’t hold up very well. Good luck with your decision.

Thanks all for the input. I made a poll on my Facebook and Instagram, Oxford White won on both. My wife also prefers white, but she knows I'll do whatever I want, haha.

@3Dogs, Darth Maul is one of my favorite characters, hmmmm.

@Bronco5.0, my old Mustang was race red, and had chrome wheels. I do agree the race red does look good with chrome. I'd definitely break the black up a bit.

@Bschurr, I'm getting the pained modular top.

Velocity blue is always a good choice as well, as some of you stated, but I like blue as more of an accent color. My Mustang was silver with blue accents.

I've got one month to figure it out, wish me luck. :LOL:

White. Definitely white. White all the way.
Full disclaimer: I’m getting Race Red (maybe).
