I would have to agree that white appears to stay clean the longest. The only thing I don't like about white on a truck is that the color is far too common because almost every work truck on the rode is white. I have the mineral gray, and it hides dirt fairly well. Like lficke, I have two boys that will wash mine....just not so willingly.

Obviously I'm biased towards silver lol but honestly, I can go without washing my truck for 2-3 weeks and really can't tell it's even dirty.

I have a 2010 SLT work truck right now. It's silver and I can go forever without washing it. I think it's going to be White. It will show more dirt than Silver but will make me wash it more often like I should be.

Grey or White. Silver is to generic; it seems like everyone drives a silver vehicle nowadays. I like white personally, but the slate looks damn good too.

as you might have picked up i am biased towards the hunter green color. out of the three colors you listed i would prefer white. i have owned a couple of white cars and they don't show the dirt like many would think. it is a very easy color to maintain. here is the only downside to white that i have experienced, on that nice saturday late afternoon that you spend washing, waxing and polishing your white truck, the white color doesn't produce a deep rich luster that you get on the darker the colors. for me that was kind of a let down. this being said, white would have been my second choice when i bought my 11 sport.

Just be glad that you don't have the color that is on my Ram, Sunburst Orange, it used to be called Burnt Orange
It shows dirt all the time, i wash it & the guy in the apartment above the garage sweeps the landing up there & my Ram gets a coat of dust & dog hair
The paint has so many swirls on it that it looks like someone was trying out some crazy design thing
I go onto Truck Stop property & they have these lights that don't have a white glare, it is more like an off yellow. Those lights turn my Rams color into a color that is grayish brown, i try not to look at the color when it is parked under that type of lighting.
During the daylight or under regular lights, it is a beautiful color
