    Hey everyone,
    So glad I found this thread. I am hoping to become a Tundra owner in the very near future. But I'm torn with the cavalry blue. I do not want the same color as everyone else (no offense to anyone), but am a bit nervous to go with the cavalry blue. I have seen different photos online, but am wondering if I will regret my decision. My favorite color is the Blazing Blue Pearl, but it doesn't come in the Limited edition that I can afford. I've tried pulling up pictures, but it's hard to find the true color of Cavalry Blue. The manager at a local dealership said if I can get my hands on a cavalry blue to go with it because they are a rare find, almost like a collectible because Toyota only made so many. I cannot find one in my area to look at. Any suggestions or advice you can offer is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Welcome from Arizona. I'd get a cavalry blue truck. I think that it's a great color and that it would look really good with either a color match or a contrasting black grill surround and bumpers. If you decide that you don't like it you can always sell it and get most of your money back since the Toyotas tend to hold their value pretty well.

    Not mine. I'm with the MGM Crue.....I googled cavalry blue tundra. Not much out there. The pic I found looks close to what Toyota has on their sight.

    don't listen to either of those fools. they know not which they speak.

    there is a 4 runner near by in calvary blue that i see occasionally and i knew someone with an FJ in that color. i think it's an awesome color. looks great. if you can find one, do it. otherwise, get a grey one.

    Longer list than the wife needs to know about....
    If you like the color get it. Your the guy that needs to look at it every day as you walk to it. Doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. That blue is like a combo of bbp and cement. it'll be a rare color which you said is something you want I'd go for it.

    The cavalry blue is a nice color, but the manager is stretching it a bit. I don't know where you're located, but I've seen several in the midwest for sale. Good luck, you can't go wrong with a Tundra, regardless of color.
