Sounds like sonic blue but i dont know if it was used that early. I know it was out by the early 2000's though. It's a blue base with a purple pearl or flake over top

Sounds like the truck may have been repainted with either a blue paint with purple metallic flakes, purple paint with blue metallic flakes, or some other higher end paint that vehicle manufacturer's normaly don't use due to cost.

burple is a real color, but it could be a red pearl in the clearcoat of a blue paint job. both of those are aftermarket, not factory paint. if its factory paint, its probably uv damage to a Caymam blue

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Dang, ya'll are fighting over the color of the truck and you haven't even seen it lol. At least wait til you see a pic to start the fights lol. Even with pics it won't matter much (unless it was painted) but really need to see what the paint code says on the door. That will tell you if it's been repainted or not. I would hope someone wouldn't pick that color out of a million other colors that are not purple... Unless you like purple.... Which I don't except for crown royal bags. That's the only exception...… Well.....

@PetroleumJunkie412 is never wrong.

No man building a killer 2.9 can ever be wrong.
Let it be marked in the record that in post #25 of the thread "What Color is this?" member "rusty ol ranger" was wrong... twice. :icon_cheers:

I think Deep Wedgewood Blue can kinda go either purple or blue depending on lighting.
