Mean Green Canteen

I never really liked the Canteen color on the Titan but after seeing some real world photos (not publicity shots) I'm starting to like it. It has a tough, military, outdoorsey type of look to it. The combination of the canteen green of the paint, the chrome of the accents, the metallic of the rims, and the black of the tires and plastics really works well together. They contrast and compliment each other to form a true machine-type look. Kindof like a new tank. I still think I'd go for the smoke color if I were to buy right now, but canteen might surpass that if I see it some more. The smoke isn't my favorite color, but I like the way it shows off the contours of the truck and works well to accent the chrome and wheels. It has a ruggedness too it, but in more of an urban way than the canteen. Originally I wanted the silver, and I still think it looks great, but in a way it dulls out the chrome accent and lights. I guess it just comes down to personal preference, but what do you guys think as far as upkeep goes. Which would be easiest to keep clean. I'm not big on washing the truck every other day so I'd like to be able to get it dirty and not have it seem so bad. I know silver would probably be best for that, but what about Smoke and Canteen. Which of those 2 would be easier to maintain?

SMoke...depending on where you live and the tendancy to get dirty can show it pretty well or hide it pretty well.

Example - a lot of freeway driving and light drizzle the truck still looks 'clean' from 5 feet away....

Go through some pretty good rain and let the sun hit it before removing and some nice water spots develop (I cant stand that so I get home..hose it off and dry it before putting her away at night).

But, both me and momma agreed on the smoke and we really do love the way she looks all cleaned up :cheers:
