Tuxedo Black

Word on the street is the paint, along with red, were made in Japan and due to recent issues in Japan the color is no longer available. Any takers on the truth to this?

Yeah, that's not true. Any paint company can get the paint formula and mix their colors together in the right quantities and create any factory car/truck color. Beautiful truck by the way. How are you liking the 6.7?

Really? I find it hard to believe that they wouldn't/couldn't get another company to mix their paint stateside. Any paintshop can match the paint color.

Well then, I retract my previous statement. That sucks. The tuxedo black trucks look awesome, hopefully things in Japan will get better soon.

I agree with you I don't know why they can't find a local supplier. I did a google search and it did suspend some reds also. I haven't got to enjoy my truck at all been sitting on my butt with a tore achilies tendon for two months.

A Contract would stop them from just getting the paint from some other company i would think

Second thoughts,Maybe the new trucks will Glow in the Dark and be an Added safety feature

It's Really Scarry how dependent we are on other Countrys!

I just Replaced my bearings/race and seals in my trailer and just about every part had China Printed on it It was even printed in the Rubber on the seals...

my vermillion red was built last week and i know of another black one that was built aswell. I have heard the same but i am not sure of the severity of the shortage, are they just discouraging dealers from ordering them until they get some more? I would think that if the facility couldnt supply the product that the contract could be broken fairly easily. but thats just my two cents, my red one would look cool if glows in the dark!
