Do not get Black unless you have free time to keep it clean! It looks great but I will NEVER own another black vehicle! All comes down to personal taste, I think white is the way to go!

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
I'm sure your right in all the things you noted about the "Burnt Orange" but it truly is an awesome color. I think of all the options, it is the best looking color. Mine is white because it was a deal so good I couldn't pass it up.

I have the mineral grey and love it. Hardly ever shows dirt also. I do wash it at least every 2-3 weeks.

I like all the colors the ram comes in except white. From driving white service vans in the past, I think of white as a service vehicle color.

My favorite color for the ram is silver. It just looks good, not too flashy, and I like the wheels to match, like the painted aluminum wheels work well.

It depends on the vehicle, if it was a corvette I would want red, or a porche, I would want black.

The only thing I like about a white truck, is it's the only color that the white toolboxes looks good in.

Ummm.....White!!!!! And there are many reasons why. I will give you a few:

1. Looks clean when it's dirty! (Honestly, I will wash my truck and say, WOW, I didn't thik it was dirty!!)
2. It is a common color and confuses the police when they are looking for a white vehicle. (bahaha)
3. When in doubt, go white as opossed to wheft!

Now if that doesn't get a laugh....well............

Good luck on your color choice!

Ummm Sure.... Exactly, I think....

By the way, how do you like the 22" Magnaflow? I had it on my 02 Silverado and it sounded awesome. Great tone, sounded like a truck but was not Loud. how does it sound on your truck? Do you have the 4.7 or Hemi?

Black clean looks the best...for a minute then it is dirty and is the worst to try and keep clean, White is the 2nd best as it is easy to touch up, dont see scratches or swirls like you do on all darker colors and in the summer it is 20+ deg cooler and the AC works way better.

It sounds inicredible, Az!! I have the Hemi with a K&N cai and I love it!! Not too loud, and not too quiet. I can't wake the kids in the morning when I leave the garage, so 22" was perfect for me. You can hear it nicely when you stand on the throttle, but still not too loud. Perfect for me.
