    We've already met the quote for silver. Black is pretty close too. I wish I had gotten the dark blue or the bronze, but I'm with the silver.

    I think you'll find the answer to that question varies with whom you ask.

    Kind of partial to the speedway blue myself.

    Now that's just not true. It's a scientifically proven fact that Impulse Red Pearl is the best color. I won't bother showing proof because this should be a well known fact by now.

    It appears that I'm the only one to regret my color choice. I guess that's what I get for letting my wife influence me.:mad:

    Pink Taco's are always the best. If its black or blue or silver then you have issues.

    The other colors may look better new, such as red and blue and black. But in time, red is notorious for fading. Besides, although I love black, it's just a pain to maintian. After a wash and a drive, you'll have something that is apparent on the body's paint. Drive through any standing water or a gutter. Or just in traffic, then you'll see a haze of dust.

    I got silver because it's easy to clean, looks good when clean, and has grown on me even more. It also looks good after many years.

    For these reasons, silver is the "best" color to get. It's not just the now you're living for. You may end up with this truck for many years. Choose wisely.


    Plus, the silver flakes are made of Titanium and thus impervious to scratches and has destroyed all crash test barriers and most women love the color and your life will be wonderfull upon selection of this color.

    It possibly cures vanerial disease too, but is only rumored to do so.

    My truck is desert sand mica. I live in the desert. The color belongs to the desert. Desert dirt blends with it nicely. My latest research demonstrated that the color increases gas mileage 7% when the dry heat air temperature reaches 102 degrees, which occurs frequently May - Sept. Something to do with density of air and surface temp. of the desert dirt. Less drag on the vehicle with comparable surface temperatures and like colors. Thats' my story and I'm sticking to it.

    Aaaah, that's my problem. I get shitty gas mileage because I have a black truck...what I really need is a white truck, cause there is snow on the ground 8 months of the year.
