    What do you think looks better? Im 50-50 on it.

    I have a tan tacoma. I'd really like a camper for the winters, and whenever its needed. But I want a hard one rather then a soft top because I need the protection of the hard top. And I like the look of soft top campers better then hard ones so thats why I'm also asking about black.

    Thanks

    I voted color match just because your truck is gold. Do you have black anywhere else? Rims maybe? Tinted windows? If you've got other black, I say go for it!

    Black could be cool if you had black elsewhere on the truck.
    So - if it was gold with black wheels / grill / fender flares that might be pretty cool!

    depends on the color of the truck
    i think with my color truck (red) a black camper is going to look nice since other body parts are painted black also

    If a darker color, color match.

    but for lighter colors, either one would look good IMO.
