Picked up my "Forest" 2022 AT4 HD a couple weeks ago


Recommended Posts

Had a Forest Metallic Green AT4 on order and of course been waiting for many months like everyone else.....

 

Yesterday, received a slightly frantic call saying a white AT4 deal just fell out and did I want it? Of course I would and bought her today! As I was walking out, I spied this dually in Forest Metallic Green. I have to say, I was relieved I did not wait for this color.

 

Although it looked amazing in the limited amount of videos/photos on-line, in person it was a different story. In direct sunlight, it has a lot of gold sparkle in it. Looking at it with polarized sunglasses just exacerbates it and shows a lot of application issues. As one person above noted, it was blotchy and looked like it would be difficult to color match.

 

I love the color at every angle, except when looking squarely at it in direct sunlight. I am sorry I did not take a close up shot, but this was the best I could do running out the store. The color does look gorgeous to me in this photo! Just make sure you look at it in the sun to see if you really like it (never buy a vehicle at night... lesson learned years ago!). I'm sure others will love this color, just not my cup of tea.... I sure wish the AT4 came in Quicksilver!

Very nice!  I haven't seen many 1 ton duallies in the new body style.

I agree its one of those old man 70s colors that gets revamped,  that the manufactures just cant let die.   Sometimes with the right wheel and trim combos you can make it look alright

I picked this up a couple weeks ago. A long time friend is a GM at a local GMC Dealer. It was not even on the lot yet. I basically bought it out of the pipeline. It was a little stressful not seeing the color in person on any GM trucks since it is new for 2022. It showed up and I loved it!! My last 10 or so trucks have been all Black, Silver, Grey or White, so this is a welcome change., It is a 6.6 gasser. I traded my 2021 Silverado 2500HD Custom that I bought at the beginning of May. It only had 5,100 miles, but I was offered a good amount over what I paid for it on a trade towards this one. Love the color and I swapped my Running Boards and my Fuel Wheels with 35x12.5x20 tires over from the other truck.

Absolutely love this color and have mine on order.  Any chance you have some additional photos showing it in some different lighting situations?  Just curious to see how the color comes through in various lighting scenarios.  Also, did you smoke out those fender lights? Lastly, you mentioned you swapped the running boards.  Are those in the picture the off-road high clearance factory steps?

 

Thanks!
