Opinions on new paint...

Due to rusting and paint peeling I need to repaint my truck. I cant decide on how I should spray it. A few months ago I bedined my rocker panels as an easier way to cover up my bodywork on a few rust holes so there isn't much I can do with those.
The first pic is how my truck is now. I was originally going to just spray it a little darker metallaic silver and gloss black over the bedliner.
The second pic is a 2-tone scheme I am thinking about. Mine will be gloss black from the bodyline down and silver metallic from the body line up.
And the third pic im thinking about doing a throwback to the OBS style and painting it like this. Im not sure how it would look since the bedliner on the rockers might be up too high and look a little off.

What do you guys think, any other ideas.
