Go for it. A lift, satin finish, black wheels and black flares are a must tho'.

I vote no.
That color looked awesome on the older pickups, but it doesn't blend well with the Tacoma's.

I agree. Was going to give the big thumbs up on this until I saw the pictures from the link Jamie posted on page 2. I think it's because the old models look more industrial/machine/metal while the new ones are too plastic/consumer.

I think it needs something to break up the color. Needs the "camo" aspect.

What is people's fascination with military camo junk haha strictly for beaters as a joke IMO. Cammo, especially in clothing, just says little kid's Army bedroom to me.

Might look better with eeeeeverything done in desert sand - wheels, bumpers, mirrors, trim, etc...

No black on this vehicle except for the tires

It'd be cool to have like a machine gun prop on the good or something like the mustang in death race. Need a tombstone shield on the back too lol. Would really set off the look. Definately need some armor to go with it though.

It would look far better with plate bumpers (front & rear), rear bumper tire carrier, square tube sliders, external roll cage, and a ring mount.
