    I’m seeing more and more blue Tacoma’s. It wouldn’t me my first choice, but those in the know (suppliers PPG and BASF) believe it’s a growing trend.

    Most rankings I’ve seen list blue a little ahead of red and behind white/silver/black/gray. But PPG predicts, “Blue is poised to take a bite out of white and other popular colors such as black and silver/gray.”

    And, according to BASF, “If you're in North America and you end up buying a car in the 2022 model year, it's likely to be painted a deep blue hue.”

    So, Atomic Diesel’s oldest son’s color selection, either by choice or by chance, puts him on the cutting edge. Congrats.

    I searched for blue when I was buying mine last year, but couldn’t find one in the TRDOR with the long bed.

    Thanks fellers for the kind words and positive affirmations. I played in Uncle Sugar's gun club for a few years, a long time ago. Three things I have tried to reach my kids: Always be grateful, stay humble, and seek the tough duty. My son has definitely done that, and is a professional firefighter/medic. My old wrinkled hind parts ain't running into no house fire- he's my hero.
