    ^^^ good lookin truck. hard to tell the difference between your color and mine. might be the pic like u said. is yours supposed to look more of a grey or blue? makes my think of the blue-ish/grey-ish interior of my truck. some people say it looks blue, some say grey. but dealership says blue.

    Mine is a toss up between blue, purple, silver, and grey. Though mine has a purple base coat as my engine bay is clearly purple lol. I'd say mine is blue but yours is more blue. If that makes sense.

    hell, mine was dangled in front of me like a horse and a carrot for 10 years by my family... i was told it was gunna be mine once i turned 16 when i was 14 and my dad was teaching me to drive it... got tired of hearing "it'll be yours next year" every single year for 10 years, so i bought the damn thing from the old man!

    Sadly, mine is currently in the body shop for a replacement bumper,tow hitch, and shackle mount. This is due to a careless driver rear ending me.

    good looking truck
    i went with the clear head lights w/ some silverstar ultras to keep it stock looking which lead me to create my 98-04 hybrid look. the only other swap i may do is this valence for a 4runner valence w/ fogs. but i still dont know what year, if any, fit this bumper.

    I see a lot of folks with the black accents. It just doesn't look right to me. I like the metallic paint with chrome. Especially the horizon blue with chrome, just my opinion.

    IMO chrome brings out the purple more, the black brings out the blue more

    i got super tired of people calling her purple... plus i hate chrome lol. my 99 ford ranger was ALL chromed out, mexican style (i bought it from one) and i'm just over chrome. i like the black out. can't wait to do my wheels as soon as i can acquire a jack and some stands

    I know i can't stand when people call that color purple and i was about to paint my truck the newer Toyota blue idk what it's called but i found out this color is pretty rare so its staying this color
