    Hello All, I just joined the forum in great anticipation of my next truck purchase which will be a Toyota Tundra ( love it ). My dilemma is this, I have the opportunity to pick up a 2016 TRD PRO double cab for $27,000 and it’s fairly clean, but it’s the Quicksand colorway. And I’m not saying that as a knock, but I don’t love it. I liked it better in person than I thought I would , and it has the sweet leather seats. But will I grow to love Quicksand ? Just wanted some feedback from some proud Tundra owners. Thanks everyone, and I’m happy to be here.

    Welcome. Color is all personal. I say go with your gut feeling. Personally, I would never buy something with the hope that “it will grow on me”. I fell in love with the cement color the first time I saw it and it still puts a smile on my face every time I look at my truck...

    @KnuckleHD I really dig the Cement color too. And I’d agree on gut feeling. But before I had looked at in person I would have sworn to you that I’d hate the color. But I didn’t. I thought if it was blacked out a little more with maybe some Army Green accents on the stamped logo on the bed that it had potential for me to really like it. Thanks for your thoughts. They are appreciated

    Brother, @Tacotundra after checking out the thread of Quicksands at @Ely010606 suggestion I think I’m gonna head back down there on Monday when they open and pull the trigger. It’s not a CrewMax. But it’s a good deal on a great truck.

    @Tacotundra Yeah, I’m with you on the Push coil out back. With the recent price drop it’s even more badass.

    No worries, if you like it go for it. Plus it’s a double cab Pro. I don’t see a lot of those, especially in quicksand. It’d be nice to have a more unique truck than every other tundra driving around. For what it’s worth, I like the quicksand color too. Just liked the cement a little more.
    You’ll be happy you’re getting a good deal too since this site will quickly make you realize how much other crap you “need” for the truck :)
