    Hi everyone. I came from tundrasolutions over to this,new to me, forum and I have to say its refreshing. I've had a black 07 double cab and currently have a 2010 sky silver double cab with 98,000 miles and both have been trouble free. Simple oil changes and front brake pads only. I'm a contractor and regularly pull a 14' dump trailer load with my 773 bobcat or 8000 lbs. of construction debris. These trucks simply don't quit! So it's time for a 2015. Sr-5 is fine and the cloth seats hold up pretty good. My problem is what color to get. Black it out because too dirty all the time. Silver is great to hide dirt but tired of silver. I'm leaning towards white with some 20" black Gear wheels on 305/55/20 Nitto grappler G2's. Any pictures and imputs are appreciated.

    My number one choice would be blue, I think it's ribbon blue or something and then the brown root beer color. That dark blue is so sharp though.

    Welcome from Aurora, CO. Can't go wrong with white. If I was going to buy a new Tundra I would go with white. Contractor's best truck color. IMO.

    Can't go wrong with either White or Red. I'd go red if given the option, holds up well, looks great and it is different than your traditional color

    A lot easier to maintain/clean. Being a contractor you will be exposing your truck to potential scratches daily. I always thought you could swing a better deal on white. At least that's the way it used to be. You could just buy a white Tundra and another spare Tundra in Red like the one above. :infantry:

    I really like it too. Kind of fancy for a truck used in construction work.

    I'm going with white on graphite. Sr-5, TRD. I'm wondering if $36 k is a good deal? 5.7 and 4x4.

    I can respect all the colors suggested. Everyone has their favorite color. Not a coincidence that it's the color of their truck. My 09 Taco was Magnetic Grey Metallic. Very cool. My 07 Tundra is Slate Grey Metallic. Also very cool. But once you mentioned "contractor", there was only one way to go..........WHITE. Neutral in color. Easy to maintain. Compliments most anything. I think (know) if you get this truck you will not regret it.

    $36K seems to be a fair price, plus they hold their value. Most of the used Tacos and Tundras for sale around here are always somewhat higher then KBB value. Jeep Wrangler used prices are ridiculously high here in the Denver Metro area. Dealers have a hard time getting used Tundras/Tacos and when they do the are gone lickity split.
