    I'm looking to get a silver Taco. I had a red '06 that got hit and thought that these seat covers would add a little color to what I plan to buy. Opinions?[​IMG]

    I would go with light grey, possibly black.

    OK, my second choice was charcoal/black, but those choices seem a bit boring. Guess I'll see what my wife thinks. I need something as I run and don't want the seat to get smelly.

    I hear ya on the borring. I think it would match the truck interior and exterior pretty good. Matter of fact I have a SWB DC and I'm on the WO group buy list to order mine. Going with blue and light grey w/ black piping for my choice of colors. I attached two pics the first is someone elses that I think you might like. Second is the same pic, but photoshoped (not perfectly) of the color combo I'm trying to go with.

    Yeah, there is no accounting for taste, but I thought that the blue went well with the skin diver material. I'm also on the wish list.

    I had the brilliant red AC '06 until someone decided to total it. What is available now is the silver, which is OK but a little bland. I thought some color would help.

    It's up to you what you like. Personally I like everything to flow pretty good and some colors work well. I tempted with red/black for awhile but decided to go the 'bland' route for charcoal/black. In the long run, I'm happier with it. It almost seems stock, but it's a hella lot nicer than it was. Once I get my black leather arm rests and such... should flow even better. I wish there was a full black interior option from the factory :sigh:

    You should post some pics of your ride (exterior and interior) and maybe someone could give you more ideas on colors, I'll give it a shot too.

    I'd tend to agree for anything but a silver Taco. From your picture, it doesn't look like you have the silver. With the silver outside and all the gray inside, I think I would need a change. And the black and moderate blue struck me as appealling.
