About This Quiz
Aside from a house, the biggest purchase you're likely to make is a vehicle. The truck you buy is a huge investment and ideally, you want this thing to last you a very long time. And since you're buying a truck, it's pretty clear you need it to do more work than you'd expect out of a VW Bug or some other little car.
Your truck is going to be an important part of your life, so how it looks is going to reflect on you in some way. No doubt you want it to look as good as it can the first time you take it out for a drive and that means paint. The color of your truck is the first thing you and everyone else is going to notice. All the cool features in the world will come secondary.
Since the paint color is such an important facet of your truck, it might say a lot more about you than you realize. It's really a reflection of the kind of person you are. In fact, it's so much related to who you are we bet we can guess the color of your truck just by asking you a few questions about yourself and that truck of yours. Buckle up and take the quiz to find out!

If we opened the door to your truck right now would we see any junk on the floor in front of the passenger seat?

I'd rather they didn't bring that.
Let's say you open your door right into a cement pillar and dent it. What do you do?
Buff it out as best as I can.

Is it important that your truck can tow a lot of weight behind it?
