    Been there, done that and I’ll say it again…

    Black - nothin’ looks better cleaner; nothin’ gets dirtier faster.

    Sorry - the days of me and black trucks is over…lol

    I know it's horrible to take care of but I may have to go black when I upgrade from my 16. My 4runner was mgm and so is my tundra so it'll be time to change. Plus my boat is black so it's gotta match

    I was looking at new some the new videos. I think the rear window rolls down on these. The half wall folds down, but I think the rear window goes down. Did the old avalanche's do that too?

    I honestly thought about doing black and then just spending the coin on a good ceramic coat or full PPF. But I'd rather spend less and color match the parts of the windchill I don't like to make it look good. More I see that WCP the more I enjoy it. Also my F150 is space white so I'm enjoying not having to worry about seeing swirl marks or scratches from a distance like I did our black CRV.

    I don't think the old ones rolled down, but they were removeable If I remember correctly, you had to remove the window and then the back wall would fold down.

    That sounds right. The wall folds on these too. And from the video thought the window retracted. Could also only retract if you are folding down the wall .

    Sounds like something I would drop and shatter my backwindow trying to put it down.

    My truck is a midnight edition Trail Boss.

    Some housewife doing her weekly dusting 3 states over has me heading for the carwash.

    Our Corolla is black. My Tundra is white. I'll never own either color again. I really want my next truck to silver. I've had 2 silver trucks and it's a great color for looks, hiding dings and staying clean. Here in Canuckistan though, the SR5 TRD OR isn't offered in silver from what I can tell. If I go with a '22, I'll probably end up with MGM. I don't mind lunar rock, but I'm not sure if I want to look at it for 10 years.

    Almost all my trucks have been black. I had a dark green F150 SuperCrew once. That was a mistake.

    I live in CO and the "black trucks get dirty too fast" stuff is silly. If you have OCD issues and are always washing your truck, I could see that as a problem. It's OK for your truck to get a little dirty. My truck is usually relatively clean until it snows. I think the hottest two 2022 Tundras will be the black Sport and the black Pro. MGM is second, but black wins easy in my book.

    I'm going to repair my cam shaft leak around this time next year on my 2018 Sport. If surgery goes well, I'll get a supercharger. If surgery goes poorly, I'm going to get a black 2022/2023 Pro. In person, I think the black Pro is going to be the best looking of the 2022s.

    LOL, maybe you're just used to the dirt and water spots on your glasses because black cars don't make it out of the wash bay before looking dirty again!

    Someone on this forum or another briefly mentioned a ceramic wax type product that worked on black vehicles but didn't say any details. I'd love to hear more about that because I do like the way they look (for that moment from the wash bay to the car wash exit).

    Would be interesting to note how this is impacted when someone installs aftermarket exhaust? Is the amplification coming from a microphone close to the manifolds?

    After the car wash, it is helpful to do a little mop up with a rag. Especially with the Leer shell because it's still draining.

    My 4Runner is Red. Salt and Mud don't wear well. Other then this, generally very good with keeping it's appearance between washes. New Tundra is Silver. My other fun ride is silver and its garaged in the winter and no off Road. It does show very well

    Trucks are supposed to be dirty. The more mud the better.
    Nothing shows mud better than white - but black is close. 8^0

    I'm with you on this. Fairly sure I will leave the Tundra Stock. My 4Runner has a Borla Sport and dropped the two lower Cats. On long trips.......can be annoying. The other car has Short Tube Headers into H-Pipe resonator and full Active exhaust. It gets very loud under WOT and Supercharger......but that's why I have it.

    Got to see one in person today at my local dealer. Was hid in their back lot. Here’s some pics along side a ‘21 Tacoma. I think $51k is a lot of money for a SR5.

    That is a great picture of the two side by side.

    It makes you wonder about the styling controversy. The Tacoma's nose looks quite similar to the Tundra.

    I think the tundra looks great still. If you look at the front just remember “cooling” and it’s not so bad lol

    Is it possible to paint the silver trim around the headlights? I'd love to see one blacked out.

    I wanted a faster vehicle so I also bought a Chevy SS... because 4 door sedans with big V8’s are hilarious.
    Yes, and normally I agree.

    That said, there are certain observable actions that are intentional enough to no longer require in depth study to determine the intelligence, morals, values etc of the individual(s) responsible.

    For example I think we can pretty accurately judge a book by its cover when the author titles it: “The Merits of Man Boy Love” with suggestive photos on the cover. That author is a degenerate monster and needs to be exterminated because he’s advocating for sexual predators.

    Squatted trucks are a less odious, but similarly accurate and intentional advertisement of the creator’s intelligence, morals, values, etc.

    No. As far as I know, it's a recording and not the sound of the actual engine. I assume to help appease the V8 lovers who would be annoyed by the vacuum cleaner sound of the TTV6.

    If we get piped in sound I wonder if we could modify the audio we get to listen to?

    I love the sound of the flat 12 Porsche racing engine in the 917. I want that piped in.

    Or maybe the brutal sound of a Mercedes-Sauber C11 twin turbo V8?

    No it should be a sample of real time engine sound. The trims that have the sound enhancement also have active noise cancellation which acts to cancel out unwanted frequencies and works similarly to how Bose headphones work.
