    Had a mustard colored PreTaco.
    Had a black PreTaco. Too hot & always looked dirty
    Have a white PreTaco. It can hide an incredible amount of dirt.
    Have a silver Taco. White was my second choice, but got my first choice so it wouldn't blend in with snow.

    Welcome. I would have to go with white myself, I had a white Frontier and loved the easy upkeep on it. I considered white on my Taco but went with the Silver which is what I wanted anyway.

    it would be black. the Sport models are colormatched. it would have a black bumper as well.

    and Welcome! you're not the same Air Force member from pikeville that i bought a fender stratocaster off craigslist from this summer are you? if so, i really like it! thanks! if not, ignore that lol.

    Nope sorry thats wasnt me. I am into the white but tempted by the black as long as it is colormatching. I havent found a black TRD sport in raleigh yet.

    Things and stuff and such
    Welcome from Charlotte. I wanted a black tacoma really bad but I'm glad I didn't get one. Too much work to keep it looking good.

    The TRD Sport has colormatched grille, mirrors, door handles, and rear bumper. The other models have chrome or black.
