    Who cares...It comes down to what you want to drive! I would guess white would not be great, but it you wan't it you could plow with it and a strobe light

    White is the easiest to keep clean. The darker the truck the faster it looks dirty. Have owned black,dark red,dark green,maroon,brown,fire engine red and have white now. Black is the most work to keep clean.

    Actually white seems best. I have a dark green and the impact of snow hitting the side of the truck when plowing leaves white scratches in the clearcoat.

    Pink. Go buy a pink truck. Or atleast one with pink polkadots. Argyle is another good option though.

    I agree... Its like by buying a red truck over a blue truck your going to make more money. Your paying for it, and your the one whos going to be driving the truck. Its your choice.

    Don't know you will have to ask Westernboy...

    Maybe he means visabilty while plowing.. if that is the case maybe a yellow or orange like state/muni's use....

    Mine's two-tone brown with hints of rust...

    I'll never lose it in a parking lot, that's for sure.

    Sand it to bare metal, give it a good salt rub with a hint of water... let it cure for 1 yr. then clear coat it, cover the seats in tan cowhide. Call er done! Gives it that great old look! :salute:

    Well what do you mean by this... good color for visability... good color for hiding how dirty the truck gets... be specific on why you want to know.. other wise you will get the answers you have gotten already...

    If it is visibility.. white would be bad because snow is ... well... white...

    Obviously the color of the vehicle is a personal preference and it has really little to do with plowing snow(i.e. a blue truck does not plow better than a green...). If you want to be noticed then get the proper lighting.. i.e at bare minimum light bar/beacon...
