What is the best colour for a 4WD vehicle, and why?

Which colour do you choose?
What is more important: To blend into the environment, to be visible, to have the best resale value, to hide scratches, to show off dust?

White is the best color for an all rounder I think when it comes to reselling and looks. There are by far more white vehicles on the road than any other color.

For an overlander I think cream is the best color as it will not show the dust like white

khaki, omdat myne daai kleur is :thumbup: :thumbup:

Hou geheel en al nie wan wit karre nie; enigste voordeel wat ek in wit kan sien is dat jy tipex kan gebruik om die krap merke uit te haal :wink:

Die Goue kleur van my dink ek pas noggals mooi in die bos. Cruisers is een van die mees bekendste harde baard nier belt bos bakkies en as ek cruiser dink dan dink ek aan hom in sy Sand/Khaki kleur. Maar as ek nou my voorkeur sou indien sou ek daai charcoal (Graphite noem hulle dit offisieel) kies wat op die huilux, fortuner en cruisers uitkom.
