Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

That's my reason for getting white over the gray.

Plus I like the high contrast look of the stormtrooper builds.

looks will all be opinionated...

The facts are white is the better color for keeping engine temps down, scratches, dents, dirt, life, etc.

You will end up getting the white cause the MGM is a pain in the ass to find. At least out here it is.

I have a Gray and much prefer any darkish color. Long drives staring at a white hood make my eyes tired.

Wut? It's physically impossible for white to look as dirty as dark colors. You guys need to get off the pot.

White paint is usually harder then darker colors or so I was told.

This...

I have owned several white vehicles...

and without question, white is the most forgiving color on car/truck.

As noted, the white hides scratches, dents,dings, and is one of the easiest colors to repair (paint match)

It's why most homes have painted white ceilings as well.

it's just, sometimes hard to spend 30K (or more) on a new truck and not get a cool color. I had mostly white trucks when I was building full time and running hard. but now, I'm older...move slower...and want some color in my life.

I like the "precious metals" colors

The MGM is a lot like black.

If you enjoy detailing your truck regularly, go for it.

however, if you don't care for a second job...and/or if you off road a lot...go with the white.

I like the white & black trim...if you are going to black out a lot of parts.

White w/ black looks cleaner.

White with the roofrack and black tube steps and other black accents would look great. That would have been my choice if I were to buy now. MGM looks awesome, too. Tough call!
