    It is a little off but I like swb and it'd be pretty cool since toyota didnt offer it on your truck. You'll need new wheels and stuff on your truck once it's painted though. ;)

    That photoshop color doesn't do it any justice. That's more like a boohoo baby blue. If you're gonna go this color - do it metallic and either match the SWB or go a royal blue.

    i think everyone is hitting this one on the nose. it's geh! lol, j/k the photo shop doesnt look right. its much too bright. it reminds me most of the voodoo blue on the fj that was mentioned before. Kinda reminds me how every honda owner wanted si blue back in the day. I think the actual color would look good. Exept that it would scream: THIS AINT NO STOCK CoLOR. I voted do what you want, so that's my opinion. wonder how long that photo shop took. ps... my 4 year old son says, "it kinda looks cool". A 4 year olds opinion is crutial here.

    hahhahah.... Colorado????

    There is not another color I would rather have. I just wish there were not 3 others the same color on my street. Silver is a great color if you just want to blend in. Blending in is something I have never been able to do. I have a Pacific Blue Rocker C, Green Kawasaki Ninja, I like colors that stand out from the crowd. I have had every color car you can think of. Not everyone likes every color.

    I didn't mean to go buy new... I just meant, if you have the money to get it painted Speedway Blue then GO FOR IT!!! who cares what others say or think of the color. If you like it, its your truck.... Paint it and be happy...

    I am a firm believer in spend money, get what makes you happy. You can always make more money later. I will NOT be on my death bed with a mind full of "I wish I would had's"

    Is it still going to be white under the hood and in the door jambs? Costs a lot of money to completely change a vehicle's color. I wouldn't change the color..
