    Hello fellow 4Runner owners! Decided that my 4Runner needs a new paint job and can't decide between two paint options. Need your guys help! Matte green with black detailing or matte white with black detailing? Here is a photo of my 4Runner as is.IMG_20170925_185402.jpg

    Do you plan on doing the job professionally? Matte paintjobs aren't just the set and forget kinda paint that a factory OEM paint job is. They do require a little more upkeep.

    Yes I was planning to get it painted professionally and then get a protective layer put over the paint job.

    Sweet deal. I'd personally go for a matte gunmetal. I've seen it on a few cars and it looks awesome. Out of the two choices you provided however totally the matte white. White 4Runners in general look awesome.
