Any brown trucks out there?

I rarley see any brown trucks out there. Does anyone have one? I dont even know what color the factory named it when it came out but I'm sure someone knows what I'm talking about. It is like a chocolate brown color.

If anyone has a side profile of their brown truck I would love to see it. I'm working on a paint scheme for my truck on top of all the other stuff I have going. Thanks!

A tired warrior of the 1980s in a world of low profile tires, front wheel drive, and plastic bumpers, where people stay in their houses until snowplows move the offending substance from their paths, too helpless to travel without AAA and chains and salt, clearing their windows with longhandled brushes while gently stepping around in the snow trying to stay nice and dry.

I'm not sure if this counts, but it's mostly brown.
