2-tone paint on 2003 trucks

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if 2-tone paint is even available as an orderable option on the 2003 Chev. or GMC trucks?  Thanks.

Yes for a light duty truck (1500,1500HD,2500LD) and a regular bed, not a step side.  I don't think you can get the two-tone on base models but LS, SLE up  :thumb:

gave20,

 

Thanks for the reply.  I guess I should have been a bit more specific since it might be a hinging factor.  Can a person order 2-tone paint on a 2500HD?  Thanks.

My dad just bought an '03, regular cab, 8 ft bed, SLE and he was told two-tone paint was unavailable.  He ordered it and didn't buy it off the lot.  He was pretty disappointed about the single tone paint.  Damned nice truck, though-  5.3, all options, metallic burgandy.

Jleosnow- no, on HDs you can't get the two tone option.

Thanks, I guess that confirms what I thought.... :crackup:  Funny how they will build a 1500HD with 2-tone but not a 2500HD ???

I've seen some HD's with 2-tone paint that was done aftermarket...  The best one that I remember is a a 2500HD crewcab longbed 4x4 Summit White over Light Pewter and the flares were painted pewter...  that was a sweet looking truck!!!

I have 2-tone paint on my 2500HD, but I couldn't get it from the factory. I was told way back in Nov 2000 that the 2-tone option was discontinued, which meant I had to have the body shop paint it once the truck arrived. Turned out great, the black w/ charcoal gray really looks sharp, in my opinion.  :crazy:  Just a word to the wise, if you order a truck that comes from the factory with black wheelflares and intend to have it 2-toned, order another set of flares in the lower color right form the start. I passed that option up and had to wait 3 weeks after I got the truck for the new flares to come in.   :banghead:
