    At first I was a little pissed. Dealer told me the truck they were getting in for me was Black. When I saw it it looked blue.

    I've grown to like the color but haven't seen too many Taco's the same color. Is it rare or am I just not seeing them?

    I've been thinking about getting a topper put on the bed of the truck but I'm dreading the thought of someone trying to match it up with the truck.

    exactly!!!

    Mine is almost like a dark blue with a lot of metallic flakes in it. At times it looks "almost" black but for the most part it looks blue.

    Why can't they just call it dark metallic pearl blue?

    Hard to tell from that photo.

    I will say after having had three Toyota trucks, the last two of which were metallic colors, BSP (2000) and my current 2009 MGM, the black and the MGM both are a bit chameleon in appearance, depending on the time of day, outside conditions, clean or dirty, position of the sun...
