    White.

    Easiest to keep clean and best resale value across the board. Also, imo, nothing looks better than a white truck trimmed out in black. I can "deal" with chrome on a dark colored truck .. on white it's terrible.

    I went with white, it's easy to keep clean. I came from a black truck that looked awesome when it was clean and shiney, but I couldn't keep it clean for more than a day. I vote white or MGM, I think those look sharp.

    Of those 3 I would say silver, then white, then blue. But MGM rules.

    I wanted silver but MGM was all that was on the lot, and they made me a hell of a deal to move it. As soon as I drove it home, I noticed everyone had silver Taco's.... so I vote "Nay" to silver. Go white or MGM. :cool:

    White is great, just remember you'll have to stay on top of all the tar that will be picked up from the road....

    Radiant Red FTW!

    Can't stand silver but it's sixes on everything else IMO.
    When I was buying mine they had two colors in the package I wanted, either super white or MGM. I liked both but my wife's car is almost identical in color to the MGM so I chose the white to have something different.
    I'm glad I went that way because I've been modding away and really like the black/white contrast.

    The silver that is available now just looks bland to me. If the tacoma came with Thundercloud Metallic or Quicksilver (that came on the Supra) that would be the silver look I'd go for. But since its not, I'd go Super White. My two previous cars were white. White holds up much better over time, not to mention hiding dirt and scratches better. If you were to get into an accident some darker colors are harder to match, especially if it is a metallic color. White is the way to go. I always liked the Indigo Ink, but darker colors dont seem to look as good over the years.
