Desert sand paint job. Opinions?

Hey Guys,

I am thinking about get the tacoma painted a desert sand (desert camo) color. Anyone ever seen a tacoma like this before? Wondering what it would take to get it looking good.

What do you guys think??

Go for it especially if you cruise in the desert where it makes sense.

I think it'd look great, but I'm not sure if it really makes any sense for anyone outside of law enforcement and smugglers.

The FJ comes in a Tan called Quicksand. I like that or the dark green. Will do one or the other when the time comes in another 5- 10 years.

When I was shopping FJs, those were the two colors I wanted. I'd go for a satin finish, though.

Yeah but it's glossy. If you're going with an Earth color, it has to be matte. Looks sick.

I would say go for it, OP. Look at this guy's truck with OD Green vinyl wrap, may be an option. But if you're offroading in the brush it may tear.

I had a Dodge Dakota that I painted Olive Drab and put white stars on the hood and doors. I loved it, got lots of "thumbs up" on it. I'll post pictures when I find them.

Yeah you can do the plastidip paint job, I think dipyourcar.com has this color. If your gonna do this, you gotta do it all out. Every visible thing should be painted, like they do with military vehicles. Wheels and everything. It would look sweet
