    I think it looks purple as well and not just on the tacoma's either. Several people have told me I'm somewhat color blind when it comes to dark blues / purples .. ./shrug

    My first Taco was that color. It is light blue. There were earlier year tacos that looked much more purple.

    I've always liked black or silver best, but that color is pretty cool.

    It just means that you are colorblind in one way or another.
