    okay today i was walking around campus and i saw a 1st Gen double cab that was like a Burnt Orange Color.....i left my phone in the truck so i didnt get a picture but if i see it again ill deff get a picture. I was just wondering if the truck has been painted this color. All the emblems looked legit and in the rite place. even the TRD bedsides looked rite. it had factory wheels and all, and it was a older gentleman driving it. so did they make this color from the factory or has it been repainted.? cause if it has somebody did a great job doing it.

    If it's a double cab then it's a 2001-2004. There was no orange offered from the factory. It must be custom.

    I love that color. My powerstroke was that color. If my tacoma is ever painted, this is the color it's gonna be.

    2001, 2003, 2004 - didn't show it in the brochure. Radiant Red can look orange in some light but not like what you showed on the card.
