    Since I know it was a PITA to look at all the different photos throughout many threads to compare the dozen different shades of blue this truck seems to produce, I figure it would be good to have a dedicated Cavarly Blue thread. Here is my contribution...

    Picking mine up a week from today, but still haven’t seen one in person. The color does seem to have multiple personalities. So, let me ask you, is it more consistent to the human eye than a camera lens? Which of the two pics you posted do you see it being closer to?

    Honestly, you’re going to see the different shades that the camera is seeing. It’s hyper blue at times, and it’s a grayish blue at times. Direct sunlight against the paint is the brighter blue picture.

    All I can say is, it gets compliments on a constant basis. You will not be disappointed at all. Much more impressionable in person than in a photo. The black accents just absolutely set it off.

    It's a bit of a chameleon. Under yellow street lights it looks more like cement, it's much darker looking when cloudy than under bright sunlight, and bright sunlight also seems to bring out this kind of dark tint within the blue that's a bit hard to describe. I saw plenty of light blue fj's back in the day, and this color is way different. And while I was ambivalent about it before, I really have grown to like it. Too late to get another pic, this is mine as of a week ago. Just added Weathertech deflectors since...

    Yep, Part of the graphics package along with the bed decals. I wasn’t sure if I’d like them, but now when I see other Pros, they look naked to me.

    I think the hood graphics pkg looks really badass on the blue. Cavalry blue really does love black! Such amazing contrast. The red Pro lettering on the decals, and door badge is like an exclamation point. On my dearly departed Barcelona red pro it wasn’t nearly as prominent. Getting so stoked to get mine next week!

    If you don’t like the shade of blue you see, walk to the left or right. Or wait 15 minutes for the sun to change angles. This color is amazing, and varied. There must be a lot of different pigments in the paint.

    Awesome color! Not a fan of the gloss wheels but they looked great on the blue.

    It looks complete with the decals. I saw one in person the other day and thought it just looks awesome.
