    I have owned my last black vehicle.

    Looks great clean, but a PITA to keep it that way.

    Black if you like to keep truck clean, but if you is lazy, go with silver.

    My last vehicle was black and it was like a full time job keeping it clean. I will say black looks the best when clean.

    Silver! Black needs constant work not to look awfully dirty.

    IF you are OCD about your vehicles get Silver. You will see a door ding on black 100yds away. and if you like a clean vehicle, black is a career. but nothing looks as nice as a clean black vehicle.....for about an hour after its been detailed.

    Last two cars were black. Silver is a vacation. Haven't washed it in three months and the rain does the work and it looks fine.

    I vote Silver but love black. Where I live, black looks good up until you leave the car wash and then life (snow/sleet/dust/birds)gets to it.

    Go with your gut feeling.

    I wanted black, but silver is so easy to keep clean.

    Can't even see the scratches.

    It's not just about keeping them clean, black shows up everthing, door dings, minor scratches and swirl marks, I like darker colors when they are clean, but I try to stay with lighter colors myself.
