    First off all, no pics...Sorry!

    But today I was driving down the road and look over at the car wash line and saw a 2nd gen that was a color I have never seen before. It looked like the desert sand (I think...the tanish color) but it had more green in it.

    Now that I went on the toyota website it looks like the Pyrite mica may be it. I have never seen it before in person, is it a new color?

    Hmm thanks for the link, I am still not positive that is it, this one looked more tan/green. I will keep my eyes open for it again since i live in a tiny town

    No that is the wierd thing, It looked lighter than any of the tacoma colors except for desert sand, and it was darker than that. It really did look like a exact mix of desert sand and timberland mica.
