i spoke with a dealer who saw a silver one and he said it was gorgeous. his words. i'm leaning with black as that's what my two daughters want or silver as a second choice.Bostonian1976 said:Ya know, I didn't want silver before but I have to say...this looks pretty good. I can't tell if the roof is white or not?
tblopa said:I actually like it better w/ out the white-cap roof. I wonder if that's actually how it will come.
Agreed the white roof is STANDARD...there have been circulating rumors of an ALL BLACK "moab" special edition. IF that one is built it is supposed to be the only exception to the white roof rule.cheazhd said:All FJ's will come with a white capped roof.
You're right the only one thus far without a white capped roof is going to be the special edition released in summer of 2006. That silver one definitely has a white roof. Still looks good though.Toyotaman said:Agreed the white roof is STANDARD...there have been circulating rumors of an ALL BLACK "moab" special edition.

Don't know if this is the eloquence you are speaking of, but here's my reasoning for going with Blue....:Pancho said:Boston you are progressing through the colors about the same way I did. I've ended up at yellow. Someone had an eloquent post last month on why they were going with the blue. Can't seem to find it now. Supposedly the blue grows on you in person. That would be my 2nd choice, but only if there's too long a wait for a yellow one.
FWIW, the blue and yellow are the only two colors unique to the FJC.
zeppelin said:My choices:
1. Black or Silver (need to see in person) -- I personally would rather have a color that either absorbs the black trim or absorbs the silver grille/mirrors. I don't really want the contrast. I'm just curious to see in person how they look and how the white roof looks with them. I would probably consider White if it was an option, too.
2. Black Cherry Pearl or whatever it's called i.e. Maroon.
3. I don't really care for the Blue or Yellow. Too toy-like to me.
I would also strongly consider a pure red if that was an option, and I loved the matte olive green that was at SEMA. Something charcoal/gun metal would be awesome, too.
csherrill said:I thought that I had my color choice decided, since we have had this thread multiple times. And I think after each one I have changed my mind. I originally wanted the silver. But then quickly realized (brain washed by others) that the silver does not create enough of a contrast between the body and the roof. SO then I decided that the black cherry was the way to go although I would go with the black except I didn't want to look like the CHIPS or TxDOT squad cars. SO....now I'm leaning toward the blue...for all the reasons cheazhd mentioned but also those new pics from the Greenville dealership make that blue on the FJ really stand out. Just a heads up Bostonian..but you might change your mind six more times in the next month or so...I believe most of us have gone through this progression.
