choosing color scheme / theme for truck

Well, I am having a heck of a time deciding a "theme" (if that is the right word) for the interior (mostly) of my new 2012 taco.

By theme I guess I mean like an overall scheme/color that will tie the truck together and make it unique and "mine".

I like Carbon Fiber pattern, it looks cool and is the known standard of high performance. But, not trying to be offensive, is it too "ricey" or "fast and furious?" Those cars are cool, but i dont really think the f n f look is for tacos.

My other thought, and I'm kind of leaning this way, is an urban digital camo, in white, grays, and blacks. Like this....

Dont do carbon. It doesnt fit the truck at all imo. And unless the pieces are actually constructed of real cf, I think that makes it worse.

What about alcantara?

what are you planning to re-do on the interior?

well that was a nice fail at image attaching, lolz

anyway, i imagine I'd use the pattern on a few trim pieces, door panels, console lid, key fobs, and maybe the top of the windshield. Maybe the mudflaps and front valance, too, if i can figure out how.

Alcantara looks nice. Man, the more I look to narrow the choices, the more I think/dream about, lol.

I might be able to get a line on some hydro-graphic places to do the digital.

CritterTRD, I thought of the hardwood style and there are some nice fabric choices for it as well if i were to re-do the seats, etc. I think the hardwood camo has more of a real camo feel to it. Whereas the urban digital, to me, communicates a more modern feel with less actual camouflage. I guess I am more into the art / statement of the digital camo than its actual cloaking / hiding ability. I mean, i don't think I'm going to hide a truck.

Besides, around here in deer country, if you get realtree on your truck you better know the difference between buck, a doe, and a fawn.....And I don't really.

Thanks for all the idea gang, keep it coming.
