    You would also need the Mary Kay sticker in the rear window. LOL



    In all seriousness how do you intend to use the truck and are you into keeping it clean and shiny?

    With a question like this and
    Judging by his avatar? He already has enough self esteem issues?
    Seriously buy the color you like not what everyone else wants?

    To answer 95SLE
    I am guessing chrome and shiny...So i would go with White but find it with black interior and Black out the windows....maybe sum 20's...

    While your at it have your Mom buy you teh Non TRD just the SR5 and buy you a blower...If she is gonna spend the money might as well do it right?

    White is easy. Black is another story. Makes you have a real love/hate relationship with the truck. LOL

    It all seriousness white or gray. They are the easiest to keep clean and look good. If you get black good luck keeping it clean and keeping the swirls, spider marks, and holograms off it.

    If you're concerned about resale value, silver is #1.


    But maybe Toyota will mix you a special color, like Gangsta Green. That should go well with some gold wire wheels.

    I guess the best color would be the color it is . Is the the best color for my tastes NO but they didnt have grey in 06 . I know red is the fastest and blue is the coolest yellow is the brightest but I dont see any thing as black or white its all grey . Just like my kids call B&W tv , grey TV . I see their point .
