    White is the most popular commercial truck color, but all my trucks used to be black and now I have all white trucks :( except for my black sierra, but it always looks good in my opinion especially after a wash and wax:) It does have some scratches on the bed but they are all hairline and you only see them if you get real close. IMO its easier to keep my black truck looking good opposed to my white trucks, seems like they need washed every other day:cry:

    Why did you switch from black to white?
    How do you like the change?

    I like a black truck . I have a black diesel excursion and it looks great when its washed .
    The dirt isn't so bad but the dents and scratches really show .
    I like red the best it seems to all ways look new .
    I dont like white at all but i have had a few white trucks .
    My dump is dark blue . John

    Its what they had at the dealer, seems like most reg cab/long bed trucks are either white or red. Its okay but at the end of the day if they could of been black they would of.
